3 FP Finances – Key Principles Co-financing principle: Usually based on reimbursement of a proportion of direct and indirect costs Lump sums or flat rates in certain actions Different project types/funding schemes Collaborative projects Research – 75% Demonstration – 50% Management/Other – 100% Special Transitional Flat rate for indirect costs 60% EC principles of eligible costs and non-eligible costs No profit 3 FP7 Financial Issues

Major trends in society and their implications 1. Growth, employment and competitiveness in a knowledge society 2. Combining economic, social and environmental objectives in a European perspective 8. Horizontal actions FP7 – Co-operation - SSH

7 What is the ERC? What is the European Research Council (ERC)? New pan-European funding organisation Supports the best in Europe - scientists, engineers and scholars Funding of €7.51 billion (2007-13) What are the aims of the ERC? Encourage highest quality research in Europe Competitive, flexible funding Retain, repatriate and recruit (career support) What are the ERC Grant Schemes? Starting Grants and Advanced Grants Support for a PI and (if necessary) team-members Investigator-initiated frontier research across all fields of research, on the basis of scientific excellence The ERC also has calls for tender for studies on the ERC itself ERC - Introduction 7

8 Key Points for ERC Grants Support for a PI and (if necessary) team-members No need for collaboration or to work with other countries Team all usually based at the same institution (in EU/AC), but possible to have team members in other organisations if strongly justified (anywhere in World - not just EU, AC and ICPC) Also for Advanced Grants can have a Co-I (must be from a different discipline to the PI) No nationality or mobility requirements Investigator driven (bottom-up) substantial advances “Frontier Research” Excellence is only peer review criterion 50% for the PI (must have an outstanding CV, (potential) leadership profile & track record 50% for the Research Project ERC

9 ERC Starting Grants Starting Independent Researcher Grants aims to provide critical and adequate support to the independent careers of excellent researchers who are at the stage of starting or consolidating their own independent research team or, depending on field, their independent research programme researchers applying for an ERC Starting Grant must be able to demonstrate their potential to become independent research leaders Now ~47% of Annual ERC Call Budget Annual calls: open late spring and close in autumn Grants of up to €2 million over 5 yrs (normally €1.5 million) 9 ERC - Introduction

10 ERC Advanced Grants Advanced Investigator Grants aims to encourage and support excellent, innovative and investigator-initiated research projects by leading advanced investigators complements the ERC Starting Grant scheme by targeting researchers who have already established themselves as being independent research leaders in their own right Now ~53% of Annual ERC Call Budget Annual calls: open in autumn and close in spring Grants of up to €2.5 million over 5 yrs (€3.5 million in certain cases) ERC - Introduction

11 Objectives and Policy Context: Make Europe more attractive to researchers Structuring effect on the European Research Area through transnational and intersectoral mobility in order to create a European labour market for researchers Strengthen human potential by: Encouraging people to become researchers Encouraging researchers to carry out their research in Europe Trans-national and inter-sectoral mobility €4.7 Billion Marie Curie Actions FP7 – Marie Curie Actions

12 Definition of researchers Early-Stage Researchers0 - 4 years (FTE) from obtaining degree that qualified them to embark on a doctorate Experienced Researchersi)in possession of a PhD or i)at least 4 years experience (FTE) FP7 – Marie Curie Actions

13 Marie Curie Actions Overview FP7 – Marie Curie Host ActionsIndividual Actions Initial Training Networks (ITN) Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) Intra-European Fellowships Incoming International Fellowships Outgoing International Fellowships European Reintegration Grants International Reintegration Grants

14 Intra-European Fellowships Training through a research project prepared by an experienced researcher in coordination with the host organisation Researchers based in the EU or Associated Country Must have spent less than 12 months in the last three years in the country where the fellowship is undertaken 12 – 24 months in an EU Member State or Associated Country Individual applies with host and project Next deadline August 2011 FP7 – Marie Curie Actions

15 International Outgoing Fellowships FP7 – Marie Curie Actions Acquiring new knowledge in the third country – bringing it back to the EU/AS EU Member or Associated State Nationals only Only fellowship that retains a nationality criterion 24 – 36 months in total of which 12 -24 months in third country Mandatory return phase of 1 year Individual applies with host

16 International Incoming Fellowships FP7 – Marie Curie Actions Experienced researchers based in third countries come to EU/AS 12 – 24 months incoming phase in EU/AS Individual applies with host, contract between EC and host Knowledge-sharing

17 European Re-integration Grants FP7 – Marie Curie Actions (Re)-integration into research career following a period of transnational mobility Applicants must have already benefited from a Marie Curie fellowship under FP6 or FP7 - 18 months minimum FTE The European Re-integration Grant: Supports a research project of 2- 3 years Contributes to the research costs Researcher applies with host institution Start within 12 months of your fellowship end

18 Initial Training Network (ITN) FP7 – Marie Curie - ITN A consortium of institutions develops a joint training programme At least 3 EU Member or Associated States ( of which 2 must be MS or Candidate Countries) Fellowships for 3 months to 3 years Training focussed on Early Stage Researchers Industrial participation a requirement Optional: - recruiting a ‘visiting scientist’ - hold short training events

19 Industry Academia Pathways & Partnerships (IAPPs) FP7 – Marie Curie - IAPP Partnership – at least one commercial and one non- commercial entity Staff exchange – early stage or experienced researchers (and possibly technical staff and research managers!) for between 2 months and 2 years Recruit experienced researchers for between 2 months and 2 years Organise common workshops/conferences Inter-sectoral mobility possible, within framework of whole project, in same country up to a maximum of 30% of total researcher months

20 International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) Two-way staff secondments between institutions in EU/AC and eligible third countries At least two participants from two different MS/AC and one partner from an eligible third country Secondment between 0 – 12 months Project duration of 24 – 48 months Commission contribution: EUR 1800/researcher/month for EU/AC secondments FP7 – Marie Curie - IRSES

24 Erasmus Mundus (2009-2013) Objectives: ·Enhance quality in European higher education ·Promotion of EU as a centre of excellence in learning around the world ·Promotion of intercultural understanding through cooperation with 3rd countries as well as the development of 3rd countries in higher education Three actions Action 1 – Joint Masters and joint doctoral programmes, with scholarships/fellowships for participating students/staff Action 2 – partnership between Europe and third country Action 3 – projects to enhance the attractiveness and image of European higher education world-wide

25 Erasmus Mundus – how it works Consortium – 3+ countries/institutions Students apply to the consortium 5 year funding (includes management costs, student scholarships (7- 17), mobility grants, 3rd country scholarship) Award criteria (Masters) Academic quality (30) Course integration (25) Course management (20) Student facilities (15) Quality assurance and evaluation (10) Call open = November Deadline = April

26 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate How it works: Minimum 3 partners 4 year programme Research training Mobility Financial - Management costs 50,000 pa. - Scholarships (61200 – 129,000 for 4 years, amount depending on mobility) Award criteria · Relevance (25) · Contribution to excellence (25) · Quality (50) - of partnership, of organisation, student facilities
