Evaluation of ERC grant proposals: what to expect in 2024Show description

The 2024 ERC Work Programme is expected to be formally adopted in July 2023 and some of the planned changes that the ERC Scientific Council has proposed to introduce have been made public last December (evaluation forms and processes) and in March this year (new panels and lump sum funding). This announcement gives further detail on research assessment, the evaluation process, lump sum funding, as well as the tentative schedule of the upcoming grant competitions.  

Research assessment: focus on the project

The proposals for ERC grants will continue to be evaluated based on the sole criterion of scientific excellence. ERC panels will primarily evaluate the ground-breaking nature, ambition, and feasibility of the research project. At the same time, they will evaluate the intellectual capacity, creativity, and commitment of the applicant principal investigator, with a focus on the extent to which the applicant has the excellence and required scientific expertise to successfully execute the proposed project.  

Broad assessment of the applicant

The ERC Work Programme will no longer include detailed prescriptive profiles of principal investigators. In the application, the Curriculum Vitae and Track Record will be merged into one document of up to four pages. The applicant will be expected to include – apart from standard biographical information – a list of up to ten research outputs that demonstrate how they have advanced knowledge in their field, with an emphasis on more recent achievements, and a list of selected examples of significant peer recognition (for example, prizes). A short explanation of the significance of the selected outputs, the applicant’s role in producing each of them, and how the applicant has demonstrated their capacity to successfully carry out the proposed project can also be included. The applicant may also include relevant information on, for example, career breaks, unusual career paths, as well as any particularly noteworthy contributions to the research community. These will not in themselves be evaluated but are important to provide context to the evaluation panels when assessing the principal investigator’s research achievements and peer recognition in relation to their career stage.  

Evaluation procedure

In Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grants calls, ERC panels will be able to admit at most 44 proposals to step 2 of the evaluation. A distinction in the scoring at step 1 will be made between proposals obtaining a score of A and invited to step 2 of the evaluation, and proposals obtaining a score of A but not ranked among the 44 proposals admitted to step 2. A candidate whose proposal is scored A at step 1 of the evaluation, but not taken to interview, will be free to submit a proposal in the following year’s calls.

Lump sum funding in Advanced Grants

2024 Advanced Grants will be awarded as a single lump sum contribution for the entirety of the project, for a sum approved by the ERC panel. The payment of the lump sum will be based on the work carried out and reported, irrespective of the actual costs incurred for the project or the successful outcome of the project activities. Additional funding, for example to purchase major equipment or get access to research facilities, can be applied for and will be made part of the lump sum. Successful applicants will still be able to benefit from portability, meaning that they will be able to request to transfer their entire grant, or a part of it, to a new beneficiary, as has been the case under the funding based on the actual costs until 2023.

Candidaturas ao Concurso de Projetos I&D em todos os domínios científicos vão decorrer em novembroShow description

A FCT está empenhada em aumentar o orçamento disponível para o Concurso de Projetos de I&D em todos os domínios científicos de 2023, pelo que está a estabelecer sinergias com o PT2030 no sentido de poder alocar um montante de pelo menos 100 M€ ao financiamento deste programa de apoio a projetos, o que representa um aumento de 33% face aos concursos anteriores. A obtenção deste financiamento exige uma articulação do regulamento de projetos da FCT com o regulamento do PT2030, que está em preparação, pelo que a FCT decidiu adiar, para o período de 1 a 30 de novembro, a submissão de candidaturas ao Concurso de Projetos de I&D em todos os domínios científicos de 2023. Este adiamento permitirá ainda garantir a adoção de custos simplificados, o que se traduzirá numa maior eficácia na gestão do tempo dos investigadores. Nesta decisão foram consultadas diversas entidades representativas da comunidade científica, a quem a FCT agradece.

ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment ProgramShow description

FCT launched this Monday, June 19, a new axis of the ERC-Portugal program, called ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment. This is a peer review service that FCT will provide to researchers from the national scientific community who are in the preparation phase of applications to Calls of projects of the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment will follow international peer review best practices, in which the pre-assessment model will mirror ERC's assessment criteria and assessor profiles. This new program is intended to be an important tool to improve the quality of national proposals and their preparation processes. Its ultimate goal will be to increase the number of national applications to the ERC's Calls and a greater naturalization in the submission of proposals to this leading European research funding agency. Proposals will be evaluated according to the ERC evaluation criteria for the respective Call, and evaluations will be carried out by international experts, with profiles of high experience in evaluation processes, preferably as panel members at Calls ERC. This program will support submissions for the next Call ERC Starting Grants, with an application deadline on October 24, 2023. To this end, the first round of ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment proposals will run until 20 July 2023 (Thursday). Pre-Assessment reports will be sent to researchers by 25 September 2023, approximately one month before the end of the period for submission of proposals to Call ERC Starting Grants, in order to constitute an effective contribution to the completion of the application preparation process to be submitted to Call ERC. In order to guarantee the timely submission of reports to the researchers, the program's calendar model will be as follows: (i) submission of application proposals up to about 2 months before the ERC deadline for submission of applications; (ii) submission of pre-evaluations and reports to the researchers up to about one month of the same deadline.

ERC Scientific Council decides changes to the evaluation forms and processes for the 2024 callsShow description

During its December plenary meeting the ERC Scientific Council decided on changes to the ERC’s application forms and evaluation procedures for the 2024 calls. The current CV and Track Record templates will be combined and simplified and applicants will be able to add short narrative descriptions to explain the information provided. Applicants will also be invited to explain career breaks or unconventional career paths and to describe exceptional contributions to the research community. One effect of these changes is that the Profiles of the ERC Principal Investigators which appeared in previous Work Programmes will no longer be necessary. The Scientific Council has furthermore decided to explicitly weigh the project proposal more than the past achievements of the applicant during the evaluation. Full details will be found in the ERC Work Programme 2024 and the associated guidance documents. The Scientific Council recognises that maintaining the quality of the ERC’s evaluation is critical to its success and has always been prepared to adapt and update the ERC’s specific processes and procedures as necessary. Proposals will continue to be evaluated by peer review panels composed of leading scientists and scholars using the sole criterion of scientific excellence. In a related development, the Scientific Council also decided to sign the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment published in July this year.

