  • 1,400 Million EUR (20 to SMEs)
  • More than 300 projects and 2,500 participants
  • EU funding 40 of total European funding

3
FP7 successes and lessons learned
  • Some FP7 project results
  • -have been rapidly integrated into successful
    commercial products
  • - produced (lasting) benefits to stakeholders
    (even outside the consortium involved)
  • First lessons
  • - independent testing and validation of the
    results recommended at the end
  • - greater emphasis should be given to
    dissemination to users' community
  • - Large scale initiatives have given visibility

4
H-2020 Key pillars

  • Supporting Europe's excellent science base
  • Building industrial leadership in Europe
  • Tackling societal challenges for a better society
  • Secure societies


5
Security a societal challenge
  • It concerns the protection of citizens, society
    and economy as well as Europe's assets,
    infrastructures and services, its prosperity,
    political stability and well-being.
  • Any malfunction or disruption, intentional or
    accidental, can have a detrimental impact with
    high associated economic or societal costs.

6
Secure Societies does industry matter?
  • The security industry is one of the sectors with
    highest potential for growth and employment in
    the EU. In 2011, the sector employed 180,000
    people, with an annual turnover of approximately
    30 billion.
  • Overcoming market fragmentation through EU-wide
    standards
  • Reducing the gap from research to market by
    introducing new funding schemes such as
    Pre-Commercial Procurement
  • Better integration of societal considerations by
    thoroughly assessing the impact of security
    technologies on fundamental rights

7
Security Research
  • Maintains its mission driven character
  • Supports EU internal and external security
    policies
  • Supports the EU industry to be competitive
  • Strengthens the involvement of the end-users
  • Takes more into account the Societal Dimension
  • Includes Cyber-Security

36
Cyber Security
  • Citizens, businesses and administrations
    increasingly involved in digital interactions and
    transactions.
  • Internet led to cyber-crime worth B/ year, to
    attacks to critical infrastructures and to
    breaches of privacy.
  • Lack of security of digital technologies is a
    risk for economy and society.
  • Cyber security has become a political and
    economic priority.
  • Eurobarometer 50 of the EU citizens are worried
    (percentage increasing)

37
Cyber security has become part of "Secure
Societies
  • Challenges
  • - How to assess the threats in cyber-space and
    their possible scope?
  • - How to best tackle cyber-threats and protect
    citizens in the digital domain?
  • Convergence of traditional security needs and the
    digital world. Many infrastructures and services
    privately owned and operated, yet protection of
    public (safety and) security is responsibility of
    public authorities.
  • Security is an issue that can only be tackled
    effectively if all stakeholders cooperate
    companies and authorities must work together
    across borders.

38
International Dimension
  • All topics are open to international cooperation
  • Some topics explicitly encourage international
    cooperation
  • "In line with the EU's strategy for
    international cooperation in research and
    innovation international cooperation is
    encouraged, and in particular with international
    research partners involved in on-going
    discussions and workshops, and US homeland
    security research entities. Funding for third
    countries is however still subject to the 
    evaluations."
  • Eligibility for funding see Art. 10.2 of the
    Rules for Participation

39
Maritime Security European Council calls for
action
  • In the December 2013 conclusions, the European
    Council called for "an EU Maritime Security
    Strategy by June 2014, on the basis of a joint
    Communication from the Commission and the High
    Representative, taking into account the opinions
    of the Member States, and the subsequent
    elaboration of action plans to respond to
    maritime challenges"
  • By doing so the Council highlighted the
    importance of the topic and encouraged the
    Commission to take action in the field of
    maritime security.

43
Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP)
  • In Security Industrial Policy-Action Plan for an
    innovative and competitive Security Industry
    (COM(2012) 417 final) it is written
  • Pre-commercial procurement (PCP) is a very
    useful tool in bridging the gap from research to
    market..in particular in domains, where there is
    an institutional market or a market largely
    driven by legislation, given that public
    procurement of innovative products and services
    is vital for improving the quality and efficiency
    of public services at a time of budget
    constraints.
  • Eventually, PCP should enable public users to
    play a more central role in the innovation cycle
    through the purchase of novel technologies.
  • Procurers should act as "agents of change".
  • The Commission intends to devote a significant
    part of the Secure Societies budget in Horizon
    2020 on this instrument.

