What is FP7?
FP7 is the EU funding programme
for research and technological development
• 7-year programme (2007 -2013)
• New Calls for Proposals each year
• Total budget of €50 521 million
• Structured into four main ‘Specific Programmes’
FP7 Overview
• Main EU-level tool for meeting ‘European Research Area’ objectives
• Aims to build the ‘knowledge triangle’ (research, innovation, education)
• Designed to complement activities in EU Member States, as well as other
EU policies
•
•
•
•

FP7: Application Process
http://www.ukro.ac.uk
General Trends to Expect until 2013
Innovation Union priorities
ERC - Introduction
• Future FP7 calls will reflect Innovation Union priorities
• Likely to see more topics which lay the basis for innovation
• Examples: Eco-innovation call in Environment, ERC Proof of
Concept, Demonstration in Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Involving industry
• More topics which specify that SMEs must be involved
• For example, topics in FAFB theme with minimum budget to SMEs
• Also a focus on dissemination and communication of results
Higher budget
• FP7 budget structured to increase in 2012 and 2013
• Likely to see more proposals submitted, but more funded as well
• Effect of national funding situation on both application numbers
and budget?

FP7 Co-operation - SSH
SSH Approach for 2010-2013
New approach:
• Identifies important Societal Challenges for the EU
to be addressed by specific set of research actions
• Work Programmes will still include some topics to be
addressed by smaller collaborative projects and CSA
But:
Main funding scheme to be used = Collaborative Projects
(Large Scale Integrating Research Projects)
• Four to five years in duration
• Minimum EC contribution = € 5,500,000 (note –
less than in previous calls)
• At least 7 partners from 7 MS/ACs
SSH 2012 call
FP7 Co-operation - SSH
• Based on four priorities
• Innovation Union in support of smart growth
• Inclusive and sustainable growth
• Reshaping the European economy & strengthening the political
unity of the EU
• Support for developing the external policies of the EU
• Two calls:
• one for large-scale projects (FP7-SSH-2012-1): €39 million
• one for small-medium-scale projects and CSAs (FP7-SSH-20122): €48 million - maximum funding limits in WP for all topics
• Funding allows for one project per large-scale challenge,
one-two per topic
• Deadline for both calls = 2 February 2012
2012 – Societal Challenges
FP7 Co-operation - SSH
Education systems in the 21st century
Governance of cohesion and diversity in urban contexts
Making longevity an asset for economic and social
development
Families in transitions
Human rights in the EU external relations and internal

Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Policy Background
• SMEs at heart of European industry and the Europe 2020
Strategy
• Playing an increasingly important role in a globalised
economy
• Key component in turning knowledge into products,
processes and services
• EU Member States have their own support actions for
SMEs - EU level actions are necessary to complement
and enhance these
FP7 Capacities
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
• Objective is to provide financial support to SMEs or SME
associations to outsource R & D, with a view to acquiring
IPR, and preferably ownership, of the project results
• Strengthens innovation capacity of SMEs
• Supports SMEs or SME associations in need of
outsourcing research to RTD performers (including
universities and research centres)
• Support given through 3 main calls:
• Research for SMEs
• Research for SME associations
• Demonstration action
FP7 Capacities
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Specific activities
For 2012, three main SME-specific schemes will be
implemented:
Activity 2.1 - Research for SMEs
• Supports small groups of innovative SMEs to solve
common/ complimentary technological problems
• Short-term projects centred on innovation needs of SMEs
• Must demonstrate clear exploitation potential for SMEs
FP7 Capacities
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Specific activities (continued)
Activity 2.2 - Research for SME Associations
• Helps to develop techncal solutions to common problems
• Focus on specific industrial sectors or segments of the
value chain
• Covers areas such as conforming to EU norms, standards
and regulatory requirements
• Project duration of several years
• Must also involve a number of individual SMEs
FP7 Capacities
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
Specific activities (continued)
Activity 2.3 - Demonstration action (piloted in 2011 call)
• To support projects which enable SMEs to carry out
demonstration activities before a product enters the
market
• Activities can include: testing of product-like prototypes,
implementation of new technical solutions or market
studies/business plans
• SME must take the lead within the consortium
• Project duration foreseen to be 1.5 to 2 years
• In 2012 call, this is only open to SMEs/SME Associations
which have previously participated in successful projects
FP7 Capacities
Research for the Benefit of SMEs
2012 Call
Participation requirements:
• At least 3 participants must be independent SMEs
established in at least 3 EU Member States or FP7
Associated Countries
• At least 2 participants must be RTD performers
independent from any other participant
• Other legal entities, such as other enterprises or endusers that make a particular contribution to the project
and to solving specific problems or needs of SMEs may
participate, though not in a dominant role
FP7: Finances
http://www.ukro.ac.uk
FP Finances – Key Principles
• Co-financing principle:
FP7 Financial Issues
• Usually based on reimbursement of direct and indirect costs
• Lump sums or flat rates in certain actions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Balancing EC and own contribution
No need for ‘hard cash’ own contribution
No profit
No commercial activities
Different project types/funding schemes
EC principles of eligible costs and non-eligible costs
Remember that fEC is not the same as full reimbursement
