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
