Instruments for “Priority Areas”
Two Priorities: INTEGRATION & EXCELLENCE
• Integrated Projects
– Objective driven
• Networks of Excellence
– Exploratory research
• Targeted research projects
– (address specific issues)
• Co-ordination actions
No longer available …..
- Individual Take-up Actions
- SME Exploratory Awards
• Support Actions
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Proyectos integrados (PI)
• Objetivo: Movilización de recursos en torno a objetivos concretos
(productos, procesos, servicios) dirigidos a mejorar la competitividad
europea o a resolver problemas de la sociedad, generando el
conocimiento requerido para implementar las prioridades temáticas.
• Actividades: Actividades de demostración; transferencia de
tecnología; formación; difusión de resultados; contratación de subproyectos específicos de complementación
• Duración: 3 a 5 años.
• Asociación: Mínimo de 3 participantes de Estados Miembros o
Asociados
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Integrated Project - what is critical mass?
• Resource wise (Open):
– will have the necessary size to achieve its ambitious objectives
– budget may range up to millions of € (no minimum threshold,
provided necessary ambition & critical mass is achieved)
• Partnership wise (Open):
– minimum 3 participants from three different countries
(but in practice likely to be substantially more)
• Duration wise (Open):
– typically three to five years
(more if necessary to deliver the objectives)
In a typical integrated project, more than 25
partners receive almost 10 M€ for a period of 3-4
years to which they add an equivalent amount as
the Community funds only 50% of the costs.
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Integrated Projects - flexibility & autonomy
• For the implementation plan, each year
– consortium will propose detailed plans for the coming 18 months
– and may propose to update the overall plan
(both need approval of the Commission to enter into force)
• For the Community contribution
– the contract may not specify its distribution between participants
nor between activities
• For changes in the consortium
– the consortium may decide to take in new participants
(without additional funding)
– the contract will specify when the addition of new participants
must involve a competitive call
– competitive call by Commission to add tasks and funding
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Redes de Excelencia (RE)
• Objetivo: Integración duradera de las capacidades de los
grupos de investigación, construyendo una masa crítica de
recursos y conocimientos para conseguir un liderazgo
europeo en un área. Se agrupan en torno a un programa
conjunto de actividades.
• Actividades: Intercambio de personal; trabajo a distancia;
formación; transferencia de tecnología; integración de
grupos.
• Duración: Menos de 5 años.
• Asociación: Mínimo de 3 participantes de Estados
Miembros o Asociados.
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Network of Excellence - main features
• “Virtual” centre of Excellence
– a clearly identified “Joint Programme of Activity” (JPA)
(RTD, training, transfer, mobility... )
– established or emerging fields
• Size
– Several M€ per year (average1-2M)
– Participants
• minimum of 3: Universities, Research Labs, Industrial Labs
• bringing together a “critical mass” of key actors
• universities, research centres, enterprises (SME’s & large
companies)
• Research oriented
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
NoE - implementation
• Selection on the basis of calls for proposals
• Large degree of autonomy
– possibility to modify plans and allocation of work
– possibility to launch a call for participation
• Funding
–
–
–
–
grant for integration
should be essentially dedicated to the JPA (work programme)
7% Management
funding is defined by the number of researchers involved
(20 000 euro)
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Proyectos Específicos de
Investigación Focalizada

problemas concretos, desarrollo o validación de nuevas
tecnologías, procesos, productos o servicios.
• Actividades: Actividades de investigación, demostración,
innovación, y formación.
• Duración: 2 a 3 años.
• Asociación: Mínimo de 3 participantes de Estados Miembros o
Asociados
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Targeted RTD projects
• Principle: focused on one specific activity & specific results
– by supporting research activities of more limited scope &
ambition than Integrated Projects
• Similar to current RTD contracts
– research (50%)
– demonstration (35%)
– combined research & demonstration
• Participation: at least two independent organisations
– from at least two Member States or Associated States
– more limited than for Integrated Projects
– particularly for smaller research actors, including SME’s and
for participants from candidate countries
– Joint and several financial liability

Demand of environmental applications
Research themes
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Environmental modelling
 Modelling of the biosphere with more and more
biotic and abiotic components will be a great challenge.
 Climatic research (space weather included) with
models in different scales and different resolution
will require new architectures with access to distributed
resources.
 Branch oriented simulation systems will be the
adequate software tools, allowing flexible adaptation to
the special structure and data of complex environmental
systems
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Environmental Applications
 Complexity (dimension(s), structure(s))
 Scale (amount of data, distribution,
heterogeneity)
 Modelling for different purposes (scenario
analysis, emergency response, risk management,
etc…)
 Need for adaptability (coupling of models,
parameter adjustment, etc)
 Longevity of data, applicability to different
purposes
EU-LAT WinCo Conferencia: Mexico DF, MEXICO 13/04/2005 – 15/04/2005
Research Priorities
» Parallel, distributed and Grid computing
» Knowledge from data, decision support
» Intelligent/adaptive user interfaces & visualisation
» Standardisation of metadata and system interfaces
» Genericity of information and simulation systems
» Workflows for automatic access to distributed resources