44
PCP - Pre-Commercial Procurement
  • When
  • Challenge requires RD to get new solutions
    developed. Problem clear, but pros / cons of
    several potential competing solutions not
    compared / validated yet. No commitment to deploy
    (PPI) yet.
  • What
  • Public sector buys RD to steer development of
    solutions to its needs, gather info about pros /
    cons of alternative solutions to be better
    informed to make specs for a follow-up PPI
    possibly later, to avoid supplier lock-in (create
    competitive supply base)
  • How
  • Public sector buys RD from several suppliers in
    parallel (comparing alternative solution
    approaches), in form of competition evaluating
    progress after critical milestones (design,
    prototyping, test phase), risks benefits of RD
    (e.g. IPRs) shared with suppliers to maximise
    incentives for wide commercialisation

    incentives for wide commercialisation

46
Public Procurement of Innovative Solutions
  • When?
  • Challenge requires solution which is almost on
    the market or already on the market in small
    quantity but not meeting public sector
    requirements for large scale deployment yet. No
    RD involved (already done, or not needed)
  • What?
  • Public sector acts as launching customer / early
    adopter / first buyer for innovative products and
    services that are newly arriving on the market
    (not widely commercially available yet)
  • How?
  • Public sector acts as facilitator establishing a
    buyers group with critical mass that triggers
    industry to scale up its production chain to
    bring products on the market with desired quality
    / price ratio within a specific time. After
    potentially a test / certification / labelling,
    the buyers group buys a significant volume of
    solutions.

    developed products/services to the market place
  • Solution
  • The SME instrument targets all types of
    innovative SMEs showing a strong ambition to
    develop, grow and internationalise
  • Legislative text Article 22(2) Regulation
  • " a dedicated SME instrument that is targeted
    at all types of SMEs with an innovation
    potential, in a broad sense, shall be created
    under a single centralised management system and
    shall be implemented primarily in a bottom-up
    manner via a continuously open call "
  • Budget earmarking
  • Funded by LEITs and SC. Initially 5, will rise
    to at least 7 averaged over H2020

SME Instrument Topic (DRS 17)
  • Structure
  • The SME instrument consists of three separate
    phases and a coaching and mentoring service for
    beneficiaries. Participants can apply to phase 1
    (feasibility study) with a view to applying to
    phase 2 (innovation project) at a later date, or
    directly to phase 2. In phase 3 (if applicable)
    SMEs can benefit from indirect support
    measures/services as well as access to the
    financial facilities supported under Access to
    Risk Finance of the work programme.
  • Expected impact
  • Enhancing profitability and growth performance of
    SMEs by combining and transferring new and
    existing knowledge into innovative, disruptive
    and competitive solutions seizing European and
    global business opportunities.
  • Budget
  • Phase 1 lump sum of EUR 50.000
  • Phase 2 between EUR 0.5 and 2.5 million

SME Instrument Topic (DRS 17 - Protection of
urban soft targets and urban critical
infrastructure)
  • Objective to carry out a small-scale
    demonstration of innovative technologies and
    tools (Phase 2).
  • Area urban critical infrastructure protection,
    such as, for example
  • - designing buildings and urban areas
  • - protection of energy/transport/communication
    grids
  • - critical infrastructure surveillance solutions
  • - protecting supply chains
  • - avoiding cyber-attacks and developing cyber
    resilience systems for critical infrastructures.
  • Scope focused to cover, for example
  • - high throughput screening of people and bags
    including ability to screen them in reasonably
    real-time as people approach entrances to
    buildings or enter public transportation system
  • - high throughput screening for vehicles to
    identify threats that warrant further inspection
    (as opposed to random searching)
  • - potential CBRN-E threats and the way in which
    these threats could be carried-out against soft
    targets and critical infrastructures
  • - mitigation of vehicle-borne improvised
    explosive devices, with a specific focus on
    vehicle-borne ones (e.g. in cases of parked
    vehicles, penetrative attacks, etc.).

European Council (19-20/12 2014) Conclusions
  • First thematic debate on defence since the entry
    into force of the Lisbon Treaty.
  • Highlighted the importance of an effective Common
    Security and Defence Policy (CSDP).
  • Recognised that financial constraints and
    fragmented defence markets limit military
    capabilities and jeopardise the stability and
    competitiveness of Europe's defence and security
    industry.
  • A number of priority actions were identified
  • Increasing the effectiveness, visibility and
    impact of CSDP
  • Enhancing the development of capabilities
  • Strengthening Europe's defence industry

54
European Council Research Dual-use
  • "To ensure the long-term competitiveness of the
    European defence industry and secure the modern
    capabilities needed, it is essential to retain
    defence Research Technology (RT) expertise,
    especially in critical defence technologies."
  • Civil and defence research reinforce each other
  • Further dual-use research is encouraged
  • Synergies between national and EU research should
    be maximised
  • A Preparatory Action on CDSP-related research
    will be set up
