  1. HORIZON 2020 The New EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020 Martina Desole APRE Coordinator ERACAN Plus

  2. The Multiannual Financial Framework 2014-2020: European Council conclusions, 8 February 2013 • Key challenge: stabilise the financial and economic system while taking measures to create economic opportunities Smart & inclusive growth (€451 billion) Sustainable growth, natural resources (€373 billion) Security and citizenship (€16 billion) Global Europe (€58 billion) Administration (€61.6 billion) HORIZON 2020 Competitive Business SMEs Education, Youth, Sport Connecting Europe Cohesion TOTAL €960 billion

  3. What is Horizon 2020? • €79 billion (current prices) research and innovation funding programme (2014-2020) • A core part of Europe 2020, Innovation Union & European Research Area: • Responding to the economic crisis by investing in future jobs and growth • Addressing people’s concerns about their livelihoods, safety and environment • Strengthening the EU’s global position in research, innovation and technology

  4. What's new? • A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives* • Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms of innovation • Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health,clean energy and transport • Simplified access, for all companies, universities, institutes inall EU countries and beyond • The 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7), innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)

  5. Three priorities • Excellent science • Industrial leadership • Societal challenges

  6. Priority 1. Excellent science • Why: • World class science is the foundation of tomorrow’s technologies, jobs and wellbeing • Europe needs to develop, attract and retain research talent • Researchers need access to the best infrastructures

  7. Funding (€ million, 2014-2020)

  8. Priority 2. Industrial leadership • Why: • Strategic investments in key technologies (e.g. advanced manufacturing, micro-electronics) underpin innovation across existing and emerging sectors • Europe needs to attract more private investment in research and innovation • Europe needs more innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to create growth and jobs

  9. Funding (€ million, 2014-2020)

  10. Priority 3. Societal challenges • Why: • Concerns of citizens and society/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

  11. Funding (€ million, 2014-2020) • Additional funding for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities (2014-2018)

  12. International cooperation • International cooperation = key cross-cutting priority of Horizon 2020, in particular to: • Strengthen the Union's excellence, as well as its economic competitiveness • Tackle global societal challenges • Support the Union's external policies • Basic approach provided by Horizon 2020 Regulation and Rules for Participation • Strategy for international cooperation (COM(2012) 497): enhancing and focusing international cooperation activities (in terms of areas and partners)

  13. International cooperation in Horizon 2020 Key message: Horizon 2020 is open to participation fromacross the world! Clear ambition to substantiallyincrease participation of international partners! How? • General opening • Targeted international cooperation actions across Horizon 2020 • Supported by horizontal international cooperationactivities(in Horizon 2020 Challenge 6: follow-up to Capacities INCO programme)

  14. General opening • Horizon 2020 is open to participation from across the world • Automatic funding: • Member States (including overseas departments and overseas territories) • Associated Countries • exhaustive list of countries in annex to work programme (but: no longer BRIC + Mexico in this list!) • For other countries, funding only in exceptional cases: • when provision is made in the call text • bilateral agreement (e.g. Health challenge – NIH) • when the Commission deems it essential (case by case assessment)

  15. Targeted actions • Targeted international cooperation activities across Horizon 2020: area for cooperation and partner specified upfront • Areas identified based on analysis of a set of criteria to ensure common interest and mutual benefit: • Research and innovation excellence • Framework conditions/access to markets • Contribution to international commitments • Frameworks to engage in cooperation and lessons learned • Differentiation by countries/regions: enlargement/neighbourhood/EFTA, industrialised and emerging countries, developing countries • International cooperation as part of strategic planning for each part of Horizon 2020 • Result: roadmaps for international cooperation with international partners (to be published early 2014)

  16. New strategy for international cooperation Communication adopted on 14 September 2012 (COM(2012) 497) Key elements: Multi-annual roadmaps for international cooperation with strategic partners Toolbox of instruments Horizontal INCO activities Information gathering Common principles for engaging in international cooperation Partnership with Member States Stronger engagement with international organisations/multilateral fora Stronger governance, monitoring and evaluation

  17. Implementation in WP2014-15 • All research calls are open for Canadian project partners. • Horizon 2020 first calls will be published on 11 December 2013. • Please read the work programmes of the calls. • Please apply as project participant in a research consortium • - or for a mobility grant to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme • - or a grant from the European Research Council • Please register also in our expert database to help with proposal evaluations.
