Energy in the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation
Energy Policy and Horizon 2020
Commission proposal for 80b Euro research and innovation programme (2014-2020)
A single programme for three priority areas; excellent science, industrial leadership, societal challenges.
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
Horizon 2020-Industrial leadership
Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-20)
Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-2020)
Principle of excellence: continue to allocate funding on the basis of competitive calls, selecting only the best projects.
Clear division of labour between cohesion policy and Horizon 2020.
Cohesion policy: support for regions in building up their research and innovation capacity.
Horizon 2020: widen participation, better coordination between the two Union funding programmes, support policy learning reforms.
Accompanying measures in Horizon 2020 to ensure that excellence prevails wherever it exists, including: twinning, ERA chairs, support for access to international networks, development of smart specialisation strategies.
Objective: to make the transition to a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy system, in the face of increasingly scarce resources, increasing energy needs and climate change.
Broad lines of activities: (1) Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint by smart and sustainable use; (2) Low-cost, low-carbon electricity supply; (3) Alternative fuels and mobile energy sources; (4) A single, smart European electricity grid; (5) New knowledge and technologies; (6) Robust decision making and public engagement; (7) Market uptake of energy innovation.
Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on the basis of the Commission proposals
Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on EU budget 2014-2020 (including overall budget for Horizon 2020)
10 July 2012 Final calls under 7th Framework Programme for research to bridge gap towards Horizon 2020
Mid 2013: Adoption of legislative acts by Parliament and Council on Horizon 2020
1/1/2014: Horizon 2020 starts, launch of first calls
Guidelines contain a strong trend towards innovation
Generally link well to sectoral policies
Of course … national capitals are the key to achieving a good combination
Overall policy picture is favourable
Policy and economic reality favours scale and early deployment
If Horizon 2020 is approved it will be a key “icebreaker” in a “frozen” credit and investment climate
Need to combine sources of support, political and financial
Offshore grid in the front line for substantial support
Ocean energy does have a home in Horizon 2020, but it needs to organise in the policy context and prove its potential and maturity
