HORIZON 2020 : Union's new funding program for research and innovation HORIZON 2020 : Main priorities HORIZON 2020 : Key novelties HORIZON 2020 : International cooperation HORIZON 2020 : Agenda Head lines
What is Horizon 2020? Originally : a Commission proposal of €80 billion for 2014-2020 bringing together three separate programs / initiatives (RFP, CIP, EIT) Now a guarantee of a budget ≥ RFP + CIP + EIT ≈ €71 billion A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area to : Tackle the economic crises investing in growth and future jobs, Address people’s concerns about their standard of living, safety and environment, Strengthen the Europe’s global place in research, innovation and technology.
Three priorities 1.Excellent science 2.Industrial leadership 3.Societal challenges
Priority 1 – Scientific Excellence WHY? World class science is the foundation of tomorrow’s technologies, jobs and wellbeing Europe needs to develop, attract and retain research talent Researchers need access to the best infrastructures
Priority 2 – Industrial leadership WHY? Strategic investments in key technologies (e.g. advanced manufacturing, microelectronics) underpin innovation across existing and emerging sectors Europe needs more innovative SMEs to create growth and jobs Europe needs to attract more private investment in research and innovation
Priority 3 – Societal challenges WHY? Concerns of citizens and society/EU policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc) Breakthrough solutions come from multidisciplinary collaborations, including social sciences & humanities Promising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled up
Key novelties in Horizon 2020 A single program bringing together three separate programs / initiatives : The Research Framework Program Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Program EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Coupling research to innovation - from research to retail, all forms of innovation Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport Simplified access for all companies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond.
Targeted thematic : Societal challenges of Horizon 2020 Investments, research infrastructures, products Market access’ opportunities Contribution to global commitments (MDG, Rio+20) Geographic differentiation : Industrial countries and emerging economies Enlargement and neighbourhood countries, EFTA Developing countries International cooperation in Horizon 2020

Participation rules’ simplification Single set of simpler and more coherent participation rules New balance between trust and control Moving from several funding rates for different beneficiaries and activities to just two Replacing the four methods to calculate overhead or «indirect costs» with a single flat rate Major simplification under the forthcoming financial regulation Successful applicants to get working more quickly: reduction of average time to grant by 100 days (current average of around 350 days under FP7) 13/03/2013 Jean Albergel
Geographic differentiation Targeted actions Top-down approach Principe du « common interest, mutual benefit » General opening principle Bottom-up approach Synergies between programmes and Member-States actions 13/03/2013 Jean Albergel International dimension in Horizon 2020
