Horizon 2020
The Framework Programme for Research and
Innovation 2014-2020
Fundamental
Research
Pillar 1: technological research
Pillar 2: Product demonstration
Horizon 2020 (TRL 1 – 8)
European Regional Development Fund (TRL 2 – 9)
European Investment Bank (TRL 2 – 9)
Pillar 3:
Competitive Manufacturing
Horizon 2020
Basics
• A single programme bringing together three separate
programmes/initiatives (FP/CIP/EIT)
• Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms
of innovation (integration of the innovation dimension)
• Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean
energy and transport
• Additional emphasis on Public-Private-Partnerships and PublicPublic-Partnerships
• New approaches to SME support
Europe 2020 priorities
Shared objectives and principles
European Research Area
International cooperation
Tackling Societal Challenges
• Health, demographic change and wellbeing
• Food security, sustainable agriculture and
forestry, marine, maritime and inland water
research and the bio-economy
• Secure, clean and efficient energy
• Smart, green and integrated transport
• Climate action, environment, resource
efficiency and raw materials
• Europe in a changing world - Inclusive,
innovative and reflective societies
• Secure societies – Protecting
freedom and security of Europe
and its citizens
Creating Industrial Leadership and
Competitive Frameworks
• Leadership in enabling and industrial
technologies
• Information and communication
technologies
• Nanotechnologies, advanced
materials, advanced manufacturing
and processing and biotechnology
• Space
• Access to risk finance
• Innovation in SMEs
Excellence in the Science Base
• European Research Council
• Future and Emerging Technologies
• Marie Slodowska-Curie actions
• European research infrastructures,
including e-Infrastructures

Horizon 2020 vs. TRL
(Technology Readiness Level)
7
Horizon 2020 is different
• a strong challenge-based approach
• simplified list of possible types of action (e.g. research
and innovation – 100%; innovation actions – 70%)
• less prescription, strong emphasis on expected impact
• broader topics
• cross-cutting issues mainstreamed (e.g. ICT, social
sciences, gender)
8
Horizon 2020 and partnering (I)
Public-Public Partnerships (P2Ps):
• Through “ERA-Nets” for topping up individual calls/ actions (replacing
current ERA-Net, ERA-Net Plus, Inco-Net, Inno-net)
• Through participation in joint programs between Member States (art
185, e.g. EUROSTARS, AAL)
• Supporting agendas of Joint Programming Initiatives when in line
with Horizon 2020, e.g. JP Neurodegeneratieve Aandoeningen, JP
Urban Europe
• Only when criteria met, e.g. financial commitments of participating
countries
• “Smart specialisation”
9
Horizon 2020 and partnering (II)
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs):
• Through Joint Technology Initiatives (JTI) or other formal structures
(art 187.), e.g. Artemis/Eniac,
• Via contractual arrangements, which provide inputs for work
programmes
• Only when criteria met, e.g. clear commitments from private
partners
European Innovation Partnerships
• Not funding instruments, but for coordination with broader policies
and programmes
Rules of participation: simplification
A single set of rules:
• adapted for the whole research and innovation cycle
• aligned to the Financial Regulation, coherent with other new EU
Programmes
Simpler rules for grants:
• broader acceptance of participants accounting practices for direct
costs,
• flat rate for indirect costs,
Fewer, better targeted controls and audits:
• audit strategy focused on risk and fraud prevention
• new balance between trust and control
11
Conditions for participation
Minimum conditions
 Standard collaborative actions:
At least 3 legal entities established in different MS or
AC
 ERC, SME instrument, programme Co-Fund,
coordination & support, training & mobility
actions:
One legal entity established in MS or AC
Additional conditions
 In the work programme or work plan
12
Evaluation of proposals
Standard criteria
 Excellence
 Impact
 Quality & efficiency of the action
 ERC frontier research actions: only “Excellence”
 Innovation actions: higher weighting for “Impact”
13
Time to grant: speeding up the process
A maximum of TTG of 8 months
 5 months for informing all applicants on scientific
evaluation
 3 months for signature of GA (Grant Agreement)
How to speed up the process
 No more negotiations: each proposal evaluated
‘as it is’ and not as ‘what could be’
 Legal entity validated in parallel
 No more paper
