2 Intro  Why Apply for EU Funding?  Intro to Horizon 2020  Societal Challenges  ERC  Marie Sklodowska-Curie  LEIT  Other H2020 Schemes  Events  The European Team at York 2

3 Why Apply for EU Funding?  Prestigious and world renowned – boosts reputation/visiblility  Large budget available/up to 5 years of funding  World-wide collaborations, create strong research networks  Strongly encourage working with industry and SME’s  Huge variety in the possibility of research (i.e. bottom up/top down)  Improved bureaucracy – main aim is successful research  Dedicated EU Grants and Contracts Team at York  York Compliant to EU  It should be fun and exciting! Vibrant, diverse consortiums developing the future of research with one of the most prestigious funders supporting you. 3

4 Horizon 2020 Intro   Biggest EU Research and Innovation programme yet, with 79 billion euros of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020)   Main Aims of H2020- o o Strengthen the EU’s position in sciencescience o o Improve European economy. o o Address major societal concerns shared by all Europeans such as sustainable food security, health and well-being, the challenge of an ageing population, developing sustainable transport and mobility, affordable renewable energy and climate change.societal

5 Work Programme Part 1 (2014/15)  Personalising health and care  Sustainable food security  Blue growth: unlocking the potential of seas and oceans  Waste: a resource to recycle, reuse and recover raw materials 5   Overcoming the crisis: new ideas, strategies and governance structures for Europe   Disaster-resilience: safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change   Digital security   Mobility for growth   Competitive low-carbon energy   Water innovation: boosting its value for Europe   Smart cities and communities   Energy Efficiency 12 focus areas

6 Horizon 2020: Structure

7 Horizon 2020 - Societal Challenges  Multi-partner international teams  Size/funding highly variable  Duration 2-5+ years  Research and Innovation Actions  Co-ordination and Support Actions eg standardization, dissemination, awareness-raising and communication 7   Challenge-based approach, allowing applicants to have considerable freedom to come up with innovative solutions   Interdisciplinary: ‘brings together resources and knowledge across different fields, technologies and disciplines’   ‘emphasis on innovation-related activities’

12 3 Criteria, each scored out of 5:  Excellence clarity of objectives, credibility of approach, soundness of concept  Impact expected impacts, dissemination + IPR, communication  Quality and efficiency of the implementation work plan,participants + consortium, management, sound financial plan Usual threshold = 3/5 for each criterion, 10/15 overall For 1 st stage of 2-stage submissions: Excellence + Impact, threshold 4/5 Independent assessment by external evaluators Then reviewed by Panel = chaired by EC + involving external experts → proposals listed in priority order Evaluation of Pillar 3 12

13 Tips for Success in Societal Challenges 1. Scientific Excellence, especially something innovative and different 2. Societal and economic benefit and growth is a big theme – Engaging industry and SMEs 3. Strong partnership with Member States and international cooperation 5.