EIC Pathfinder2023Show description

The EIC Pathfinder Open 2023 call will close on the 7th March 2023 17.00 (CET). With its Pathfinder programme the EIC supports the exploration of bold ideas for radically new technologies. It welcomes the high-risk / high gain and interdisciplinary cutting-edge science collaborations that underpin technological breakthroughs.  Pathfinder goes beyond what is already known. Visionary thinking can open up promising avenues towards powerful new technologies. Applicants participating in EIC Pathfinder projects are typically visionary scientists and entrepreneurial researchers from universities, research organisations, start-ups, high-tech SMEs or industrial stakeholders interested in technological research and innovation. Projects typically involve consortia of researchers and other partners from at least three different countries, but there are also opportunities for individual teams and small consortia (two partners). Grants of up to 3 to 4 million euro support early stage development of future technologies (e.g. various activities at low Technology Readiness Levels 1-3), up to proof of concept. Pathfinder projects can also receive additional funding for testing the innovation potential of their research outputs.

MSCA COFUND 2022Show description

Applicants submit proposals for new or existing doctoral or postdoctoral programmes with an impact on the enhancement of human resources in R&I at regional, national or international level. These programmes will be co-funded by MSCA COFUND. Proposed programmes can cover any research disciplines ("bottom-up"), but exceptionally can also focus on specific disciplines, notably when they are based on national or regional Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3 strategies). In this case, the range of covered disciplines should allow reasonable flexibility for the researchers to define their topic. Funding synergies with Cohesion policy funds and the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) are strongly encouraged[1],[2].

A Career Development Plan must be jointly established by the supervisor and each recruited researcher upon recruitment. In addition to research objectives, this Plan comprises the researcher's training and career needs, including training on transferable skills, teaching, planning for publications and participation in conferences and events aimed at opening science and research to citizens.

The Plan must be established at the beginning of the recruitment and should be revised (and updated where needed) within 18 months. COFUND takes the form of:

A) Doctoral programmes

Doctoral programmes offer research training activities to allow doctoral candidates to develop and broaden their skills and competences. They will lead to the award of a doctoral degree in at least one EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country. The training activities should be based on the EU Principles on Innovative Doctoral Training.

Substantial training modules, including digital ones, addressing key transferable skills and competences common to all fields and fostering the culture of Open Science, innovation and entrepreneurship will be supported. They will include, inter alia, training on the use of collaborative tools, opening access to publications and to research data, FAIR data management, public engagement and citizen science.

On top of compulsory international mobility, applicants are encouraged to include elements of cross-sectoral mobility and interdisciplinarity into their programmes. Collaboration with a wider set of associated partners, including from the non-academic sector, will be positively taken into account during the evaluation. These organisations may provide hosting or secondment opportunities or training modules in research or transferable skills. Particular attention is paid to the quality of supervision and mentoring arrangements as well as career guidance. The selection procedure for doctoral candidates must be open, transparent and merit-based, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice (to be widely advertised internationally, including on the EURAXESS[3] website) must include the minimum gross salary (not including employer’s social contributions) offered to the researcher.

B) Postdoctoral Programmes

Postdoctoral Programmes fund individual advanced research training and career development fellowships for postdoctoral researchers. The programmes should offer training to develop key transferable skills and competences common to all fields, foster innovation and entrepreneurship and promote and (where appropriate) reward Open Science practices (open access to publications and to research data, FAIR data management, public engagement and citizen science, etc.). Postdoctoral Programmes should have regular selection rounds following fixed deadlines or regular cut-off dates, allowing fair competition between researchers. The selections should be open, widely advertised (including on the EURAXESS website), competitive, merit-based and with a transparent international peer review, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice must include the minimum gross salary (not including employer’s social contributions) offered to the postdoctoral researcher. On top of compulsory international mobility, applicants are encouraged to include elements of cross-sectoral mobility and interdisciplinarity into their programmes. Researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic and the appropriate organisation to host them, fitting their individual needs.

MSCA Staff Exchanges 2022Show description

MSCA Staff Exchanges involve organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (including SMEs) from across the globe. Support is provided for international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of R&I staff leading to knowledge transfer between participating organisations. Mobility through secondments The organisations constituting the partnership contribute directly to the implementation of a joint R&I project by seconding and/or hosting eligible staff members. Such a project must explore activities that can be based on previous work but should go beyond and generate or strengthen long-term collaborations. Secondments must always take place between legal entities independent from each other. MSCA Staff Exchanges can address three dimensions of mobility: inter-sectoral, international and interdisciplinary. While exchanges between organisations within EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries should mainly be inter-sectoral, same-sector exchanges are also possible under the condition that they are interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinarity is not required for same-sector exchanges with non-associated Third Countries. Secondments between institutions established in non-associated Third Countries or within the same EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country are not eligible. The collaborative approach of MSCA Staff Exchanges should exploit complementary competences of the participating organisations and create synergies between them. The secondments should be essential to achieve the joint project’s R&I activities.

The project should inter alia enable networking activities and the organisation of workshops and conferences, to facilitate sharing of knowledge and testing of innovative approaches for specific R&I topics. Skills’ development For participating staff members, the project should offer new skills acquisition and career development perspectives. Participating organisations must ensure that the seconded staff are adequately mentored. Interdisciplinarity means the integration of information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts or theories from two or more scientific disciplines. These aspects will be assessed during the evaluation.

