2 Agenda MRCs role within FP7 Funding opportunities within FP Health Work Programme Key points Topics by activity area

3 MRC and FP7 MRC has four roles in FP7: 1.Participant 2.NCP for the Health Theme – Victoria Brewer 3.Programme Management Committee (Health) – Mark Palmer 4.State Representative for Innovative Medicines Initiative – Jill Jones MRC leads the PMC delegation at the invitation of the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) Alternative delegates are: Department of Health (DH) Technology Strategy Board Expert group e.g. UKRO Joint lead between MRC and BIS

4 What is FP7 Main mechanism used by the European Commission to fund research across Europe. Two main aims: 1.To strengthen the scientific and technological base of European industry. 2.To encourage international competitiveness while promoting research that supports EU policies. How does the EC aim to achieve this? Pooling resources Integration of research Excellence in research Addressing Specific Needs Assembling critical mass Enabling big science Leverage private investment Addressing Pan-European challenges Coordinating national and regional programmes Conducting comparative research at EU level Disseminating research result more widely Supporting research careers and mobility of research Creating world class centres of excellence EU level competition to increase quality and creativity Orphan research

5 FP7 Budget Seven year funding programme with a budget of around 50.5 Billion To date the UK has received 14% of the overall funding awarded

6 Ideas – European Research Council 7.5bn budget Managed through the European Research Council (ERC) Bottom up/investigator led research Research within your own team – no international collaboration ERC Early grants Funding: ~ 1.5 M for up to 5 year 2-12 years post PhD at application UK has received 180* grants to date ERC-2010-StG call -79/427 went to UK HEI (19%) ERC Advanced Grants Funding: ~ 2.5 M for up to 5 year exceptional research leader UK has received 172* grants to date ERC-2010-AdG call - 53/266 went to UK HEI (20%)

7 People – Marie Curie Actions 4.75bn budget Managed through Marie Curie Actions Research mobility and career development scheme –inc coordination of PhD programmes Allows for European and International exchange Schemes for individuals or organisations To date 1.3 billion awarded UK share million = 23% Individual Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships for Career Development (IEF) -move from one EU or FP7 associated country to another for a duration of 1-2 years. Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships (IIF) – bring researchers based outside Europe into an EU Member State or country associated to FP7 for a duration of 1-2 years. Organisation Initial Training Networks (ITNs) – aimed at initial training of researchers, first five years of researchers' careers.
