1 Research Infrastructures EU strategy and opportunities for cooperation
Odessa, November 1, 2011 Anna Maria Johansson European Commission, DG Research and Innovation Unit B3 - Research Infrastructures

2 Facilities, resources, and related services used by the scientific community
Major scientific equipment Scientific collections, archives and structured information ICT-based infrastructures Extending the frontiers of knowledge Exchanging and transmitting knowledge Training the next generation of top researchers Supporting industrial innovation

3 Importance of a European approach for Research Infrastructures
To open access to instruments and services not available in one country, and improve services To connect national research communities and increase the overall quality of the research To share construction and operation costs To develop interoperability of facilities and resources To exchange best practice To become an international partner 3

4 FP7 actions for Research Infrastructures
Optimising the use and development of the best existing research infrastructures in Europe E-Infrastructures Integrating Activities Helping to create in all fields of S&T new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the European scientific community Design studies Preparatory Phase of ESFRI projects Implementation Phase of ESFRI projects 4

5 Integrating Activities
Objective To bring together and integrate, on a European scale, key research infrastructures in a given class, in order to promote their coordinated use and development Mandatory activities Networking Activities Trans-national Access and/or Service Activities Joint Research Activities 5

6 Design Studies Objectives: to contribute to conceptual design studies for new research infrastructures , that demonstrates a clear European dimension and interest. Major upgrades of existing infrastructures may also be considered, when the end result is the develpmemnt of a new type or form of research infrastructure with a clear value at European level Open for all fields of S&T

7 Preparatory phase Objectives: to provide catalytic and leveraging support for the preparatory phase leading to the construction of new RIs Building primarily upon the work conducted by ESFRI Bringing the project to the level of legal and financial maturity Involving all the necessary stakeholders to make the project move forward, take decision, etc. Activities: legal work, governance, strategic work, financial work and, if necessary, technical work

8 Implementation phase Objectives: to support the actual implementation of new research infrastructures (or major upgrades of existing ones). The implementation phase should include all appropriate coordination activities as well as the relevant technical work.

9 Support to policy development and programme implementation
Objectives: to enhance the effectiveness and coherence of national and Community research policies, international cooperation and the analysis of emerging needs in the field of RIs

11 ESFRI – European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures
Set up by the EU Council of Research Ministers in 2002 Brings together representatives of Ministers of the 27 Member States, 10 Associated States, and of the European Commission Supports a coherent and strategy-led approach to policy making on Research Infrastructures Mandate to develop a Roadmap (2006) and its updates (2008, 2010) contains 48 projects requiring major financial investment (~20 b€) and long term commitment for operation (~2 b€/year) 11

12 Implementation «A combination of resources from national budgets, Community programmes, EIB instruments and structural funds should lead to the development of excellent research infrastructures throughout Europe» Competitiveness (Internal Market, Industry and Research) Council of March 5-6, 2009 12

13 for Research Infrastructures
Roadmap in place Roadmap under preparation National funding reserved for new/updated RIs National Roadmaps for Research Infrastructures

14 ERIC: European Research Infrastructure Consortium
A new legal framework, at EU level, to facilitate the joint establishment and operation of Research Infrastructures of European interest among several countries A legal personality recognised in all EU Member States Non-EU countries can be members Current status: First ERIC status awarded to SHARE on 17 March 2011 Other applications under progress CLARIN, ECRIN, EuroArgo 14

15 EU perspectives « Europe 2020 », the European strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth (COM(2010) 2020) Seven flagship initiatives « Innovation Union » flagship initiative: Endorsed by Heads of State in early 2011 Comprehensive set of actions to stimulate research and innovation Seamless support from basic science to the support of market implementation of innovative developments 15

16 Research Infrastructures
Commitments within Innovation Union « … opening of Member State operated research infrastructures to the full European user community… » « By 2015 (…) have completed or launched the construction of 60% of the priority European research infrastructures currently identified by the ESFRI (…). The Member States are invited to review their Operational Programmes to facilitate the use of cohesion policy money for this purpose.» « The European Union should step up its cooperation on the roll-out of the global research infrastructures… » 16

17 Horizon 2020 The European programme for Research and Innovation for the period 2014–2020 Building on the activities of the current FP7, the Competitiveness and Innovation programme (CIP) and the European Institute for Technology (EIT), with three pillars: Excellent science base Industrial leadership and competitive frameworks Tackling societal challenges Commission proposal for a budget of € 80 Billion 17

18 Horizon 2020 Timeline Specific consultation workshops
June - July 2011 EC Multi-Annual financial Framework Adopted 29 June 2011 Commission proposal (Horizon 2020) end of 2011 (currently in ISC) Legislative decisions on the Common Strategic Framework by Council and European Parliament during Common Strategic Framework from 2014 18 18

19 Research Infrastructures
Potential objectives within Horizon 2020 Main part 1. Optimise the use and development of European RIs Support the development, implementation and operation of ESFRI projects and other major infrastructures of European wide relevance Facilitate the integration of and access to national research infrastructures Support the development, deployment and operation of ICT-based e-Infrastructures 2. Foster the human and innovation potential of RIs Strengthen the technological innovation potential of RIs Strengthen the human potential of RIs 3. Reinforce the consistency of the European Research Infrastructure policy Increased emphasis Essential EC actions

20 ERA framework Heads of State and Government set out in Feb the ambitious goal of completing the ERA by 2014 with the creation of a single market for knowledge, research and innovation. Public consultation on the Framework launched on Sept.13 (until 30 November 2011) Link to the consultation:
