FET Flagships – Tackling Grand Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Challenges

Flagships are science-driven, large-scale, multidisciplinary research initiatives oriented towards a unifying goal, aiming at transformational impacts on science and technology and substantial benefits for European competitiveness and society. The goals of such initiatives are visionary and highly ambitious in terms of scientific challenges, resources and coordinated efforts. They require cooperation among a range of disciplines, communities and national, regional and European programmes. The implementation model of the Flagships and their governance structure are described in the Commission Staff Working Document on FET Flagships.

FET-OPEN: New Ideas for Radically New Technologies

This call aims to support the early stages of joint science and technology research for radically new future technological possibilities. The call is entirely non-prescriptive with regards to the nature or purpose of the technologies that are envisaged and thus targets mainly the unexpected. A bottom-up selection process will build up a diverse portfolio of projects. In order to identify and seize opportunities of long-term benefit for citizens, the economy and society, the early detection of promising new areas, developments and trends, wherever they come from, will be essential. The FET-Open call also seeks for coordination and support activities to turn Europe into the best place in the world for responsible collaborative research and innovation on future and emerging technologies that will make a difference for society in the decades to come. Finally, a specific topic under this call aims to stimulate innovation by initiating entrepreneurial activities around results from FET research projects.

Digital Security Focus Area

ICT-driven transformations bring opportunities across many important sectors but also vulnerabilities to critical infrastructures and digital services, which can have significant consequences on the functioning of society, economic growth and the technological innovation potential of Europe. These challenges are being addressed through innovative approaches that cross the boundaries of individual H2020 pillars, calls and challenges. Therefore the main research & Innovation activities in Digital Security are grouped in a dedicated focus area cutting across LEIT–ICT and Societal Challenges parts of the work programme, including evidently the Societal Challenge 7 on "Secure Societies", but also the Societal Challenge 1 on "Health, demographic change and wellbeing".

2016-2017 Mobility for Growth

Transport is on the brink of a new era of "smart mobility'' where infrastructure, transport means, travellers and goods will be increasingly interconnected to achieve optimised door-to-door mobility, higher safety, less environmental impact and lower operational costs. In order to achieve efficiency at system-level, targeted efforts are needed to develop and validate new solutions that can be rapidly deployed, notably on corridors and in urban areas. They will address transport means and infrastructure and integrate them into a user friendly European transport system of smart connected mobility and logistics. Research and innovation on equipment and systems for vehicles, aircraft and vessels will make them smarter, more automated, cleaner and quieter, while reducing the use of fossil fuels. Research and innovation on smart infrastructure solutions is necessary to deploy innovative traffic management and information systems, advanced traveller services, efficient logistics, construction and maintenance technologies.

Greening the Economy

The objective of this action is to bring together the main national research funding owners and/or managers involved in the PRIMA joint programming process, including the non-European participating states and their institutions, around a jointly designed Strategic Research Agenda with appropriate governance and implementation structures. A critical mass of players and increased synergies between all relevant stakeholders (e.g. relevant ministries responsible for sustainable agricultural production systems and water resources management, research institutions and universities, farmers' organisations) will be key elements for addressing the challenge. In agreement with the Commission services, projects should ensure appropriate flexibility so as to respond in real time to potentially fast-changing policy scenarios.

Information and Communication Technologies Call

A novelty in Horizon 2020 is the Pilot on Open Research Data which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects. Projects funded under the ICT call of the Work Programme 2016-17 will by default participate in the Pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020. Projects have the possibility to opt out of the Pilot. Participation in the Pilot is not taken into account during the evaluation procedure. In other words, proposals will not be evaluated favourably because they are part of the Pilot and will not be penalised for opting out of the Pilot.

Science with and for Society

The Horizon 2020 Specific Programme describes the aim of Part V 'Science with and for Society' (SWAFS) as follows: "The aim is to build effective cooperation between science and society, to recruit new talent for science and to pair scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility". To that end, it indicates that the focus will be on 8 specific activities lines: attractiveness of scientific careers, gender equality, integration of citizens’ interests and values in research and innovation (R&I), formal and informal science education, accessibility and use of research results, governance for the advancement of responsible research and innovation and promotion of an ethics framework for research and innovation, anticipation of potential environmental, health and safety impacts, and improved knowledge on science communication. It also states the importance of the complementarities and cross-cutting issues between the various parts of Horizon 2020, notably for Science and Society and for gender equality.
