SPACE

 

1. The international cooperation is encouraged in different call under the SPACE programme. Will  the industrialized Third Countries (eg BRIC, Canada, United States among others) receive contribution by EC  (or they will be funded by their own countries)?

2. During the FP7, the European Commission signed an agreement for the “GMES DATA ACCESS - SPECIFICATIONS OF THE EARTH OBSERVATION NEEDS OVER THE PERIOD 2011-2013” . May I know if it has been confirmed for the H2020 programme (EO calls)?  

3. COMPET 3 (2014) and COMPET 4 (2014), should be implemented through Strategic Research Clusters (SRCs). What does this means?

SPACE

1. The international cooperation is encouraged in different call under the SPACE programme. Will  the industrialized Third Countries (eg BRIC, Canada, United States among others) receive contribution by EC  (or they will be funded by their own countries)?

 

The policy has changed as regards BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China). These countries are now considered to have advanced to such a level that they can compete with everyone else under the general rule which is that participation is welcome and that funding should be secured from "home".

Funding is also possible when countries or groups of countries are mentioned in the work programme, in which case funding will also be possible. For example COMPET-9 in WP 2014 where the following statement appears:  "international participation is encouraged, in particular with countries active in space exploration"

Such funding could also be provided for under bilateral agreements between the union and a 3rd country or an international organisation.

 

In exceptional cases, to be judged on a case-by-case basis, 3rd country funding could also be granted if deemed by the Commission to be essential for carrying out the project. This will only remain an exception and no guarantees can therefore be given.

2. During the FP7, the European Commission signed an agreement for the “GMES DATA ACCESS - SPECIFICATIONS OF THE EARTH OBSERVATION NEEDS OVER THE PERIOD 2011-2013” . May I know if it has been confirmed for the H2020 programme (EO calls)? 

EU research actions continue to be eligible for data access under the Copernicus programme. The list of FP7 projects given in §2.3 of “GMES DATA ACCESS - SPECIFICATIONS OF THE EARTH OBSERVATION NEEDS OVER THE PERIOD 2011-2013”  will be updated in due course to comprise future H2020 projects.

3. COMPET 3 (2014) and COMPET 4 (2014), should be implemented through Strategic Research Clusters (SRCs). What does this means?

SRCs will be implemented through a system of grants connected among them and consisting of a Programme Support Activity” (PSA) and of course Operational grants.

PSA: the main role of this PSA is to elaborate a roadmap and implementation plan for the whole SRC (referred to hereafter as the SRC roadmap) and provide advice on the calls for operational grants.

Operational grants:In future work programmes (2016 and beyond), and on the basis of this SRC roadmap and the PSA advice for the calls, the Commission is expected to publish calls for “operational grants”. The work programmes will determine whether they will be considered research and innovation grants (100%) or innovation grants (70%). The operational grants will address different technological challenges identified in the roadmap. The objective of this system of grants is that the expected results of each individual grant would, when taken together, achieve the overall objective of the SRC.
