1 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Horizon 2020 and transport funding Cliff Funnell UK H2020 Transport NCP

2 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation What is Horizon 2020 The new European Union programme for research and innovation for 2014-2020 A budget of just over €79 billion; 30 per cent higher in real terms than the 2007-2013 period A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area: Responding to the economic crisis to invest in jobs and growth Addressing people’s concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology

3 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Overall UK Performance in FP7 EU provides up to 20% of HEIs‘ external research income UK received 15.2% of FP7 spend (second only to Germany – 16.1%) Benefiting from a total of 6.142 billion euro EU contribution (5.05 billion GBP) 2 670 UK organisations participate in 9 155 FP7 projects UK is 2 nd in number of participants and budget share amongst EU-28 (and 1 st in both participations and budget share in 2012 and 2013) Success rate for applications is 23.1 % (higher than EU average: 20.9%)

4 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Major Simplification A single set of rules for all funding under Horizon 2020 Fewer, more flexible, funding instrument /More coherent with other new EU Programmes Simpler reimbursement: 1 project = 1 funding rate 100% of the total eligible costs (70% for innovation actions) Single flat rate for indirect costs (25% of eligible costs) Faster time to grant - Within 8 months of call deadline in most cases Simplification in grant agreements e.g. no time-sheets for personnel working full time on a project

5 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation New approach to WPs and calls More strategic work programmes Focusing on areas where EU level action has greatest impact With a coherent set of actions from research to innovation Greater integrated across different parts of Horizon 2020 Less prescriptive calls More open to innovative proposals Stronger emphasis on impact Stimulating inter-disciplinary projects Two year work programmes Greater participation in setting work programmes, including by citizens More advanced notice for applicants

6 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation Three priorities Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenge s

7 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation 7 Coverage of the full innovation chain

8 Technology Strategy Board Driving Innovation JRC 3 Pillar Structure Industrial Leadership Innovation in SMEs Access to Risk Finance Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies Excellent Science European Research Council Marie Skłodowska- Curie actions Research Infrastructures Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) Societal Challenges Health, demographic change and wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, forestry, marine, maritime, inland water and bio-economy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials Secure societies – protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies EIT Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation Science with and for Society

10 Transport challenge budget  6,339 M € for 7 years 2014-2020  50/50 JTIs/collaborative calls  Clean Sky  SESAR  Fuel Cells & Hydrogen (contribution)  [Shift2Rail]  867 M € for WP 2014-15

11 Work Programme: new features  challenge-based approach: broad latitude for applicants to devise innovative solutions  broader topics, less prescription, focus on impact  biennial WP, annual calls (in most cases)  1 topic = various projects (in most cases)  no 'ringfencing' of topic budget/ranking (in most cases)  simplified types of actions/funding rates (research and innovation actions: 100%; innovation actions: 70%/100%;…)  2-stage evaluation for most topics  keywords and tags for easy access to information
