Five themes with specific actions ERC proof of concept grants Demonstration projects (at least 265 M) 13 dedicated demonstration topics in five themes in Cooperation Prizes follow-up EU prize for Women Innovators support for organising competitions for innovative learning technologies European prize for innovation in Public Administrations Inducement prize from WP2012 call reminder (2 M)

10 Widening participation: Pilot action on ERA chairs ERA Chairs (12 M) 5 ERA Chairs to build excellence in less developed regions Pilot to be launched in the Autumn to prepare for Horizon 2020 ERA chairs = outstanding academics attracted by universities or institutions to build excellent teams ERA chairs host= institutions demonstrating the ability to support excellence (must provide excellent facilities and comply with ERA principles e.g. open recruitment)

11 Paving the way for Horizon 2020 Promoting excellence, wherever it is found Focusing on strategic priorities Boosting innovation Helping firms move from idea to market Special attention for SMEs
