 'Innovation Actions' (funded at 70%)are definned
in the Horizon 2020 Rules for Participation:
 'Innovation action' means an action primarily consisting of
activities directly aiming at producing plans and
arrangements or designs for new, altered or improved
products, processes or services. For this purpose they may
include prototyping, testing, demonstrating, piloting, largescale product validation and market replication
Basic and
applied
research
Technology
Establishing technical
development
feasibility in lab or
and integration simulated environment
Establishing technical and economic viability
in (near to) operational environment
Decision by producers to
validate in (near to)
operational environment
Supporting first application in
the market to confirm user
benefits (only in specific
market contexts)
Decision by producers/users to
commercialise/buy – if no market
failures/barriers to uptake
Wide market

but limited innovation activities

per year
Criterion of impact given a higher weighting
≤5 legal entities shall participate in an action
Amount of grant ≤€3 million

PCP - Pre-Commercial Procurement
PPI – Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions
• When to use PCP:
– Challenge requires R&D to get new solutions developed. Problem
clear, but pros / cons of several potential competing solutions not
compared / validated yet. No commitment to deploy (PPI) yet.
• When to use PPI
– Challenge requires solution which is almost on the market or
already on the market in small quantity but not meeting public
sector requirements for large scale deployment yet. No R&D
involved (R&D already done, or no R&D needed to solve problem)
PCP and PPI
complementary
•
•
PCP to steer the development of solutions towards concrete public
sector needs, whilst comparing/validating alternative solution
approaches from various vendors
PPI to act as launching customer / early adopter / first buyer of
innovative commercial end-solutions newly arriving on the market

 Support to innovation procurement
 8 areas topping-up call budgets for PCP/PPI
 9 networks of public procurers
 Baseline? - €94 million in FP7 and CIP WP13
 Inducement prizes
 In Health, Energy, ICT and NMP: currently €11 million budgeted
 Indications to add prizes in Food, Transport and Climate
 CSAs to prepare market uptake
 1-2 such CSAs in almost all areas: exploitation services,
assessments of market barriers, awareness and promotion…
 Support to EIP agendas
 Selected parts of EIP agendas supported under relevant Societal
Challenges: large scale demos, R&I, brokering…
 Social innovation: central to number of Societal Challenge topics

Horizon 2020
(+ COSME another EU programme support financial instruments for SMEs)
• Equity instrument for SMEs’ R&I and growth
Equity Facility for R&I (H2020)
Equity Facility for Growth (COSME)
• Debt instrument for SMEs’ R&I and growth
SMEs & Small Midcaps Guarantee Facility for R&I (H2020)
Loan Guarantee Facility (COSME)
• Debt instrument
for larger midcaps, large corporates, research bodies, etc

Accompanying measures
• Investment-readiness schemes (including coaching,
mentoring, etc)
• Detecting and monitoring high growth SME profiles
• Raising awareness of VC firms and business angels
• Fostering business angels (deal volumes now comparable to
VC!), crowd-funding, family offices etc…
• Technical assistance for financial intermediaries
• (Large Scale) Experimental Facilities  FIRE

How can FIRE help you?
 You are an innovator or entrepreneur or SME with
beta technology or innovative technology but
not fully tested.
 Your innovative technology relates to internet
(from networking protocols, IoT to content
centric networking).
 You need an experimental facility for validating
your innovative research and developments on
large scale or real conditions.
 FIRE can help you in giving you access to such
facilities.
