Title: European Research Council - a new element in the UE research policy?


1
European Research Council - a new element in
the UE research policy?
  • Michal Kleiber
  • President of the Polish Academy of Sciences
  • Member of the European Research Council
  • Senior Advisor to the President of Poland
  • Taipei, September 2008

2
Challenges for Research in Europe
  • Limited career opportunities
  • Appealing career opportunities from third
    countries attracting European graduates
  • Dropping private RD investment
  • Fragmentation of research and funding activities
    ? lack of competition
  • Complex Administration not helping to attract
    and maintain the best researchers
  • Fewer students taking Science subjects

3
European Science Policy Paradox
  • How to do ground-breaking research with
  • no significant investment
  • no scientists involved in policy-making

4
Why an ERC ?
  • 1.93 of Europes GDP is invested in RD compared
    with 2.59 in US and 3.15 in Japan (European
    Commission, July 2005)
  • US scientists dominate in each of the 21 subject
    areas of science (Basu, 2004)
  • Public opinion influenced by the most
    spectacular, ground-breaking achievements

13
Frontier Research
  • Classical distinctions between basic and applied
    research have lost much of their relevance at a
    time when many emerging areas of science and
    technology (e.g. biotechnology, ICT, materials
    and nanotechnology) often embrace substantial
    elements of both.
  • Frontier research pursues questions irrespective
    of established disciplinary boundaries. It may
    well involve multi- or trans-disciplinary
    research that brings together researchers from
    different disciplinary backgrounds, with
    different theoretical and conceptual approaches,
    techniques, methodologies and instrumentation,
    perhaps even different goals and motivations.
  • The task of funding agencies is confined to
    supporting the best researchers with the most
    exciting ideas.
  • Need to confront the intrinsic risk involved in
    frontier research projects.

14
ERC challenges
  • Avoid outmoded distinctions
  • Between basic and applied research
  • Between science and technology
  • Between traditional disciplines

15
ERC Guiding Principles
  • Significant funding for ambitious frontier
    research projects all fields of research,
    cross-disciplinary and unconventional (high-risk)
    projects
  • Simple and flexible application procedures
  • Scientific excellence (of person and proposal) as
    sole criterion
  • Investigator-driven research individual
    research teams led by a single Principal
    Investigator are supported (PI located in or
    moving to EU no nationality criterion open to
    the entire world)
  • Grants are awarded to the host institution that
    engages the Principal Investigator
  • The host institution guarantees the Principal
    Investigators independence and provides the
    research environment to carry out the project and
    manage its funding
  • Special emphasis on young researchers
  • An ERC grant can cover up to 100 of the total
    eligible direct costs of the research plus a
    contribution towards indirect costs, which cannot
    exceed 20 of the total eligible direct costs

16
Evaluation
  • Sole criteria for success "excellence" of
    proposal and principal investigator critical
    importance of the evaluation panels and process.
  • Setting up the peer review system for the
    evaluation process establishing across the
    three domains a number of panels covering a
    broad range of topics rather than being focused
    on traditional disciplines, ensuring that
    consideration given to high quality,
    interdisciplinary proposals.
  • Selection of Panel Chairs and members of the
    highest international reputation in EU and
    beyond.
  • Enthusiasm amongst Europe's scientists towards
    the ERC and ScC strategy seen in unprecedented
    acceptance approaching 95 of the persons invited
    to participate in the peer review evaluation
    panels.

17
ERC Grants
  • The ERC Starting Independent Researchers Grants
    (ERC Starting Grants StG). The objective is to
    provide adequate support to the independent
    careers of excellent researchers, whatever their
    nationality, located in or moving to the EU and
    associated countries, who are at the stage of
    establishing and leading their first research
    team or program.
  • The ERC Advanced Investigator Grants (ERC
    Advanced Grants AdG). The objective is to
    encourage and support excellent, innovative
    investigator-initiated research projects by
    leading advanced investigators across the EU
    member states and countries associated to the
    framework programme. It will complement the
    Starting Grant scheme by targeting the population
    of researchers who have already established
    themselves as being independent leaders in their
    own right.