EIC Transition Open 2022 Show description

HORIZON-EIC-2022-TRANSITIONOPEN-01

ExpectedOutcome: EIC Transition aims at maturing both your technology and business idea thus increasing its technology and market readiness. The expected outcomes of an EIC Transition project are a) a technology that is demonstrated to be effective for its intended application and b) a business model, its initial validation and a business plan for its development to market. It is also expected that the intellectual property generated by your EIC Transition project is formally protected in an adequate way. For more details, see the WP 2022. Objective: This topic has no predefined thematic priorities and is open to proposals in any field of science, technology or application. For any chosen field, EIC Transition projects should address, in a balanced way, both technology and market/business development, possibly including iterative learning processes based on early customer or user feedback. These activities should include, subject to the level of maturity of the technology, a suitable mix of research, technology development and validation activities to increase the maturity of the technology beyond proof of principle to viable demonstrators of the technology in the intended field of application (i.e. up to Technology Readiness Level 5 or 6). The activities must in all cases address market readiness towards commercialisation and deployment (market research, business case, prospects for growth, intellectual property protection, competitor analysis etc.) and other relevant aspects of regulation, certification and standardisation, aimed at getting both the technology and the business idea investment-ready. Scope: EIC Transition funds innovation activities that go beyond the experimental proof of principle in laboratory. It supports both the maturation and validation of a novel technology from the lab to the relevant application environments (by making use of prototyping, formulation, models, user testing or other validation tests) as well as explorations and development of a sustainable business case and business model towards commercialisation. Expected Impact: At the end of the EIC Transition project, it should be ready for the next stage, which can be to apply for EIC Accelerator (if you are a SME, including start-ups or spin-offs), to seek other investors or sources of funding, to enter licensing or collaboration agreements with third parties, or other routes to market deployment. In case the project is not led by an SME or commercial partner, the formation and spin out of a new company can be included as part of the activities. It will be expected to describe the intended pathway and route to market in the proposal, and to specify milestones and KPIs during the implementation of your project to assess progress towards the market.

You should apply to this call if you are looking for support from EIC Pathfinder Open to realise an ambitious vision for radically new technology, with potential to create new markets and/or to address global challenges. EIC Pathfinder Open supports early stage development of such future technologies (e.g. various activities at low Technology Readiness Levels 1-4), based on high-risk/high-gain science-towards-technology breakthrough research (including ‘deep-tech’). This research must provide the foundations of the technology you are envisioning.

EIC Pathfinder Open may support your work, especially if it is highly risky: you may set out to try things that will not work; you may be faced with questions that nobody knows the answer to yet; you may realise that there are many aspects of the problem that you do not master. On the contrary, if the path you want to follow is incremental by nature or known, EIC Pathfinder Open will not support you.

Before applying you should verify that your proposal meets all the following essential characteristics (‘Gatekeepers’): Convincing long-term vision of a radically new technology that has the potential to have a transformative positive effect to our economy and society. Concrete, novel and ambitious science-towards-technology breakthrough, providing advancement towards the envisioned technology. High-risk/high-gain research approach and methodology, with concrete and plausible objectives.

1. Admissibility and eligibility conditions: This call is open for collaborative research.

STRATEGIC AUTONOMY IN DEVELOPING, DEPLOYING AND USING GLOBAL SPACE-BASED INFRASTRUCTURES, SERVICES, APPLICATIONS AND DATA 2022 (HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01)

Topic description

Expected Outcome:

Projects are expected to contribute to the following outcomes: Enable breakthroughs in technologies and scientific instrumentation for space science and exploration missions including those described in the Global Exploration Roadmap from the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG).

Validation of novel space/planetary robotic technologies and instrumentation through analogue tests. Increased collaboration of scientific, engineering and industrial teams both within and outside Europe across different domains.

To strengthen European scientific excellence and support the development of leading edge scientific and technologic research in Europe  Scope:

The development of innovative instrumentation (payload) and technologies enabling space science and exploration missions requires timely technology development associated with future space science and exploration missions, including robotic exploration technologies, early stage scientific instrumentation and component technologies for space resources utilisation and space observatories.

The development of new and innovative approaches, such as instruments for Cubesats and other small space platforms, including planetary entry probe, or the use of Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components is encouraged as long as it contributes to the implementation of space science and exploration missions with significant scientific outputs.

Advances are expected in support to on-site activities such as innovative measurement techniques, increased sensitivity, increased robustness, faster and more accurate data processing or in-situ sample and data analysis.

The proposed activities should target primarily European and European-led space science and exploration missions or international missions where the participation of European partners provides demonstrated added value in technological development and scientific output.

Space WeatherShow description

Space Weather TOPIC ID: HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01-62

Planned opening date 28 October 2021

Deadline date 16 February 2022 17:00:00 Brussels time

Budget 2022: 2 000 000 EUR

Topic description

Expected Outcome:

Commonly occurring space weather events (SWE) have the potential to affect the performance of critical space and ground infrastructure by disrupting operations and communications in multiple sectors of society. In addition, “extreme SWE” could have devastating societal and economic consequences with potential costs for disruptions and damages estimated in tens or even hundreds of billions of Euros. Space weather technological research for new precursor services: the worldwide goal of space weather activities should be to monitor and forecast SWE just like terrestrial weather. However, direct physical simulation is currently not achievable for an operational Sun to Earth system, due in part to the lack of measurements and to the complexity of the involved processes, as well as different timescales involved. Current space weather models are generally not capable of forecasting events over several days. A longer forecasting horizon would require access to data from new observation infrastructure coupled with new and improved modelling capabilities. Research and innovation activities should address application domains that may include space as well as terrestrial infrastructure. Proposals should include architectural concepts of possible European space weather services in relation to the application domains addressed and they should demonstrate complementarity to Space Weather services developed through the Space Situational Awareness component of the EU Space Programme. . Prepare Europe for a full exploitation of space weather data by a renewed effort on modelling and forecasting using currently available data. . Develop concepts to provide space weather data, forecasts and warnings with criteria on (timely) availability, harmonized (data) standards and quality control similar to the best-practices of meteorological services (as e.g. documented by the World Meteorological Organisation WMO). . Improve scientific understanding of the origin and evolution of space weather phenomena. . Improving SWE restitution and prediction capabilities using artificial intelligence / deep learning techniques. . Develop new services for both scientific purposes and terrestrial infrastructure monitoring. . Acceleration innovation of enabling technologies (maturing, prototyping, on ground tests including exploratory ground based instrumentations research) . Identified and matured concepts up to TRL 3-4

