1 Filippo de Rosa Research Directorate-General European Commission Marie Curie Actions Focus on Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP)

2 FP7 overview (2007-2013) Collaborative research 10 THEMATIC AREAS ERC Capacities : M€ 4100 People : M€ 4750 Marie Curie Research Capacity Cooperation : M€ 32 500 JRC : M€ 1750 Euratom : M€ 2750 Nuclear research Ideas : M€ 7510 Total FP7 budget : M€ 50 500 Aim : Contribute to EU becoming the world’s leading research area EU’s main instrument for funding research FP6 (2002-2006) Marie Curie Actions € 1580 million

3 Marie Curie Actions in FP7 A European labour market for researchers What is needed  Human resource development in R&D in Europe  Attract researchers to Europe  Retain Skills and sustainable career development  Facilitate mobility between academia and industry, in Europe and beyond  Appropriate gender balance

4 Marie Curie Actions Individual actions  ERG  IEF  IOF  IIF  IRG Definition: Research Fellowships Others:  Researchers’ Night  Euraxess Institutional actions  IAPP  ITN  IRSES  COFUND

5 Foster co-operation between non-commercial research organisations & commercial enterprises based on joint research projects. Stimulate long-term collaboration between sectors through secondment of researchers between the public & private research domains. Diverse career possibilities & research experience for researchers, knowledge sharing/cultural exchange. Industry-Academia Partnership and Pathways (IAPP) Objectives

6 Research project open to all domains (bottom-up approach) Trans-national and inter-sector mobility Application through calls for proposals Selection criteria: S&T quality ( threshold 3/ weight 25) Transfer of Knowledge ( threshold 3/ weight 20) Implementation ( threshold 3/ weight 25) Impact ( weight 30) Budget covers mainly salaries of researchers IAPP main characteristics

7 At least 1 non-commercial organisation At least 1 commercial enterprise Non-Commercial Universities/research centres Non-profit or charitable organisations International European interest organisations Joint Research Centre of European Commission International organisations (WHO, UNESCO) Commercial Commercial enterprises of ALL sizes (incl. SMEs, spin offs, start ups) National organisations if commercial IAPP Participants

8 At least 2 different EU or Associated States + free choice. EU Member States (MS) & Associated Countries (AC): EU27 + Switzerland, Israel, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Croatia, FYROM, Serbia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia. “Third Countries” 2 categories International Cooperation Partner Countries (ICPC): based on three categories according to income per capita (low-income, lower-middle-income, or upper-middle-income) Other Third Countries (OTC): US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand. IAPP Participants

9 Compulsory Secondment of staff Majority of support in IAPP Always inter-sector Normally 2-way with in-built return Up to 30% for secondments within 1 country Optional Recruitment of experienced researchers Not substitute for secondment Other Networking activities Workshops & Conferences: participants' own research staff & external researchers IAPP Main activities

11 Secondment Early-stage/Experienced researchers (2-24 months, also split) Must be staff members for at least 12 months Reintegration into the home institution for at least 1 year Recruitment Experienced researchers from any country (12-24 months) Experienced researchers 2 pay scales 4-10 years experience (ER) >10 years of research (MER) IAPP Eligible Researchers Early-stage researchers (ESR) Experience ≤ 4 years No PhD

12 Secondment No nationality restrictions Recruitment Researchers not residing / having main activity in country of the host > 12 months in last 3 years before recruitment IAPP Nationality Rules

13 Community contributions Living allowance * € 35 300/17 650 per year (ESR: post-graduates) € 54 300/27 150 per year (ER: 4-10 years) € 81 400/40 700 per year (MER: > 10 years) Mobility allowance * € 500 or 800 per month Travel allowance € 250 to 2500 per year Career exploratory allowance € 2000 per recruitment > 1 year Research/training/networking costs € 1200 per researcher-month Small equipment expenses for SMEs max. 10 % of SME contribution Overheads 10% of direct costs Management costs max. 3% of total contribution Gross amounts (rates for 2009) *Correction Coefficients apply Fellow expenses Host expenses

14 S&T Quality Weighting: 25 % Threshold: 3/5 - Research S&T objectives - Scientific quality of joint project - Appropriateness of methodology - Originality, innovativation, state-of-the-art ToK Weighting: 20 % Threshold: 3/5 Quality of ToK programme Importance of ToK in terms of intersectorial issues Role of seconded/recruited researchers in ToK Implementation Weighting: 25 % Threshold: 3/5 Capacities, expertise/HR/facilities/infrastructure of partners Exploitation of complementarities and synergies among partners Management plans (recruitment, IPR, demarcation of responsibilities) Justify participation of non-ICPC 3rd Countries (USA, Japan, etc) Impact Weighting: 30 % No Threshold Potential to develop new intersectorial & lasting collaborations Dissemination of results, networking and share of knowledge Extent to which SMEs contribute + justification Evaluation criteria

17 What would Industry want?  Alternative paths to innovation - risk research without the risk  Actively directing the research towards the need of the company  Identifying research opportunities and developing them within the academic environment  Acquiring know how  Skilled research staff  SMEs in particular – research equipment

18 Why would Academia collaborate with industry? Alternative career opportunities Value new generation of researchers appropriately Easier commercialisation New commercial opportunities realised Increased funding potential through new networks Funded researchers

19 What would both sectors want? EC money 100% costs covered Zero hassle – few reporting requirements Peer recognition Trans-national networking opportunities

20 What does IAPP offer? 100% funding (65% of which pre-financing) Simple application procedure: short and precise Few reporting requirements – 2 main reports in 4 years Support – in particular NCPs Top class public and private sector evaluators Marie Curie label Networking and conference costs SMEs – equipment contribution
