Driving Innovation The future is now!
Driving Innovation 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)
Driving Innovation 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 : 6 INNOVATION and Simplification
Driving Innovation 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.
Driving Innovation 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.
Driving Innovation 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
Driving Innovation 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
