Seeding the Opportunity
In support of its vision ENTOV-HVM is preparing a core offering that will be suited for funding application to multiple EU research programmes.
The core offering will be adapted to meet eligibility requirements of multiple programmes and a mixture of funding resources created to cover required salaries at participating institutions, networking / training costs and work package efforts by the various contribution roles.
The overall aim will be gaining support for a five (5) year programme consisting of about 30 organizations from 15 countries (including at least 8 COST Inclusiveness Target Countries) with an expected budget of about €15m budget. Potentially suitable EU research programme opportunities are:
- Horizon 2020 INNOSUP: The Horizon 2020 INNOSUP programme aims to test new approaches for better innovation support through funding opportunities for innovation actors across Europe (https://ec.europa.eu/easme/en/innosup)
- European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST): The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding organisation for the creation of research networks, called COST Actions. These networks offer an open space for collaboration among scientists across Europe (and beyond) and thereby give impetus to research advancements and innovation (https://www.cost.eu/)
- European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) – Manufacturing: EIT Manufacturing’s mission is to bring European manufacturing actors together in innovation ecosystems that add unique value to European products, processes, services – and inspire the creation of globally competitive and sustainable manufacturing (https://eit.europa.eu/eit-community/eit-manufacturing)
- European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL): ENoLL is an enthusiastic and active partner of the Open Innovation 2.0 community Forum encompassing innovation experts, policy-makers, academics and citizens. This is the result of an ongoing dialogue with DG CONNECT's Open Innovation Strategy and Policy Group (OISPG) that believes in Living labs as creators of attractive innovation ecosystems (https://www.openlivinglabs.eu/)
- European Regions Research and Innovation Network (ERRIN): ERRIN brings a bottom-up place-based perspective to European research and innovation policy and funding programmes. Through its member-driven working groups ERRIN strengthens EU policy development via the promotion of a regional innovation ecosystems approach and Smart Specialisation (https://www.errin.eu/)
