Horizon 2020: What

s new

• A single programme bringing together three separate programmes/initiatives: the 7th research Framework Programme (FP7), innovation aspects of Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), EU contribution to the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) • More innovation, from research to retail, all forms of innovation • Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport • Simplification: new simplified rules of participation with a reduced number of funding schemes.

Horizon 2020

Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy The specific objective is to secure sufficient supplies of safe and high quality food and other bio-based products, by developing productive and resource efficient primary production systems, fostering related ecosystem services, along side competitive and low carbon supply chains. This will accelerate the transition to a sustainable European bio economy

Broad lines of activities:

• Sustainable agriculture and forestry • Sustainable and competitive agri-food sector for a safe and healthy diet • Unlocking the potential of aquatic living resources • Sustainable and competitive bio-based industries

Horizon 2020

Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy Sustainable agriculture and forestry: «The aim is to supply sufficient food, feed, biomass and other raw-materials, while safeguarding natural resources and enhancing ecosystems services, including coping with and mitigating climate change. The activities shall focus on more sustainable and productive agriculture and forestry systems which are both resource-efficient (including low-carbon) and resilient, while at the same time developing of services, concepts and policies for thriving rural livelihoods »

Horizon 2020

Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy

Sustainable agriculture and forestry

: 1. Increasing production efficiency and coping with climate change, while ensuring sustainability and resilience 2. Providing ecosystem services and public goods 3. Empowerment of rural areas, support to policies and rural innovation

Horizon 2020

Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime resources & the bioeconomy

Unlocking the potential of aquatic living resources

1. Developing sustainable and environmentally- friendly fisheries 2. Developing competitive European aquaculture 3. Boosting marine innovation through biotechnology

The Bioeconomy

Promotes sustainable production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into food, bio-based products, biofuels and bioenergy while preserving the environment and ecosystem services;

Encompasses the sectors of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, food and pulp and paper, as well as parts of the chemical, biotechnological and energy industries; Provides and protects public goods, such as clean air and water, fertile and functioning soils, landscapes, sustainable marine ecosystems and biodiversity; Applies a wide array of sciences (e.g. life sciences, agronomy, ecology, forestry-, fisheries- and social sciences) and enabling and industrial technologies (e.g. biotechnology, nanotechnology and ICT) with local and tacit knowledge; Contributes to address major societal challenges (e.g. food security, climate change, limited natural resources), economic growth and job creation.

European Strategy and Action Plan Innovating for Sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe

Challenges identified - Ensuring food security - Managing natural resources sustainably - Reducing dependency on non-renewable resources - Mitigating and adapting to climate change - Creating jobs and maintaining European competitiveness Objectives - Pave the way to a more innovative, resource efficient and competitive society that reconciles food security with the sustainable use of renewable resources, while ensuring environmental protection.

- Contribute to a more coherent policy environment and better interrelations between national, EU and global bioeconomy policies - Seek synergies and respect complementarities with other policy areas, instruments and funding sources

European Strategy and Action Plan Innovating for Sustainable Growth: A Bioeconomy for Europe


    Ensure substantial EU and national funding for bioeconomy and innovation Increase the share of multi-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research and innovation Promote the uptake and diffusion of innovation in bioeconomy sectors; create feedback mechanisms on regulation and policy Build the human capacity required to support growth and integration of bioeconomy sectors EU Institutions   


 Create a Bioeconomy Panel to enhancing synergies and coherence between policies; foster participation of researchers, end-users, policy- makers and civil society Establish a Bioeconomy Observatory and develop forward-looking and modelling tools Support the development of regional and national bioeconomy strategies Develop international cooperation to jointly address global challenges ( security, climate) Member States Stakeholders International organisations


    Provide the knowledge-base for sustainable intensification of primary production; Promote the setting up of networks for integrated and diversified biorefineries; establish a PPP for bio-based industries Support expansion of new markets; facilitate green procurement for bio-based products Develop science-based approaches to inform consumers about product properties

Horizon 2020 and partnering

• • • • • • • • • • •

Public private partnerships:

Through Joint Technology Initiatives or other formal structures (Art. 187) Through contractual agreements, which provide inputs for work programmes Only when criteria met, e.g. clear commitments from private partners

Public public partnerships:

Through “ERA Nets” for topping up individual calls/ actions (replacing current ERA Net, ERA-Net Plus, Inco-Net, Inno-net) Through participation in joint programmes between Member States (Art. 185) Supporting agendas of Joint Programming Initiatives when in line with Horizon 2020 Only when criteria met, e.g. financial commitments of participating countries

European Innovation Partnerships

Not funding instruments, but for coordination with broader policies and programmes

Innovation Union: Enhancing Joint Programming

JP is a voluntary partnership between Member States (and

Associated Countries) that aims to tackle major but common European societal challenges by combining national research programmes and thereby making better use of Europe’s limited R&D resources.

Three essential stages:development of a common vision; adoption of a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA); implementation of the SRA with the support of national

research instruments.

Two relevant Joint Programming Initiatives: • Agriculture, Food security and Climate Change • Heathy diet for a healthy life

=> address target within a specific societal challenge

Acting across whole research & innovation chain

=> bring together supply and demand, across sectors and borders => foster communication among stakeholders and workable links between science and practice (from

research to market)

Streamlining, simplifying and coordinating existing instruments and initiatives The EIP is not a funding instrument, nor a programme instrument; it cannot take decisions in areas for which Member States and/or the EU are competent Existing initiatives are keeping their own identity and lifecycle and can use the EIP as a platform for adjusting their own priorities and for contributing to its overall target

Innovation Union:

EIP «Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability» • Pilot EIP on active and healthy ageing (2011)Commission examines a first round of partnerships: raw

materials, water, smart cities, smart mobility and

Innovation Partnership on Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability

Communication concerning agricultural EIP schedule beginning

of 2012 (expected to include appropriate forest-related initiatives)

Subject to endorsement of EIP by Council and European

Parliament, Steering Board to be established beginning of 2012

Network Function of the EIP
