June 2014 1

2 FP7 ICT Areas of Research 2011-2013

Click and describe Technology roadblocks ARTEMIS ENIAC 2 2

3 The future FP7 comes to an end this year. The Commission want to carry on funding Research and Innovation The replacement scheme <click> is called Horizon 2020 – it is still under development and not all the details are yet public. What follows is what we know today, and are reasonably sure that it represents the future. is now!

4 What is new? A single programme (FP7 + CIP + EIT)
Strong focus on societal challenges (game changing for ICT…) More innovation Reaching out to non-traditional actors More risk taking Strengthened support for high-tech SMEs More open, light & fast schemes Budget 79 B € (at current prices) Horizon 2020 must address current challenges and opportunities. It will be a break from the past. The main requirements stand out: A less complicated swifter scheme and better coupling between research and the marketplace. The first step is to amalgamate the three predecessors programmes into a single entity With a single set of rules, less paperwork, and faster response. attracting the best researchers and innovators regardless of where they are located All forms of innovation will be included, including innovation in services and social innovation. Support will also be given to develop the market and legal frameworks for innovations to be deployed, such as on public procurement, standard setting and regulations. seamless funding then of research through innovation and beyond to the threshold of commercial exploitation. Previously separate activities will be brought together to focus on the societal challenges such as health, clean energy and transport. But the overall aims remain: <click> Growth Jobs Competitiveness and Horizon 2020 sets out to make that easier

5 H2020: What’s Important? Societal Challenges Excellent Science
Industrial leadership Excellent Science is a fundamental But its application is important <click> This gives rise to the Three Pillars upon which H2020 is based Excellent Science Industrial Leadership Societal challenges So how is this being arranged?

6 Main elements of H2020 A simple funding model:
100% Direct Costs + 25% Faster time to grant, Less audits Time-to-grant of 8 months ("5 + 3 months”) Dedication of budgets to key topics SME Research & Innovation, Energy and FET Fast Track to Innovation Pilot: A Fast Track to Innovation pilot is to be launched in 2015 : The main elements of the compromise are that the funding will be simpler than it has been in the past, The money is simpler: For research, The Commission will pay for all of the eligible direct costs that are incurred a the project, plus 25% as a contribution to the indirect costs of the participants. If the project is about innovation, which means that it is closer to market than research then the 100% becomes 70%. The time to Grant is to be 8 months from the call deadline. <Breath><change gear> The 25% may make difficulties in large Infrastructure projects so there is a ‘get out of jail free card for them A number of adjustments have been made to the Specific Programme And there has been some earmarking of budgets in favour of SMEs, open calls in the Future and Emerging Technologies area and in the Energy domain INNOVATION and Simplification

7 Research and innovation actions
To establish new knowledge and/or to explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution. May include basic and applied research, technology development and integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment.

8 Innovation actions Producing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services. May include prototyping, testing, demonstrating, piloting, large-scale product validation and market replication.

9 Coordination and support actions
Actions consisting primarily of accompanying measures such as: standardisation, dissemination, awareness-raising and communication, networking, coordination or support services, policy dialogues mutual learning exercises and studies, including design studies for new infrastructure may also include complementary activities of networking and coordination between programmes in different countries. Single Participant Possible

10 Actions supported by grants
Research and innovation actions Innovation actions PPPs JTIs Pre-commercial procurement & Public procurement of innovative solutions Co- fund Coordination and support actions SME instrument Photonics, HPC, 5G, FoF, Green veh, etc ENIAC + ARTEMIS + EPoSS = ECSEL Think SBRI

11 SME instrument in Horizon 2020
So how will Horizon 2020 work for SMEs? 11

12 SME support: integrated approach
Eurostars II Enhancing Innovation Capacity Market-driven Innovation Access to Risk Finance SME instrument Collaborative projects 'Innovation in SMEs' 20 % budgetary target in Industrial & Social In a number of ways Firstly the highly successful SME specific Eurostars programme will continue. This si a bottom up process involving National agencies as the pay masters SMEs will be welcome in all of the Collaborative projects where they are suited and in some cases their presence may be mandatory. The novel access to Risk Finance and similar activities in the Industrial Leadership pillar which we will hear about later will be there to support them. BUT most importantly There is to be this new bottom up Instrument specifically targeted at SMEs The first thing to note is this it is NOT The SAME as the old “Research for the benefit of SME’s” instrument This has, under various names been a feature of EU Research for at least three Frameworks

13 SME instrument ? IDEA business coaching throughout the project MARKET
Concept & Feasibility Assessment Demonstration Market Replication Research Development Commercialisation SME window EU financial facilities Procurement 10 Page proposal 50 k€ Grant 10% success rate Delivers Business plan etc = First Commercialisation Plan Based upon First Commercialisation Plan 1 – 5 M€ Grant 50% success rate No Direct Financial support Mentoring etc by Support Projects It will work like this from Idea to Market An SME starts out with new idea. and can then get small grant to pursue the idea. If that comes good there’s a second grant available to do the next step And Thirdlly there are supporting schemes to help with the commercialisation. Gotchas: Money to SMEs Only Strict limit on no of applications by given company Intro:

17 Remember the three pillars
Societal Challenges Industrial leadership Excellent Science The overall workprogramme has to cover all of the three pillars Excellent Science, Social Challenges and Industrial Leadership

18 Industrial Leadership Excellence in the Science Base
Europe 2020 priorities Industrial Leadership Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies ICT Nanotech., Materials, Manuf. and Processing Biotechnology Space Access to risk finance Innovation in SMEs Excellence in the Science Base Frontier research (ERC) Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Skills and career development (Marie Curie) Research infrastructures Societal Challenges Health, demographic change and wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture and the bio-based economy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies Secure Societies This is a picture of the whole workprogramme. and the way in which it will be subdivided Let’s look for the ICT Top right we can see the Industrial Leadership pillar an Item ICT, It has a subdivision called LEIT: Leadership in Enabling Industrial Technologies This is where the main ICT element lives. This workprogramme element <click> will define the core ICT activity I guess the budget here will be about €6 or €7 Billion Euros. But the ICT also appears in other places, <click> its all over the Societal challenges, so there will be ICT elements in the Work Programme sections for secure, clean and efficient energy, as there will be in climate action etc. There will also be ICT in the Excellence in the Science Base pillar, principally in the research infrastructure space where there is interest in very high power computing and in the Future and Emerging Technologies area. So there will be many Work Programme sections which an ICT organisation might want to read and pay attention to.
