This report analyses the country participation patterns in Horizon 2020 as well as the underlying causes for the low participation of a number of EU Member States and Associated Countries. It highlights the key trends in bridging the research and innovation gap and in the research and innovation performance of the EU Member States and their regions, underlining the uneven convergence progress.
This report considers issues related to the criteria and indicators that might be used to define targets for future “Widening Actions” designed to address inequality in research and innovation performance across EU Member States. Under Horizon 2020, this has been the focus of the “Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation” Work Programme.
This publication is the final report of a study that contributed to the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020. It collected information and data on the overall development of synergies between Horizon 2020 and European Structural and Investment Funds. The study provided evidence that there is a legal basis for synergies in place and that there are overall implementation guidelines for all the institutional synergy actors involved.
The interim evaluation of FP7 (November 2010) identified that some Member States, mainly those that joined the EU after 2004, had low participation rates in FP7 projects. Widening actions under the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation part of Horizon 2020 address the causes of low participation by fully exploiting the potential of Europe’s talent pool.
The main objective of the study is to evaluate the performance and to assess the impact of the Eurostars-1 Joint Programme in terms of new products, processes or services introduced into the market two years after the project’s completion. The analysis is also aimed at providing concrete recommendations and any other useful comments on how to better implement the Eurostars-2 programme.
