initial key messages
INITIAL KEY MESSAGES
  • FP7 is on course: making contributions to
      • European science
      • The ERA
  • There are acknowledged difficulties in:
      • Implementation
      • Connecting research and innovation
      • Relationship between Member State & EU levels

>> But it is important to recognise and applaud what is good

strengths of fp7
STRENGTHS OF FP7
  • Sound basis for attaining impact aims
      • Breadth and scope of ‘reach’ of FP7
      • Reassuringly fair and robust conduct of calls
  • Encouraging evidence on leverage
  • Fostering development of capacity
      • Research infrastructure
      • Training and mobility of researchers
  • Excellence is being achieved
      • European Research Council a visible success
      • High standards in funded Cooperation projects
        • Average of 13.1 (threshold 10) and 4.4 (4)
in need of improvement
IN NEED OF IMPROVEMENT… 
  • Slow progress on more female participation
    • Member State challenge as much as FP7
      • Evident constraints from size of researcher base
  • Risk-trust balance out of kilter
  • Success rates in some areas
      • Risk of deterring high quality applicants
      • Apparent underperformance of EU12
  • Connecting research and innovation
      • Finding the right balance for industry
the most heard concern

THE MOST HEARD CONCERN…

SIMPLIFICATION

(OR RATHER, ITS ABSENCE)

ten recommendations i many more throughout text
TEN RECOMMENDATIONS I (Many more throughout text)
  • Advance ERA & Innovation Union goals
    • Concentration, e.g. on grand challenges
    • Importance of attaining critical mass
  • Enhance research infrastructures
  • At least maintain funding, now & in FP8
  • Well-articulated innovation strategy needed
  • A quantum leap needed in simplification
    • No more excuses: JUST DO IT!
ten recommendations ii
TEN RECOMMENDATIONS II
  • Rethink mix of funding measures
    • More ‘bottom up’, open calls
    • Don’t neglect training aspects of ‘knowledge’
  • Consider moratorium on new instruments
  • Reinforce efforts on female participation
    • Galvanise Member States
  • Facilitate capacity building across EU
    • Improve coherence with Structural Funds
  • Open-up better to international cooperation
implications for fp8
IMPLICATIONS FOR FP8
  • Ensure connections to core EU policies
      • Europe 2020, Innovation Union, grand challenges
      • Better integration of industry
      • Conjunction of scientific, competitive and societal
  • More outward looking structure & stance
  • Main strands to be retained but adapted
      • But beware further proliferation of measures
  • Finish unfinished business
      • Female participation
      • Resolve flaws in coordination with Member States
