FET Open: the European Innovation Council's exploratory engine for research on future disruptive technologies — •Martin Lange — Research Executive Agency, European Commission
The new European Innovation Council (EIC) pilot supports top-class innovators, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs and small companies with bright ideas, offering €2.7 billion in funding for the period 2018-2020. It brings together those parts of Horizon 2020 that support high-risk/high-return, breakthrough research or market creating innovation.
As part of the EIC pilot, the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open programme aims at mobilising Europe's most creative and forward thinking researchers from all disciplines to work together and explore what may become the disruptive technologies of the future.
Researchers are able to submit their ideas to a call for proposals (next submission deadline: 16 May 2018) open to any scientific discipline. Proposals must focus on ambitious high-risk / high-impact interdisciplinary research, addressing a clear and radical vision, and targeting a novel science-to-technology breakthrough as a first proof of concept for this vision. The participation of excellent young researchers and ambitious high-tech SMEs is strongly encouraged.
In my presentation, I will introduce the EIC pilot and explain the most important features of the FET Open programme, including scope, objectives, expected impact, budget, the evaluation process and criteria. I will also provide some statistics and examples of projects, with a specific focus on Condensed Matter Physics related topics.
