1 Established by the European Commission © Art & Build Architect / Montois Partners / credits: S. Brison The European Research Council ERC An Overview with Focus on the Czech Republic Jean-Pierre BOURGUIGNON ERC President Prague, 30 October 2014

2 Established by the European Commission │ 2 ERC after 7 Years

3 Established by the European Commission  Investigator-driven progamme supporting frontier research through a bottom-up, pan-European competition in all fields of science and humanities  Evaluation is based strictly on the quality of the research proposal and of the principal investigator  Scientific governance is done by an independent Scientific Council of 22 members which has full authority over the funding strategy and the choice of the evaluators │ 2 ERC in European Funding of Research

4 Established by the European Commission Starting Grants starters (2-7 years after PhD) up to € 2.0 Mio for 5 years Advanced Grants track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years up to € 3.5 Mio for 5 years Proof-of-Concept bridging gap between research - earliest stage of marketable innovation up to €150,000 for ERC grant holders Consolidator Grants consolidators (7-12 years after PhD) up to € 2.75 Mio for 5 years ERC Funding Schemes

5 Established by the European Commission │ 5  4 500 researchers funded (65% are at an early-career stage); 64 nationalities represented (EU has 28!) ERC after 7 Years  Highly competitive (average success rate tending to 10%)  Grants located in almost 600 different institutions in 30 countries  50% of grantees in 50 institutions  Benchmarking effect: impact on national programmes and agencies; national funding for best "runners-up"  Efficient and fast grant management  Highly recognized by the research community beyond Europe  30,000 publications acknowledging ERC support by September 2014

6 Established by the European Commission │ 6 Priority to Young Scientists Two-thirds of ERC grants to early-stage Principal Investigators.

7 Established by the European Commission │ 7 Developing a New Generation On average each ERC project team has six members. 2/3 of team members are in the initial phase of their career. + 15 000 PhD and post-doc researchers working in ERC teams.

8 Established by the European Commission │ 8 ERC Grants and Countries of HI ERC calls 2007-2013 *) Host institution refers to the organisation with which the first grant agreement was signed Over 4,300 projects have been selected, one fifth corresponding to women PIs.

9 Established by the European Commission Top European Institutions Hosting at least 30 ERC Grantees by Funding Schemes StG/CoG 2007-2013 AdG 2008-2013 First legal signatories of the grant agreement Data as of 21/08/2014

10 Established by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Horizon 2020 is the European Union's funding programme for research and innovation for 2014 – 2020 "supporting activities covering the whole spectrum from idea to market".  Three principal pillars:  Excellent science  Industrial leadership  Societal challenges │ 10

11 Established by the European Commission  European Research Council Frontier research │ 11 Horizon 2020 Excellent Science Pillar  Future and Emerging Technologies Collaborative research to open new fields of research and innovation  Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions Opportunities for training and career development  Research Infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) Ensuring access to world-class facilities

12 Established by the European Commission FP7 budget € 50.5 billion ERC budget € 7.5 billion H2020 budget € 77 billion ERC budget € 13 billion Horizon 2020 Budget

13 Established by the European Commission │ 13 ERC Delivers  30 000 publications acknowledging ERC support by September 2014  7% of these publications were in the top 1% most cited in their scientific field and year of publication  20% of completed LS and PE projects reported at least one patent (on average 2 patents reported per project)

14 Established by the European Commission │ 14 Czech Republic at ERC

15 Established by the European Commission │ 15 Proposals Based in the Czech Republic 344 proposals evaluated from researchers based at Czech HIs

16 Established by the European Commission │ 16 Total AdG proposals: 91 Total StG/CoG proposals: 173 (without StG2007) Evaluated Proposals from CR

17 Established by the European Commission │ 17 10 ERC Grants Based in the CR Current host institutions; data as of 21/08/2014

18 Established by the European Commission │ 18 ERC Host Institutions in the CR Current host institutions; data as of 21/08/2014

19 Established by the European Commission │ 19 ERC Grants versus Top Publications *) Host institution refers to the organisation with which the first grant agreement was signed

20 Established by the European Commission │ 20 ERC Grants versus Global R&D Effort

21 Established by the European Commission │ 21 Mobility of Researchers Current host institutions; data as of 21/08/2014 75 Czech researchers applied with a HI abroad (in 16 different countries) 12 Czech researchers hold an ERC grant abroad: AT (3), CH (3), UK (3), DE (2), FR (1) 3 foreign researchers holding an ERC grant in the Czech Republic

22 Established by the European Commission Success Rates per Country of HI *) First legal signatories of the first grant agreement taken into account

23 Established by the European Commission │ 23 Success Rates versus Applications

24 Established by the European Commission │ 24 EU13 Countries at ERC

25 Established by the European Commission │ 25 Current host institutions; data as of 21.8.2014 Top HIs in EU13 Countries

26 Established by the European Commission │ 26 ERC Grants Based in EU13 Countries 88% of grantees in EU13 countries are nationals of the host country (70% for EU15) 85% of grantees in EU13 countries were resident in the host country at the time of application (90% for EU15)

27 Established by the European Commission │ 27 *) Host institution refers to the organisation with which the first grant agreement was signed ERC Grants and Top Publications

28 Established by the European Commission │ 28 Success Rates by Area of HI Share of EU13 public researchers in EU & AC = 16% Share of EU13 research investment (GERD) in EU & AC = 3%

29 Established by the European Commission │ 29 Evaluation Outcome Success rate step1 EU13: 7% Success rate step1 EU15: 22% Success rate step2 EU13: 43% Success rate step2 EU15: 47%

30 Established by the European Commission │ 30 Successful EU13 Nationals in Calls Current host institutions; data as of 21/08/2014 55% of EU13 nationals with a grant are based abroad

31 Established by the European Commission │ 31 * Number of instances that experts of a certain country of origin are contributing to the ERC peer review Averaged over the first 13 ERC calls 26% of the ERC panel members were women International Participation to ERC Panels

32 Established by the European Commission Widening European Participation WG Contribute to a truly inclusive European culture of competitiveness in science Increase participation in ERC calls of researchers from the EU’s less research-performing regions Facilitate systematic debate and interactions among ERC grantees and young promising scientists from EU’s less research-performing regions │ 32

33 Established by the European Commission  ERC grants correlate very closely with national research investment and scientific output  Low application rates in general from most of EU13 countries and some evidence best researchers from EU13 not applying (Reputational risk? Sufficient national funding? ERC grants disrupt local systems?)  EU13 nationals applying from outside EU13 countries have same success rate as EU15 nationals  Proposals from EU13 countries have same success rate as proposals from EU15 countries at step 2 – the issue is not with interview or remote reviews │ 2 Conclusions
