2 What is Horizon 2020?Commission proposal for an 80 billion euro R&I funding programme ( )Part of proposals for next EU budget, complementing Structural Funds, education, etc.A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area:Responding to the economic crisis to invest in future jobs and growthAddressing peoples’ concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environmentStrengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technologyThe Commission unveiled a set of proposals on 30 November for Horizon 2020, the new framework programme for research and innovation. This forms part of the set of proposals for all of the Union's spending programmes for the periodHorizon 2020 is designed to address these challenges through funding excellent science, technology and innovation. It is central to the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, the Innovation Union flagship to create a knowledge society, and the goal to complete the European Research Area as a single market for knowledge.The world has changed dramatically over recent years and Europe is faced with a crisis of public debt, low growth and high unemployment. Smart investments in research and innovation are vital to create jobs and put Europe back on a path to growth.At the same time Europe face major challenges such as ageing populations and the depletion of natural resources. This affects all of our lives directly, for example through high health care costs, rising energy prices, congested roads, and threats to security.
3 Competitive Business SMEs The Multiannual Financial Framework : Commission’s proposals of 29 June 2011Smart & inclusive growth (€491bn)2. Sustainable growth, natural resources (€383bn)3. Security and citizenship (€18.5bn)4. Global Europe (€70bn)5. Administration (€62.6bn)Horizon 2020Education, Youth, SportConnecting EuropeCohesionCompetitive Business SMEsTotal:€ 1,025bnToday we are talking about Horizon 2020, but we should first recall that it is part of a much wider package making up the Commission’s proposals for the next Multiannual financial framework,Plans for the overall shape of the next MFF were adopted by the Commission at the end of June this year.The next programming period sees a forward-looking budget, focusing on Europe 2020.It is organised around five headings. Under the first – Smart & Inclusive Growth – Horizon 2020 will sit alongside a number of other important programmes and policies. Just some of them are highlighted in this slide.Throughout this presentation budgets are presented in so-called ‘constant 2011 prices’; that is to say, what it means in today’s prices. However, the figures in the Horizon 2020 proposal are higher because they allow for inflation.[If asked about evolution of budgets: It is not a simple matter to compare the budget allocated to current and future programmes. But we can see that with regards to research and innovation, Horizon 2020 marks a 46% increase compared to current period ( ). Overall the share of research and innovation in EU Budget increases to 8.5% in 2020.Note: Education, Youth, Sport = 15.2bn; Connecting Europe = 40bn; Cohesion Policy = bn; CBSP = 2.38bn]
4 What’s new?A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives*More innovation, from research to retail, all forms of innovationFocus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transportSimplified access, for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond.Horizon 2020 represents a break from the past, in order to meet the new challenges and opportunities.It brings together all EU level research and innovation funding into a single programme, covering the current 7th research Framework Programme, the innovation activities from the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, as well as EU funding to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.These currently separate activities have been integrated to allow seamless funding of research and innovation, allowing innovative projects to be supported from the laboratory to commercial exploitation. Previously separate activities have been brought together to focus on the societal challenges such as health, clean energy and transport.All forms of innovation will be included, including innovation in services and social innovation. Support will also be given to develop the market and legal frameworks for innovations to be deployed, such as on public procurement, standard setting and regulations.Horizon 2020 will also provide a major simplification, with a single set of rules, less paperwork, and faster funding. The aim is to attract the best researchers and innovators regardless of where they are located.*The 7th research Framework Programme (FP7), innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)

In a short number of years, the ERC has already supported Nobel prize-winning scientists and ERC grants are widely regarded as a stamp of excellence.Excellent science provides the basis of new technologies. The "Future and Emerging Technologies" scheme will be expanded to support unconventional and pioneering science with the potential to be tomorrow's technologies.Excellent science depends on developing, attracting and retaining talent. Through the "Marie Curie" actions, the EU has developed attractive opportunities for researchers to move across countries and improve their careers at all stages.Finally, top class research requires access to major infrastructures which are often expensive and only located in a few places in Europe

9 Priority 2 Industrial leadership Why:Europe needs more innovative SMEs to create growth and jobsStrategic investments in key technologies (e.g. advanced manufacturing, micro-electronics) underpin innovation across existing and emerging sectorsEurope needs to attract more private investment in research and innovationInnovative companies are at the heart of job creation and growth. However, Europe lacks such companies, particularly among small and medium-sized enterprises.
10 Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-20) Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (ICT, nanotechnologies, materials, biotechnology, manufacturing, space)13 781Access to risk financeLeveraging private finance and venture capital for research and innovation3 538Innovation in SMEsFostering all forms of innovation in all types of SMEs619Key enabling technologies - such as advanced manufacturing, microelectronics, nanotechnology and biotechnology - underpin innovation across many industries and sectors. For Europe to build and maintain a lead in these technologies requires strategic investments.A major barrier to growth is the lack of access to finance for innovative companies. Working with the European Investment Bank, support to venture capital and loans will be scaled up.The participation of SMEs will be important in all areas of Horizon 2020 and specific measures will be place for this. In addition, there will be a dedicated activity for research intensive SMEs in all areas, as well as services to support all SMEs to innovate.

13 Priority 3 Societal challenges Why:EU policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc) cannot be achieved without innovationBreakthrough solutions come from multi-disciplinary collaborations, including social sciences & humanitiesPromising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled upMeeting the objectives of Europe 2020 and other EU policies relies on research and innovation. For example, meeting the target to reduce CO2 emissions depends on new technologies and solutions for energy, transport, agriculture and the management of resources.This requires a broad, multi-disciplinary approach that brings together researchers, industry, public bodies and users to create innovative solutions that will meet peoples' needs.Horizon 2020 will support not only research into new technologies and solutions, but also their piloting, demonstration and market uptake. In this way the full impact of EU funding will be achieved.Horizon 2020 will build on the thematic research from FP7 and other programmes to address the following challenges which have been identified on the basis of Europe 2020 priorities:- Health, demographic change and wellbeing- Food security, sustainable agriculture and the bioeconomy- Secure, clean and efficient energy- Smart, green and integrated transport, and- Inclusive, innovative and secure societies.

17 Role of the EIT and JRC in Horizon 2020 Three priorities to be supported by:European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Combining research, innovation & training in Knowledge and Innovation Communities1 440*Joint Research Centre (JRC)**Providing a robust, evidence base for EU policies1 961The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and the Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) will play specific roles in support of the Horizon 2020 objectives.The EIT's role will be to bring together the "knowledge triangle" of research, innovation and education. It will do so through Knowledge and Innovation Communities addressing particular challenges, such as climate, energy and new ICTs.The Joint Research Centre will provide a robust, evidence-base for EU policies in areas such as food safety, environmental monitoring and nuclear safety.Note€1 360 is the direct contribution of H2020 to the EIT€1 440 is an expected contribution coming from Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies (LEIT) and the Societal challenges. This amount may vary as it’s subject to reveiw. Therefore, this should not be added to the total amount of H2020 as it’s already included in the budgets of LEIT and Societal challanges* Second tranche pro rata from LEIT and Societal challenges (subject to review)**Additional €724 m for the JRC to be funded from the Euratom Treaty activities
