1 Pan European Research Infrastructures and Horizon 2020

2 Research Infrastructures
Facilities, resources, organisational systems and services that are used by the research communities to conduct research and innovation in their fields

3 The Knowledge Triangle at Work
To be a genuinely competitive in the knowledge economy, one must be better: in producing knowledge through research in diffusing it through education in applying it through innovation Research-Infrastructures innovation research education

4 Why an EU Approach for Research Infrastructures?
To open access to the research infrastructures existing in the individual Member State to all European researchers To avoid duplication of efforts and to coordinate and rationalise the use of these research infrastructures To trigger the exchange of best practice, develop interoperability of facilities and resources, develop the training of the next generation of researchers To connect national research communities and increase the overall quality of the research and innovation To help pooling resources so that the Union can also acquire and operate research infrastructures globally

5 Horizon 2020 is different A strong challenge-based approach, allowing applicants to have considerable freedom to come up with innovative solutions Simplified list of possible types of action (e.g. research and innovation -100%; innovation actions - 70%,…) Less prescription, strong emphasis on expected impact Broader topics Cross-cutting issues mainstreamed (e.g. social sciences, gender, international cooperation …)

6 A strategic programming approach
Work programme preparation based on guidance obtained from a strategic programming exercise To increase impact of the funding, and a more integrated approach Work programmes with a 2 year-duration Leitmotif of the first work programme is the economic crisis and the path to sustainable growth - Horizon 2020 can make a significant contribution to this effort 'key drivers' (competitiveness innovation and growth, leverage of industry, access to finance, new knowledge and skills, enabling technologies…), used to identify areas on which resources and effort will be focused for maximum impact

7 Focus Areas Strategic programming identifies focus areas, each covered by a specific call, that: Bring together activities from different challenges and enabling technologies Provide support across the innovation chain from research, to development, to proof of concept, piloting, demonstration projects, and to setting standards and policy frameworks. Make use of the full spectrum of funding schemes and types of action e.g. research and innovation actions, innovation actions, ERANets, SME instrument… Integrate different perspectives, including from the social sciences and humanities, gender perspectives, and international strategy

8 Time schedule Discussion with Member States and Associated Countries representatives: October – November First meeting of the Expert Advisory Group for RI in Horizon 2020: 23 October 2013 Publication first calls: 11 December 2013 (tentative) Deadlines for submission of RI proposals: September 2014 Early 2015

9 From FP7 to Horizon 2020 More focused support to the implementation and operation of world- class infrastructures such as ESFRI infrastructures Broader access to and deeper integration of European research infrastructures Foster the innovation potential of research infrastructures Widen the participation to pan-European research infrastructures More support to e-infrastructures Reinforce policy support to European strategy on research infrastructures Develop international dimension of the actions

10 Industrial leadership
Horizon 2020– Framework Programme for Research and Innovation ( ) Excellent science European Research Council Future and Emerging Technologies Marie Curie actions European Research infrastructures (including e-infrastructures) – M€ Societal challenges Industrial leadership Health, demographic change, wellbeing Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine - maritime research, bio-economy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green, integrated transport Climate action, resource efficiency, raw materials Inclusive, innovative and secure societies Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (ICT, space, nanotechnologies, advanced materials and advanced manufacturing and processing, biotechnology) Access to risk finance Innovation in SMEs

11 Research Infrastructures in Horizon 2020: structure of the work proramme
1. Developing the European RIs for 2020 and beyond Developing new world-class RIs Integrating and opening national and regional RIs of pan-European interest Development, deployment and operation of ICT based e-Infrastructures 2. Fostering the innovation potential of RIs and their human resources 3. Reinforcing European RI policy and international cooperation

12 A Coherent Toolbox of Activities
EU Structural Funds & National Funding Concept Preparation Implementation Operation ESFRI & Other World Class RI (OWCRI) of pan European interest Integrating Activities Design Study Preparatory Phase Support to Implementation & Operation Individual projects - Clusters Innovation & Human resources Policy support actions – International Cooperation

13 Research Infrastructures – Calls
4 Calls - 22 topics in total Developing new world-class Research Infrastructures Integrating and Opening RI of pan-European Interest e-Infrastructures Innovation, Human resources, Policy and International cooperation for research infrastructures

14 Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources, Policy & International Cooperation
Innovation support measures This topic comprises: the development of an opportunity portal of calls, tenders and future needs and technology transfer opportunities in RI of pan European interest; the networking of procurement professionals to encourage exchange of good practices across RI sectors; Awareness campaign towards industry on the potential of RIs for their activities in selected R&D areas Pilot action in the field of scientific instrumentation exploiting the innovation potential of Research Infrastructures using Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) and/or Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI) schemes.

15 Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources, Policy & International Cooperation
Strengthening the human capital of research infrastructures by supporting .. training of staff managing and operating RI of pan-European interest, exchange of staff and of best practices between facilities, adequate supply of human resources in key disciplines, including the emergence of specific education curricula.

16 Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources, Policy & International Cooperation
Policy measures for research infrastructures comprise: Supporting partnerships between relevant policy makers, funding bodies or advisory groups such as ESFRI & e-IRG, support cooperation and exchange of good practises between managers of research infrastructures and stakeholder networks; support survey, monitoring and assessment of the implementation and operation of research infrastructures. Supporting developing a comprehensive database targeted at policy-makers on research infrastructures of more than national relevance in Europe.

17 Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources, Policy & International Cooperation
International cooperation for research infrastructures aims to: Facilitate the development of global research infrastructures and the cooperation of European RI with their non-European counterparts, ensuring global interoperability and reach, and to pursue international agreements on the reciprocal use, openness or co-financing of infrastructures. Support to GSO activity on global research infrastructures Support multilateral cooperation on research infrastructures in one or several of the following areas: Arctic research, marine science, biodiversity, food research and medicine. Particular emphasis will be made on cooperation with USA, Canada (including for implementing the Transatlantic Research Alliance, launched by the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation) and Russia, without excluding other relevant countries such as Australia and New Zealand.

18 Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources, Policy & International Cooperation
The proposals supporting bilateral and multi-lateral cooperation with research infrastructures in third countries should in particular: Identify and promote opportunities (access and data sharing) available to European scientists in these research infrastructures; Help developing better coordination and cooperation of European research infrastructures with their non-European counterparts; ensuring their global interoperability and reach, and to pursue international agreements on the reciprocal use, openness or co-financing of infrastructures; Exchange good practices between user communities and managers of research infrastructures as regard for instance benchmarking performance of technology platforms, harmonisation of tests, standards, reference materials, interoperability and data handling.
