  1. Opportunities for research related to Official Statistics … in Horizon 2020 (the next research framework programme of the European Commission) Official Statistics research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat

  2. Overview • Analysis of future research needs for Official Statistics • Opportunities for research on Official Statistics in the Horizon 2020 Research Framework Programme • The NTTS 2013 conference • Facilitated events Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat

  3. Analysis of the future research needs for Official Statistics • Main authors: • Professor Beat Hulliger • Professor Risto Lehtonen • Professor Ralf Münnich • Browser-friendly version on the CROS portal • Officially published by Eurostat(link provided on the CROS portal) http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/portal/page/portal/product_details/publication?p_product_code=KS-RA-12-026 Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat

  4. 6.1Roadmap 6.1.2. Fieldsof research and innovation (infrastructure&technology) Data capture, data integration and data access: • Big datasets • Mergingdata from different sources; integrating survey & register data; data integration • Techniques and standardisation of interface management for flexible communication between data systems within the ESS Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat

  5. 6.1 Roadmap (cont.) Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat 6.1.2. Fields of research and innovation Methodology “Beyond GDP” indicators: • Regional modelling within a globalised society (GIS; SAE) • The use of data from many different sources, including registers • An evaluation of methods that integrate different sources, use different methodologies and may • arrive at different results becomes increasingly important. • Prediction, forecasting Education (early-stage training and life-long learning) increasingly important. Societal challenges • Employment and competitiveness • Social inclusion • Energy security and climate change • Forecasting critical events DIME 27-28 February 2013 5

  6. Opportunities in Horizon 2020 • Horizon 2020 will fund EU research 2014-2020 • The 2014-2016 strategy will govern the three first years • The work programmes now cover two years (2014-2015) • Eurostat proposed two areas for the Strategy: 1. Reinforced democratic accountability – new frameworks for monitoring fairness and equity going beyond GDP-related monitoring, including indicators supporting: • Health, quality of life and wellbeing • Consumer empowerment and consumer conditions • A green economy • Inclusive societies 2. use of “big data” and “open data” to support evidence-based policymaking in various policy areas. Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat

  7. Horizon 2020 – strategy for 2014-2016 Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat Focus areas: • Personalising health and care • Sustainable food security • Blue growth: unlocking the potential of the oceans • Smart cities and communities • Competitive low-carbon energy • Energy Efficiency • Mobility for growth • Waste: a resource to recycle, reuse and recover raw materials • Water innovation: boosting its value for Europe • Overcoming the crisis: new ideas, strategies and governance structures for Europe • Disaster-resilience: safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change • Digital security DIME 27-28 February 2013 7

  8. Horizon 2020 – strategy for 2014-2016 Open data? Indicators? Secure access? Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat Focus areas: • Personalising health and care • Sustainable food security • Blue growth: unlocking the potential of the oceans • Smart cities and communities • Competitive low-carbon energy • Energy Efficiency • Mobility for growth • Waste: a resource to recycle, reuse and recover raw materials • Water innovation: boosting its value for Europe • Overcoming the crisis: new ideas, strategies and governance structures for Europe • Disaster-resilience: safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change • Digital security DIME 27-28 February 2013 8

  9. Horizon 2020 – strategy for 2014-2016 socio-economic research on: … the social, political and cultural consequences of and responses to the crisis, such as higher unemployment and the widening of social disparities… Official Statistics - research opportunities Martin Karlberg, Eurostat Focus areas: • Personalising health and care • Sustainable food security • Blue growth: unlocking the potential of the oceans • Smart cities and communities • Competitive low-carbon energy • Energy Efficiency • Mobility for growth • Waste: a resource to recycle, reuse and recover raw materials • Water innovation: boosting its value for Europe • Overcoming the crisis: new ideas, strategies and governance structures for Europe • Disaster-resilience: safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change • Digital security DIME 27-28 February 2013 9

  10. Horizon 2020 – Work Programme 2014-2015 • Based on the 2014-2016 strategy, the Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) will propose an Work Programme for 2014-2015 • The Horizon 2020 WP for 2014-2015 could include research lines for ”beyond GDP”, ”big data” and ”open data”. • Corresponding calls for proposals would then be issued by DG RTD. • It is then up to universities, research institutes – and NSIs! – to form consortia and submit proposals!
