3The futureFP7 comes to an end this year. The Commission want to carry on funding Research and InnovationThe replacement scheme <click> is called Horizon 2020 – it is still under developmentand 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!
4What is new? A single programme (FP7 + CIP + EIT) Strong focus on societal challenges (game changing for ICT…)More innovationReaching out to non-traditional actorsMore risk takingStrengthened support for high-tech SMEsMore open, light & fast schemesBudget 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 schemeand better coupling between research and the marketplace.The first step is to amalgamate the three predecessors programmes into a single entityWith a single set of rules, less paperwork, and faster response.attracting the best researchers and innovators regardless of where they are locatedAll 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 tothe threshold of commercial exploitation.Previously separate activities will be brought together to focus on the societal challengessuch as health, clean energy and transport.But the overall aims remain: <click> Growth Jobs Competitiveness and Horizon 2020 setsout to make that easier
5H2020: What’s Important? Societal Challenges Excellent Science IndustrialleadershipExcellent Science is a fundamentalBut its application is important <click>This gives rise to the Three Pillars upon which H2020 is basedExcellent ScienceIndustrial LeadershipSocietal challengesSo how is this being arranged?
6Main elements of H2020 A simple funding model: 100% Direct Costs + 25%Faster time to grant, Less auditsTime-to-grant of 8 months ("5 + 3 months”)Dedication of budgets to key topicsSME Research & Innovation, Energy and FETFast Track to Innovation Pilot:A Fast Track to Innovation pilot is to be launched in 2015 :The main elements of the compromise are thatthe funding will be simpler than it has been in the past,The money is simpler: For research, The Commission will pay for all of theeligible direct costs that are incurred a the project, plus 25% as a contributionto the indirect costs of the participants.If the project is about innovation, which means that it is closer to market thanresearch 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 themA number of adjustments have been made to the Specific ProgrammeAnd there has been some earmarking of budgets in favour of SMEs,open calls in the Future and Emerging Technologies area and in the Energy domainINNOVATION and Simplification
7Research 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 includebasic and applied research,technology development and integration,testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment.
8Innovation actionsProducing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services.May includeprototyping,testing,demonstrating,piloting,large-scale product validation and market replication.
9Coordination and support actions Actions consisting primarily of accompanying measures such as:standardisation,dissemination,awareness-raising and communication,networking,coordination or support services,policy dialoguesmutual learning exercises and studies, including design studies for new infrastructuremay also include complementary activities of networking and coordination between programmes in different countries.Single Participant Possible

11SME instrument in Horizon 2020 So how will Horizon 2020 work for SMEs?11
12SME support: integrated approach Eurostars II Enhancing Innovation Capacity Market-driven InnovationAccess to Risk FinanceSME instrumentCollaborative projects'Innovation in SMEs'20 % budgetarytarget in Industrial & SocialIn a number of waysFirstly the highly successful SME specific Eurostars programme will continue.This si a bottom up process involving National agencies as the pay mastersSMEs 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 Leadershippillar 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 SMEsThe first thing to note is this it is NOT The SAME as the old “Research for the benefitof SME’s” instrumentThis has, under various names been a feature of EU Research for at least three Frameworks
