Altre misure

Il programma di lavoro prevede anche altri interventi, tra cui:

  • azioni trasversali,
  • accesso al Fast track to innovation pilot scheme,
  • accesso allo Strumento per le PMI,
  • azioni nel settore Blue Growth,
  • consulenza di esperti esterni.

Tra le principali novità del programma europeo per la ricerca e l’innovazione Horizon 2020 c’è poi il progetto pilota Open Research Data Pilot, volto a garantire il libero accesso ai risultati delle ricerche finanziate dall’Ue.

A differenza dei progetti finanziati dagli altri work programme di Horizon 2020, per cui l’accesso all’iniziativa pilota è su base volontaria, il nuovo programma di lavoro per il settore NMBP prevede che i progetti finanziati nell’ambito dei temi NMBP-23 to NMBP-29 siano direttamente inseriti nell’Open Research Data Pilot.

Il budget provvisorio del programma di lavoro ammonta a oltre un miliardo di euro, con oltre 516 milioni di euro per il 2016 e circa 562 milioni di euro per il secondo anno.
