Cliff Funnell UK H2020 Transport NCP

2 4/11/2017 What is Horizon 2020 The new European Union programme for research and innovation for A budget of just over €79 billion; 30 per cent higher in real terms than the 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 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 billion euro EU contribution (5.05 billion GBP) 2 670 UK organisations participate in FP7 projects UK is 2nd in number of participants and budget share amongst EU-28 (and 1st in both participations and budget share in 2012 and 2013) Success rate for applications is 23.1 % (higher than EU average: 20.9%) 3

4 Major Simplification 4/11/2017
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 New approach to WPs and calls
4/11/2017 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 Industrial leadership
4/11/2017 Three priorities Excellent science Industrial leadership Societal challenge s

7 Coverage of the full innovation chain

8 Excellent Science Industrial Leadership Societal Challenges
3 Pillar Structure Excellent Science European Research Council Marie Skłodowska- Curie actions Research Infrastructures Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) Industrial Leadership Innovation in SMEs Access to Risk Finance Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies 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 Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation Science with and for Society EIT JRC 8 8

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

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

12 Work programme cycle in H2020
