3 33 Need to boost science and technology-based economic development, by better integrating research to their regional innovation strategies Alignment with Europe 2020 strategy and its flagship initiatives notably Innovation Union, Digital Agenda and Resource Efficient Europe Promote the emergence of world class clusters in Europe Create synergies between research, innovation and regional development policies - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Policy context

5 55 Research Entity Business Entity (e.g. SME) REGIONAL RESEARCH– DRIVEN CLUSTER Regional Authority Other Actors (e.g. TTOs, Consultants) WHAT IS A REGIONAL RESEARCH-DRIVEN CLUSTER?

6 66 REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE WP Overview (1) Objective: Strengthen the research potential of European regions by supporting the development of research-driven clusters associating universities, research centres, enterprises and regional authorities and supporting their cooperation 1 Work Programme for , 1 call for proposals with a single deadline & a combined-2-year budget of 46 M (subject to approval by budgeting authority) Consortia of at least 3 regional research driven clusters from 3 different countries Continuity: Compulsory clustering of research, business and regional government (triple helix), Regional Research Agendas and Joint Action Plans are key elements

7 77 REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE WP : Overview New: High emphasis on smart specialisation and internationalisation Simplification of participation (free choice of co-ordinator) Catalogue of activities adapted to new requirements for innovation More emphasis on synergies with structural funds Two S & T domains addressed in line with Europe 2020 flagship initiatives, notably digital agenda and resource efficiency Combining the planned budgets for 2012 and 2013 (only 2012 published yet) - Not legally binding -

8 88 One call, REGIONS , targeting the transnational cooperation of regional research driven clusters - for a total of 17,99 M (additional funding will be available from 2013 budget, still to be approved) Participants: Consortia of at least 3 regional research-driven clusters from 3 different Member States or Associated countries Possible representation by one member - under conditions Compulsory description of the full clusters and their triple helix structure Coordinator : Any partner with sufficient financial viability and managerial capacity - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Call for proposals

9 99 transnational co-operation of high potential research-driven clusters in the domains of digital agenda and / or resource efficient technologies Europe- wide and globally Build sustainable partnerships between academia and business within clusters and trans-nationally across clusters and regions Contribution to the development of smart specialisation strategies of regions through R&D and Innovation We favour innovative and cross-disciplinary approaches Applications may address both domains in one proposal if justified from an S & T point of view. - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE WP : Overall Thematic Scope

10 10 RTD and innovation aspects of EU digital agenda : Co-ordination and Support Actions (CSA) that will support the transnational co-operation of high potential research-driven clusters that address the research and innovation aspects of the EU digital agenda. Areas of particular interest: reinforcement of e-Infrastructures, cloud computing, applications for government and science, new generation of web based applications and services, including multilingual content, Internet of Things and key enabling technologies in ICT Clusters are especially encouraged to contribute to setting up a regional digital agenda for the sake of competitiveness but also to foster digital literacy, skills and inclusion in order to overcome regional disparities, also including social innovation - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE WP : S&T domains (1)

11 11 Development of technologies and services relevant for the implementation of a 'resource efficient Europe Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) will support the transnational cooperation of research-driven clusters that are active in the development of technologies and services relevant for the realisation of the resource-efficient Europe which are in line with the Communication on 'A resource-efficient Europe – Flagship initiative under the Europe 2020 Strategy support shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy to achieve sustainable growth addressed technologies should increase the efficiency of using materials, water and energy Examples: renewable energies, smart grids, recycling, waste management, clean technologies, water treatment and eco-design. -Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE WP : S & T domains (2)

12 12 Analysis, development and implementation of research agendas Mentoring of regions with a less developed research profile for capacity building (optional) Initiatives to improve integration: definition of joint action plans (JAP), together with business plans – following SWOT analysis and definition of RTD needs Measures towards the implementation of the JAP International cooperation strategy (mandatory) Dissemination activities Beware: Neither the implementation of the JAP nor any research can be funded under Regions - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Funded activities

13 13 REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Project phases Phase 1: Analysis and Integration of research agendas of regional research driven clusters Phase 2 : Design of Joint Action Plans (JAP) tailor made for each participating region but having a common European view Phase 3 : Implementation of JAP (costs not eligible) and accompanying measures (costs eligible) - Not legally binding -

14 14 Boosting the competiveness of research-driven clusters in the domains of digital agenda and resource efficient technologies Europe-wide and globally, unlocking new business opportunities for participating SMEs Build sustainable partnerships between academia and business within clusters and transnationally across clusters and regions, facilitating the knowledge transfer from academia to business in order to develop novel services, products and processes. Contribution to the development of smart specialisation strategies of regions - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Expected impact (1)

15 15 New private and public investments in R&D and Innovation at regional level driven by regional strategies based on business needs and an integrated Joint Action Plan, access to finance facilitated for SMEs, synergies created with other EU and national funding sources Create an innovation friendly ecosystem in the regions through close and sustainable collaboration and networking between universities, research centres, business, local policy makers and other stakeholders Including more regions into the knowledge economy and the ERA, especially through the mentoring of regions with a less developed research profile - Not legally binding - REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Expected impact (2)

16 16 REGIONS OF KNOWLEDGE : Funding scheme overview Funding scheme: CSA –CA (coordinating action) Duration: up to 36 months – the JAP being finalized during the first half of the project Community contribution: up to 3 M Financing rate: up to 100 % of eligible direct costs, max. 7% of indirect cost - Not legally binding -