18
Who can apply ?
  • Individual Teams
  • The Team Leader (Principal Investigator) has
  • the power to assemble his/her research group,
  • the freedom to choose the research topic.
  • Individual teams should consist of a grouping of
    researchers which meets the needs of the project,
    without artificial administrative constraints
    thus members may be drawn from one or several
    legal entities, from either within or across
    national boundaries, including third countries.

19
Who can apply?
  • Principal Investigator
  • 27 EU Member States
  • Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL),
  • including ACC (TR, HR)
  • Team Members
  • 27 EU Member States
  • Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL),
  • including ACC (TR, HR)
  • International Cooperation Partner Countries
    (ICPC)
  • Other industrialised countries, e.g. Australia,
    Canada, Japan, USA, Taiwan

20
Funding of International Teams
  • Possibility of funding
  • 27 EU Member States
  • Associated Countries (e.g. NO, IS, CH, IL),
  • including ACC (TR, HR)
  • International Cooperation Partner Countries
    (ICPC)
  • Funded only if indispensable
  • Other industrialised countries

21
The Principal Investigator (PI)
  • The PI is the team's lead researcher who has the
    scientific responsibility for the corresponding
    project. He/she can be of any age, nationality or
    country of residence.
  • In order to be eligible for a grant, the PI must
    be independent or, for the ERC Starting Grant, at
    the stage at which she/he is establishing
    independence (i.e. beginning to lead or leading
    an independent research team) or, depending on
    the field, establishing an independent research
    programme.
  • Independence implies that the PI has the
    authority to
  • Apply for funding independently of senior
    colleagues
  • Direct the research project, manage the funding
    and make appropriate resource allocation
    decisions
  • Publish as senior author and invite as co-authors
    only those who have contributed substantially to
    the reported work
  • Supervise team members, including research
    students or others
  • Have access to reasonable space and facilities
    for conducting the research.

22
ERC Starting Grant - Profile of the Principal
Investigator (PI)
  • The PI must have been awarded his/her first PhD
    (or equivalent doctoral degree) more than 2 and
    less than 9 years prior to the deadline of the
    call for proposals.
  • Extensions to this period may be allowed in case
    of eligible career breaks which must be properly
    documented maternity (1 year per child born
    after the PhD award) and paternity leave
    (accumulation of actual time off, max. 1 year per
    child born after the PhD award) and leave taken
    for long-term illness, national service. Leave
    taken for unavoidable statutory reasons (e.g.
    clinical qualifications) may also count as an
    extension. No allowance will be made for
    part-time working (2 years of half-time working
    count as 2 full-time years).
  • The cumulative eligibility period should not in
    any case surpass 12 years following the award of
    the first PhD.

23
ERC Advanced Grant - Profile of the Principal
Investigator (PI)
  • PIs applying for the ERC Advanced Grant must be
    established research leaders who have made
    exceptional contributions to research in terms of
    originality and significance. They must be active
    researchers with an outstanding track record of
    significant research achievements in the last 10
    years. There is little prospect of an application
    succeeding in the absence of such an outstanding
    track record.
  • In most fields, PIs of ERC Advanced Grant
    proposals are expected to demonstrate a
  • record of research achievements in the last 10
    years matching at least one or more of the
    following benchmarks (depending on the field)
  • Normally 10 publications as senior author (or in
    those fields where alphabetic order of authorship
    is the norm, joint author) in major international
    peerreviewed multidisciplinary scientific
    journals, and/or in the leading international
    peer-reviewed journals of their respective
    fields
  • Normally 3 major research monographs, of which at
    least one is translated into another language.
    This benchmark is relevant to research fields
    where publication of monographs is the norm (e.g.
    humanities and social sciences).

24
ERC Advanced Grant - Profile of the Principal
Investigator (PI)
  • Other alternative benchmarks that may be
    considered (individually or in combination) as
    indicative of an exceptional record and
    recognition in the last 10 years
  • Normally 5 granted patents
  • Normally 10 invited presentations in
    well-established internationally organised
    conferences and advanced schools
  • Normally 3 research expeditions led by the
    applicant
  • Normally 3 well-established international
    conferences or congresses where the applicant was
    involved in their organisation as a member of the
    steering and/or organising committee
  • Internationally recognition through scientific
    prizes/awards or membership in well-recognised
    Academies.

