  1. HORIZON 2020 The New EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2014-2020 EXCELLENT SCIENCE Peter Fisch DG RTD A.5

  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. Investment in R&D is part of the solutionto exit from the economic crises

  4. What is Horizon 2020? • A core part of key European policy initiatives (Europe 2020, Innovation Union, European Research Area): • Responding to the economic crisis to invest 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 • Budget of just over €70 billion in constant prices (79 billion in current prices including inflation)

  5. What's new • A single programmebringing together three separate programmes/initiatives* • Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms of innovation • Focus on societal challengesfacing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport • Simplified accessfor all companies, universities, institutes in all 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)

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

  7. 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

  8. Proposed funding (€ million, 2014-2020)

  9. Excellent Science – European Research Council • Objectives for 2020: • The best researchers are participating in the ERC’s competitions • ERC funding has led directly to scientific publications of the highest quality and to the commercialisation of innovative technologies / ideas • ERC has contributed significantly to making Europe a more attractive environment for the world’s best scientists Horizon 2020

  10. Excellent Science – European Research Council • Will continue: • to operate on a ‘bottom-up basis • to have ‘research excellence’ as sole criterion • to fund ‘individual teams’ • to provide funding for starting researchers to make transition to independence • to support new ways of working with potential to create breakthrough results • New for Horizon 2020: • Higher budget to build on success of FP7 grant schemes • Improved governance with a full-time president based in Brussels Horizon 2020

  11. Excellent Science – Future and Emerging Technologies • Expanded from ICT to be used as cross-cutting instrument • Supports frontier research: • alternative ideas, concepts or paradigms of risky or non-conventional nature Horizon 2020

  12. Excellent Science – Future and Emerging Technologies • Three strands: • FET Open • fostering novel ideas • FET Pro-Active • nurturing emerging themes and communities • FET Flagships • tackling grand interdisciplinary science and technology challenges Horizon 2020

  13. Excellent Science – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions • New for Horizon 2020: • Simplification and rationalisation of activities: • Goes from 9 actions to 4 broader lines of activity… • Improved participation of businesses and other socio-economic actors • Increased possibility of portability of grants • Stronger emphasis on communicating results and on outreach activities • New name … Horizon 2020

  14. Excellent Science – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions • Innovative Training Networks - ITN • Training Networks, European Industrial Doctorates, Joint Doctorates • Individual Fellowships - IF • Support for experienced researchers undertaking international and inter-sector mobility • Research and Innovation Staff Exchange - RISE • International and inter-sector cooperation through the exchange of staff • Co-funding of programmes - COFUND • Co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (doctoral programmes,fellowship programmes) Horizon 2020

  15. Excellent Science – Research Infrastructures • 1. Developing European Research Infrastructures for 2020 and beyond • • Developing new world-class Research Infrastructures • • Integrating and opening national and regional Research Infrastructures of pan-European interest • • Development, deployment and operation of ICT based e-Infrastructures • 2. Fostering the innovation potential of Research Infrastructures and their human resources • 3. Reinforcing European RI policy and international cooperation Horizon 2020

  16. Excellent Science – Research Infrastructures Example: Developing new world-class Research Infrastructures • Support the conceptual design of new research infrastructures, which are of a clear European dimension and interest: • Support the preparatory or pre-implementation phase of projects suggested by ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) Horizon 2020
