8 How it works … Proposal When starting a proposal, we need to know: deadline When is the deadline ? Is it enough time to prepare the proposal ? ideatopics What idea ? do I know which are the topics addressed by the call ? instrument What type of instrument is more suitable for my idea ? do I know which are the instruments and the differences between them ? contact Who should I contact ? do I know researchers acting in the field of the topic ? Do I want to be a co-ordinator or just a partner ? help Who can help me in setting up the proposal ? me my organisation (colleagues, financial dept., legal dept.) consultancy firm Romanian NCPs National representative at EC

16 Coordination Actions (CA) Networks of Excellence (NE) Integrated Projects (IP) Specific Targeted Research Projects (STREP) Traditional projects Stairways of excellence Specific Support Actions (SSA) New Instruments Instruments

17 Networks of excellence Strengthen excellence in a research domain Aim at integration Joint programme of activities Seeking continuity Autocatalytic knowledge mass for excellence EC funds: depending on integrated resources Society problems & competitiveness Aim at exploitation Implementation plan (pre-defined results) Limited in time Critical mass for problem solving EC funds: depending on estimated costs Integrated projects versus New instruments New instruments

18 Integrated Projects (IP) Aim: flagship, ambitious, leading to radical innovation and transformation of industry in the long term Strong industrial participation and even leadership From fixed objectives to new applicable knowledge Positive image of industrial research Include inter-related activities New Instruments

19 Networks of Excellence (NE) Aim: Lasting integration of long-term research to overcome fragmentation Contribution to advancing knowledge for sustainability, competitiveness and dynamism of EU industry; Scientific excellence is imperative Include Joint Programme of Activities to induce organisational change; research included, only if contributing to durable integration New Instruments

20 Stimulating cooperation to improve research competencies EC funds only for coordination activities Similar structure as traditional projects Research at frontier of knowledge EC funds for RTD activities Traditional instruments Traditional instruments Specific targeted research projects (STREP) Coordination actions (CA) Foresight activities Interaction with regulators and public authorities Specific support actions (SSA)

21 Specific Targeted REsearch Projects (STREP) at frontiers of knowledge: support long-term innovation and transformation of industry Coordination Actions (CA) - strengthen links between national, regional and EC RTD projects, co-ordination with EUREKA, COST and ESF actions: CA NE!!! Specific Support Actions (SSA) - preparing future research activities and scenarios, effective communication, road-maps Traditional Instruments

22 High subscription Good S&T quality and coverage of topics Need for more industrial participation, however very good SME participation Need for selective use of instruments and increased concentration of topics Two stage procedure to be simplified Need for better training of coordinators as well as experts; importance of NCPs NMP calls in 2003 Lessons learnt

23 Simpler, shorter Stage 1: Incomplete outline IPNERelevance to callPotential Impact S/T excellence Threshold :12/158/10 20 pages strict maximum Go/No-go after Stage 1; Full proposal in Stage 2 NMP calls in 2004 Whats new? - (i) Revision of 2-stage submission and evaluation procedure

24 More emphasis on industrial participation Selective use of instruments (usually only one single instrument per topic) More topics addressed by IPs than by NE Higher integration of topics (see Area 4) Emphasis on integration and multidisciplinarity WP 2004 and next calls Whats new? - (ii)
