I.  HORIZON 2020 - R&I Funding 

Horizon 2020 is the 2014-2020 EU funding programme for Research and Innovation. It covers the whole research and innovation value chain, from big international collaborative research projects to smaller projects with a clear view on the market. Thematic work programmes set the priority topics for 2 years and every year calls for proposals are open for these pre-defined research and innovation topics. For topics falling under the SME instrument or the Fast Track to Innovation, calls for proposals are continously open with 3 or 4 cut-off dates per year.

Under Horizon 2020, Energy stakeholders are addressed mostly in the work Programmes of the following Societal Challenges:

Calls for proposals from other societal challenges might be of interest for the Energy sector, in particular:

  • Here we are again after the second edition 2016 of “E² Tech4Cities ”, the brokerage event organized by Enterprise Europe Brussels/impulse.brussels focused on Energy & Efficiency technologies for Cities.
    Held last June 17, the second edition of “E² Tech4Cities” confirmed his status of high-quality, international event. Take a look to the video here
    Some results:
    More than 147 international face-to-face meetings held from 9:30 to 17:00.
    More than 106 potential future collaborations envisaged
    More than 20 Enterprise Europe Network ‘s partners involved from 15 countries

  • SUMY (Sustainable Urban Logistics & Mobility): Hinde Boulbayem, Mobility Manager | I continue to be impressed with the responsiveness of the NCP Brussels support team. The service I received from the team (on the phone, meetings and emails) plays a big role in my decision to apply our innovation action to the EU calls for action and research funding projects instead of leaving aside our need for innovation support. Our project aims to keep connected people & goods to foster peace and safe place for human to coexist in Brussels. The support I received was friendly, professional, supportive, absolutely timely and extraordinarily efficient. It is rare to find such expertise in Brussels. Our project turns to close collaboration within the EU scope for cost effective, sustainable, safe and inclusive mobility. Especially because we knew we can get help when we need it we did it.  The technical support team of the NCP Brussels is very knowledgeable.  They’ve answered to our questions very quickly.  As a new EU programs user it has reduced our learning curve tremendously. Between the face to face meetings and rapid replies to e-mails, I have been extremely pleased. Keep up the good work!
  • NEVEO: Simon Desbarax |  FIWARE nous a permis d’accélérer le développement de notre prototype et donc la validation du marché et du business model. Par conséquent, FIWARE nous permet aussi d'attirer des investisseurs potentiels, moins frileux en voyant un prototype fonctionnel. FIWARE nous est indispensable en termes de perspectives de développement concrètes. 
  • COMMUNITHINGS : Etay Oren |  « FIWARE est une fabuleuse expérience. L'apport financier est une chose, le support en termes de conseil que nous avons reçu de l'organisation en est une autre. Le fait de rentrer notre candidature nous a amenés à clarifier notre stratégie, à préciser notre vision. Daniela (NCP Brussels ICT) nous a aidé à franchir les différentes étapes, à penser aussi bien marketing que technologie. Nous y avons participé en nous disant : quelle que soit l'issue, nous aurons progressé. Et cela s'est vérifié : notre façon d'approcher le marché s'est sensiblement renforcée. De même, nous avons pu étendre notre champ applicatif. Pour Communithings, il y a un avant-FIWARE et un après-FIWARE !»
  • RDC Environment is a Brussels SME specialised since more than 20 years on the evaluation of environmental, economic and social impacts. These evaluations concern products, services and policies. RDC Environment has exercised its expertise with a consortium composed of 10 international partners. This has enabled RDC Environment to join an H2020 project comprising 10 partners from 6 European countries, among which industrial enterprises known worldwide.
    The proposal was submitted in March 2014 within the framework of the SPIRE (Sustainable Process Industries through Resource & Energy Efficiency) call for proposal. The official kick-off is foreseen for January 2015.
  • Thanks to its proven expertise and reputation in the regulatory field, Brussels SMEObelis has been asked by the University of Galway (Ireland) to join a consortium of 5 partners – 1 university and 4 SME’s companies including Obelis- to work within an FP7 health related project. This 3 year project, named “Neurograft”, started on 1st December 2012, is aiming to develop an artificial conduit for the nerve repair in cases of spinal cord injuries. In this manufacturing project of a medical device, Obelis is involved in its quality and regulatory compliance at every stage of development of the project, giving regulatory guidance to the coordinator and other partners. Obelis plays a pivotal role in specifying all the regulatory requirements and ensuring that all partners understand the structure and content of a compliant design dossier which without it, no CE marking will be granted.
    Being partner in this FP7 project has raised the interest of Obelis in EU funding for research and namely in Horizon 2020.  As a result of this and our reputation, Obelis has been invited to join 3 new  Health proposals under Horizon 2020:
    - AMEDEE project (Bordeaux) coordinated respectively by the French Institute for health INSERM (Novel tools for improved scaffold bone innervation for cranio-facial surgery applications),
    - GLAM project (Leitat of Barcelona) the  Leitat Technological Center (“Glass - Laser Multiplexed Biosensor”)
    - DIACUMAT project (Galway) the University of Galway (Novel Biomaterials Enhancing Survival and Immunoprotection of Pancreatic Islets for Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus). The results for the evaluation of the proposals are expected for the 1st stage on October 2014 and 2nd stage end of April 2015.
  • The Brussels SME Greenloop is partner in a FP7 project called CO2SOLSTOCK. It is a research project gathering 6 EU partners and whose objective is to use the biomimetic approach to develop new environmental technologies. Concretely, it means investigating sustainable bio-inspired solutions for carbon sequestration as an alternative or complementary way to existing Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) techniques.
  • The Brussels SME Perceval is coordinator of a FP6 project called VISP (Internet Service Provision). Via the project, 10 EU partners teams up to to develop a software platform enabling a cluster of SMEs to operate as a single business entity, in multiple dynamic business models, for the production of tailored Internet Service Provider (ISP) solutions adapted to local business needs.
  • Brussels SME 3E is actively involved in several FP7 projects focused on renewable energy. For example, it is the coordinator of MetaPV which brings together the expertise of system operators, inverter manufacturers, renewable energy experts and researchers, MetaPV is providing realistic and innovative solutions demonstrating the power of PV for grid optimisation.
  • The Brussels Capital Region is actively involved, in conjunction with Plateforme Maison Passive, in the PassReg project. The project is co-funded by a CIP funding, called Intelligent Energy Europe. The objective is to help EU regions implement energy efficient Passive House principles. To do so, the project identifies frontrunner regions and flagship projects in this field that can be made visible and transferred in other EU regions. Brussels Capital Region has been identified as a front-runner region to serve as an example.
  • The Brussels based association, EHTEL (European Health Telematics Association) is partner of the EU project Renewing Health. It is co-funded by the CIP under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP). The project aims at implementing large-scale real-life test beds for the validation and evaluation of innovative telemedicine services by means of a patient-centred approach and a common rigorous assessment methodology. It involves 9 of the most advanced regions in the implementation of health-related ICT services.
  • The regional public organisation Bruxelles-Environnement is partner of a FP7 project called TURAS « Transitionning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability » . Via the project, 28 partners team up with the objective to facilitate the collaboration between regional authorities, companies, local communities in order to seek solutions for more sustainable and resilient EU cities.
