6 M arie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Work Programme.. Ensure excellent and innovative research training as well as attractive career and knowledge-exchange opportunities through cross-border and cross-sector mobility of researchers to best prepare them to face current and future societal challenges. Have a structuring effect on the European Research Area through trans-national and intersectoral mobility to create a European labour market for researchers Strengthen human potential by: Encouraging people to become researchers Encouraging researchers to carry out their research in Europe

7 M arie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Operates on a bottom-up basis For any research and innovation ideas (basic research; market take-up) Mobility (cross-border and cross-sector) is a key requirement Enhance skills of people behind research and innovation Strong participation across sectors Dissemination and public engagement - public outreach Gender balance equal opportunities in the research content

8 M arie Skłodowska-Curie Actions For institutions Run and take part in collaborative cross-border, crosssector research, researcher training and/or staff exchange programmes on a research topic and field of their choice Employ talented, well-funded researchers in any research field For individuals Well-remunerated 1-3 year research fellowships in the best research facilities in their field in Europe and overseas PhD studies in the context of a pan-european research training network Exposure to work in the non-academic sector

9 M arie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks (ITN) For Early Stage Researchers Individual Fellowships (IF) For Experienced Researchers Research and Support Staff Exchange (RISE) Exchange visits (secondments) of staff Co-funding of programmes (COFUND) For regional, national, international doctoral or fellowship programmes

31 Research and I nnovation Staff Exchange (RI SE)

32 Aim to promote international and inter-sector collaboration through research and innovation staff exchanges, and sharing of knowledge and ideas from research to market (and vice-versa) for the advancement of science and development of innovation Should involve institutions from the academic and non-academic sectors (particularly SMEs) based in MS/AC and/or third countries Development of partnerships in the form of joint research and innovation activities between the participants Knowledge sharing via international and/or inter-sector mobility through two way secondments of staff with built-in return mechanism no recruitment of new staff! Exchanges between MS/AC only: secondments must be inter-sectoral Exchanges between MS/AC and third countries: secondments can be same sector and/or intersectoral

33 Eligible staff for RI SE secondments Early-Stage Researchers (ESR), Experienced Researchers (ER) & managerial, technical, administrative staff supporting the research and innovation activities of the project Have been actively engaged in or linked to research and/or innovation activities at the sending institution for at least 1 month (full-time equivalent) prior to the first period of secondment New After the secondment period(s), the exchanged staff members should be reintegrated again into the sending organisation

34 Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Participants must be from at least three different countries, at least two of which are MS/AC If all participants in same sector one participant country must be a third country Secondment period 1-12 months (does not need to be continuous) Projects up to 4 years and max 540 exchange visit months Typical activities in RISE: Workshops Joint R&I Networking Knowledge exchange New skills Conferences

37 COFUN D Aims at stimulating regional, national or international programmes to foster excellence in researchers training, mobility and career development, spreading the best practices of MSCA Supports new or existing programmes for international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary research training and transnational and cross-sector mobility of researchers Two streams Doctoral programmes Fellowship programmes

38 COFUND M odes Doctoral programmes Supports ESRs Doctoral enrolment mandatory Training and secondment opportunities with partners, particularly the nonacademic sector will be advantageous Fellowship programmes Supports ERs Not open to permanent employees of the host organisation Regular selection rounds allowing fair competition Cross-sectoral mobility encouraged

39 COFUN D Standard unit costs - fixed amounts per researcher /year MSCA contribution to COFUND only to be used as contribution to the management of the programme and to the living allowance of the researchers Other costs (research costs, travel and mobility allowances, overheads) to be funded from institution s own resources or other EU programmes Maximum EU contribution to single legal entity per call = EUR10M Must comply with the MSCA mobility rule Programmes of months All researchers should be covered by full social security Compliance with the Charter and Code

40 M arie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Researchers Night Coordination and support action Europe-wide public and media event dedicated to the promotion of science and research careers Call published every two years

41 Researchers Night Aims to bring the researchers closer to the public at large and to increase public awareness of the research and innovation activities European Researchers Night takes place on the last Friday of September annually Events can start on early Friday afternoon and last until early Saturday morning Participants can be any legal entity in MS/AC and/or a partnership at regional, national or international level Funding will cover two editions of the Night (2016 and 2017) and a project of 12 months may be considered

42 Commission contributions Scheme Researcher unit cost [person/month] Euros Living allowance* Mobility allowance Family allowance Research, training and networking costs Institutional unit cost [person/month] Euros Management and overheads ITN IF RISE COFUND ESRs 1935 ERs * A correction co-efficient will apply to these costs, e.g. UK % (see MSCA Work Programme table 4) For COFUND: Unit costs are subject to a co-funding rate of 50% as established in the grant agreement. Unit costs are reduced by 50% in case researchers are recruited under fixed-amount fellowships.

43 MSCA What s New? Living allowance rates increased by 5% for all actions Secondments of 6 months or less with mobility must be financed by Research, Training and Networking costs in to prevent an unreasonable financial burden for the ESRs Introduction of additional disability allowance open to all MSCA schemes (available from 2019). Correction coefficients updated, the UK s is now % from 120.3% 'Widening Fellowships' implemented through 'Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation submitted to Individual Fellowships, but budget from SEWP. The definition of a long-term resident for the purposes of the Global Fellowships and RI panel has been updated to allow for more flexibility. Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) staff member must now only have spent 1 month at sending institution before secondment (previously 6 months). Flexibility to spend reasonable amount of time lecturing, tutoring, supervising students, and following training in order to perform such tasks.

44 MSCA What s New? Individual Fellows may work part-time for professional reasons Global Fellowships optional 3 months at EU/AC host before outgoing phase. Career Restart panel (CAR) relaxed - applicants must now not have been active in research for a continuous period of 12 months within the 18 months before. CAR projects can now apply for up to 36 months of funding. EJD requirement to ensure at least 2/3 of researchers are enrolled in a joint, double or multiple degree within Europe, i.e. between 2+ organisations established in EU MS or AC. EJD template for letter of commitment now available (Annex 6) EID relaxed international requirement for inter-sectoral secondments (20% must be international)

46 European Research Council

47 What is the ERC? The fundamental activity of the ERC is to provide attractive, longterm funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground-breaking, high-gain/high-risk research. Scientific excellence is the sole criterion on the basis of which ERC frontier research grants are awarded. The ERC s frontier research grants operate on a bottom-up basis without predetermined priorities. ERC Work Programme 2018 text

48 ERC Budget in Horizon 2020 Other Excellent Science 15% Industrial leadership 22% ERC 17% JRC 3% EIT and other 5% Societal challenges 38% ERC allocated around 12.7 billion for Horizon 2020 (~ 60% increase in real terms compared to FP7). Largest amount of funding will go to the Starting Grants and Consolidator Grants schemes. Source: ERC
