Research Infrastructures
Facilities, resources,
organisational
systems and services
that are used by the
research communities
to conduct research
and innovation in
their fields
Policy
Research
and
Innovation
The Knowledge Triangle at Work
To be a genuinely competitive in the knowledge
economy, one must be better:
 in producing knowledge through research
 in diffusing it through education
 in applying it through innovation
Policy

Innovation
Why an EU Approach for
Research Infrastructures?
 To open access to the research infrastructures existing in
the individual Member State to all European researchers
 To avoid duplication of efforts and to coordinate and
rationalise the use of these research infrastructures
 To trigger the exchange of best practice, develop
interoperability of facilities and resources, develop the
training of the next generation of researchers
 To connect national research communities and increase
the overall quality of the research and innovation
 To help pooling resources so that the Union can also
acquire and operate research infrastructures globally
Policy
Research

Innovation
Horizon 2020 is different
 A strong challenge-based approach, allowing applicants to have
considerable freedom to come up with innovative solutions
 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. social sciences, gender,
international cooperation …)

A strategic programming approach
 Work programme preparation based on guidance obtained from a
strategic programming exercise
 To increase impact of the funding, and a more integrated approach
 Work programmes with a 2 year-duration
 Leitmotif of the first work programme is the economic crisis and
the path to sustainable growth - Horizon 2020 can make a
significant contribution to this effort
 'key drivers' (competitiveness innovation and growth, leverage of
industry, access to finance, new knowledge and skills, enabling
technologies…), used to identify areas on which resources and effort
will be focused for maximum impact

Focus Areas
Strategic programming identifies focus areas, each
covered by a specific call, that:
 Bring together activities from different challenges and
enabling technologies
 Provide support across the innovation chain from research, to
development, to proof of concept, piloting, demonstration
projects, and to setting standards and policy frameworks.
 Make use of the full spectrum of funding schemes and types
of action e.g. research and innovation actions, innovation
actions, ERANets, SME instrument…
 Integrate different perspectives, including from the social
sciences and humanities, gender perspectives, and
international strategy

Innovation support measures
This topic comprises:
 the development of an opportunity portal of calls, tenders and future
needs and technology transfer opportunities in RI of pan European
interest;
 the networking of procurement professionals to encourage exchange of
good practices across RI sectors;
 Awareness campaign towards industry on the potential of RIs for their
activities in selected R&D areas
 Pilot action in the field of scientific instrumentation exploiting the
innovation potential of Research Infrastructures using Pre-Commercial
Procurement (PCP) and/or Public Procurement of Innovation (PPI)
schemes.

Strengthening the human capital of
research infrastructures by supporting ..
 training of staff managing and operating RI of pan-European interest,
 exchange of staff and of best practices between facilities,
 adequate supply of human resources in key disciplines, including the
emergence of specific education curricula.
Policy

Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources,
Policy & International Cooperation
Policy measures for research infrastructures comprise:
 Supporting partnerships between relevant policy makers, funding bodies or
advisory groups such as ESFRI & e-IRG, support cooperation and exchange
of good practises between managers of research infrastructures and
stakeholder networks; support survey, monitoring and assessment of the
implementation and operation of research infrastructures.
 Supporting developing a comprehensive database targeted at policy-makers
on research infrastructures of more than national relevance in Europe.
Policy

Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources,
Policy & International Cooperation
International cooperation for research infrastructures aims to:
Facilitate the development of global research infrastructures and the
cooperation of European RI with their non-European counterparts, ensuring
global interoperability and reach, and to pursue international agreements on the
reciprocal use, openness or co-financing of infrastructures.
 Support to GSO activity on global research infrastructures
 Support multilateral cooperation on research infrastructures in one or several
of the following areas: Arctic research, marine science, biodiversity, food
research and medicine. Particular emphasis will be made on cooperation with
USA, Canada (including for implementing the Transatlantic Research Alliance,
launched by the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation) and Russia,
without excluding other relevant countries such as Australia and New Zealand.

Call 4 Support to Innovation, Human Resources,
Policy & International Cooperation
The proposals supporting bilateral and multi-lateral cooperation with research
infrastructures in third countries should in particular:
 Identify and promote opportunities (access and data sharing) available to
European scientists in these research infrastructures;
 Help developing better coordination and cooperation of European research
infrastructures with their non-European counterparts; ensuring their global
interoperability and reach, and to pursue international agreements on the
reciprocal use, openness or co-financing of infrastructures;
Exchange good practices between user communities and managers of
research infrastructures as regard for instance benchmarking performance of
technology platforms, harmonisation of tests, standards, reference materials,
interoperability and data handling.
