1 Twinning scheme of Horizon 2020 as a capacity building mechanism for the EUSDR Ralf König FFG-Austrian Research Promotion Agency September 2, 2014 DRRIF Working Group Meeting, Vienna

2 Horizon 2020 Structure

3 Horizon Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation Teaming of excellent research institutions and low performing RDI regions will invest in Europe s research and innovation potential through supporting the creation of new (or upgrading of existing) Centres of Excellence on the basis of partnerships with internationally leading institutions. Twinning of research institutions aims to build on the huge potential of networking for excellence through knowledge transfer and, exchange of best practice between research institutions and leading partners. ERA chairs ERA Chairs will bring outstanding researchers to universities and other research organisations that have high potential for research excellence. COST Policy Support Facility (PSF) Week of Innovative Regions in Europe (WIRE V, WIRE VI) Experts (expert evaluators, experts groups, monitors) SmartLink Strengthening the administrative and operational capacity of transnational networks of National Contact Points

4 Horizon Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation Teaming ~ 270 Mio, 2 calls (2014 and 2018) Twinning ~ 100 Mio., 2 calls (2015 and 2018) ERA chairs ~ 270 Mio., 3 calls (2014, 2017 and 2019)

5 What? Strengthening a defined area of research of a knowledge institution in a low performing Member State or region through linking with at least two internationally-leading counterparts in Europe. How? Proposals: Will have to outline the scientific strategy for stepping up and stimulating scientific excellence and innovation capacity in a defined area of research as well as the scientific quality of the partners involved in the twinning exercise. WHEN? 2 calls: 2015 and 2018 Budget: ~ 100 Mio. EUR

6 Specific challenge is to address networking gaps and deficiencies between the research institutions of the low performing Member States/regions and internationally-leading counterparts at EU level. Driven by the quest for excellence, research intensive institutions tend to collaborate increasingly in closed groups, producing a crowding-out effect for a large number of promising institutions. Scope/Objective Twinning aims at significantly strengthening a defined area of research in a particular knowledge institution (a research active university or a public research organisation or a private non-profit research organisation) by creating a link between this institution and at least two internationally-leading research institutions in other Member States. Twinning will: Enhance the S&T capacity of the linked institutions Help raise staff s research profile as well as the one of the institutions involved

7 Successful Twinning proposals will have to clearly outline the scientific strategy for stepping up and stimulating scientific excellence and innovation capacity in a defined area of research as well as the scientific quality of the partners involved in the twinning exercise; are encouraged to explain how the Twinning activity will contribute to the overall Smart Specialisation (or any other relevant thematic regional/national) Strategy of the specific location of the initiating institution; should include a comprehensive set of measures to be supported.

8 Impact measurable and significant improvement in the overall scientific and innovation capacity of the initiating institution in a particular area of research; linkages with research intensive counterpart institutions in other Member States ; positive impacts on the overall research and innovation potential of the Member State or the region the initiating institution is located in. Improvement could be (e.g.) measured through increased peer-reviewed publications; increased impact factors in terms of citations etc. Impact indicators should reflect an increase in relative terms based on the situation before the project compared to the projected situation immediately after the project is completed, as well as within the foreseeable future after completion. are important for determining the potential regional and national impact, as well as long-term sustainability and viability of the beneficiary organisations.

9 The Partners ONE institution located in a Low Performing EU Member State/Region or Associated Country (COORDINATOR) A minimum of TWO additional partners from two different EU Member States or Associated Countries. Call 2015 Details Call publication: 2 July 2014 Call deadline: 7 May 2015 Call budget: 65,27 Mio. EUR Project budget: 1 Mio. EUR Project duration: 3 years Type of action: Coordination and Support Action

10 Eligible Costs Funding for: short term staff exchanges expert visits and short-term on-site or virtual training workshops conference attendance organisation of joint summer school type activities dissemination and outreach activities Equipment & researchers' salaries will NOT be funded no support to infrastructure and equipment no support for hiring new permanent research staff

11 Eligibility conditions The applicant organisation should be established in a Member State that is ranked below 70% of the EU27 average of the composite indicator on Research Excellence. The selected corrective threshold of 70% of the EU average has been chosen in line with the particular policy requirements of the measure, to ensure the greatest possible impact through targeting only the lowest performing Member States, and thereby maximising the real value of these actions. The following Member States will be eligible to submit proposals: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia The following Associated Countries will be eligible to submit proposals: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey

12 Composite indicator of Research Excellence measures the research excellence in Europe "Research and Innovation Performance in EU Member States and Associated Countries Innovation Union progress at country level" meaning: the effects of European and national policies on the modernization of research institutions the vitality of the research environment and the quality of research outputs in both basic and applied research. The indicator is composed of four variables: the share of highly cited publications in all publications where at least one of the authors has an affiliation in a given country number of top scientific universities and public research organizations in a country divided by million population patent applications per million population total value of ERC grants received divided by public R&D performed by the higher education and government sectors