Scope:

New modelling including ab-initio simulations to understand fundamental Sun-Earth physical mechanisms and their sensitivity to parameter change for improved forecasting skills, and forecasting techniques capable of improving the restitution quality and extending the time horizon of a future space weather forecasting capability to several days. .

Proposals should address the development of modelling capabilities and/or the delivery of prototype services able to interpret a broad range of observations of the Sun’s corona and magnetic field, of the Sun-Earth interplanetary space and of the Earth magneto/iono/thermo-sphere coupling relying on existing observation capacities. .

Validate and harmonize the currently available data from existing services and identify gaps in data and model availability. .

Training of models using deep-learning techniques based on existing large aggregated databases from space measurements.

. Inventory of potential early indicators of extreme space weather events.

. Complementary and coherent activities with the ESA on-going or future activities in particular those decided at the last ESA Ministerial held in November 2019. .

On ground demonstration tests .

Ground instruments: densification of ground instrument networks and development/improvement of new instrument concepts .

Complementary and coherent activities with existing space weather services with a significant involvement of European and national scientific institutions and stakeholders.

Open Science month in NOVA FCSH: Info Session “Open Science in Horizon Europe”Show description

Speaker: Alea López de San Román – Policy Officer, Unit Open Science, Directorate General for Research and Innovation, European Commission Target audience: open to the R&I community (Researchers, Research managers, Librarians, etc.) Open science is a policy priority for the European Commission and the standard approach to academic research under the new Framework Programme Horizon Europe, as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research. When researchers share knowledge and data as early as possible in the research process with all relevant actors it helps diffuse the latest knowledge. And when partners from across academia, industry, public authorities and citizen groups are invited to participate in the research and innovation process, creativity and trust in science increases. What novelties can we find in Horizon Europe regarding Open Science? What new practices evaluators will look for in their evaluation? What rules and obligations are set in the new model agreement? Alea López, from the Open Science unit of the European Commission, will discuss these and other issues, particularly relevant to all researchers and research managers aiming to submit and manage projects under Horizon Europe.

European Researchers' Night 2022-2023Show description

European Researchers' Night 2022-2023 Open for submission Programme Horizon Europe (HORIZON) ID HORIZON-MSCA-2022-CITIZENS-01-01 Types of action HORIZON Coordination and Support Actions Deadline model single-stage Opening date 22 June 2021 Deadline date 07 October 2021 17:00:00 Brussels time ExpectedOutcome: Project results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes: For researchers Enhanced opportunities to interact with citizens and local, regional and national authorities; Improved communication skills and competences to interact with a non-research audience, notably with pupils and students. For organisations Increased reputation and visibility of participating organisations in terms of hosting excellence research projects towards the general public and possible future students; Researchers’ work made more tangible, concrete, accessible, and thus opening research and science to all; Improved outreach to all audiences, and notably those who do not have an easy access to science and research activities; Better communication of R&I results and activities to society, increased and strengthened opportunities for citizens’ engagement. Scope: The European Researchers' Night takes place every year, on the last Friday of September[1]. It supports events that can last up to two days: they can start on Friday and continue the following day. Pre-events, prior to the main event, and related post-events, such as wrap-up meetings or small-scale follow-up events, can also be organised. It is the occasion for a Europe-wide public and media event for the promotion of research careers, in particular focused on young people and their families. The European Researchers’ Night targets the general public, addressing and attracting people regardless of the level of their scientific background, with a special focus on families, pupils and students, and notably those who do not have easy access to, and thus are less inclined to engage in STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) or research activities. The European Researchers’ Night will also bring researchers to schools to interact with pupils at any time during the project duration. The Researchers at Schools activities will allow researchers and pupils to interact on societal challenges and on the key role of research to address them. Pupils will thus also learn directly about research projects and initiatives related to EU main priorities.

Through the implementation of an original and personalised research project, MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships aim to foster excellence through training and mobility and to equip researchers with new skills and competences in order to identify solutions to current and future challenges. Postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to reach out to society at large to make the results of their research visible to citizens. Fellowships will be provided to excellent researchers, undertaking international mobility either to or between EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries, as well as to non-associated Third Countries. Applications will be made jointly by the researcher and a beneficiary in the academic or non-academic sector. Postdoctoral Fellowships either can take place in Europe (i.e. in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country) or in a Third Country not associated to Horizon Europe: European Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to researchers of any nationality who wish to engage in R&I projects by either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. The standard duration of these fellowships must be between 12 and 24 months. Global Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to European nationals or long-term residents[1] who wish to engage in R&I projects with organisations outside EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries. These fellowships require an outgoing phase of minimum 12 and maximum 24 months in a non-associated Third Country, and a mandatory 12-month return phase to a host organisation based in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country.

