What is Horizon 2020? • Commission proposal for a 79 Billion euro research and innovation funding programme (2014-20) • Part of the new EU budget 2014-2020, complementing Structural Funds, education, etc. • A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area: • Responding to the economic crisis to invest in future jobs and growth • Addressing peoples’ concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment. • Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology
€79 Billion 2007-2013 52 Billion Euro 2014-2020 79 Billion Euro
3 Societal challenges • Why: • EU policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc.) cannot be achieved without innovation • Breakthrough solutions come from multi-disciplinary collaborations, including social sciences & humanities • Promising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled up
Societal Challenges funding (M€, 2014-20) *Additional €1 050m for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities (2014-18). Does not include ITER.
Horizon 2020 - What’s new… • A single programmebringing together three separate programmes/initiatives that will cover all research and innovation funding currently provided through: • Framework Programme for Research and Technical Development (€53bn) • Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) (€3.6bn) • European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) (€309m) • More innovation, all forms of innovation, from research to retail • Focus on societal challengesfacing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy, green transport • Simplified access, for all companies, state bodies, universities, institutes in all EU countries and beyond • Strengthening complementarities with the Structural Funds:
Simplification: Rules for Participation • 1. A single set of rules • • Adapted for the whole research and innovation cycle covering all research programmes and funding bodies • 2. One project – one funding rate • • Maximum of 100% of the total eligible costs (except for actions close to market, where a 70% maximum will apply) • • Indirect eligible costs ( Overheads) a flat rate of 25% of direct eligible costs / VAT will now be an eligible cost • 3. Simple evaluation criteria • • 3 Criteria - Excellence – Impact – Implementation • 4. New forms of funding • aimed at innovation: pre-commercial procurement, inducement prizes, dedicated loan and equity instruments • 5. International participationfacilitated while protecting EU interests

Technology Platforms—What are they?… “Industry-led stakeholder forums with the aim of defining medium to long-term research and technological objectives and developing roadmaps to achieve them, ultimately enhancing European competitiveness “ • The Technology Platforms are industry-led to ensure there is an adequate focus on research funding in areas with a high degree of industrial relevance.
The Technology Platforms – What do they do?.. • They produce future roadmaps which form the basis for future topics in the Work Programme to be funded • Strategic Research Agenda / Technology Roadmaps • Initiators of Public Private Partnership’s (PPP’s) • Initiators of Joint Technology Initiatives (Very Large PPP’s operated directly by the industry - ( Clean Sky 1.6 B€, Shift2Rail ???) • The Various Technology Platforms have Strongly influenced the Work Programmes • in FP7 and will continue to do so in Horizon 2020
