Synergies between ESIF and Horizon 2020 - Cooperation of MIRRIS with JRC

 The European Commission identified synergies between the different Union funds in order to foster research and innovation investments and their impact, combining different forms of innovation and competitiveness support, or carrying innovative ideas further along the innovation cycle or value chain to bring them to the market. Synergies are thus about obtaining more impacts on competitiveness, jobs and growth in the EU by combining ESIF, Horizon 2020 and other EU instruments in a strategic and also cohesion-oriented manner.

The guide addressing the above noted synergies can be downloaded from the following link:

 From this link presentation about the synergies can be downloaded. In particular, on slide 27 of the noted ppt, cooperation between MIRRIS and Stairway to Excellence initiative is clearly mentioned. 

Stairway to Excellence is funded by the European Parliament and implemented by DG Region and Joint Research Centre (JRC), which will also benefit from complementarities with S3 Platform. 

 Stairway to excellence aims at:

- mapping the capacity collecting qualitative and quantitative information available at national and regional level, including the areas of strength in FP participation, the priorities for RIS3, the identification and assessment of public instruments to support the participation in FP7;

- peer review of structures and instruments used to enhance participation to Framework Programmes and exploit synergies;

- exploitation and diffusion of results from earlier Framework Programmes, as the RIS3 pilot platforms for policy makers, research and business actors committing to engage in transnational cooperation, analyse situation as regards the take-up of public sector research results by the private sector;

- analysing the "close to market" type of innovation policy instruments used in the EU including with regard to the work done on KETs, Lead Market Initiative, cluster support, public procurement of innovation, LivingLabs, user-centred innovation;

- organizing two exploratory events to present both analysis and discuss ways of exploiting previously-generated knowledge and better link to value chains.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under agreement n°320209