25
Evaluation Criteria - Principal Investigator
  • Quality of research output/track-record
  • How well qualified is the Principal Investigator
    (and any co-Investigator if applicable) to
    conduct the project (reviewers are expected to
    evaluate the quality of the prior work such as
    published results in top peer review journals as
    well as other elements of the Principal
    Investigators CV).
  • To what extent are the publications and
    achievements of the Principal Investigator
    groundbreaking and demonstrative of independent
    creative thinking and capacity to go
    significantly beyond the state of the art? To
    what extent does the quality and quantity of
    funding the Principal
  • Investigator has attracted during the last ten
    years demonstrate his/her reputation as a
    performer of ground-breaking research?
  • Intellectual capacity and creativity
  • To what extent does the Principal Investigator's
    record of research, collaborations, project
    conception, supervision of students and
    publications demonstrate that he/she is able to
    confront major research challenges in the field,
    and to initiate new productive lines of thinking?

26
Evaluation Criteria - Research project
  • Ground-breaking nature of the research
  • Does the proposed research address important
    challenges at the frontiers of the field(s)
    addressed? Does it have suitably ambitious
    objectives, which go substantially beyond the
    current state of the art (e.g. including inter-
    and transdisciplinary developments and novel or
    unconventional concepts and/or approaches)? How
    well conceived and organized is the proposed
    activity?
  • Potential impact
  • Does the research open new and important,
    scientific, technological or scholarly horizons?
  • Will the project significantly enhance the
    research environment and capabilities for
    frontier research in Europe (including the host
    institution)?

27
Evaluation Criteria - Research project
  • Methodology
  • Is the outlined scientific approach (including
    the activities to be undertaken by the individual
    team members) feasible?
  • Is the proposed research methodology (including
    when pertinent the use of instrumentation, other
    type of infrastructures etc.) comprehensive and
    appropriate to the project? Will it enable the
    goals of the project convincingly to be achieved
    within the timescales and resources proposed and
    the level of risk associated with a challenging
    research project?
  • High-gain/High-risk balance
  • Does the proposed research involve highly novel
    and/or unconventional methodologies, whose high
    risk is justified by the possibility of a major
    breakthrough with an impact beyond a specific
    research domain/discipline?

28
Evaluation Criteria - Research Environment
  • Contribution of the research environment to the
    project
  • Does the host environment provide most of the
    infrastructure necessary for the research to be
    carried out? Is it in a position to provide an
    appropriate intellectual environment and
    infrastructural support and to assist in
    achieving the ambitions for the project and the
    Principal Investigator?
  • Participation of other legal entities
  • If it is proposed that other legal entities
    participate in the project, in addition to the
    applicant legal entity, is their participation
    fully justified by the scientific added value
    they bring to the project?

29
  • The Scientific Council has established, based on
    world-wide practice, the following indicative
    budget for each of the 3 main scientific domains
  • Physical Sciences and Engineering 45
  • Biological and Life Sciences 40
  • Social Sciences and Humanities 15
  • A reserve in the overall budget, not exceeding
    20 of the total, may be retained for funding
    proposals that have been judged of comparable
    merit but beyond the budget allocated to the
    specific scientific domain, and can be used to
    further promote frontier research and
    interdisciplinarity.

Preliminary assessment of the wider ERC impact
  • ERC has influenced the discussion at the national
    level on how to support high risk projects
    (changing research funding culture).
  • Research institutions as well as industry have
    intensified discussion on the increasing need of
    frontier research to close the existing and
    growing knowledge gap.
  • ERC addresses researchers all over the world. A
    high proportion of non-European reviewer and
    panel members. ERC as a global player.
  • ERC is a learning and flexible institution.
  • The ERC will provide financial support for
    projects, studies, services and associated
    initiatives for the monitoring, assessment and
    evaluation of the ERC Activities.
  • BUT measures are needed
  • to simplify the evaluation procedure
  • to reduce the number of submitted proposals
  • to increase resources
