  • European research infrastructures: focus on operation costs and supporting access for researchers to large-scale infrastructures, access to national infrastrucutres, e-infrastructure
  • Envisaged budget: about 28 billion Euros for Excellent Scinece part of Horizon 2020 planned at the moment, ERC funding doubled. Likely to change?
  • Still a number of open questions: e.g. which funding instruments to be used.

For the SNSF the followingprinciplesarekey:

  • basic, investigator-drivenresearchas the basis of all appliedresearchandinnovationachievementsand of a dynamic innovative economy
  • excellence is prime criterionof researchfunding in all Horizon 2020 instruments (cohesion different goal)
  • strong, independent ERC with excellence asonlyselectioncriterionand the possibilitytofund high risk/high rewardprojects. Nopriorityforspecificresearchtopicsortargetgroups!

View of a national funding organisation and topics to be discussed
  • co-operative, international and interdisciplinary research: flexible consortium sizes and management to be attractive for all research areas
  • research infrastructure with clear European added-value: helps attract research talent to Europe
  • Gender Equality: gender balance in review panels, avoidance of gender bias in all assessment procedures
  • simplification: ensures best researchers to participate, restrict number of instruments
  • crucial: collaboration and trust among all ERA stakeholders
  • multidirectional dialogue between science and policy
questions for discussion
Questions for discussion
  • The ERC has proven to be a success. How can it strike the right balance between developing the excellence of young reserarchers and consolidating the excellence of more experienced ones?
  • The support of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is a new part of Excellent Science. How can we ensure that FET complements the other parts within Excellenc Science and provides a bridge to industrial leadership and addressing societal challenges?
  • What is the most efficient role for Horizon 2020 to ensure the the priority of European infrastructures, e.g. those identified for ESFRI, is brought forward?
