  1. 1. Innovation actions in Horizon 2020 Fostering collaboration with Member States and Regions BERLIN 17 -18 June 2014 BERLIN Dr. Max Lemke Head of Unit Complex Systems and Advanced Computing DG CONNECT, European Commission
  2. 2. CONTENT 1. Need for innovation schemes 2. New schemes in Horizon 20202. New schemes in Horizon 2020 3. National and regional dimension
  3. 3. Need for innovation schemes Focus: Connecting innovators across value chains to support adoption of emerging technologies in novel applications I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Innovation Schemes
  4. 4. Key targets: SMEs / Mid Caps 2. How to help them? 1. Who to target?
  5. 5. CONTENT 1. Need for innovation schemes 2. New schemes in Horizon 20202. New schemes in Horizon 2020 3. National and regional dimension
  6. 6. New innovation schemes in Horizon 2020 Connect innovators across value chains In a critical mass of experiments Specifically targeting SMEs & Mid Caps on demand- and supply-side Clustered around pan-EU I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Clustered around pan-EU networks of competence centres Flexible, light and SME-friendly implementation Open Calls Pilots started in FP7: ECHORD, More broadly applied now in Horizon 2020: Smart anything everywhere Compute-intensive embedded / cyber-physical systems
  7. 7. Focused innovation initiatives Modelling, Simulation, AnalyticsLaser-based manufacturing Focus: Fast adoption of a strategic selection of ICT technologies expected to have particularly high impact on the target sectors Example: I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Robotics Cyber-physical systems a Horizon 2020 initiative started in FP7 supported under the Factories of the Future PPP
  8. 8. Implementation a typical project Critical role of pan-EU network of competence centres Provide expertise and skills Broker/Facilitator across Value chains Regions Sectors I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Technology Transfer Dissemination / Multiplier Management (open calls, ) Critical mass of experiments Industrial Cross value chain Flexible partnerships Share lessons learnt not IPRs
  9. 9. Application experiments an example HPC-Cloud based Simulation Services for SMEs SME first-time users of simulation codes Innovation centres/clusters Actors Users: One-stop- shopping access to simulation services including expertise and cloud resources Innovation I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Commercial cloud providers Cloud and parallelisation experts Application experts Established simulation code providers HPC resource providers SW Suppliers: SW porting on the cloud, experimenting new business models HPC resource providers: Establish a commercially sustainable European cloud of HPC resources
  10. 10. Networking across projects Critical role of innovation multipliers Exploit synergies across projects Link to innovation networks (e.g. Entreprise Europe networks) Innovation I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE (e.g. Entreprise Europe networks) Provide services to projects (e.g. web portal, corporate identity) Dissemination / brokerage events (e.g. this one) Multipliers
  11. 11. Networking across projects - example Example: Robotics APPOLO LASHARE INTEFIX I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Robotics HPC-Cloud-based Simulation Lasers and sensors 77M EU funding over 3 years ~150 experiments 50% of partners SMEs/mid caps Balanced supply demand side Gate FORTISSIMO CLOUD-FLOW CLOUD-SME EuRoC
  12. 12. CONTENT 1. Need for innovation schemes 2. New schemes in Horizon 20202. New schemes in Horizon 2020 3. National and regional dimension
  13. 13. How to better exploit the national and regional dimension in the future ? Hook competence centres in national ecosystems e.g . Industrie 4.0, Catapult Link to regions: smart specialisation Pool resources: ESIF, Launch satellite projects Complementing I4MS Satellite Projects I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Complementing I4MS Funded through local/ESIF resources Allow organic growth of ecosystems Less developed regions: Get access to technologies & competences for use in local industries Highly developed regions: "export" competences Satellite Projects Feasibility studies Best practice experiments Local dissemination Skills development Infrastructure provisioning
  14. 14. Concluding Remarks Plans for I4MS-like Innovation Measures under Horizon 2020: Smart anything everywhere Networks of embedded systems design centres: Work Programme 2014 Networks of computing application centres: Work Programme 2015 I4MS phase 2: Work Programme 2015 Issues to be addressed in future for discussion today: I4MS: FOSTERING DIGITAL INDUSTRIAL INNOVATION IN EUROPE Issues to be addressed in future for discussion today: Support pan-European platform building How to better root I4MS-like initiatives in national and regional ecosystems ? How to more systematically reach the target audience ? Is there a need for demonstration centers at programme level ? Link to smart specialization, e.g. in less developed regions ? Addressing the skills gap virtual value chains How to provide access to finance for successful SMEs ?
