  2. Content • Why to participate - H2020 Overview • Where to participate (focus on SSH) • Integration of SSH across Horizon 2020 • Horizontal actions • Science with and for Society • Widening • Challenge 6 • How to participate in Horizon 2020 • From a proposal preparation to a project implementation • H2020 experts

  3. Why to participate – HORIZON 2020 overview

  4. What is Horizon 2020http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/ • EU research and innovation framework programme for 2014-2020 • A core part of Europe 2020 strategy & its Innovation Union flagship initiative aiming at: • 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

  5. H2020 support aimed at: • Funding researchers and innovators at the cutting edge of their fields working on the latest breakthroughs; • Supporting projects across the cycle from research to innovation; • Creation of opportunities to build research teams in Member States and with their international partners in the areas where the innovation and research potential is underexploited; • Encouraging the training of researchers including exchange of researchers between industry and academia; • Helping to plug the gap between innovative research and its exploitation through a suite of financial instruments.

  6. "Innovation" in H2020 • Product innovation • Process innovation • Marketing innovation • Organisational innovation • … and Social innovation … Source: Oslo Manual and EC

  7. H2020 Types of actions / Funding schemes • Research and innovation actions: collaborative research activities (Maximum rate of 100%, indirect cost flat rate 25%) • Innovation actions: activities directly aimed at producing plans and arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved products, processes or services (Maximum rate of 70%, indirect cost flat rate 25%; exception: 100% maximum funding rate for non-profit organisations) • Coordination and support actions: activities to accompany research (Maximum rate of 100%, indirect cost flat rate 25%) • SME instruments: support for SMEs over three phases: feasibility study, research/demonstration, commercialization • Co-funded actions: ERA-NET (for national and regional research funding bodies) • Direct funding: grants, prizes, procurement, and financial instruments

  8. Three pillars of H2020 • Excellent science • Industrial leadership • Societal challenges

  9. 1. EXCELLENT SCIENCE • European Research Council (ERC) • Frontier research by the best individual teams • Future and Emerging Technologies • Collaborative research to open new fields of innovation • Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) • Opportunities for training and career development • Research infrastructures • Ensuring access to world-class facilities

  10. 2. INDUSTRIAL LEADERSHIP • Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies (LEIT) • ICT;Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology; Space • Access to risk finance • help to companies / organisations engaged in R&I to gain easier access, via financial instruments, to loans, guarantees, counter-guarantees and hybrid, mezzanine and equity finance • Innovation in SMEs • Postering all forms of innovation in all types of SMEs

  11. 3. SOCIETAL CHALLENGES • Health, demographic change and wellbeing • Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy • Secure, clean and efficient energy • Smart, green and integrated transport • Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials • Europe in a Changing World: Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies • Secure societies - Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens

  12. HORIZONTAL ACTIVITIES • Spreading excellence and widening participation • Science with and for society EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY (EIT) EURATOM

  13. WIDESPREAD - Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation: Background National / regional disparities in research excellence and innovation performance hamper competitiveness, business growth and employment creation. A number of countries are experiencing low participation in the EU Framework Programmes; Disparities due to structural issues, such as: insufficient national RDI investment, lack of synergies between certain countries national research systems and EU research landscape, insufficient capacities variations in wages level reduced access to international networks. Size of projects – large ones problematic for small countries Availability of information, training and advice 13

  14. WIDESPREAD – measures to widen participation Teaming of excellent research institutions and low performing RDI regions Twinning of research institutions ERA chairs Policy Support Facility Supporting access to international networks for researchers and innovators (through COST) Strengthening the administrative and operational capacity of transnational networks of National Contact Points More info: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/h2020-section/spreading-excellence-and-widening-participation 14

  15. Where to participate (focus on SSH)

  16. 1. Integration of SSH Social sciences and humanities research will be fully integrated into each of the specific objectives of Horizon 2020… Council Decision L 347/965 establishing the Specific Programme H2020 • General Integration: All Societal Challenges, LEIT (Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies) and activities under Excellent Science are generally open to SSH contributions in all their activities – integration of SSH as genuine interdisciplinarity • Dedicated Integration: In some Societal Challenges and parts of LEIT a specific SSH line of activity called 'the socio-economic dimension of…' is delineated, i.e. requires SSH research – 37% of all topics under the programmed parts of H2020 are SSH "flagged ” - http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020/ftags/ssh.html#c,topics=flags/s/SSH/1/1&+callDeadline/desc

  17. 2. SSH in Excellent Science • The European Research Council (ERC - http://erc.europa.eu)is already a major funding source for investigator-driven frontier research. About 17 % of the ERC budget will be allocated to SSH under Horizon 2020. • Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA - http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/h2020-section/marie-sklodowska-curie-actions) give opportunities for greater mobility and network building. The SSH share is 11-12%. 17

  18. 3. Societal Challenge 6Europe in the Changing World: Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies

  19. Societal Challenge 6 • H2020 is not a simple continuation of FP7 - there is no specific SSH work programme. Challenge 6 focus is on : • Orientation towards European societal challenges: research and innovation activities to increase the impact of the funding • Orientation towards EU political priorities: Europe 2020 and emerging political issues of European relevance • Leitmotiv of the 2 years WP 2014-15: economic crisis and the path to sustainable growth

  20. 3. Challenge 6 Work Programme H2020 Work Programme 2014-2015 - 13. Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies • From the Challenge 6 website: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/node/85 • From the calls website on the Participant Portal: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/opportunities/h2020

  21. Societal Challenge 6 structure • 5 CALLS containing • 43 topics • 6 "Other actions" • Topics composed of • Specific Challenge: sets the context, the problem to be addressed, why intervention is necessary • Scope: delineates the problem, specifies the focus and the boundaries of the potential action BUT without describing specific approaches • Expected Impact: describes the key elements of what is expected to be achieved in relation to the specific challenge

  22. H2020 – Challenge 6 topics: bottom-up in terms of content and budget • Topics are described in a rather open fashion, less prescriptive than often under FP7, i.e. proposers can address the topics in a comprehensive way, in a focussed way or cover other issues relevant for addressing the topic • Call text provides an indicative budget range for research projectsin order to indicate the average expected size of the proposal; however, any amount is possible, i.e. no eligibility criteria regarding the budget size
