FP7 / Ideas

  • Role of the Scientific Council
    • Establish overall scientific strategy and preparation of work programmes (incl. calls for proposals, evaluation criteria)
    • Define scientific management: peer review methodology; selection and accreditation of experts; monitor quality of operations and evaluate programme implementation
    • Assure communication with the scientific community

FP7 / IdeasWork Programme / Launch strategy

  • Two streams of activity are foreseen:

- Early stage independent investigators (“Starting Grants”)

> 2 < 9 years after PhD

up to 5 years project

~1/3 of the annual budget:

300-350 M€ per year (200 grants)

- Established Investigators (“Advanced Grants”)

fp7 ideas starting grants evaluation criteria
Principal Investigator: Potential to perform world class research

Quality of research output: Has the Principal Investigator published in high quality peer reviewed journals or the equivalent? To what extent are these publications ground-breaking and demonstrative of independent creative thinking and capacity to go significantly beyond the state of the art?

Intellectual capacity and creativity: To what extent does the Principal Investigator's record of research collaborations, project conception, supervision of students and publications demonstrate that he/she isable to confront major research challenges in the field, and to initiate new productive lines of thinking?

2. Quality of the proposed research project

Ground-breaking nature of the research: Does the proposed research address important challenges in the field(s) addressed? Does it have suitably ambitious objectives, which go substantially beyond thecurrent state of the art (e.g. including trans-disciplinary developments and novel or unconventiona approaches)?

Potential impact: Does the research open new and important scientific, technological or scholarly horizons?

Methodology: a) is the outlined scientific approach (including the activities to be undertaken by the individual team members) feasible? (Stage 1) b) is the proposed research methodology (including when pertinent the use of instrumentation, other type of infrastructures etc.) comprehensive and appropriate for to the project? Will it enable the goals of the project convincingly to be achieved within the timescales and resources proposed and the level of risk associated with a challenging research project? (Stage 2)

3. Research Environment

Transition to independence: Will the proposed project enable the Principal Investigator to make or consolidate the transition to independence?

Hosting institution (normally applicant legal entity): Does the institution hosting the project have most of the infrastructure necessary for the research to be carried out? Is it in a position to provide an appropriate intellectual environment and infrastructural support and to assist in achieving the ambitions for the project and the Principal Investigator?

Participation of other legal entities: If it is proposed that other legal entities participate in the

project, in addition to the applicant legal entity, is their participation fully justified by the scientificadded value they bring to the project?

Upperfunding limits (1)
upper funding limits 2
Actions that will be reimbursed up to100%:

Frontier research

Coordination and support actions

Training and career development of researchers

Upper funding limits (2)
reimbursement of eligible costs
Most funding schemes, particularly at beginning of FP7 will use reimbursement of eligible costs


actual (average personnel costs may be used if do not differ significantly from actual)

incurred during duration of project

in accordance with the beneficiary usual accounting and management principles

recorded in the accounts of beneficiary

used for the sole purpose of achieving the objectives of the project

Non-eligible (identifiable indirect taxes including VAT…)

Reimbursement of eligible costs
indirect cost
Participants may charge eligible directandindirect costs

Reimbursement ofindirect costs:

For all:

either actual overhead, or simplifiedmethod, or

flat rate of 20% of direct costs

For Non profit Public Bodies, Secondary and Higher Education establishments, Research Organisations, and SMEs unable to identify real indirect costs, may apply for a flat rate of 60% for funding schemes with Research, Technological Development & Demonstration

For Coordination and Support Actions limit of

7% of direct costs

Indirect Cost
certification on the methodology
It aims at certifying the methodology of calculating(average) personnel costs and overhead rates

Waives the obligation of certificates for interim payments

Simplified certificate for final payments

Valid throughout FP7, on a voluntary basis, must be accepted by the EC

Particularly aimed at legal entities with multiple participation

Certification on the methodology
certification on financial statements
Under FP7 we do not talk anymore about audit certificates but aboutcertificate on financial statements (CFS)

Certificate on financial statements:

Mandatory when requested funding reaches 375,000 Euro per beneficiary (except for project of 2 years or less: CFS submitted at the end)

If above the threshold, mandatory for every beneficiary, except if a certification on the methodology is provided

Certification on financial statements
risk avoidance mechanism 1
Participant Guarantee Fund (“the Fund”):

All beneficiaires contribute to the Fund to insure against losses of a defaulting participant

The contribution shall not exceed 5% of the EC financial contribution due to each participant

Financial interests generated by the Fund will serve to cover financial risk

In principle this amount will be reimbursed at the end of the action

Risk avoidance mechanism (1)
Sources: Financial Regulation/Implementing Rules, FP7 and Rules for Participation

“Contract” becomes “Grant Agreement”

“Contractor” becomes “Beneficiary”

“Instruments” become “Funding Schemes”

“Audit certificate” becomes “Certificate on Financial Statement”

The results of the project (knowledge in FP6)becomes“Foreground”

Pre-existing know-how becomes“Background”

consortium agreement
Unless exempted by the call for proposals, participants will have to draw up a “consortium agreement”, to govern the following:

(a) The internal organisation of the consortium

(b) The distribution of the Community financial contribution

(c) Additional rules on dissemination and use including intellectual property rights arrangements, as appropriate

(d) The settlement of internal disputes.

Consortium agreement
who evaluates proposals how to become evaluator for fp7 cooperation
The Commission invites individuals to apply as prospective independent experts in order to be included in its database of experts for the Seventh Framework Programme

Who evaluates proposalsHow to become evaluator for FP7Cooperation
who evaluates proposals how to become evaluator for fp7 ideas
The Commission has invited the Member States to submit candidates as independent experts in order to be included in its specific database as panel Chairs and panel members and a pool of referees.

Panel Chairs are expected to be internationally recognised, senior scientists in their fields.

Panel members are expected to be senior scientists in their fields, actively pursuing research at the front line.
