Definizione e ruolo delle etp
Definizione e ruolo delle ETP di Photonics21

European Technology Platforms (ETPs) are industry-led stakeholder fora that develop short to long-term research and innovation agendas and roadmaps for action at EU and national level to be supported by both private and public funding.

Etp past and future role
ETP: past and future role di Photonics21

  • ETPs span a wide range of technology areas and have to date played an important role by developing joint visions, setting Strategic Research and Innovation Agendas and contributing to the definition of the research priorities including those under the Research Framework Programmes.

  • Building on the strategies for Europe 2020 and for an Innovation Union, the Commission's Horizon 2020 proposal for an integrated research and innovation framework programme recognises the role of ETPs as part of the external advice and societal engagement needed to implement Horizon 2020.

ETP: ruolo in Horizon 2020 di Photonics21

ETPs will therefore be a key element in the European innovation ecosystem and will help turn Europe into an Innovation Union, by taking a holistic view and:

  • developing strategies and provide a coherent business-focused analysis of research and innovation bottlenecks and opportunities related to societal challenges and industrial leadership actions

  • mobilising industry and other stakeholders within the EU to work in partnership and deliver on agreed priorities

  • sharing information and enable knowledge transfer to a wide range of stakeholders across the EU.

    The European Commission does not own or manage European Technology Platforms, which are independent organisations.

Oltre le etp le public private partnership
Oltre le ETP: le Public Private Partnership di Photonics21

Public-private partnerships in Horizon 2020: a powerful tool to deliver on innovation and growth in Europe

These partnerships will be based on a contractual agreement between the Commission and the industry partners, setting out the objectives, commitments, key performance indicators and outputs to be delivered.

Ppps in horizon 2020
PPPs in Horizon 2020 di Photonics21

Contractual public-private partnerships are being considered in the following areas:

  • Factories of the Future

  • Energy-efficient Buildings

  • Green Vehicles

  • Future Internet

  • Sustainable Process Industry

  • Robotics

  • Photonics

  • High Performance Computing

    (evolution from FP7 PPP)

  • A lean Photonics PPP Association becomes the formal contact partner for the EC in a PPP.

  • The EB constitutes the association members.

  • The association will be fully controlled by the Photonics21 BoS.

    • All strategic decisions are taken by the BoS. (The association is only executing.)

    • The BoS ensures that the strategies of the Photonics21 Work Groups and the BoS are implemented in the PPP.

  • Additional change in the Photonics21 Terms of Reference: in future, new BoS members will be elected by the Work Groups.

Impact of a photonics public private partnership
Impact through personal membershipof a Photonics Public Private Partnership

The Photonics Public Private Partnership (PPP)

  • pools public and private resources to provide

  • more effective solutions for major challenges in

  • Europe

  • accelerates Europe’s innovation process and

  • time to market by addressing the full innovation

  • chain in strong photonics market sectors

  • integrates the full value chain into an open

  • innovation approach

  • grows photonics manufacturing in Europe and

  • creates further ‘high skill’ employment

What does change
What does change through personal membership

  • Long-term commitment from Commission to financially support the field in the seven years of Horizon 2020.

  • Long-term commitment by industry to invest in photonics research and innovation during Horizon 2020.

  • Close interaction to reach agreement on content of Horizon 2020 calls. Greater focus on impact on growth and job creation.

  • Demonstration of fulfilment of industry's investment commitment through evidence based monitoring of the PPP performance (by using agreed Key Performance Indicators).

  • Large potential to leverage financing from other sources (such as structural funds, loans from the European Investment Bank, etc.).

What does not change
What does not change through personal membership

  • The participation and financial rules are those of Horizon 2020 and calls for proposals are open to everybody, not just the Photonics PPP Stakeholders.

  • Final responsibility for the drafting of the Horizon 2020 Work Programmes stays with the Commission and is subject to so called "Comitology procedures" (i.e., its agreement with the ICT Programme Committee representing the Member States).

  • Implementation remains with the Commission: selection and negotiation of proposals, project monitoring and payments.
