Strengthening Collaboration with Industry a main
  • From the list of main targets in the contract
    with the European Commission Consolidating
    collaboration with industry, especially with
    SMEs, through a durable partnership programme
    implying strong commitments from both sides,
    supported by an industrial club.

SME Small-Medium Enterprises
Industrial Club, Members benefits
  • Preferential access
  • to the outcomes of the network as well as to the
    documents prepared by the network
  • Preferential exchange
  • with the start-up incubators of the partners of
    the Network
  • Invitation to the network events
  • free of participation fees
  • Influence the strategic decisions of the network
  • including research topics to cover
  • Request the targeted tutorials

Industrial Club, Members benefits
  • Access participation in experiments, tools
  • specific experiments on the Euro-FGI platforms
  • to the software and tools developed by the
  • Consultancy
  • Euro-FGI could commit on providing a certain
    amount of person days of expert consultancy to
    the members of the club
  • Standardization
  • Euro-NGI contributes to and can provide support
    to standardization activities
  • This will promote the take-up of new technologies
  • by facilitating the transfer of innovative
    technologies to and from European companies and
    research institutions.

Euro-NGI and SMEs
  • Euro-NGI acknowledges the important role of SMEs
  • as fast moving, technological highly innovative
  • SMEs, however, may be short of specific research
    resources in order to complement their own
  • An efficient interface
  • between SMEs and the available competences of the
    Euro-NGI network is being organized
  • The SMEs will take advantage of
  • the global and unified view of the field and of
    the main technological trends provided by the
    documents the network is producing. Indeed,
  • SMEs usually dont have enough internal resource
    to afford this type of analysis and synthesis.

Euro-NGI and SMEs
  • Contractual issues
  • may be a major obstacle for the cooperation
    between university researchers and SMEs.
  • The network can support the cooperation by
    providing help, e.g. in terms of fair contract
    templates with regard to IPR issues.
  • Another objective of this activity is to collect
    and arbitrate requests for exchanging
  • students, researchers and staff people between
    SMEs and the academic members of the consortium.
  • Example Support sabbatical stays of researchers
    within SMEs or co-advisory of students with SMEs.

Industrial Club, Euro-NGI benefits
  • Technological transfer will be in both
  • the club will help in transferring Euro-NGI
    results to the applications world
  • The contribution in building the networks
    technological roadmap
  • Win-win situation

Industrial Club, IPR
  • There are provisioned mechanisms to protect IP
    Rights for all sides included (Industry,
    Consortium Partners)
  • Legal issues would be analysed and workout on

  • Collaboration with external colleagues and
    organizations is one of our main targets
  • We will be very glad to discuss with you about
    possible synergies
  • You are kindly invited to attend our various
  • Conference, Workshops, Summer School, etc.
  • Web site and Contacts www.eurongi.org

  • The main technical and scientific outcomes of the
    2 years
  • a series of state of the arts and tutorials on
    the various covered domains
  • the planning and execution of new jointly
    executed research, with major innovative outcomes
    in main advance domains
  • These innovative research projects have started,
    they would not have exist without Euro-NGI
  • Spreading of the Excellence
  • through the web site,
  • publications database,
  • Summer School,
  • Conferences and workshops and
  • several contacts and partnerships.

  • A poll showed
  • the high interest of the partners in the network,
  • the motivation for continuing executing the Joint
    Program of Activities is very high
  • Euro-NGI is becoming to be very well known
    outside the consortium

  • Updates expected

  • Improving the competitiveness of European
    industry and enabling Europe to master and shape
    future developments in ICT so that the demands of
    its society and economy are met. ICT is at the
    very core of the knowledge-based society.
    Activities will strengthen Europe's scientific
    and technology base and ensure its global
    leadership in ICT, help drive and stimulate
    product, service and process innovation and
    creativity through ICT use and ensure that ICT
    progress is rapidly transformed into benefits for
    Europe's citizens, businesses, industry and
    governments. These activities will also help
    reduce the digital divide and social exclusion.

Three ICT Challenges for ICT Researchers and
  • 1. The converged communication and service
    Infrastructure that will gradually replace the
    current Internet, mobile, fixed and audiovisual
  • 2. The engineering of more robust, context-aware
    and easy-to-use ICT systems that self improve and
    self-adapt within their respective environments.
  • 3. The increasingly smaller, cheaper, more
    reliable and low consumption electronic
    components and systems that constitute the basis
    for innovation in all major products and service.

Four Challenges Driven by Socio-Economic Goals
  • 4. Digital libraries, knowledge and content
    development tools and applications that will help
    us preserve, develop and disseminate our cultural
    assets, improve our learning and education
    systems and strengthen the creativity of our
  • 5. ICT tools for sustainable Health systems
    enhancing our ability to monitor our health and
    well-being and to treat major illnesses and
  • 6. Intelligent and safe vehicles and technologies
    environmental sustainability and energy
    efficiency that are key requirements of our
  • 7. ICT systems and applications for better
    inclusion and independent living of all citizens.

Future and Emerging Technologies Activity
  • 8. The Future and Emerging Technologies activity
    will continue to foster trans-disciplinary
    research excellence in emerging ICT-related
    research domains.
  • These 8 challenges are present in the call
  • expected to remain largely valid well beyond this
    first work programme as they express aims to be
    achieved in a 10-15 years timeframe

Funding Schemes
  • 1. Collaborative projects (CP)
  • Support to research projects carried out by
    consortia with participants from different
    countries, aiming at developing new knowledge,
    new technology, products, demonstration
    activities or common resources for research.
  • a) small or medium-scale focused research
    actions (STREP)
  • b) large-scale integrating projects" (IP)

Funding Schemes

    implemented by a number of research organisations
    integrating their activities in a given field,
    carried out by research teams in the framework of
    longer term cooperation.
  • 3. Coordination and support actions (CSA)
  • Support to activities aimed at coordinating or
    supporting research activities and policies
    (networking, exchanges, coordination of funded
    projects, trans-national access to research
    infrastructures, studies, conferences, etc).
    These actions may also be implemented by means
    other than calls for proposals.

The Role of SME in FP7
  • Feeding innovation SME play a vital role in the
    development of new visions and in transforming
    them into business assets.
  • Community research programmes in ICT provide
    major opportunities for SMEs to
  • finance high-risk, early-stage research and
  • build strategic partnerships
  • operate outside their local markets with higher
    value innovative products and services
  • SMEs constitute an important part of the ICT
    research consortia together with large companies,
    universities, and public research labs.
  • Community financial contribution may reach a
    maximum of 75 of the total eligible costs (FP6
    50 )