EIC Transition Open 2022 ExpectedOutcome: EIC Transition aims at maturing both your technology and business idea thus increasing its technology and market readiness. The expected outcomes of an EIC Transition project are a) a technology that is demonstrated to be effective for its intended application and b) a business model, its initial validation and a business plan for its development to market. It is also expected that the intellectual property generated by your EIC Transition project is formally protected in an adequate way. For more details, see the WP 2022. Objective: This topic has no predefined thematic priorities and is open to proposals in any field of science, technology or application. For any chosen field, EIC Transition projects should address, in a balanced way, both technology and market/business development, possibly including iterative learning processes based on early customer or user feedback. These activities should include, subject to the level of maturity of the technology, a suitable mix of research, technology development and validation activities to increase the maturity of the technology beyond proof of principle to viable demonstrators of the technology in the intended field of application (i.e. up to Technology Readiness Level 5 or 6). The activities must in all cases address market readiness towards commercialisation and deployment (market research, business case, prospects for growth, intellectual property protection, competitor analysis etc.) and other relevant aspects of regulation, certification and standardisation, aimed at getting both the technology and the business idea investment-ready. Scope: EIC Transition funds innovation activities that go beyond the experimental proof of principle in laboratory. It supports both the maturation and validation of a novel technology from the lab to the relevant application environments (by making use of prototyping, formulation, models, user testing or other validation tests) as well as explorations and development of a sustainable business case and business model towards commercialisation. Expected Impact: At the end of the EIC Transition project, it should be ready for the next stage, which can be to apply for EIC Accelerator (if you are a SME, including start-ups or spin-offs), to seek other investors or sources of funding, to enter licensing or collaboration agreements with third parties, or other routes to market deployment. In case the project is not led by an SME or commercial partner, the formation and spin out of a new company can be included as part of the activities. It will be expected to describe the intended pathway and route to market in the proposal, and to specify milestones and KPIs during the implementation of your project to assess progress towards the market. 2022-03-01 2022-09-28

link Evaluation of ERC grant proposals: what to expect in 2024

The 2024 ERC Work Programme is expected to be formally adopted in July 2023 and some of the planned changes that the ERC Scientific Council has proposed to introduce have been made public last December (evaluation forms and processes) and in March this year (new panels and lump sum funding). This announcement gives further detail on research assessment, the evaluation process, lump sum funding, as well as the tentative schedule of the upcoming grant competitions.  

Research assessment: focus on the project

The proposals for ERC grants will continue to be evaluated based on the sole criterion of scientific excellence. ERC panels will primarily evaluate the ground-breaking nature, ambition, and feasibility of the research project. At the same time, they will evaluate the intellectual capacity, creativity, and commitment of the applicant principal investigator, with a focus on the extent to which the applicant has the excellence and required scientific expertise to successfully execute the proposed project.  

Broad assessment of the applicant

The ERC Work Programme will no longer include detailed prescriptive profiles of principal investigators. In the application, the Curriculum Vitae and Track Record will be merged into one document of up to four pages. The applicant will be expected to include – apart from standard biographical information – a list of up to ten research outputs that demonstrate how they have advanced knowledge in their field, with an emphasis on more recent achievements, and a list of selected examples of significant peer recognition (for example, prizes). A short explanation of the significance of the selected outputs, the applicant’s role in producing each of them, and how the applicant has demonstrated their capacity to successfully carry out the proposed project can also be included. The applicant may also include relevant information on, for example, career breaks, unusual career paths, as well as any particularly noteworthy contributions to the research community. These will not in themselves be evaluated but are important to provide context to the evaluation panels when assessing the principal investigator’s research achievements and peer recognition in relation to their career stage.  

Evaluation procedure

In Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grants calls, ERC panels will be able to admit at most 44 proposals to step 2 of the evaluation. A distinction in the scoring at step 1 will be made between proposals obtaining a score of A and invited to step 2 of the evaluation, and proposals obtaining a score of A but not ranked among the 44 proposals admitted to step 2. A candidate whose proposal is scored A at step 1 of the evaluation, but not taken to interview, will be free to submit a proposal in the following year’s calls.

Lump sum funding in Advanced Grants

2024 Advanced Grants will be awarded as a single lump sum contribution for the entirety of the project, for a sum approved by the ERC panel. The payment of the lump sum will be based on the work carried out and reported, irrespective of the actual costs incurred for the project or the successful outcome of the project activities. Additional funding, for example to purchase major equipment or get access to research facilities, can be applied for and will be made part of the lump sum. Successful applicants will still be able to benefit from portability, meaning that they will be able to request to transfer their entire grant, or a part of it, to a new beneficiary, as has been the case under the funding based on the actual costs until 2023.

FCT launched this Monday, June 19, a new axis of the ERC-Portugal program, called ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment. This is a peer review service that FCT will provide to researchers from the national scientific community who are in the preparation phase of applications to Calls of projects of the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment will follow international peer review best practices, in which the pre-assessment model will mirror ERC's assessment criteria and assessor profiles. This new program is intended to be an important tool to improve the quality of national proposals and their preparation processes. Its ultimate goal will be to increase the number of national applications to the ERC's Calls and a greater naturalization in the submission of proposals to this leading European research funding agency. Proposals will be evaluated according to the ERC evaluation criteria for the respective Call, and evaluations will be carried out by international experts, with profiles of high experience in evaluation processes, preferably as panel members at Calls ERC. This program will support submissions for the next Call ERC Starting Grants, with an application deadline on October 24, 2023. To this end, the first round of ERC Portugal Pre-Assessment proposals will run until 20 July 2023 (Thursday). Pre-Assessment reports will be sent to researchers by 25 September 2023, approximately one month before the end of the period for submission of proposals to Call ERC Starting Grants, in order to constitute an effective contribution to the completion of the application preparation process to be submitted to Call ERC. In order to guarantee the timely submission of reports to the researchers, the program's calendar model will be as follows: (i) submission of application proposals up to about 2 months before the ERC deadline for submission of applications; (ii) submission of pre-evaluations and reports to the researchers up to about one month of the same deadline.

