UK Research Office

  • UKRO’s Mission:

    “To promote effective UK engagement in EU research, innovation and higher education activities”

  • The Office:

    • Is based in Brussels, was established in 1984

    • Is sponsored by the seven UK Research Councils

    • Around 130 research organisations subscribe to UKRO


Rationale
Rationale

“.. Ensure excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career and knowledge-exchange opportunities through cross-border and cross-sector mobility of researchers to best prepare them to face current and future societal challenges”

Msca in horizon 2020
MSCAin Horizon 2020

  • Operates in a ‘bottom-up’ basis

  • Open to all research and innovation domains – from basic research to market take-up

  • Mobility is a key requirement

  • Aim: develop new knowledge / enhance skills of people behind research and innovation

  • Dissemination and public engagement through public outreach activities

  • Total budget: €6.2bn (compared with €4.7bn in FP7)


Definitions
Definitions

Mobility Rule:

At the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals, or recruitment/secondment by the host organisation, depending on the action, researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.”


Msca 4 schemes
MSCA – 4 Schemes

Also:Researchers’ Night


Innovative training networks
Innovative Training Networks

  • “Aim to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative researchers, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit”

  • Competitively selected joint research training/doctoral programmes implemented by partnerships of universities, research institutions, businesses, SMEs and other socio-economic actors from different countries across Europe (and beyond).

  • Focus on scientific/ technological knowledge through research on individual/personalised projects

  • Exposure to non-academic sector

  • Transferable skills training e.g. communication, research management, IP, ethics, societal outreach, entrepreneurship


Innovative training networks1
Innovative Training Networks

  • The ITN scheme consists of 3 strands:

  • Other new features:

    • Participants defined as ‘academic’ and ‘non-academic’

    • Early stage researchers (ESRs) only

    • Innovative Doctoral Programmestrand only through COFUND



Itn activities
ITN activities

  • Four year programme (max three year support for each ESR)

  • Activities include:

Research and innovation

Secondments, placements

Summer schools



Individual fellowships
Individual Fellowships

  • “Aim to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition at multi- or interdisciplinary level through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility”

  • Supports Experienced Researchers only

  • Opportunities to acquire new knowledge and work on research in a European context, or outside Europe

  • Specific support for return and reintegration of researchers to Europe who have previously worked here

  • Supports career restart for individuals with high potential


Individual fellowships1
Individual Fellowships

Mobility rule for CAR and RIG: “researcher has not resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 3 years in the 5 years immediately prior to the relevant deadline”

*) AND “researcher has not been active in research for at least 12 months”

**) AND “researcher has previously been active in Europe for at least five consecutive years”


Individual fellowships2
Individual Fellowships

  • Optional intersectoralsecondmentthat should significantly add to the impact of the research project

  • Must take place in a MS/AC

  • Must occur during the fellowship

  • Secondment phase can be a single period or divided into shorter mobility periods

    • For a fellowship > 18 months, secondment phase may be up to 6 months

    • For a fellowship ≤ 18 months, secondment phase may be up to 3 month


Research and innovation staff exchange
Research and Innovation Staff Exchange

  • “Aim to promote international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa) for the advancement of science and development of innovation”

  • Should involve institutions from the academic and non-academic sectors (particularly SMEs) based in MS/AC and/or third countries

  • Development of joint research and innovation project partnerships

  • Knowledge sharing via international and/or inter-sector mobility through two way secondments of (ESRs /ERs/support staff) with built-in return mechanism

    • Exchanges between MS/AC only: secondments must be inter-sectoral

    • Exchanges between MS/AC and third countries: secondments can be same sector and/or intersectoral


Research and innovation staff exchange1
Research and Innovation Staff Exchange

  • Participants must be from at least three different countries, at least two of which are MS/AC

  • If all participants in same sector one participant country must be a third country

  • Secondmentperiod - 1 to 12 months- does not need to be continuous

  • Activities of the programme

Joint research and innovation

Networking

Sharing of knowledge

Career development of staff

New skills acquisition

Workshops, Conferences


Cofund
COFUND

  • “Aims at stimulating regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers’ training, mobility and career development, spreading the best practices of MSCA”

  • Supports new or existing programmes for international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary research training and transnational and cross-sector mobility of researchers

  • Two streams

Fellowship programmes

Doctoral programmes



Researchers night
Researchers’ Night

  • “Aims to bring the researchers closer to the public at large and to increase public awareness of the research and innovation activities and the impact of researchers’ work”

  • European Researchers’ Night takes place on the last Friday of September annually

  • Events can start on early Friday afternoon and last until early Saturday morning

  • Participants can be any legal entity in MS/AC and/or a partnership at regional, national or international level

  • Funding will cover two editions of the Night (2014 and 2015) but funding for one edition only may be considered

  • Involvement of researchers funded by FP7/Horizon 2020 encouraged
