3 Introduction to FP7 1. Background -The Framework Programme (FP) is the European Union's main instrument for funding research and development -FPs have been implemented since 1984, and generally -cover a period of five years -with the last year of one FP overlapping with the first year of the following FP -The current FP is FP6 which will run up to the end of 2006 Background: Framework Programme

4 Introduction to FP7 Background: FP7 1. Background -Overall goal of FP7 is to strengthen EU research and competitiveness -Designed to carry Europe further towards a knowledge economy and society -FP7 is proposed to -Run for seven years, from 2007 to Will not overlap with FP6 FP7 is not yet approved

5 Introduction to FP7 Background: FP7 Budget 1. Background -Overall budget is Euro 72.7 Billion -Equal to Euro 10.4 Billion per year -Higher budget than previous FPs -FP6 total budget equal to Euro 17.5 Billion -FP5 total budget equal to Euro 14.9 Billion

6 Introduction to FP7 Background: FP Budgets 1. Background

7 Introduction to FP7 Structure of FP7 2. FP7 Structure -Four basic components of FP7 -Cooperation -Ideas -People -Capacities -Also, relatively minor component of, non-nuclear actions of the Joint Research Centre

8 Introduction to FP7 2. FP7 Structure CooperationIdeasCapacitiesPeople Support to cooperation between Universities Industry Research centres Public authorities In order to lead key scientific and technology areas Funding for basic or 'frontier' research by individual teams competing at European level Support to Training Mobility Careers development Through reinforced 'Marie Curie actions' In order to strengthen the human resources for European research Enhance research and innovation capacity by developing research infrastructures and supporting Regional research driven clusters SMEs Closer relationships between science and society International cooperation Four Basic Components of FP7 61% of FP7 Budget16% of FP7 Budget10% of FP7 Budget

9 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Component 1: Cooperation Objective: Support the whole range of research activities Carried out in trans-national cooperation From collaborative projects and networks, to The coordination of research programmes Including international cooperation between the EU and third countries Three major axes Collaborative Research – Building up European excellence Joint Technology Initiatives and Technology Platforms Co-ordination among national research programmes & FP7 Cooperation Support to cooperation between Universities Industry Research centres Public authorities In order to lead key scientific and technology areas 61% of FP7 Budget

10 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Collaborative Research -Core of FP7 research funding -Objective is to establish excellent research projects and networks able to attract researchers and investments from Europe and the world -Range of funding schemes, e.g. -Collaborative projects, Networks of Excellence, Co- ordination/support actions -Nine themes for Collaborative Research

11 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Nine Themes for Collaborative Research Health Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials & new production technologies Food, agriculture & biotechnology Information & communication technologies Energy Environment (including climate change) Socio-economic sciences & the humanities Transport (including aeronautics) Security & space Collaborative research organized into 9 themes Themes defined to allow priorities to be adapted to evolving research needs during FP7 Multi-disciplinary approach by cross-thematic approaches to research and technology

12 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Joint Technology Initiatives and Technology Platforms -There are 29 European Technology Platforms (ETPs) -ETPs focus on strategic issues where -Europe's competitiveness, economic growth and welfare depend on important research and technological progress in the medium to long term -ETPs bring together stakeholders, under industrial leadership, to define and implement a Strategic Research Agenda FP7 will contribute to these Strategic Research Agendas when they present true European added value

13 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Joint Technology Initiatives and Technology Platforms Three-stage development process for ETPs Individuals and organizations can apply to join an ETP

14 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Joint Technology Initiatives and Technology Platforms -Joint Technology Initiatives mainly result from the work of an ETP -Joint Technology Initiatives are used when the scale of the resources involved justifies setting up long term public private partnerships -Covering a small number of selected aspects of research in the chosen field FP7 will support a limited number of Joint Technology Initiatives

15 Introduction to FP7 2.1 FP7 Structure: Cooperation Coordination between National Research Programmes -Two measures foreseen -A reinforced ERA-NET scheme (ERA-NET +) -New pilot initiatives undertaken under national research programmes - e.g. GALILEO -Also used to enhance the complementarity between FP7 and activities carried out in the framework of intergovernmental structures such as EUREKA and COST

16 Introduction to FP7 2.2 FP7 Structure: Ideas Component 2: Ideas Objective: Enhance the dynamism, creativity and excellence of European research at the frontier of knowledge By supporting "investigator-driven" research projects by individual teams in competition at the European level EU activities in frontier research will be implemented by a European Research Council (ERC), composed of A scientific Governing Council A dedicated implementation structure.
