9 Horizon 2020 Commission proposal

10 Commission proposal of 29 June 2011 and 30 November 2011
EU budget & Horizon 2020 Commission proposal of 29 June 2011 and 30 November 2011 Key challenge: to stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities (cf. R&I) EU budget € 1,025bn Horizon 2020 € 80bn

11 Horizon 2020: What’s new? A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives (FP7, CIP, EIT) Coupling research to innovation - from research to retail, all forms of innovation Simplified access for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond Focus on three pillars: Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenges

12 Excellent science Why:
World class science is the foundation of tomorrow’s technologies, jobs and wellbeing Europe needs to develop, attract and retain research talent Researchers need access to the best infrastructures

13 Excellent science (M€, 2014-20)
European Research Council Frontier research by the best individual teams 13 268 Future and Emerging Technologies Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation 3 100 Marie Curie actions Opportunities for training and career development 5 572 Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructure) - Ensuring access to world-class facilities 2 478

14 Industrial leadership
Why: Strategic investments in key technologies (e.g. advanced manufacturing, micro-electronics) underpin innovation across existing and emerging sectors Europe needs to attract more private investment in research and innovation Europe needs more innovative SMEs to create growth and jobs

15 Industrial leadership (M€, 2014-20)
Leadership in enabling & industrial technologies (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space) 13 781 Access to risk finance Leveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation 3 538 Innovation in SMEs Fostering all forms of innovation in all types of SMEs 619

16 Societal challenges Why:
Concerns of citizens and society/EU policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc) cannot be achieved without innovation Breakthrough solutions come from multi-disciplinary collaborations, including social sciences & humanities Promising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled up

17 Societal challenges (M€, 2014-20)
Health, demographic change and wellbeing 8 033 Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research & the bio-economy 4 152 Secure, clean and efficient energy* 5 782 Smart, green and integrated transport 6 802 Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials 3 160 Inclusive, innovative and secure societies 3 819 *Additional M€ 1788 for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ). Does not include ITER.

18 SSH in Horizon 2020 Included in the Societal Challenge 'Inclusive, innovative and secure societies' Integrated in all Societal Challenges Supported through the 'Excellent Science' part of H2020 (ERC, Marie Curie and Infrastructures) The Societal Challenges will bring together different technologies, sectors, scientific disciplines, social sciences and humanities, and innovation actors to find new solutions to these challenges  Humanistic, cultural, artistic and fine arts perspective are included within the 'Social innovation" framework of the Societal Challenge ' Inclusive, innovative and secure societies'

19 Horizon 2020: Next steps Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on EU budget (including R&I) and Horizon 2020 Mid 2013: Adoption of legislative acts by Parliament and Council on Horizon 2020 1 January 2014: Horizon 2020 starts; launch of 1st calls

20 Open access in FP7 Further information:
What it means in practice: Best effort: strongly encourages researchers & publishers to comply, while guaranteeing scientific freedom Seek information If publishers' policies do not allow compliance, authors request authorisation to self-archive or negotiate amendment with publishers If negotiations unsuccessful, consider submitting to another journal If cannot comply with SC39, inform EC with e.g. publisher’s proof of refusal Further information: More on Open Access and the Commission: Guide to IP Rules for FP7 projects: Find support for the Pilot with OpenAIRE:
