1 Stockholm 3 April 2008 People Programme Marie Curie Actions The mobility programme in FP7 Fredrik Olsson Hector Marie Curie Actions Reintegration Grants

2 + Ideas – Frontier Research Capacities – Research Capacity People – Marie Curie Actions Cooperation – Collaborative research JRC (non-nuclear) JRC (nuclear)Euratom PEOPLE Programme in FP7

3 Budget for FP7 EC Programme million Euro (current prices) —Cooperation million Euro —Ideas million Euro —People million Euro —Capacities million Euro —JRC EC Programme million Euro Euratom Programme million Euro (current prices) —Fusion Energy Research million Euro —Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection 287 million Euro —JRC Nuclear Research Activities 517 million Euro  Annual budget: ≈40% increase compared to FP6 on average

4 Budget for FP7

5 Why is there a People Programme?

6 Why a People programme? Do we produce enough researchers? Who produces the researchers? Are enough researchers staying in research Is research put into use as it should? Where do they go? Industry? Academia? US, Japan…? Is research attractive enough? Are the researchers attractive enough?

7 Only at most 1/3 of PhD will be able to establish a career in academia 2/3 will get a job elsewhere Why a People programme?

8 PEOPLE Programme Two strands: 1.Policy actions Researchers’ partnership 2.Marie Curie Actions Initial Training Networks Individual Fellowships Reintegration Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways Cofunding …

9 Researchers’ partnership four key areas Open recruitment and portability of grants Meeting social security and supplementary pension needs of mobile researchers Attractive employment and working conditions Enhancing training, skills and experience of researchers

10 Researchers’ partnership 1. open recruitment and grants portability Issues: Open, competitive recruitment is essential for research system in pursuit of excellence Public sector recruitment in the EU is predominantly organised at national level, exibiting widespread internal recruitment at institutional level Current limitations on trans-national portability of individual grants by many national research funding agencies inhibits mobility

11 Researchers’ partnership 1. open recruitment and grants portability Actions under consideration: review national legislation and practices inhibiting open, competion-based, incl. recognition of qualifications and experience develop good practice-based guidelines to encourage public sector employers and funders to practice open recruitment, incl. the setting of targets for external and trans-national recruitment ensure that all publicly funded positions are openly advertised online and improve practical support for mobile researchers set ambitious targets for trans-national portability of individual grants

12 Researchers’ partnership 2. social security and pension rights Issues: Acquisition and transfer of social security benefits and pension rights among the most problematic areas In particular young researchers often have limited access to social security and pension benefits social security co-ordination rules may not fit usual researchers’ career paths (repeated short-term contracts

13 Researchers’ partnership 2. social security and pension rights Examples of actions under consideration: Enhance targeted information and cooperation between MS authorities and organisations dealing with researchers and social security/suppl. pensions develop bi- and multilateral agreements on derogations of existing legal provisions (Regulation 1408/71) for researchers; encourage MS agreements with third countries to ensure that in all publicly funded projects post-docs researchers receive full social security coverage to explore a Recommendation on easing transfer of suppl. pension rights; to encourage pan-European pension funds to open up schemes targeted at researchers

14 Researchers’ partnership 3. employment and working conditions Issues: Employment policies within many public research institutions are often rigid, with widespread segmentation between protected « insiders » and unprotected « outsiders ». Flexicurity is highly relevant to better balance the situation for researchers Under-utilisation of end-of-career researchers Low priority overall for reconciling professional and private life

15 Researchers’ partnership 4. training and skills development Issues: many early-stage researchers are not receiving the right set of skills to function effectively in modern academia or to make smooth intersectoral transitions Skills equipment is only partly a matter of formal training; the environment in which researchers are trained is also essential Also researchers at later stages need to keep in touch with the latest developments and being trained for new positions during their career (e.g. admin or leadership positions)

16 PEOPLE Marie Curie Actions in FP7 Overall scope Human resource development in R&D in Europe Numerous, well-trained, motivated researchers Attract students to research careers Attract researchers to Europe Skills and sustainable career development Continuity of previous Framework programme, with focus on structuring impact, while simplifying

17 Initial training of researchers Initial Training Networks* Initial training of researchers Initial Training Networks* Life-long training and career development Intra-European Fellowships / European Reintegration Grants Co-funding of regional/national/international programmes Life-long training and career development Intra-European Fellowships / European Reintegration Grants Co-funding of regional/national/international programmes Industry dimension Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways* Industry dimension Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways* International dimension Outgoing & Incoming* International Fellowships; International Cooperation Scheme; International Reintegration grants; Support to researcher ‘diasporas’* International dimension Outgoing & Incoming* International Fellowships; International Cooperation Scheme; International Reintegration grants; Support to researcher ‘diasporas’* Specific actions Mobility and career enhancement actions; Researchers’ nights; Excellence awards Specific actions Mobility and career enhancement actions; Researchers’ nights; Excellence awards * Open to third-country nationals PEOPLE Marie Curie Actions in FP7

18 Objectives Strengthen and structure Early Stage Training at European level Improve career perspectives by broad skills development (including private sector needs) Main features International network of participants -at least three participants established in at least three MS or Associated countries –Third countries organisations may participate if justified by the project Open to researchers from Third countries Training programme with (i) training through research (ii) complementary competences (structured training) modules Involvement of private sector PEOPLE Initial Training of Researchers Marie Curie Initial Training Networks

19 Objectives Career development of experienced researchers by e.g.: diversification skills/competencies; reintegrate after mobility/resume research (”significant step” in career) Operated through: Centralised mode: selection/funding of fellows through call at EC level – Intra-European Fellowships IEF; European Reintegration Grants ERG « Co-funding » mode: –Selection of « co-funded » national, regional and international programmes through open calls with clear evaluation criteria –Researchers apply for individual fellowships to the co-funded programmes PEOPLE Life-long training & career development: Marie Curie fellowships for career development

20 Objective Encourage knowledge sharing, cultural exchange and sustainable cooperation between industry and academia (in particular SMEs) Main features Longer-term co-operation between academic and commercial sectors 2-way staff secondments / hosting of experienced researchers from outside the partnership Special measure to encourage SME participation Open to researchers from outside Europe PEOPLE Marie Curie Industry partnerships and pathways

21 PEOPLE International Dimension Objectives: Reinforce the international dimension of the EU through human resources; Operated through Career Development/life-long training for EU researchers –International Outgoing fellowships (IOF) –International Re-integration grants (IRG) International co-operation through researchers from third countries –International incoming fellowships (IIF) –International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) Host actions (Initial training, Industry - Academia) open to third country nationals
