Key issues
Key Issues

  • FP6 is complex, challenging and competitive:

    • Sustainable Energy Systems (€810M)

    • New instruments/ categories of project

    • Proposers from > 25 countries eligible to participate

  • www.cordis.lu website is a key information source

  • SEI national role in promoting and co-ordinating energy RD&D

    • “National Contact Point” for FP5 and FP6 energy – information, guidance, access to EU NCP network

    • Administering national programmes, scope for co-funding

    • Seeking synergy and alignment


Key issues1
Key Issues

  • Concentration on a limited number of priorities

  • Networking of research teams

  • Creation of a genuine European added value

  • Structuring effect linking policies and schemes of:

    • national and regional authorities

    • other European actors

  • Use of new instruments (IP and NoE)

  • Co-ordination and simplification


Key issues2
Key Issues

Priority thematic areas:

  • Integrated Projects (IP)

  • Networks of Excellence (NoE)


Integrated projects
Integrated Projects

Purpose:

Designed to generate the knowledge required to implement the priority themes:

  • By integrating the “critical mass” of activities and resources needed

  • To achieve clearly defined but ambitious scientific and technological objectives


Integrated projects1
Integrated Projects

Activities:

  • Should contain a research component, technological development and/or demonstration components as appropriate

  • May contain a training component

  • Must be coherent and have appropriate management structure


Networks of excellence
Networks of Excellence

Purpose:

  • To strengthen scientific and technological excellence on a particular topic

  • By networking a critical mass of expertise to comprise a world class competence (a virtual “centre of excellence”)

  • To create permanent integration of research capabilities


Networks of excellence1
Networks of Excellence

Activities:

  • Jointly executed research activities

  • Development of common research platforms

  • Staff mobility and exchanges

  • Knowledge transfer

  • Training of researchers

  • Dissemination activities


Expressions of interest
Expressions of Interest

  • Expressions of Interest www.cordis.lu/fp6/eoi-instruments

  • Useful for informing the Commission and for finding prospective partners

  • Also useful to guide prospective applicants

  • Wasn’t a pre-requirement to file an EoI

  • All potential proposers advised to study


Expressions of interest1
Expressions of Interest

  • Mainly Integrated Projects (72% of short-to-medium term projects)

  • Understanding of Networks of Excellence poor

  • Many renewables, particularly biomass

  • Integration of renewables very poor

  • Good eco-buildings EoIs


Expressions of interest potential topics
Expressions of Interest/ Potential Topics

  • Wind energy in unconventional situations (offshore,grid interaction, etc.) (NoE)

  • Biogas for transport applications (NoE)

  • Biomass – combustion (NoE)

  • Ocean energy (NoE)

  • Distributed generation using renewables (IP)

  • Rehabilitation of social housing (SEC) (IP, NoE)

  • Eco-building design, demonstration, systems (IP)

  • Grid optimisation for distributed generation (including fuel cells, CHP) (IP)


Expressions of interest potential topics1
Expressions of Interest/ Potential Topics

  • Quality, efficiency, economics of distributed generation to assist CHP market penetration (NoE)

  • CO2 sequestration, especially pre-combustion CO2 capture

  • Energy strategy – the context for RTD (NoE > IP)

  • Fuel cells – high temperature for decentralised and mobile applications (IP, NoE)

  • Grid connected storage to support RES penetration

  • Biomass – barriers, combustion, transport applications (IP, NoE)


Expressions of interest potential topics2
Expressions of Interest/ Potential Topics

  • Carriers – Electricity (3 IP or NoE)

  • Renewables – Biomass (3 IP or NoE, 4 STRP)

  • Renewables – Wind (1 IP, 2 STRP)

  • Renewables – Ocean (1 STRP)

  • CO2 capture and sequestration (3 IP or NoE, 3 STRP)

  • Energy modelling (1 IP,2 STRP)

  • Eco-buildings (IPs + STRPs)

  • All topics (CA + SSA)


Expressions of interest comments
Expressions of Interest - Comments

  • EoIs very variable in quality; some abstracts very vague

  • Biomass (biofuels and bioelectricity) generally better than average

  • Search criteria don’t always work

  • Look at Commission’s own analysis of EoIs


Main steps
Main Steps

  • Study the detail of the First Call

  • Determine your area of interest

  • Articulate your proposition

  • Align this with the Work Programme and Call

  • Study Expressions of Interest: www.cordis.lu/fp6/eoi-instruments

    Aim to have this undertaken by mid-January

  • Test your project proposals – consult with SEI

  • Develop your project proposals – consult with SEI

  • Look for partners – consult with SEI
