16 Excellent science FET Future and emerging technologies Fet Open: Supporting a large set of embryonic, high risk visionary science and technology collaborative interdisciplinary research projects, exploration of new foundations for radically new future technologies explicitly non topical and non-prescriptive (bottom-up approach) broadest spectrum of themes and disciplines (not only ICT).. Attracting and stimulating the participation of new high-potential actors in research and innovation, such as young researchers and high-tech SMEs Open call

17 Excellent science FET Future and emerging technologies Fet Open WP : Long-term vision: the research proposed must address a new, original or radical long-term vision of technology-enabled possibilities that are far beyond the state of the art and currently not anticipated by technology roadmaps. Breakthrough S&T target: research must target scientifically ambitious and technologically concrete breakthroughs that are arguably crucial steps towards achieving the long-term vision and that are plausibly attainable within the life-time of the proposed project. Foundational: the breakthroughs that are envisaged must be foundational in the sense that they can establish a basis for a new line of technology not currently anticipated

18 Industrial leadership Industrial leadership Why: support to industry, to recover from economic crisis Emphasis on R&D and innovation with strong industrial dimension Activities primarily developed through industrial roadmaps (ETPs, PPPs) Involvement of industrial participants and SMEs to maximise expected impact: key aspect of proposal evaluation Funded projects will be outcome oriented, developing key technology building blocks and bringing them closer to the market Proposers are asked to demonstrate how the exploitation of results will generate the expected impact and contribute to the European economy (business plan, exploitation plan) KETs.

19 Industrial leadership KETs Industrial leadership le KETs Tecnologie "ad alta intensità di conoscenza e associate ad elevata intensità di R & S, a cicli d'innovazione rapidi, a consistenti spese di investimento e a posti di lavoro altamente qualificati. Rendono possibile l'innovazione nei processi, nei beni e nei servizi in tutti i settori economici e hanno quindi rilevanza sistemica. Sono multidisciplinari, interessano tecnologie di diversi settori e tendono a convergere e a integrarsi. Possono aiutare i leader nelle tecnologie di altri settori a trarre il massimo vantaggio dalle loro attività di ricerca Photonics Advanced Manufacturing Nanotechnologies Biotechnology Micro/Nanoelectronics Advanced Materials

20 Industrial leadership KETs Industrial leadership le KETs the KET parts of this work programme will use Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) where relevant. This Work Programme addresses Technology Readiness Levels from 3-4 up to 7-8. For Space, this Work Programme focuses on low Technology Readiness Levels (1-4), with bottom-up calls, and on preparing the ground for high Technology Readiness Level activities (6-7), with Strategic Research Clusters and in-orbit demonstration "Cross-cutting KETs" activities bring together and integrate different KETs and reflect the interdisciplinary nature of technological development (ex mob phones=micro/nano electronics, advanced materials etc). The integration of different KETs represents a vital activity in Horizon Over the course of Horizon 2020, around 30% of the budget allocated to KETs will go to integrated KETs projects.

21 Industrial leadership KETs Industrial leadership TRL Where a topic description refers to a TRL, the following definitions apply, unless otherwise specified: TRL 1 basic principles observed TRL 2 technology concept formulated TRL 3 experimental proof of concept TRL 4 technology validated in lab TRL 5 technology validated in relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of key enabling technologies) TRL 6 technology demonstrated in relevant environment (industrially relevant environment in the case of key enabling technologies) TRL 7 system prototype demonstration in operational environment TRL 8 system complete and qualified TRL 9 actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing in the case of key enabling technologies; or in space)

22 Industrial leadership KETs Industrial leadership le KETs Future solutions to the major Societal Challenges will require the deployment of key enabling technologies, ICT components and systems, and communication infrastructure (including space). The activities under this Work Programme will further develop the technologies that are needed to enable promising solutions for important (focus) areas and applications addressing societal challenges (ex. in order to combat cancer and diabetes, the technological basis for nano-medicine treatment and bio-materials will be developed). biotechnology is relevant for a number of focus areas (blue growth, sustainable food security, water, personalised medicine ).

23 Industrial leadership Industrial leadership esempio di bando 1/3 NMP : Storage of energy produced by decentralised sources ). Specific challenge: Electricity will increasingly be produced from sources which are geographically decentralised and/or are intermittent in their nature. There is thus an urgent need to increase the storage of energy, in order to improve on the stability of weak grids, to be able to intentionally island the electricity distribution, and to ensure the continuity of energy supply. Scope: Proposals should develop innovative materials solutions that will make storage technologies more available, better performing and more cost effective. The solutions should exploit synergies between technologies as much as possible, contributing to the development of hybrid systems. Support from integrated computational/experimental approaches is envisaged.

24 Industrial leadership Industrial leadership esempio di bando 2/3 NMP : Storage of energy produced by decentralised sources ). Scope: For this topic, proposals should include an outline of the initial exploitation and business plans. Wherever possible, proposers could actively seek synergies, including possibilities for cumulative funding, with relevant national / regional research and innovation programmes and/or European Structural and Investment Funds in connection with smart specialisation strategies. Exploitation plans, outline financial arrangements and any follow-up should be developed during the project. Activities expected to focus on Technology Readiness Level 5.

25 Industrial leadership KETs Industrial leadership esempio di bando 3/3 NMP : Storage of energy produced by decentralised sources ). Expected impact: Alleviation of geographical constraints for low carbon energy production, with increased efficiencies at a reduced cost; Reduction of the barriers to increase the penetration rate of distributed and /or intermittent renewable energy sources; Realisation of a new generation of energy technologies that will support the competitiveness of European industries through the realisation of a new generation of storage technologies based on advanced materials; Implementation of relevant parts of the Materials Roadmap Enabling Low Carbon Energy Technologies (SEC (2011) 1609), and relevant objectives of the SET-Plan. Type of action: Research & Innovation Actions

26 Societal challenges Societal challenges Why: Concerns of citizens and society/eu policy objectives (climate, environment, energy, transport etc) cannot be achieved without innovation Breakthrough solutions come from multidisciplinary collaborations, including social sciences and humanities Promising solutions need to be tested, demonstrated and scaled up..

27 Societal challenges Societal challenges 1)Health, demographic change and wellbeing 2)Food security, sustainable agriculture, marine and maritime research & the bioeconomy 3)Secure, clean and efficient energy* 4)Smart, green and integrated transport 5)Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials 6)Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies 7)Secure societies *Additional 1 788m for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities ( ).

28 Socio-economic sciences and humanities Integrated approach: SSH included as an integral part of the activities, working beyond 'silos (e.g. understanding the determinants of health and optimising the effectiveness of healthcare systems from a socio-economic point of view).
