FP7 People and Ideas Programmes

Both programmes will cover all scientific and technological research, so will also fund ICT related research

ICT Work Programme 2007-2008 of the Seventh Framework Programme
• A limited set of Challenges aiming at – overcoming technology roadblocks, and/or – systems targeting specific socioeconomic goals A Challenge is addressed through a limited set of Objectives that form the basis of Calls for Proposals An Objective is described in terms of – target outcome - in terms of characteristics – expected impact - in terms of industrial competitiveness, societal goal, technology progress etc. A total of 24 Objectives expressed within 7 Challenges

Future and Emerging Technologies (FET)

1. Network and service infrastructures

Network and service infrastructure
• Overall aim is to enable the emergence of network and service technologies opening up new application scearios and innovative business models • What is needed is investment will build on present Europe’s strength in telecommunications, eservices, security and media content
• Approach: to strengthen entreprises in Europe through the development of new technologies in networks, software and services.

Challenge 1

••• 9

Cognitive systems, Interaction, Robotics
• ICT systems should be able to respond intelligently to gaps in their knowledge and to situations that have not been specified in their design • Aim is to provide enabling technologies that apply across domains such as robotics and automation, sensing and process control, etc • It requires rethinking the way we engineer systems

Challenge 2

••• 10

Components, Systems, Engineering
Several of the key objectives are: • Integration and miniaturisation of chips and multi functional components offering high performance at low cost • To be at the forefront of nanoelectronics incl. systems-on-chip and systems-in-package design • To lead in photonic components and subsystems for lasers, lighting and image sensors • To develop future embedded software and computing systems that process, distribute and retrieve massive amounts of data and information – in real time

Challenge 3

••• 11

Digital libraries and Content
• Creation and management of intelligent content needs to be more effective Advances expected include: • Digital preservation services addressing the needs of memory institutions • New management and production tools making digital resources easier and more cost-effective to create and re-use • More creative approaches to content and knowledge • Enabling the mass-individualisation of learning experiences

Challenge 4

••• 12

Towards sustainable & personalised health
• The objective is to better serve patients and health professionals by making the most of technology to improve the quality, availability and effectiveness of care • Research should inter alia contain the rising cost of health systems, increase quality of care and improve patient safety • Approach is to focus strongly on three aspects:
– Personal health systems for monitoring and diagnosis – Patient safety and risk assessment – Virtual physiological human

Challenge 5

••• 13

ICT for Mobility and sustainable growth
• Intelligent vehicle systems • New mobility services • Access to shared data infrastructures and data management to monitor and react to environmental risks Expected Impact • Leadership of Europe’s automotive industry in intelligent vehicle systems • Europe should become world leader in energy efficiency • etc

Challenge 6

••• 14

Independent living and inclusion
Objectives: • To mainstream and radically improve accessibility and usability of new ICT solutions for people with disabilities • To innovate in assistive technologies for access to ICT by building on progress in emerging technologies • New ICT opportunities will help offset the impact of the ageing population and increase active participation in economy and society • To explore the potential of innovative communication to facilitate social inclusion

Challenge 7

••• 15

FP7 Calls
• FP7 is implemented through periodic Calls for Proposals: average two Calls per year • Calls are very competitive; only the best proposals are selected (Call 1 – ICT priority: 1836 props submitted, €6.9 bn requested; 318 props retained, €1.2 bn) • Evaluation by independent experts on set criteria:
– scientific and/or technological excellence (relevant to the topics addressed by the Call) – Quality and efficiency of the implementation and the management – Potential impact through the development, dissemination and use of project results

Participation Rules
Project Partners: legal entities contributing to project Minimum number:  3 European  1 (from any country) for support actions  International partners in addition to minimum number Special conditions for SICA: 2 European + 2 ICPC

FP7 ICT Work programme
• Needs to strike the balance between continuous support to Europe’s industrial and technological strongholds and promote areas where new opportunities are arising for Europe • Faithful to the FP7 • In line with the main ICT policy priorities defined in the i2010 initiative • Reflecting the input from the programme committee and advisory group, the European technology platforms, etc
••• 18


• JTI = Joint Technology Initiatives
– Long term public private research partnerships often resulting from the work of a technology platform – Each JTI combines private sector investment and national and European funding

• ETP = European Technology platforms
– Participants define -at European level- a common strategic research agenda, and addresses technological and non-technological issues for implementing it