ERC Scientific Council decides changes to the evaluation forms and processes for the 2024 calls

During its December plenary meeting the ERC Scientific Council decided on changes to the ERC’s application forms and evaluation procedures for the 2024 calls. The current CV and Track Record templates will be combined and simplified and applicants will be able to add short narrative descriptions to explain the information provided. Applicants will also be invited to explain career breaks or unconventional career paths and to describe exceptional contributions to the research community. One effect of these changes is that the Profiles of the ERC Principal Investigators which appeared in previous Work Programmes will no longer be necessary. The Scientific Council has furthermore decided to explicitly weigh the project proposal more than the past achievements of the applicant during the evaluation. Full details will be found in the ERC Work Programme 2024 and the associated guidance documents. The Scientific Council recognises that maintaining the quality of the ERC’s evaluation is critical to its success and has always been prepared to adapt and update the ERC’s specific processes and procedures as necessary. Proposals will continue to be evaluated by peer review panels composed of leading scientists and scholars using the sole criterion of scientific excellence. In a related development, the Scientific Council also decided to sign the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment published in July this year.

link link EIC Pathfinder2023 The EIC Pathfinder Open 2023 call will close on the 7th March 2023 17.00 (CET). With its Pathfinder programme the EIC supports the exploration of bold ideas for radically new technologies. It welcomes the high-risk / high gain and interdisciplinary cutting-edge science collaborations that underpin technological breakthroughs.  Pathfinder goes beyond what is already known. Visionary thinking can open up promising avenues towards powerful new technologies. Applicants participating in EIC Pathfinder projects are typically visionary scientists and entrepreneurial researchers from universities, research organisations, start-ups, high-tech SMEs or industrial stakeholders interested in technological research and innovation. Projects typically involve consortia of researchers and other partners from at least three different countries, but there are also opportunities for individual teams and small consortia (two partners). Grants of up to 3 to 4 million euro support early stage development of future technologies (e.g. various activities at low Technology Readiness Levels 1-3), up to proof of concept. Pathfinder projects can also receive additional funding for testing the innovation potential of their research outputs. 2022-12-07 2023-03-07
link MSCA COFUND 2022

Applicants submit proposals for new or existing doctoral or postdoctoral programmes with an impact on the enhancement of human resources in R&I at regional, national or international level. These programmes will be co-funded by MSCA COFUND. Proposed programmes can cover any research disciplines ("bottom-up"), but exceptionally can also focus on specific disciplines, notably when they are based on national or regional Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation (RIS3 strategies). In this case, the range of covered disciplines should allow reasonable flexibility for the researchers to define their topic. Funding synergies with Cohesion policy funds and the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) are strongly encouraged[1],[2].

A Career Development Plan must be jointly established by the supervisor and each recruited researcher upon recruitment. In addition to research objectives, this Plan comprises the researcher's training and career needs, including training on transferable skills, teaching, planning for publications and participation in conferences and events aimed at opening science and research to citizens.

The Plan must be established at the beginning of the recruitment and should be revised (and updated where needed) within 18 months. COFUND takes the form of:

A) Doctoral programmes

Doctoral programmes offer research training activities to allow doctoral candidates to develop and broaden their skills and competences. They will lead to the award of a doctoral degree in at least one EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country. The training activities should be based on the EU Principles on Innovative Doctoral Training.

Substantial training modules, including digital ones, addressing key transferable skills and competences common to all fields and fostering the culture of Open Science, innovation and entrepreneurship will be supported. They will include, inter alia, training on the use of collaborative tools, opening access to publications and to research data, FAIR data management, public engagement and citizen science.

On top of compulsory international mobility, applicants are encouraged to include elements of cross-sectoral mobility and interdisciplinarity into their programmes. Collaboration with a wider set of associated partners, including from the non-academic sector, will be positively taken into account during the evaluation. These organisations may provide hosting or secondment opportunities or training modules in research or transferable skills. Particular attention is paid to the quality of supervision and mentoring arrangements as well as career guidance. The selection procedure for doctoral candidates must be open, transparent and merit-based, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice (to be widely advertised internationally, including on the EURAXESS[3] website) must include the minimum gross salary (not including employer’s social contributions) offered to the researcher.

B) Postdoctoral Programmes

Postdoctoral Programmes fund individual advanced research training and career development fellowships for postdoctoral researchers. The programmes should offer training to develop key transferable skills and competences common to all fields, foster innovation and entrepreneurship and promote and (where appropriate) reward Open Science practices (open access to publications and to research data, FAIR data management, public engagement and citizen science, etc.). Postdoctoral Programmes should have regular selection rounds following fixed deadlines or regular cut-off dates, allowing fair competition between researchers. The selections should be open, widely advertised (including on the EURAXESS website), competitive, merit-based and with a transparent international peer review, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice must include the minimum gross salary (not including employer’s social contributions) offered to the postdoctoral researcher. On top of compulsory international mobility, applicants are encouraged to include elements of cross-sectoral mobility and interdisciplinarity into their programmes. Researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic and the appropriate organisation to host them, fitting their individual needs.

link MSCA Staff Exchanges 2022

MSCA Staff Exchanges involve organisations from the academic and non-academic sectors (including SMEs) from across the globe. Support is provided for international, inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary mobility of R&I staff leading to knowledge transfer between participating organisations. Mobility through secondments The organisations constituting the partnership contribute directly to the implementation of a joint R&I project by seconding and/or hosting eligible staff members. Such a project must explore activities that can be based on previous work but should go beyond and generate or strengthen long-term collaborations. Secondments must always take place between legal entities independent from each other. MSCA Staff Exchanges can address three dimensions of mobility: inter-sectoral, international and interdisciplinary. While exchanges between organisations within EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries should mainly be inter-sectoral, same-sector exchanges are also possible under the condition that they are interdisciplinary. Interdisciplinarity is not required for same-sector exchanges with non-associated Third Countries. Secondments between institutions established in non-associated Third Countries or within the same EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country are not eligible. The collaborative approach of MSCA Staff Exchanges should exploit complementary competences of the participating organisations and create synergies between them. The secondments should be essential to achieve the joint project’s R&I activities.

