Topic DescriptionSpecific Challenge:
The challenge is to create the conditions for optimised cooperation opportunities between the European and the Chinese research and innovation ecosystems including standardisation, in particular for key strategic domains where global approaches, interoperability and standards are sought like IoT and 5G. It includes the identification of practical opportunities for future cooperation on a reciprocal basis.Scope:
The scope of the work is of analytical nature, and requires a good understanding of both the Chinese and European models for research support, standardisation support, and lead market introduction. The work targets the analysis of the Chinese research/standardisation/innovation ecosystems, of their main partners and conditions of contributions and participation for foreign companies, including the legal environment. It includes a comparative analysis with the European research systems, and further identifies key CN national projects, that could form the basis of joint EU-CN collaborations. These activities are complemented with roadmapping activities for EU-CN cooperation in the specific domains of 5G and IoT.
The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of around EUR 1 million would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.Expected Impact:
- Identification of opportunities of EU-CN technological cooperation in strategic sectors and associated road-mapping, including support for technical and policy cooperation between EU-CN IoT or 5G Large Scale Pilots of common interest.
- Comparative analysis of EU-CN Research and innovation ecosystems and conditions of win-win participation.

- Additional provisions:
Horizon 2020 budget flexibility
- Open access must be granted to all scientific publications resulting from Horizon 2020 actions, and proposals must refer to measures envisaged. Where relevant, proposals should also provide information on how the participants will manage the research data generated and/or collected during the project, such as details on what types of data the project will generate, whether and how this data will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved.
This topic participates per default in the open access to research data pilot which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects:
• The pilot applies to the data needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications. Additionally, projects can choose to make other data available for open access and need to describe their approach in a Data Management Plan (to be provided within six months after the project start).
• Note that the evaluation phase proposals will not be evaluated more favourably because they are part of the Pilot, and will not be penalised for opting out of the Pilot.
• Projects can at any stage opt-out of the pilot.
The legal requirements for projects participating in this pilot are in the article 29.3 of the Model Grant Agreement.
Further information on the Open Research Data Pilot is made available in the H2020 Online Manual.
