Horizon 2020 National Contact Points (www.h2020uk.org)
National Contact Points (NCPs) are publicly funded (many
by the Technology Strategy Board) to provide advice and
assistance to UK participants within specific areas of
Horizon 2020 (H2020)
•All member states have NCPs across Horizon 2020 calls
•UK NCPs are on www.h2020uk.org/national-contact-points
(Full Member State list - search on “NCP Horizon 2020” – or through the
Participant Portal)
National Contact Points – what we do..
• Feedback to/from Commission on work programmes
• Clarification of documentation and rules
• Guidance on choosing thematic priorities and instruments
• Scope queries with Project Officers
• Feedback on proposals
• Assistance in partner search
- through theme specific databases or across the network of other
Member State NCPs
- through network support (Knowledge Transfer Network, Enterprise
Europe Network)
• Some feedback on results..
Horizon 2020 (2014-20) - what’s new?
• Successor to FP7 (2007-13) – EU Collaborative R&D
• ~ €79Bn programme, much of it collaborative
• More innovation: through introduction of ‘close-to-market
actions’ (e.g. prototyping, testing, demonstrating).
• Greater SME involvement - “SME instrument”
• A single set of rules for participation and dissemination - for the
whole innovation chain
• Simplified funding rates for research and innovation projects;
flat rate for indirect costs
• Faster time-to-grant : to be reduced to 8 months (5 + 3)
• Fewer, better targeted controls and audits
Why European R&D Funding?
Through the EU, business can
gain innovation support on a
scale not available within the
UK. This can bring UK
companies new R&D funding,
the chance to collaborate with
other world-class companies
and institutions, and reach into
the world’s largest ‘home’
H2020 participation
Hi-tech SMEs:
Spin outs from universities or firms with hi-tech and knowledge
based products and in-house R&D capability.
Mid-tech SMEs:
With some R&D activity or that which could be stimulated and
leveraged through Horizon 2020.
Academic & Research Organisations:
Experienced organisations in partnering and coordinating
proposals within balanced consortia
Large companies:
With existing R&D activity or that which could be stimulated and
leveraged through Horizon 2020.

Work programme topic structure
Reflects the challenge-based approach - 3 key features:
• Specific Challenge
- sets context, problem to be addressed, why intervention is needed
• Scope
- outlines the problem, specifies the focus and the boundaries of the potential
action BUT without overly describing specific approaches - indication of the
targeted TRLs and of the average EU funding of the expected proposal in
order to suitably address the level of ambition of the topic
• Expected Impact
- describes the key elements of what is expected to be achieved in relation to
the specific challenge
