1 PMC Agenda Item No. 7 European Funding Programmes in Hertfordshire European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) The European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) are the EU s main funding programmes for supporting growth and jobs across the EU. In the UK, the ESIF are made up of the: European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) European Social Fund (ESF) European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) not applicable to Herts Hertfordshire Investment Strategy In order to determine how funding should be allocated Herts LEP has developed the ESIF Hertfordshire Investment Strategy. Under the strategy the identified themes for investment in Hertfordshire are set out below. The strategy is owned by a LEP Area ESIF Committee which has representation from both local and national stakeholders and is chaired by Tony Jackson Managing Authorities Responsibility for managing the delivery of funding within England currently rests with Managing Authorities; there is one for each fund. Each Managing Authority produces an operational programme which contains further detail on what the fund will support, and how we will provide, manage and assess funding. In England the Managing Authorities are: Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) for ERDF Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) for ESF Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for EAFRD The LEP Area ESIF Committee is responsible for producing the EU Structural Investment Strategy for their area and advising the Managing Authorities about the appropriateness and suitability of projects. The Managing Authorities have ultimate responsibility for the letting of contracts for ESIF projects and for the performance management of those contracts. The Managing Authority will provide feedback re contract performance to the LEP Area ESIF Committee 1

The definition of a rural area is based on the 2011 Rural-Urban classification developed by the ONS m Horizon 2020 is the EU Research and Innovation programme with nearly 80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It encourages breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking ideas from the lab to the market. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness. By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 places the emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation. The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation will be complemented by further measures to complete and further develop the European Research Area. These measures will aim at breaking down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation. Work Programme Funding opportunities under Horizon 2020 are set out in multiannual work programmes, which cover the large majority of support available. The work programmes are prepared by the European Commission within the framework provided by the Horizon 2020 legislation and through a strategic programming process integrating EU policy objectives in the priority setting. The preparation of work programmes involves the consultation of stakeholders. For this purpose 19 Horizon 2020 Advisory Groups have been set up as consultative bodies representing the broad constituency of stakeholders ranging from industry and research to representatives of civil society. 3

4 H2020 Work Programme H2020 Work Programme Life The current main Horizon 2020 work programme comprises 18 thematic sections and the general annexes describing general rules such as standard admissibility conditions and eligibility criteria, types of action, selection and award criteria, etc. Each thematic section is self-contained, and describes the overall objectives, the respective calls for proposals, and the topics within each call. This Horizon 2020 work programme is complemented by the separate work programmes for the European Research Council, Euratom, the Joint Research Centre and the Strategic Innovation Agenda for the European Institute of Innovation and technology (EIT). The work programmes are currently under preparation, and may include the following topics: Future and Emerging Technologies Information and Communication Technologies Societal Challenge 1 (Health, demographic change and wellbeing) Societal Challenge 2 (Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy) Societal Challenge 4 (Smart, Green and Integrated Transport) Societal Challenge 5 (Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials) Innovation in SMEs Access to Risk Finance 80b The LIFE programme is the EU s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value. LIFE began in 1992 and to date there have been four complete phases of the programme (LIFE I: , LIFE II: , LIFE III: and LIFE+: ). During this period, LIFE has co-financed some 3954 projects across the EU, contributing approximately 3.1 billion to the protection of the environment. The Environment strand of the new programme covers three priority areas: Environment and resource efficiency; Nature and biodiversity; and Environmental governance and information. The Climate Action strand covers: Climate change mitigation; Climate change adaptation; and Climate governance and information. 2.6b for ENV 0.86b for CLIMA 4
