43 ERC Synergy Grants FP7: ERC Synergy Grants New scheme, pilot call Enables a group of between 2 to 4 excellent PIs (with one corresponding PI ) to pursue a large-scale frontier research project of their choice Team must: bring together complementary skills, knowledge and resources together in new ways, in order to jointly address research problems PIs need to show how working together in their specific configuration would achieve more than could be done separately It is expected (but not required) that in most cases groups will be interdisciplinary, often using multidisciplinary approaches They will also have to demonstrate novel working arrangements to ensure face to face contact for significant periods of core time in the same place over the course of the project.

44 ERC Synergy Grants FP7: ERC Synergy Grants 10% of Annual ERC Call Budget First pilot call: opened 25 October 2011 & closed on 25 January proposals received. Likely success rate ~2-3%! 2 nd pilot call: opens 10 October 2012 & closes on 10 January 2013 Likely to still be very competitive! Grants of up to 15 million over 6 yrs ( 150 million call budget) Further information:

45 Synergy Grants - Objectives ERC Synergy Grants FP7: ERC Synergy Grants are intended to enable a small group of 2-4 PIs and their teams to bring together complementary skills, knowledge, and resources in new ways, in order to jointly address research problems aim to promote substantial advances in the frontiers of knowledge, and to encourage new productive lines of enquiry and new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines The peer review evaluation will therefore look for proposals that demonstrate the synergies, complementarities and added value that could lead to breakthroughs that would not be possible by the individual PIs working alone So, it is about: a unique configuration of PIs who jointly identify and tackle exciting research problems aiming at breakthrough discoveries

46 Synergy Grants - Group Structure With the focus on PIs, ERC Synergy Groups are fundamentally different from that of a network or consortium FP7: ERC Synergy Grants New types of joint effort may be needed perhaps built around specialised infrastructure, or that allow for new combinations of skills and disciplines, or the bringing together of researchers from different institutions, sectors or countries The organisation of such activities will vary widely, depending on the particular needs of the research It is expected that in most cases ERC Synergy groups will be interdisciplinary, often using multidisciplinary approaches, and physically located in the same place to ensure face to face contact for significant periods of "core time" over the course of the project However, any group which can demonstrate the synergies, complementarities and added value that make the whole greater than the sum of the parts in order to promote substantial advances in the frontiers of knowledge will be considered

47 Synergy Grants - PI Location, Profile and Commitment FP7: ERC Synergy Grants PI Location PIs must be based at a Host Institution in an EU Member State or Associated Country during the grant PIs Profile Excellent researchers, with track records of independent creative thinking, regardless of career stage Innovative and active PI Commitment PIs should be committed to the group project and willing to have face to face contact (with other PIs) for significant periods of core time they will be expected to devote at least 30% of their total working time to the ERC-funded project and spend at least 50% of their total working time in an EU Member State or Associated Country)

48 Funding Levels and Duration of Grant Synergy Grants may be Up to 15 million over 6 years ERC contribution (or pro-rata for shorter projects) The total requested grant should reflect a realistic estimation of the project needs and should not be unnecessarily inflated to reach the maximum grant level Limits includes direct and indirect costs! Direct Costs 100% of eligible and approved direct costs funded Indirect Costs: 20% flat rate (of the total direct costs excluding subcontracting and third party resources not used on premises) Is allocated and charged (for all institutions no proof needed of how spent)

49 49 Proof of Concept scheme

50 ERC Grant Schemes - Proof of Concept ERC Proof of Concept Supports an existing ERC grant-holder in preparing a "package" to be presented to venture capitalists or companies that might invest in the results of new knowledge developed during an ERC-funded project, in order to take it through the early commercialisation phase Funds activities for establishing the innovation potential of an idea: i.e. technical validation, market research, clarifying an IPR strategy, investigating business opportunities Evaluation criteria: Innovation Potential, Quality of the Proof of Concept Plan, Budget Deadlines: 24 April 2013, 3 October 2013 Maximum grant: 150,000 (call budget: 10 million) Further information at:

54 Horizon overview

55 Development of Horizon 2020 Proposed Horizon 2020 Structure Excellent Science Base European Research Council (ERC) Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Marie Curie Actions Research Infrastructures Industrial Leadership and Competitive Frameworks Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies: ICT; Nanotechnologies; Advanced Materials; Biotechnology; Advanced Manufacturing and Processing; and Space Access to risk finance Innovation in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) Tackling Societal Challenges Health, demographics changes and well being Food security, sustainable agriculture marine and maritime research and the bio-economy Secure, clean and efficient energy Smart, green and integrated transport Climate action and resource efficiency including raw materials Inclusive, innovative and secure societies European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Joint Research Centre (JRC) Euratom ( )

56 Excellent Science - ERC Horizon 2020 Continuity with FP7. 77% increase in funding. Will continue: to operate autonomously led by a Scientific Council 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 Scope for continuation of 4 current schemes and flexibility to develop the mix of support measures to respond to emerging needs

57 Horizon 2020 Reimbursement Rates Development of Horizon 2020 Eligible Direct Costs: 100% reimbursement Eligible Indirect Costs: 20% flat rate (of eligible direct costs) Applies equally to all types of partner Possibilities of deviation for some programmes (e.g. Marie Curie) No real indirect costs option Likely to be subject of debate during co-decision process