The project should inter alia enable networking activities and the organisation of workshops and conferences, to facilitate sharing of knowledge and testing of innovative approaches for specific R&I topics. Skills’ development For participating staff members, the project should offer new skills acquisition and career development perspectives. Participating organisations must ensure that the seconded staff are adequately mentored. Interdisciplinarity means the integration of information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts or theories from two or more scientific disciplines. These aspects will be assessed during the evaluation.

MSCA Doctoral Networks will implement doctoral programmes, by partnerships of universities, research institutions and research infrastructures, businesses including SMEs, and other socio-economic actors from different countries across Europe and beyond. MSCA Doctoral Networks are indeed open to the participation of organisations from third countries, in view of fostering strategic international partnerships for the training and exchange of researchers. These doctoral programmes will respond to well-identified needs in various R&I areas, expose the researchers to the academic and non-academic sectors, and offer training in research-related, as well as transferable skills and competences relevant for innovation and long-term employability (e.g. entrepreneurship, commercialisation of results, Intellectual Property Rights, communication). Proposals for doctoral networks can reflect existing or planned research partnerships among the participating organisations.

The selection procedure for doctoral candidates must be open, transparent and merit-based, in line with the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The vacancy notice (to be widely advertised internationally, including on the EURAXESS website) must include the gross salary (not including employer’s social contributions) offered to the researcher. MSCA Doctoral Networks are encouraged to lead to Industrial or Joint Doctorates. The MSCA Doctoral Networks aim to train creative, entrepreneurial, innovative and resilient doctoral candidates, able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit. The MSCA Doctoral Networks will raise the attractiveness and excellence of doctoral training in Europe. They will equip researchers with the right combination of research-related and transferable competences and provide them with enhanced career perspectives in both the academic and non-academic sectors through international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set.

EIC Transition Open 2022 ExpectedOutcome: EIC Transition aims at maturing both your technology and business idea thus increasing its technology and market readiness. The expected outcomes of an EIC Transition project are a) a technology that is demonstrated to be effective for its intended application and b) a business model, its initial validation and a business plan for its development to market. It is also expected that the intellectual property generated by your EIC Transition project is formally protected in an adequate way. For more details, see the WP 2022. Objective: This topic has no predefined thematic priorities and is open to proposals in any field of science, technology or application. For any chosen field, EIC Transition projects should address, in a balanced way, both technology and market/business development, possibly including iterative learning processes based on early customer or user feedback. These activities should include, subject to the level of maturity of the technology, a suitable mix of research, technology development and validation activities to increase the maturity of the technology beyond proof of principle to viable demonstrators of the technology in the intended field of application (i.e. up to Technology Readiness Level 5 or 6). The activities must in all cases address market readiness towards commercialisation and deployment (market research, business case, prospects for growth, intellectual property protection, competitor analysis etc.) and other relevant aspects of regulation, certification and standardisation, aimed at getting both the technology and the business idea investment-ready. Scope: EIC Transition funds innovation activities that go beyond the experimental proof of principle in laboratory. It supports both the maturation and validation of a novel technology from the lab to the relevant application environments (by making use of prototyping, formulation, models, user testing or other validation tests) as well as explorations and development of a sustainable business case and business model towards commercialisation. Expected Impact: At the end of the EIC Transition project, it should be ready for the next stage, which can be to apply for EIC Accelerator (if you are a SME, including start-ups or spin-offs), to seek other investors or sources of funding, to enter licensing or collaboration agreements with third parties, or other routes to market deployment. In case the project is not led by an SME or commercial partner, the formation and spin out of a new company can be included as part of the activities. It will be expected to describe the intended pathway and route to market in the proposal, and to specify milestones and KPIs during the implementation of your project to assess progress towards the market. 2022-03-01 2022-09-28

Space science and exploration technologies - TOPIC ID: HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01-82

STRATEGIC AUTONOMY IN DEVELOPING, DEPLOYING AND USING GLOBAL SPACE-BASED INFRASTRUCTURES, SERVICES, APPLICATIONS AND DATA 2022 (HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01)

Topic description

Expected Outcome:

Projects are expected to contribute to the following outcomes: Enable breakthroughs in technologies and scientific instrumentation for space science and exploration missions including those described in the Global Exploration Roadmap from the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG).

Validation of novel space/planetary robotic technologies and instrumentation through analogue tests. Increased collaboration of scientific, engineering and industrial teams both within and outside Europe across different domains.

To strengthen European scientific excellence and support the development of leading edge scientific and technologic research in Europe  Scope:

The development of innovative instrumentation (payload) and technologies enabling space science and exploration missions requires timely technology development associated with future space science and exploration missions, including robotic exploration technologies, early stage scientific instrumentation and component technologies for space resources utilisation and space observatories.

The development of new and innovative approaches, such as instruments for Cubesats and other small space platforms, including planetary entry probe, or the use of Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components is encouraged as long as it contributes to the implementation of space science and exploration missions with significant scientific outputs.

Advances are expected in support to on-site activities such as innovative measurement techniques, increased sensitivity, increased robustness, faster and more accurate data processing or in-situ sample and data analysis.

The proposed activities should target primarily European and European-led space science and exploration missions or international missions where the participation of European partners provides demonstrated added value in technological development and scientific output.

In this topic the integration of the gender dimension (sex and gender analysis) in research and innovation content is not a mandatory requirement.

