Ideal-ist Workshop:
Contractual Public Private Partnerships - a Vision for the Future  
When: 9 November 2017, 14:00-15:30

Contractual Public Private Partnerships (cPPPs) are cornerstones for Europe´s aim of maintaining and developing leading technologies. The roadmaps of cPPPs encourage innovation in Europe and strongly influence European research funding.

Participants in the workshop will gain insight into cPPPs´ new priorities for the upcoming ICT LEIT work programme. To also tackle the future perspectives, there will be a discussion on what role technology development could play in the next framework programme. The EC perspective will be a part of the discussion.

Workshop attendees are invited to contribute to the session by asking questions.

Representatives from 5G, Cybersecurity, Photonics, HPC, Robotics, Big Data and Factories of the Future will participate in the workshop panel.

The workshop will provide additional information to the individual conference sessions (work programme call topics are not being addressed).

Target group: policy makers, proposers who are active in the related thematic fields and who are interested in the future role of key technologies , NCPs

Ideal-ist Workshop:
Innovation & Impact – Time to Deliver
Lessons learned from Horizon 2020 implementation

When: 9 November 2017, 16:00-17:30

Horizon 2020 has challenged European academic and industrial communities to a change of mindset: putting innovation & impact in focus. This Ideal-ist workshop will follow-up on the discussions launched at the highly successful Ideal-ist workshop in the early years of H2020. It will bring together a diverse set experts - the European Commission, expert evaluators, and successful coordinators - for an exchange of experience on how to tackle innovation and impact in a proposal, and how to deliver the promises in the project. While these two areas have challenged proposers in the first calls of Horizon 2020, the first funded projects are now reaching the phase to deliver. The panel discussion will address how to set targets, what approaches have worked, and what difficulties have been encountered along this journey.

The results of this interactive discussion will help:
• Potential proposers to understand how innovation and impact are being evaluated
• Project participants heading towards exploitation activities
• National Contact Points in giving advice to proposers

• Welcome and introduction
• Evaluation criteria: with special emphasis on innovation and impact – how has our understanding evolved
• Innovation & impact: how to tackle it in a proposal
• Case studies: how to deliver impact
• Panel discussion

Registration: not required.

Ideal-ist Workshop:
Cascading Grants in Horizon 2020
When: 10 November 2017, 14:00-15:30

Financial Support to Third Parties (FSTP) – also known as Cascading Grants – can be found in topics from platforms and pilots, digital innovation hubs, to FET flagships. And it doesn't stop there: I4MS, SAE, IoT-EPI, FIRE, and more. Complex terms, a multitude of initiatives, yet so many opportunities!

But what do these mean in practice? In simplified terms, they describe an opportunity offered in many Horizon 2020 topics for consortia that want to reach out and involve new actors in their research and innovation process: the consortia launch open calls for third parties; third parties apply, receive funding and other forms of support, and engage with a European network. This process contributes to knowledge transfer and exploitation, take-up of technologies, and building and scaling ecosystems in these areas. The process engages competence centres and SMEs, builds academy-industry collaborations, and brings user requirements to the core.

Cascading grants are increasingly used to achieve these objectives throughout ICT in H2020, and beyond. Ideal-ist invites you to exchange good practices on FTSP activities and how to maximise the benefits such measures offer.

This workshop will bring together:

Practitioners of cascading grants to discuss the opportunities and challenges they have faced in implementing such measures.
Actors who have applied and benefited from open calls of these initiatives, beyond the financial support itself
Those interested in forming consortia for upcoming FSTP calls in Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020
Actors looking for help to navigate this complex landscape of funding opportunities
The session will also raise awareness of upcoming FSTP calls in Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020, as well as opportunities to apply to ongoing FSTP project's calls.
