European science and technology policy

  • Object under scrutiny:

  • Regulation to establish the next Framework Programme for R&D (Horizon 2020)

  • (legally binding text, joint approval by the EC and by the EP is required)

  • State of Play:

  • Proposal by the European Commission

  • 2. and 3. (in parallel):

  • - Amendments approved by (Competitiveness) Council (Research ministers)

  • - Amendments approved by the European Parliament (rapporteur: Teresa Madurell)

  • 4. “Trilogue” negotiations in view of a compromise (January 2013 – April 2013?), just started

  • What is at stake now?

  • What are the main contributions by the EP?

  • Who is participating in the (final) decision-making process and who is deciding?


European science and technology policy

What is at stake?

Main contributions by the EP (a personal view)

(By the order of their appearance on stage)

Increasing the budget (the role of the EU budget for R&D as a counter-cycle instrument)

Promoting Gender equality, Human Resources for S&T, Universities,

Fighting the R&D divide within the EU

Requiring mandatory open access to scientific publications

Boosting SME participation and providing a “fast track” to innovation

Limiting the abuse of public-private partnerships

Providing a rationale for, and streamlining EU international R&D cooperation

Science with and for Society: a renewed strategy for strengthening the social constituency for science

Strategic Coordination of R&D objectives across H2020: establishing Strategic Scientific Panels, with a priority on Health

New performance indicators for H2020: measuring change, internal imbalances within the EU and international comparisons

Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation (a strategy for European cohesion)

Providing for Collaborative frontier research (FET becomes FEST as a first step)

Space: recognising ESA as the major European asset for Space industry and R&D in Europe

Understanding European Societies and Social Change (Social Sciences and Humanities, finally!)

And: accepting the status quo on stem cells research…(until when?)


European science and technology policy

What is at stake?

Compromise

Principles

Drawing a red line

Mobilizing…

… a renewed constituency for science and technology development?

(with the EP)

The impact of the ideas, priorities and objectives of H2020 on national R&D policies may well be as (more) important as the funding to be expected:

In the current economic period, national budgets for R&D are key


European science and technology policy

What is at stake?

Main contributions by the EP (a personal view)

I

Increasing the budget (the role of the EU budget for R&D as a counter-cycle instrument)

Promoting Gender equality, Human Resources for S&T, Universities

Requiring mandatory open access to scientific publications

Boosting SME participation

II

New performance indicators for H2020: measuring change, internal imbalances within the EU and international comparisons

A strategy for European cohesion: Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation. Fighting the R&D divide within the EU

IV

Science with and for Society: a renewed strategy for strengthening the social constituency for science

VI

Providing for Collaborative frontier research (FET becomes FEST as a first step) – moving beyond the ERC

VII

Space: recognising ESA as the major European asset for Space industry and R&D in Europe

An open debate: Intergovernmental R&D international organisations and their future.

For Spain and Portugal, a joint immediate (national) concern: the INL (International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory) – a unique instrument (now politically orphan?)


European science and technology policy

What is at stake?

Main contributions by the EP (a personal view)

I

Increasing the EU budget for R&D : a strong political signal for the need of counter-cyclical development policies

increasing national budgets for R&D in all EU countries is imperative now

European science and technology policy

SPREADING EXCELLENCE AND WIDENING PARTICIPATION

Twinning and networking measures

Building synergies with Structural Funds

(a) linking emerging centres of excellence in less innovation performing Member States and regions to international leading counterparts elsewhere in Europe;

(b) launching a competition for the foundation of internationally competitive research centres in less innovation performing regions

(c) establishing 'ERA Chairs' to attract outstanding academics

(d) attributing "Return Grants" to excellent researchers

(e) support complementary agreements signed among organisations beneficiaries of the collaborative research projects

(f) strengthening successful networks

(g) developing specific training mechanisms on how to participate in Horizon 2020

(h) setting up an online marketplace where intellectual property can be advertised

Providing for Collaborative frontier research

- moving beyond the ERC

Future and Emerging Sciences and Technologies (FEST)

Future and emerging sciences and technologies shall support collaborative research in order to extend Europe's capacity for advanced and paradigm-changing innovation. It shall foster scientific collaboration across disciplines on radically new, high-risk ideas and accelerate development of the most promising emerging areas of science and technology as well as the Union wide structuring of the corresponding scientific communities.
