3 3 A Practical Guide: Why & How? A Practical Guide: Why? Several EU funding sources / Different priorities, timings, rules Missed opportunities for synergies Need to inform researchers, entrepreneurs and their advisors A Practical guide: How? Framework for developing RTD-I projects ideas Description of EU instruments / funding options (FP7, CIP, SF) Checklist & Scorecard for identifying funding options Rules & examples for combining the different instruments Role of national and regional authorities Useful sources of advice & information

4 4 lChecklist for EU RTD-I funding: 6 questions èStep 1: Am I eligible for a given programme or funding source? èStep 2: Is my type of research, innovation or… activity eligible? èStep 3: What about my time frame? èStep 4: What type of financial support can I obtain? èStep 5: Who else is involved in the project? èStep 6: Can I apply for funding in my location? lScorecard: answers to the 6 questions (+/?/-) èThe scores indicate how the project could fit under FP7, CIP, SF èThis does not mean automatic eligibility for application / funding Checklist & Scorecard for funding

5 5 lDouble-financing for the same expenditure: NO! lCo-financing with national/ regional/ private sources = norm lMixed financing from EU programmes for the same project èPossible but unusual for CIP & FP èNot possible for SF, possible for EIB/EIF for nat/reg contribution lComplementary / consecutive financing: YES! èYes, at the same time for separate but complementary activities èYes, for consecutive but related projects can be funded lMulti-funding in the same network or cluster èWhen some activities are funded by FP7 & others by CIP or SF Mixing EU funding sources

6 6 lExploiting the potential for synergies lFostering co-ordinated access to the EU funds lEnsuring communication & information lUpdating a database of projects lPreventing financial irregularities Publicise & use the practical guide! Role of national/regional authorities

7 7 Example of combination of EU Funding: Potsdam-Golm Science Park (Germany) (Finalist RegioStars Award 2009) lERDF: 74 million ( ) for research infrastructure: è University of Potsdam è research institutes lRTD-Framework Programme (FP5) support for several joint research projects ( ) from University and research institutes

8 8 Multitel = R&D Centre active in voice and image processing lERDF / ESF: support to creation of new activities / R&D ideas èIn 1995, 2 labs (University of Mons) receive support for R&D èIn 1999, Multitel becomes a non-profit organisation èIn 2009, staff of about 80 persons; several spin-offs created lRTD-Framework Programme (FP5-6-7): support to R&D projects lCurrently: ERDF and FP support to Multitel and its spin-offs Example of combination of EU Funding: Multitel (Non-Profit Organisation, Mons, Belgium)
