Where can we find today's presentations?
In the case of not having a National Contact point in our country, who should we contact ?
All presentations from this Information Day will be published on the event webpage https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/news/net-futures-information-day-h2020-ict-2015 by Monday 9 February 2015.
There is a National Contact Point in every EU Member State and in 60 other countries around the world (including especially Associated Countries). The full list of NCPs can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/support/national_contact_points.html
Could you add in the slides the links to download the new templates for proposals with innovation aspects, cited in Ms. KEOPMAN presentation?
The proposal templates for Research and Innovation Actions as well as for Innovation Actions can be downloaded from here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/doc/call/h2020/h2020-phc-2015-two-stage/1617624-part_b__template_dec_19_v1_hperlinks_clean_section_1-3_en.pdf
Guidance for applicants and for evaluators can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/grants_manual/pse/h2020-evaluation-faq_en.pdf
Why is the Ideal-ist platform so poor on proposals starting H2020? It used to be much more populated before. Does this mean that it should be upgraded and better marketed to the public?
Your comment will be passed along to the Ideal-IST network of NCPs with the suggestion to consider better marketing strategies.
Thank you. However, when we look for our country, we can not see any NPC, even if it is on the list. How can we have a NPC? Thank you once again
I didn't hear any specific mention of 'results dissemination' per se. Are there still conditions that projects or consortia have to invest in communication or marketing efforts?
Could you please give more details about where to find the coordinators meetings schedule (on the Participant Portal)? Thank you.
About the 5 months evaluation period: a project has been submitted at the very beginning of October and the 5 months would end att he end of March. However, through the ECAS profile it is shown: "informed" 04/07/2015. Could you please explain this situation? Thank you.
Question for ICT 10 - CAPS:
How much room is there within scopes 10.a, 10.b and 10.c to advance the state of the art in terms of ICT support tools for CAPS? Should these projects deal only with innovation, or can there be some ICT research in them?
Can you please, tell us which country's NCP you are interested in?
Panama, thank you very much.
Horizon 2020 Coordinators' Days are organised in Brussels for the coordinators of actions that have been retained for funding. After you have received the message that your proposal has been successful you will be invited to register and participate in a coordinators' day for all the details on the preparation and signature of your grant agreement.
The 5-month evaluation period starts from the deadline of submission for proposals, not from the day each individual proposal is submitted. For example, for Call 2 the deadline for submission is 14 April 2015 and the 5-month evaluation period ends on 14 September 2015. That explains the status "Informed".
Regarding FIWARE2, will there be preferred to continue existing FIWARE projects or new ones ?
Great to see the innovation evaluation process includes business sector as well as academic/research. In some way how this is done is an indicator of how the innovation evaluation is seen, on the lifecycle timeline - closer to research side or closer to market side. Are there any 'rules of thumb' for the portion of the business community included in the evaluation? Eg. 25% "business evaluators" means bias towards early part of lifecycle and closer to research. e.g. 50% "business evaluators" means balanced somehow. e.g. 75% "business evaluators" means closer to market. Any comments on this topic appreciated. Thanks
Dear participants in the Net Futures Info Day, we will provide answers to all remaining questions as soon as possible. Please, avoid using the "Refresh - Retry" buttons to check for answers to your questions, as you may be re-posting again and again your question. Instead, please, open the Q&A page from the link on the event's initial page. Thank you!
As regards to a National Contact Point for Horizon 2020 ICT research in Panama, we must admit that there is no NCP for H2020 but we have an international relation building in the new project Idealist-2018. Please, contact the project directly through http://www.ideal-ist.eu/
Q: I didn't hear any specific mention of 'results dissemination' per se. Are there still conditions that projects or consortia have to invest in communication or marketing efforts?
The short answer is yes. Especially for innovation projects it is very difficult to see how the market can be reached without properly communicating about the results.
For more research oriented projects, as the projects are funded with public money, dissemination is a way to share the knowledge and to make others progress.
Will be the presentations of the Information Day available on tis website?
Thank you for your reply. The proposal was submitted one day prior tot he closing date (2 OCtober). So July still is after the expiration of 5-months.
The composition of the expert pool in the evaluation depends on the topic and the instrument used and would follow broadly the TRL levels without obligation e.g.
If it’s a topic addressing for instance developments of innovations ecosystem building or acceleration with an innovation action the portion of business experts should be high.
If it’s a topic addressing technological development with a research and innovation action the portion of business experts will is low be lower.
There are no targets of portions of business experts in evaluation as far as I'm aware but grateful for your further views on this question.
ICT10.a, b and c have different goals, but they can all include "some ICT research", which however should not be the main outcome.
In terms of innovation, 10.a is for piloting new network-based solutions to sustainability challenges, 10.b for multidisciplinary research on socio-tecno-economic strategic aspects, 10.c for innovative research and proofs-of-concept of socio-political inter-national networking.
None of them foresees the creation of "ICT support tools for CAPS" as main objective. However, at the same time, none of them excludes that some proposals might have to develop, with some part of their budget, such tools (perhaps building on existing technology), in order to reach their goals.
Yes, the presentations will be published on this website as soon as possible.
Please, contact the helpdesk for the Participants Portal - the dates you mention (2 October) are not the ones for our call that ends on 14 April 2015.
