Horizon 2020 Commission proposal
EU budget & Horizon 2020 EU budget € 1,025bn 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) Horizon 2020 € 80bn
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 Horizon 2020: What’s new?
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
European Research Council Frontier research by the best individual teams Future and Emerging Technologies Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation Marie Curie actions Opportunities for training and career development Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructure) - Ensuring access to world-class facilities Excellent science (M€, )
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
Leadership in enabling & industrial technologies (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space) Access to risk finance Leveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation Innovation in SMEs Fostering all forms of innovation in all types of SMEs 619 Industrial leadership (M€, )
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
Health, demographic change and wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research & the bio-economy Secure, clean and efficient energy* Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials Inclusive, innovative and secure societies Societal challenges (M€, ) *Additional M€ 1788 for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ). Does not include ITER.
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'
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 1 st calls Horizon 2020: Next steps
