Open Call SC1-HCO-01-2016: Valorisation of FP7 Health and H2020 SC1 Research Results

European CommissionThe objective of this coordination and support action is to develop a European web marketplace referencing all types of innovations such as patents, licensing opportunities, prototypes, products, technologies or services with a potential for future exploitation and/or commercialisation, primarily generated by FP7 Health and Horizon 2020 SC1 programmes.

The marketplace should become a one-stop-shop between innovation providers (mainly academic research organisations) and innovation developers (such as SMEs, midcaps and larger companies, EU research infrastructures). The further assessment and/or validation of any high-value discovery shall not be performed within the framework of the proposal.

Further exploitation should be widely promoted to innovation developers; therefore the proposal should detail how it intends to incentivise academia, TTOs, SMEs and the healthcare sector at large to ensure a broad use, exploitation and feeding of the marketplace in Europe. The proposal should include a solid monetization strategy to ensure sustainability of the marketplace after the end of the project.

TTOs with proven track records in exploitation of research results as well as business development departments from healthcare companies should be involved in the consortium to ensure a coherent and consistent approach between innovation providers and innovation developers. Special attention should be given to project outcomes in low performing Member States and Associated Countries[[As defined by Widening Participation and Spreading Excellence: Member States below 70% of the EU average of the Composite Indicator of Research Excellence. The Composite indicator of Research Excellence (with a corrective threshold of 70% of the EU average) has been selected to distinguish those countries identified as "low R&I performing" or "widening" countries. These are:

  • Member States: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
  • Associated Countries (subject to valid association agreements of third countries with Horizon 2020): Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Faroe Islands, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. Benchmarking of existing initiatives at European, Member States or international level (such as Enterprise Europe Network or the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Technology Transfer) is a prerequisite. This benchmarking should contribute to identifying best practices, rightly positioning contents and services of the marketplace, as well as defining Key Performance Indicators that will be monitored throughout the deployment of the marketplace.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 1 and 2 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Deadline Date: 13-04-2016 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)
