7 Horizon 2020 Introduction

8 What is Horizon 2020? The European Union’s funding instrument for research and innovation from Budget of EUR 70,2 billion From research to innovation – from basic research to bringing ideas to the market Focus on societal challenges EU society is facing (e.g. health, clean energy, food security, integrated transport) Promise of simplified access for all

9 Horizon 2020 structure Excellent Science Industrial Leadership
European Research Council (ERC) Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Research Infrastructures Industrial Leadership Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) - ICT, KETs, Space Access to Risk Finance Innovation in SMEs Societal Challenges Health and Wellbeing Food security Transport Energy Climate action Societies Security Widening Participation; Science with and for Society European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) EURATOM Joint Research Centre (JRC)

10 Rationale for 3 Pillars Clear distinction between funding for bottom-up, excellence- based research (Pillar 1: Excellent Science) and research addressing specific challenges (Pillar 3: Societal Challenges) Dedicated part of the programme targeted primarily at industry, in particular Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) (Pillar 2: Industrial Leadership) Programme integrates funding for research and innovation projects funding for innovation projects within all 3 pillars

11 From FP7 to Horizon 2020 FP7 Horizon 2020 Framework Programme
Research themes SME participation important Growing importance of innovation Range of funding rates, complex rules Integrates FP, EIT, CIP Societal Challenges Strong industry focus overall Covering the entire cycle from basic idea to market Single reimbursement rate for all

12 UK performance in FP7 As at July 2013:
UK-based organisations have been awarded €5.2 billion of FP7 funding, (the second highest share by country, after Germany), equivalent to 15% of the programme’s overall budget Academic organisations were awarded 62% of this share (thus 10.9% of the entire FP7 budget went to UK academia), and around 17% to SMEs UK organisations were involved in around 8100 funded projects (the highest number by country) The highest number of European Research Council grants went to the UK, with around 800 grants based at over 75 different host institutions

13 Funding in Horizon 2020 Basic model for research projects
100% direct costs + 25% indirect costs (overhead) Basic model for “innovation” projects 70% direct costs + 25% indirect costs For Universities involved in innovation projects: 100% direct costs Some calls different – e.g. prizes

14 Who will be eligible for funding?
28 EU Member States (Croatia as of 2013) Associate Countries (similar list to FP7 expected) Still under negotiation Some might not sign agreement in time for Horizon 2020 start but can still apply as long as the agreement is signed in time for grant signature. Third countries (funding will depend on GDP) BRIC no longer eligible for automatic funding

15 Work Programmes Two-year work programmes for 2014-15
Harmonised structure across all EC Directorate-Generals Strategic Programme defines overall focus areas Topics structure: “Specific challenge”, “Scope”, “Expected Impact”, “Type of action”

16 Project types CP: Collaborative Project
“Traditional” multi-national, multi-partner collaborative projects 100% - predominantly research 70% - largely closer to market “innovation projects” CSA: Coordination and Support Action “Traditional” multi-national, multi-partner support actions 100% or 70% SME Instrument SMEs only – research can be subcontracted to HEIs cPPP: contractual Public/Private partnership Vehicle to pursue specific technological roadmap. Part funded by industry. EU funding element from Horizon Issue research calls – same funding regime as Horizon 2020 ERANET Research programmes run by network of national funders in specific field part funded by EU from Horizon Issue research calls on their own funding regimes Prizes All or nothing specific competitive calls – content varies PCP: Pre-contractual procurement Non-competitive actions PPI: Public procurement of innovative solutions

17 Pillar 1 – Excellent Science
Horizon 2020 Pillar 1 – Excellent Science

18 Excellent Science Total budget = €21.6 billion
Overall objective: “to strengthen the excellence of European research”

19 Horizon 2020 European Research Council

20 ERC in Horizon 2020 – What can be Funded?
The ERC seeks to fund the best ‘frontier research’ proposals submitted by excellent researchers, with excellence as the single peer review criterion. Will fund projects led by a Principal Investigator, if necessary supported by a team (no need for pan-European collaboration). Will operate on a ‘bottom-up’ basis, without pre-determined research priorities. 25 panels in 3 domains which proposals can be submitted to: Physical Sciences and Engineering Life Sciences Social Sciences and Humanities

21 ERC in H2020– Five Schemes Starting Grants Consolidator Grants
Advanced Grants Synergy Grants Proof of Concept Please see the ERC’s April 2013 statement on the timing of the 2014 calls:

22 Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

23 MSCA in Horizon 2020 Operates in a ‘bottom-up’ basis, open to all research and innovation areas Mobility is a key requirement Key areas supported: Fostering new skills by means of excellent initial training of researchers Nurturing excellence by means of cross-border and cross-sector mobility Stimulating innovation by means of cross-fertilisation of knowledge Co-funding of activities

24 MSCA – 4 Schemes FP7 Horizon 2020 ITN Innovative Training Networks IEF
(Early Stage Researchers) IEF IF Individual Fellowships (Experienced Researchers) IOF IIF CIG IAPP RISE Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (Exchange of Staff) IRSES COFUND Cofunding or regional, national and international programmes

