Horizon 2020 – Cross-cutting aspects
Cross-cutting aspects
•
Aim to widen participation across whole programme to ensure excellence
prevails wherever it exists
•
Simplification as a crucial element
•
More bottom-up elements to allow for novel ideas
•
Package of measures to close innovation divide
•
Links to Cohesion policy = building regional research & innovation
capacity
•
Boosting support to European Research Area (ERA) priorities – mobility,
researcher careers, infrastructures, partnering, knowledge transfer, policy
learning
•
Taking account of gender, ethical issues and open access to results
Horizon 2020 – Rules of Participation
Horizon 2020
- Rules for Participation
•
Single set of rules: for everyone (academia & industry)
•
One Project – One Funding Rate
•
Maximum of 100% of direct costs for all types of partners (except for actions close to
market, where a 70% max)
•
Indirect eligible costs: a flat rate of 20% of direct eligible costs
•
No real indirect cost option
•
Simple Evaluation Criteria: excellence, implementation, impact
•
New Forms of funding for innovation: including dedicated SME funding instrument
•
Improved rules on Intellectual Property: including new emphasis on Open Access
•
Simplification: including no time-sheets for personnel working full time on a grant
•
Fewer, more targeted controls and audits: audit strategy focused on risk and fraud
prevention
Horizon 2020 – Cross-cutting aspects
International co-operation
• Instruments:
•
•
Targeted actions on basis of common interest and mutual
benefit
Horizontal activities to promote strategy development of
international co-operation (‘Inclusive, innovative & secure
societies’)
• Who is likely to receive funding?
