What is Horizon 2020?
• The biggest EU Research and Innovation programme
ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7
years (2014 to 2020)
• Emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership
and tackling societal challenges
• The goal is to ensure Europe
–produces world-class science,
–removes barriers to innovation
–makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work
together in delivering innovation.
What is a National Contact Point?
• Help, support, advise, guide, any potential participant
thinking about or proposing to participate in Horizon
2020
• Support the UK delegation to the Programme
Committee to shape the future work programme
• Team of UK based individuals to support particular
areas e.g. Transport
• Register for updates at www.H2020UK.org
Smart, Green and Integrated Transport
• Smart, Green and Integrated Transport is one of the Societal
Challenges addressed in Horizon 2020.
• The specific objective is “to achieve a European transport system
that is resource-efficient, climate- and environmentally-friendly,
safe and seamless for the benefits of all citizens, the economy and
society”
• The programme is structured into broad lines of activities:
– Resource efficient transport that respects the environment
– Better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security
– Global Leadership for the European transport industry
– Socio-economic and behavioural research and forward looking activities
for policy making

• Full definitions are available
• (only Excellence and Impact assessed in the first stage
of two stage proposals)
Finding Partners
• Enterprise Europe Network – find your local office at
http://enterprise-europe.net/
• The Transport Research and Innovation Portal (TRIP)
http://www.transport-research.info/web/ contains the
details of all organisations that have won and undertaken
transport research programmes in Europe. Therefore a
positive track record of success more likely
• Official EU partner search website
https://cordis.europa.eu/partners/web/guest/home allows
organisations to register that they are seeking partners and
in what area, however, you will find that many
organisations register themselves for every area.
Practicalities
• Register yourself and your organisation on the
Participant Portal
• Videos from the Commission on Youtube
–General Overview: A three-minute animation which gives
a general overview of the programme aimed to potential
new participants.
–How to apply: This short animation guides through the
steps needed to apply to Horizon 2020 and directs the
viewer to the Participant Portal for further information.
Sources of help
• Use all of the available resources
–National Contact Point, willing to read through draft
proposals if sent early enough
–Download all of the documents relating to a topic, not
just the topic description
–Read the General Annexes
–Guidance given to evaluators is useful – explains what
they’re looking for (it’s only 8 pages and is well worth
reading)
PAY ATTENTION TO IMPACT!
