1 H2020UK Horizon Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials and Production opportunities Craig Sharp National Contact Point Nanotechnologies, advanced materials and advanced manufacturing and processing

2 Horizon 2020 National Contact Points (
National Contact Points (NCPs) are publicly funded (many by the Technology Strategy Board) to provide advice and assistance to UK participants within specific areas of Horizon 2020 (H2020) All member states have NCPs across Horizon 2020 calls UK NCPs are on (Full Member State list - search on “NCP Horizon 2020” – or through the Participant Portal)

3 National Contact Points – what we do..
Feedback to/from Commission on work programmes • Clarification of documentation and rules • Guidance on choosing thematic priorities and instruments Scope queries with Project Officers • Feedback on proposals • Assistance in partner search - through theme specific databases or across the network of other Member State NCPs - through network support (Knowledge Transfer Network, Enterprise Europe Network) Some feedback on results..

4 Horizon 2020 (2014-20) - what’s new?
Successor to FP7 ( ) – EU Collaborative R&D programme ~ €79Bn programme, much of it collaborative More innovation: through introduction of ‘close-to-market actions’ (e.g. prototyping, testing, demonstrating). Greater SME involvement - “SME instrument” A single set of rules for participation and dissemination - for the whole innovation chain Simplified funding rates for research and innovation projects; flat rate for indirect costs Faster time-to-grant : to be reduced to 8 months (5 + 3) Fewer, better targeted controls and audits

5 Why European R&D Funding?
Through the EU, business can gain innovation support on a scale not available within the UK. This can bring UK companies new R&D funding, the chance to collaborate with other world-class companies and institutions, and reach into the world’s largest ‘home’ market

6 H2020 participation Hi-tech SMEs: Mid-tech SMEs:
Spin outs from universities or firms with hi-tech and knowledge based products and in-house R&D capability. Mid-tech SMEs: With some R&D activity or that which could be stimulated and leveraged through Horizon 2020. Academic & Research Organisations: Experienced organisations in partnering and coordinating proposals within balanced consortia Large companies: With existing R&D activity or that which could be stimulated and leveraged through Horizon 2020. 6

7 UK share – previous FP7 NMP calls (2007-13)
NMP budget €3.5Bn for projects across nano, materials & production topics ( ) UK position (NMP) 2nd only to Germany UK (NMP) successful projects (07-13) >€370m requested. UK (NMP) participations in projects (07-13): >950

12 Technology Readiness Levels (Horizon 2020)
1 – Basic Research 2 – Technology concept 3 – Proof of Concept 4 – Technology validation in laboratory 5 – Validation in relevant environment 6 – Demonstration in relevant environment 7 – Demonstration in operational environment 8 – System complete and qualified 9 - Deployment 12

13 Horizon 2020 – still contains the following:
Mix of R&D, Innovation, SME focused and CSA topics Involving partners from Multiple Countries - usually at least 3 * (*SME instrument topics can be single company..) In topics identified by the Commission’s Work ....Programme In response to specific calls for proposals 13

14 H2020 - New Funding model Direct costs: Indirect costs:
Up to 100% of total eligible costs for research actions Up to 70%* of total eligible costs for ‘close-to-market actions’ Non profit organisations get up to 100% direct Indirect costs: A further 25% of total eligible direct costs No full cost option 14

15 H2020 Call Information – the Participant Portal

16 Call area – NMBP (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and advanced manufacturing and Processing) Mix of: Nanotechnologies Advanced Materials Biotechnology Advanced manufacturing & Processing Public Private Partnerships – Factories of the Future, Energy Efficient Buildings, Process Industries (SPIRE) ~ €500m p.a. budget – Feb/March 2015 deadlines (check topics) Mainly Collaborative projects – 3 Member States (SME topics exception)

17 Work programme topic structure
Reflects the challenge-based approach - 3 key features: • Specific Challenge - sets context, problem to be addressed, why intervention is needed • Scope - outlines the problem, specifies the focus and the boundaries of the potential action BUT without overly describing specific approaches - indication of the targeted TRLs and of the average EU funding of the expected proposal in order to suitably address the level of ambition of the topic • Expected Impact - describes the key elements of what is expected to be achieved in relation to the specific challenge

18 Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) – topic range
In FP7-NMP, the concept of TRLs was recognised, but only the wording for TRLs 5-6 was used in some topics for pilots, because the approach had not been standardised. In the LEIT part of H2020, there is a more uniform approach to the use of TRLs in the context of KETs; TRLs are covered in the LEIT Introduction (and may be generalised across H2020). NMP in FP7: TRLs 1 – 4; up to 5-6 in (pilots and demonstrators) H2020 NMP: TRLs 3/4 – 8; centre at TRLs 5-7 Emphasis on project exploitation/impact

24 Finding Partners Normally…. Partner finding Existing Contacts
Look to your own supply chain first and ask if European CRD experience Knowledge Transfer Network, EEN services Project database can indicate projects in your area and help identify key players - Partner search facilities Cordis partner search, PPP associations, etc) Go to brokerage events, European conferences in your target area if you can (13/11 Brussels) Start early… Normally…. Partner finding Existing Contacts Friends of Existing Contacts
