2 What is Horizon 2020 A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives Framework Programme 7 (FP7) Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms of innovation Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g., health, clean energy and transport Simplified access, for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond Horizon 2020 Overview

3 European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Excellent Science Base European Research Council (ERC) Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Research Infrastructures Industrial Leadership and Competitive Frameworks Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies:  ICT; Nanotechnologies; Advanced Materials; Biotechnology; Advanced Manufacturing and Processing; and Space Access to risk finance Innovation in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) Tackling Societal Challenges Health, demographics changes and well being Food security, sustainable agriculture marine and maritime research and the bio-economy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action and resource efficiency including raw materials Inclusive and innovative and secure societies Protecting freedom and security in Europe Joint Research Centre (JRC)Euratom (2014-2018) Horizon 2020 Overview

4 Cross-cutting aspects Horizon 2020 – Cross-cutting aspects Aim to widen participation across whole programme to ensure excellence prevails wherever it exists Simplification as a crucial element More bottom-up elements to allow for novel ideas Package of measures to close innovation divide Links to Cohesion policy = building regional research & innovation capacity Boosting support to European Research Area (ERA) priorities – mobility, researcher careers, infrastructures, partnering, knowledge transfer, policy learning Taking account of gender, ethical issues and open access to results

5 Horizon 2020 - Rules for Participation Single set of rules: for everyone (academia & industry) One Project – One Funding Rate Maximum of 100% of direct costs for all types of partners (except for actions close to market, where a 70% max) Indirect eligible costs: a flat rate of 20% of direct eligible costs No real indirect cost option Simple Evaluation Criteria: excellence, implementation, impact New Forms of funding for innovation: including dedicated SME funding instrument Improved rules on Intellectual Property: including new emphasis on Open Access Simplification: including no time-sheets for personnel working full time on a grant Fewer, more targeted controls and audits: audit strategy focused on risk and fraud prevention Horizon 2020 – Rules of Participation