25 Individual Fellowships
2 strands in IF scheme: Outgoing Fellowship - (MS/AC to third country), with mandatory return phase European Fellowship - (any country to MS/AC) 2 main changes to FP7: Optional intersectoral secondment in a MS/AC during the fellowship ICPC return phase could be removed

26 Innovative Training Networks
European Training Networks (minimum of three participants) Joint Doctorates (at least three academic participants who can deliver a doctoral degree) European Industrial Doctorates (one academic participant and one  non-academic participant) Participants defined as ‘academic’ and ‘non-academic’ Early stage researchers (ESRs) only The Innovative Doctoral Programme strand will move to the COFUND scheme.

27 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange
Focused on exchange of staff Amalgamation of IAPP and IRSES with 7 main changes Project to be based on new or existing ‘joint research project’ Participants - ‘academic’ / ‘non-academic’ NOT ‘public sector’ /‘private sector’ Minimum 3 participants - 3 different countries (2 MS/AC) If all participants MS/AC, minimum 1 academic +1 non-academic participant from different countries Secondment period - 1 to 12 months- doesn’t need to be continuous One simplified funding system- ‘unit cost’ with country co-efficient factors Projects between research months

28 COFUND Funding model in COFUND will differ from FP7
Supports 2 programmes: Doctoral programmes (Innovative Doctoral Programmes) Fellowship programmes Funding model in COFUND will differ from FP7 Standard ‘unit costs’- fixed amounts per researcher /year Maximum EU contribution to single legal entity/ year Programmes up to 60 months Shorter time to grant All researchers should be covered by full social security Principles of the Charter and Code should set out provisions for ESRs

42 Innovation in SMEs Replaces Research for SMEs instrument (R4SME)
“The specific objective is to stimulate growth by means of increasing the levels of innovation in SMEs, covering their different innovation needs over the whole innovation cycle for all types of innovation, thereby creating more fast-growing, internationally active SMEs.” Replaces Research for SMEs instrument (R4SME) Dedicated SME instrument Target highly innovative SMEs looking to develop and grow in international environment Single company or collaborative Allows for out-sourcing of research Three stage support through innovation cycle One project can access all three in order One application per year, in all fields across LEIT and Pillar 3

43 Innovation in SMEs Stage 1: Feasibility Stage 2: Innovation Activity
6-9 month project €50k lump sum funding to assess technological / commercial potential of project Stage 2: Innovation Activity 12 – 24 month duration €1m - €3m funding Emphasis on demonstration and market replication Stage 3: Commercialisation phase No direct funding Simplified access to debt and equity financial instruments Assistance with IPR protection

44 Access to Risk Finance Funding for single beneficiaries for investment in research and innovation projects. Two types of funding will be provided: Debt funding: loans and guarantees for investment in a project Equity funding: investment of capital in a project Funding is mainly designed for early stage SMEs, or in some cases at the expansion stage Some risk financing for a basic or applied research project by a public organisation (university, research institute) is also planned, under the new ‘Risk-Sharing Finance Facility’ Funds will be managed by the European Investment Bank See this UKRO portal article for more details: See this webpage for information on the RSFF funds available to universities: Funding is likely to be around €150,000 plus per loan.

61 Joint Technology Initiatives
Horizon 2020 Joint Technology Initiatives

62 Joint Technology Initiatives in Horizon 2020
JTIs Bio-Based Industries Clean Sky Electronic Components and Systems Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Innovative Medicines

63 Joint Technology Initiatives in Horizon 2020
Funded through societal challenges Currently going through political process At the proposal stage (published in July 2013) Agreement needed between Council of the EU and the European Parliament ITRE committee expected to appoint a rapporteur for each JTI Aim is to launch the first calls in Spring 2014 In July 2013, the European Commission published its Communication on PPPs in Horizon The term 'PPP' encompasses both Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) and contractual PPPs. Five JTIs are planned to operate in Horizon 2020, which would each be managed by a separate legal entity (a Joint Undertaking). Some eight contractual PPPs will also be launched, for which the calls would appear within the Horizon 2020 work programmes. For both JTIs and contractual PPPs, the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation would apply. Each JTI must go through a separate decision-making process to the main Horizon 2020 legislation, which will result in what is known as a 'Delegated Act', and this involves a consultation with the European Parliament. This is because the JTIs fall under a different Article of the EU Treaty (Article 187), as they involve setting up a new legal entity in the form of a Joint Undertaking. The Parliament's Industry, Research and Energy Committee is expected to appoint a rapporteur for each proposed JTI by the end of September. In parallel, discussions are currently ongoing within working groups of the Council of the EU (Member States' representatives and the Commission) on each JTI. Following the resolution of key issues in the Parliament and Council discussions over the next few months, the aim is for the proposal for each JTI to be adopted in time to set up the necessary structure and launch the first calls in spring UKRO will keep ELOs and Sponsors informed as these discussions continue.
