3 Societal challenges
  • Why
  • EU policy objectives (climate, environment,
    energy, transport etc.) cannot be achieved
    without innovation
  • Breakthrough solutions come from
    multi-disciplinary collaborations, including
    social sciences humanities
  • Promising solutions need to be tested,
    demonstrated and scaled up

Horizon 2020 - Whats new
  • A single programme bringing together three
    separate programmes/initiatives that will cover
    all research and innovation funding currently
    provided through
  • Framework Programme for Research and Technical
    Development (53bn)
  • Competitiveness and Innovation Framework
    Programme (CIP) (3.6bn)
  • European Institute of Innovation and Technology
    (EIT) (309m)
  • More innovation, all forms of innovation, from
    research to retail
  • Focus on societal challenges facing EU society,
    e.g. health, clean energy, green transport
  • Simplified access, for all companies, state
    bodies, universities, institutes in all EU
    countries and beyond
  • Strengthening complementarities with the
    Structural Funds

Simplification Rules for Participation
  • 1. A single set of rules
  • Adapted for the whole research and innovation
    cycle covering all research programmes and
    funding bodies
  • 2. One project one funding rate
  • Maximum of 100 of the total eligible costs
    (except for actions close to market, where a 70
    maximum will apply)
  • Indirect eligible costs ( Overheads) a flat
    rate of 25 of direct eligible costs / VAT will
    now be an eligible cost
  • 3. Simple evaluation criteria
  • 3 Criteria - Excellence Impact
  • 4. New forms of funding
  • aimed at innovation pre-commercial procurement,
    inducement prizes, dedicated loan and equity
  • 5. International participation facilitated while
    protecting EU interests

Action primarily consisting of activities
directly aiming at producing plans and
arrangements or designs for new, altered or
improved products, processes or services. For
this purpose they may include prototyping,
testing, demonstrating, piloting, large-scale
product validation and market replication. A
demonstration or pilot aims to validate the
technical and economic viability of a new or
improved technology, product, process, service or
solution in an operational (or near to
operational) environment, whether industrial or
otherwise, involving where appropriate a larger
scale prototype or demonstrator. Funding rate

a rate of 100 applies)
See General Annexes for full details on all the
Coordination and support actions Actions
consisting primarily of accompanying measures
such as standardisation, dissemination,
awareness-raising and communication, networking,
coordination or support services, policy
dialogues and mutual learning exercises and

MG.2.1-2014. I²I Intelligent Infrastructure
  • Smart, cost-efficient, high-capacity,
    user-friendly rail infrastructure
  • proposals should aim at identifying relevant
    infrastructure-related challenges and developing
    solutions that result in
  • reduced investment
  • recurring operational costs
  • improve the reliability and availability of rail
    operations and
  • increase the attractiveness and usability for all
    passenger categories (including persons with
    reduced mobility)
  • I2M Intelligent mobility management
    Development of intelligent, automated and
    flexible rail traffic dispatching systems,
    supporting an integrated approach to the
    optimisation of railway architecture and
    operational systems at network, route and
    individual train level.
  • Solutions to consider customer service, capacity,
    speed, timekeeping, energy, asset management
    with real time field and asset condition
    monitoring and intelligent traffic planning.
  • Emphasis should be given to real-time data
    collection and analytics from trains and
    infrastructure for the purposes of goal oriented
    predictive and adaptive control of the traffic

MG.2.1-2014. I²I Intelligent Infrastructure
  • Energy management the work should address
    innovative approaches to improve the efficiency
    of energy usage in rail systems, embracing
    vehicles, infrastructure and operation within a
    whole-system perspective. This will imply notably
    the development of smart concepts in intelligent
    design and management of energy systems for rail
    applications which should be pursued from a
    whole-of-life perspective - from concept to
    implementation through the design, procurement,
    manufacturing, construction, operations and
    maintenance phases.

MG.2.1-2014. New Generation of Rail Vehicles
Proposals should focus on innovative system
approaches leading in the longer-term to the
development and demonstration of a new-generation
of railway vehicles and passenger trains,
characterised by significant improvements in
product reliability, cost-effectiveness,
user-friendliness, safety and security,
environmental impacts, ease of manufacture and
  • MG.2.2-2014. Smart rail services
  • Two specific challenges concerning seamless
    travel and logistic services.
  • Seamless multimodal travel The challenge is to
    enhance the rail traveler experience centered on
    solutions that respond to customer needs to
    support anytime, anywhere door to-door intermodal
    journeys encompassing distinct modes of
    transportation, including factors as travel
    planning, one-stop-shop ticketing and booking
    transactions, en-route travel companion,
    real-time re-accommodation.
  • 2. Logistic services The challenge is two-fold
  • To acquire a new service-oriented profile for
    rail freight services based on excellence in
    on-time delivery at competitive prices,
    interweaving its operations with other transport
    modes, addressing the real needs of the clientele
    while incorporating innovative value-added
  • To increase productivity, by addressing current
    operational and system weaknesses and
    limitations, including interoperability issues,
    and finding cost-effective solutions to these
    problems. Fostering technology transfer from
    other sectors into rail freight will be crucial
    for these innovation strategies to be put in place
