  3. EU Projects

  4. Work Programmes Structure 1 2 7 a b n i ii n Challenges Objectives Target Outcome Expected Impact IP Budget Distribution STREP NoE CSA Funding Schemes Call

  5. Funding Schemes – IP • Purpose: Ambitious objective driven research with a ‘programme approach’ • Target audience: Industry (incl. SMEs), research institutions. Universities – and in some cases potential end-users • Typical duration: 36-60 months • Optimum consortium: 10-20 participants

  6. Funding Schemes – STREP • Purpose: Objective driven research more limited in scope than an IP • Target audience: Industry incl. SMEs, research institutes, universities • Typical duration: 18-36 months • Optimum consortium: 6-15 participants

  7. Funding Schemes – NoE • Purpose: Durable integration of participants’ research activities • Target audience: research institutions, universities, mainly indirectly: industry – through governing boards etc • Typical duration: 48-60 months(but indefinite integration!) • Optimum consortium: 6-12 participants

  8. Funding Schemes – CSA • Purpose: Coordination of research activities and Support to programme implementation, preparation of future actions, dissemination of results • Target audience: research institutions, universities, industry incl. SMEs • Typical duration: 18-36 months (CA); 9-30 months (SSA) • Optimum consortium: 13-26 participants (CA); 1-15 participants (SSA)

  11. Useful Tips • Think Strategic – Do not see it as a money making machine • Have a Cool, New and Innovative Idea • Have a Strong Profile • Be Realistic • Be Selective – do not shoot anything that moves • Be close to your business • Set SMART Objectives

  12. Useful Tips cont… • Learn from Past Experiences especially others’ • Read ALL documents including guide for reviewers • Raise Issues early (IP, delivery, financial capability) • Progress to milestones • Track resources • Conduct regular audits • Find the right project and right partner • Submit Early and Often when using EPSS

  13. Finding the Right Partner • How ? • Networking • Be Proactive • Use resources (NCPs, Web, FP Projects…) • Refer to past Projects • Who ? • Established entities • Technical Skills • Coordination Skills • Project Management Skills

  14. Getting Support • FP7 Support • Supporting Website at http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict • Helpdesk for Proposers’ questions at ict@ec.europa.eu • Contact Person for Objectives in each call • Helpdesk for EPSS • National Contact Points • The network of NCPs is the main structure to provide guidance and practical information • Personalised support during the project

  15. National Contact Points • Established and financed by Member States • Networked to all other NCPs in Europe • One NCP for each area of FP7

  16. Role of MCST in FP7 • MCST is the NCP organisation in Malta for FP7. • MCST has appointed an NCP for every thematic and horizontal area in FP7. • List of National Contact Points on MCST website – Contacts Section • Every local NCP is part of a NCP network at the European level.

  17. Role of the National Contact Point • Offers a helpful and FREE service. • Disseminates information on FP7. • Maintains website and provide e-mail updates. • Identifies opportunities for Maltain current calls. • Organises info days and training workshops. • Helps in finding the right EC funding and partner.

  18. Role of the National Contact Pointcont… • Advises on joining consortia and proposal writing. • Networks locally and abroad. • Assists in partner searches. • Offers one-to-one consultations & full confidentiality. • Assistance of FP7 Documents and procedures

  19. National FP7 websitehttp://www.mcst.gov.mt/index_fp7.aspx • Information on FP7 • Calls • Events (Local & International) • FP7 Documents and Publications • List of NCPs and contact details • Organisation Profiles and Success Stories • Project Ideas and Partner Searches • Direct link with other FP7 initiatives • Direct link with Cordis – www.cordis.europa.eu DEMO

  20. Cordis websitehttp://cordis.europa.eu • Up-to-date information on European Research • Information on past and current R&D activities • Specific thematic and practical information • Information on European funding for projects • Partnerships and involvement in R&D activities • Assistance and support • Interactive services to promote your activities and projects • Powerful search and automatic e-mail delivery services • A library of R&D policy and practice documents DEMO

  21. Conclusion • FP7 is an important opportunity for the SMEs to get together, to build partnerships and reflect on the future developments of the field. • Participation in FP7 projects is possible for SMEs, that are willing to look ahead and invest in future technology. • It is critical to choose the right projects and partners and be very realistic about the opportunities • The NCPs can provide help with FP7 information and advice, hand-holding, partner searches and contacts.
