What is Horizon 2020? http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020 The EU’s 2014-20 programme for research & innovation A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area
Funding (million EUR, 2014-2020) Health, demographic change and wellbeing7 472 Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the Bioeconomy 3 851 Secure, clean and efficient energy *5 931 Smart, green and integrated transport6 339 Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials 3 081 Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies1 310 Secure societies1 695 Science with and for society462 Spreading excellence and widening participation816
Translating science to benefit citizens Improve health outcomes Support a competitive health & care sector Test and demonstrate new health & care models, approaches and tools Promote healthy and active ageing Horizon 2020 - Societal Challenge 1 Also look elsewhere! EU support of health related research & innovation is not limited to Societal Challenge 1
Less prescriptive topic texts Two-year work programme Stronger focus on end users Broad topics Challenge-driven New Approach
More Opportunities for SMEs 20% of the total budget for societal challenges/LEITs to go to SMEs Simplification – a great benefit to SMEs A new SME instrument 'Innovation in SMEs' - a dedicated activity for research-intensive SMEs 'Access to risk finance' with strong SME focus (debt and equity facility) Image courtesy of Vlado/ FreeDigitalPhotos.net
Wanted: international cooperation A priority Key goal: more and better international cooperation Horizon 2020 is open to participation from across the world Targeted actions across the entire programme Horizon 2020 Regulation and Rules for Participation apply Participants from USA can be funded in SC1 (but not other SCs)
Getting you started faster A single set of simpler and more coherent participation rules New trust/control balance Just 2 funding rates for different beneficiaries and activities (70 and 100%) Single flat rate for overhead or 'indirect costs' (25%) Simpler financial regulation to come 8 months' time-to-grant (exceptions for the ERC and in duly justified cases) Image courtesy of ponsuwan/ FreeDigitalPhotos.net
