Potential European Funding Opportunities Ian Pennington

Presentation Overview: 

Presentation Overview The FrameWork Programme 2006 ~ 2013 FW 7 ~ main areas of research Researcher mobility ~ Marie Curie Potential non-FrameWork funding sources

Lisbon Objectives: 

Lisbon Objectives S&T contributes to the Lisbon objectives: economic growth, employment creation, environmental protection, social challenges: fight poverty, improve human health and quality of life

FrameWork 7: 

FrameWork 7 EU programme for scientific Research, Technology & Development (RTD) projects Pooling and leveraging resources to achieve critical mass Fostering human capacity and excellence in S&T Stimulate training and international mobility of researchers Improve S&T capabilities Stimulate competition in research Better integration of European R&D Create scientific base for pan-European policy challenges Encourage coordination of national policies Effective comparative research at EU-level Efficient dissemination of research results It involves: Contract research Prioritised research areas

Areas of EU Interest: 

Areas of EU Interest Cooperation – collaborative research €44 Bn Ideas – ERC frontier research €11 Bn People – Marie Curie €7 Bn Capacities - €358 M This will be achieved by Basic research ~ €1.5 Bn per year Doubling the budget from €5 Bn €10 Bn


Cooperation Health Food, agriculture and biotechnology Information and communication technologies Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production processes Energy Environment including climate change Transport including aeronautics Socio-economic sciences and humanities Security and space


1. Health Biotechnology, generic tools & technologies for human health Translating research for human health Optimising the delivery of healthcare to EU citizens


2. Food, Agriculture & Biotechnology Sustainable production, management of biological resources from land, forest and aquatic environments Farm to fork; Food, health and well being Life sciences and biotechnology for sustainable non-food products and processes


3. Information and Communication Technologies ICT Technology Pillars Integration of Technologies Applications Research Future & Emerging Technologies


4. Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials, New Production Technologies Nanosciences and nanotechnologies Materials New production processes Integration of technologies for industrial applications


5. Energy Hydrogen & fuel cells Renewable electricity generation Renewable fuel production Renewables for heating and cooling CO2 capture and storage for zero emission power generation Clean coal Smart energy networks Energy efficiency and savings Knowledge for energy policy making


6. Environment Climate change Sustainable management of resources Environmental technologies Earth observation and assessment tools


7. Transport Aeronautics and air transport Surface transport European GPS system


8. Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities Growth, employment, competitiveness Combining economic, social and environmental objectives in a European perspective Major trends in society and their implications Europe in the world The citizen in the EU Socio-economic and scientific indicators Foresight activities

9. Security & Space: 

9. Security & Space Protection against terrorism and crime Security of infrastructures Border security Restoring security in a crisis Security systems integration Security and society Security research coordination Space based applications Exploration of space RTD for strengthening space foundations


People Initial training of researchers ~ RTNs, ESTs Life-long training and career development ~ individual fellowships/regional/national/ international programmes Industry-academia partnerships International ~ incoming/outgoing international fellowships, international cooperation scheme, reintegration grants Excellence awards


Capacities Research infrastructure Research for the benefit of SMEs Regions of knowledge Research potential Science in society Activities of international cooperation

Application Procedure: 

Application Procedure Register an interest Application submitted on-line as two stage submission Part A ~ set of forms for administrative information about the proposal and consortium Part B ~ Free text description of project under a series of headings and evaluation criteria First stage assessment and approval Submission of full application Contract negotiation Start date and funding issued

Non-FrameWork Funding: 

Non-FrameWork Funding Many forms of funding available Interreg III, AsiaLink, Intas Project areas can be very geographically focused Mediterranean, Far East, Latin America, Former Russian Empire Project types can be very wide ranging