Space Weather

Space Weather TOPIC ID: HORIZON-CL4-2022-SPACE-01-62

Planned opening date 28 October 2021

Deadline date 16 February 2022 17:00:00 Brussels time

Budget 2022: 2 000 000 EUR

Topic description

Expected Outcome:

Commonly occurring space weather events (SWE) have the potential to affect the performance of critical space and ground infrastructure by disrupting operations and communications in multiple sectors of society. In addition, “extreme SWE” could have devastating societal and economic consequences with potential costs for disruptions and damages estimated in tens or even hundreds of billions of Euros. Space weather technological research for new precursor services: the worldwide goal of space weather activities should be to monitor and forecast SWE just like terrestrial weather. However, direct physical simulation is currently not achievable for an operational Sun to Earth system, due in part to the lack of measurements and to the complexity of the involved processes, as well as different timescales involved. Current space weather models are generally not capable of forecasting events over several days. A longer forecasting horizon would require access to data from new observation infrastructure coupled with new and improved modelling capabilities. Research and innovation activities should address application domains that may include space as well as terrestrial infrastructure. Proposals should include architectural concepts of possible European space weather services in relation to the application domains addressed and they should demonstrate complementarity to Space Weather services developed through the Space Situational Awareness component of the EU Space Programme. . Prepare Europe for a full exploitation of space weather data by a renewed effort on modelling and forecasting using currently available data. . Develop concepts to provide space weather data, forecasts and warnings with criteria on (timely) availability, harmonized (data) standards and quality control similar to the best-practices of meteorological services (as e.g. documented by the World Meteorological Organisation WMO). . Improve scientific understanding of the origin and evolution of space weather phenomena. . Improving SWE restitution and prediction capabilities using artificial intelligence / deep learning techniques. . Develop new services for both scientific purposes and terrestrial infrastructure monitoring. . Acceleration innovation of enabling technologies (maturing, prototyping, on ground tests including exploratory ground based instrumentations research) . Identified and matured concepts up to TRL 3-4

Scope:

New modelling including ab-initio simulations to understand fundamental Sun-Earth physical mechanisms and their sensitivity to parameter change for improved forecasting skills, and forecasting techniques capable of improving the restitution quality and extending the time horizon of a future space weather forecasting capability to several days. .

Proposals should address the development of modelling capabilities and/or the delivery of prototype services able to interpret a broad range of observations of the Sun’s corona and magnetic field, of the Sun-Earth interplanetary space and of the Earth magneto/iono/thermo-sphere coupling relying on existing observation capacities. .

Validate and harmonize the currently available data from existing services and identify gaps in data and model availability. .

Training of models using deep-learning techniques based on existing large aggregated databases from space measurements.

. Inventory of potential early indicators of extreme space weather events.

. Complementary and coherent activities with the ESA on-going or future activities in particular those decided at the last ESA Ministerial held in November 2019. .

On ground demonstration tests .

Ground instruments: densification of ground instrument networks and development/improvement of new instrument concepts .

Complementary and coherent activities with existing space weather services with a significant involvement of European and national scientific institutions and stakeholders.

link Open Science month in NOVA FCSH: Info Session “Open Science in Horizon Europe” Speaker: Alea López de San Román – Policy Officer, Unit Open Science, Directorate General for Research and Innovation, European Commission Target audience: open to the R&I community (Researchers, Research managers, Librarians, etc.) Open science is a policy priority for the European Commission and the standard approach to academic research under the new Framework Programme Horizon Europe, as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of research. When researchers share knowledge and data as early as possible in the research process with all relevant actors it helps diffuse the latest knowledge. And when partners from across academia, industry, public authorities and citizen groups are invited to participate in the research and innovation process, creativity and trust in science increases. What novelties can we find in Horizon Europe regarding Open Science? What new practices evaluators will look for in their evaluation? What rules and obligations are set in the new model agreement? Alea López, from the Open Science unit of the European Commission, will discuss these and other issues, particularly relevant to all researchers and research managers aiming to submit and manage projects under Horizon Europe.

European Researchers' Night 2022-2023 European Researchers' Night 2022-2023 Open for submission Programme Horizon Europe (HORIZON) ID HORIZON-MSCA-2022-CITIZENS-01-01 Types of action HORIZON Coordination and Support Actions Deadline model single-stage Opening date 22 June 2021 Deadline date 07 October 2021 17:00:00 Brussels time ExpectedOutcome: Project results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes: For researchers Enhanced opportunities to interact with citizens and local, regional and national authorities; Improved communication skills and competences to interact with a non-research audience, notably with pupils and students. For organisations Increased reputation and visibility of participating organisations in terms of hosting excellence research projects towards the general public and possible future students; Researchers’ work made more tangible, concrete, accessible, and thus opening research and science to all; Improved outreach to all audiences, and notably those who do not have an easy access to science and research activities; Better communication of R&I results and activities to society, increased and strengthened opportunities for citizens’ engagement. Scope: The European Researchers' Night takes place every year, on the last Friday of September[1]. It supports events that can last up to two days: they can start on Friday and continue the following day. Pre-events, prior to the main event, and related post-events, such as wrap-up meetings or small-scale follow-up events, can also be organised. It is the occasion for a Europe-wide public and media event for the promotion of research careers, in particular focused on young people and their families. The European Researchers’ Night targets the general public, addressing and attracting people regardless of the level of their scientific background, with a special focus on families, pupils and students, and notably those who do not have easy access to, and thus are less inclined to engage in STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) or research activities. The European Researchers’ Night will also bring researchers to schools to interact with pupils at any time during the project duration. The Researchers at Schools activities will allow researchers and pupils to interact on societal challenges and on the key role of research to address them. Pupils will thus also learn directly about research projects and initiatives related to EU main priorities. 2021-06-22 2021-10-07
