ID: INNOSUP-08-2020

Scope:

The objective is to reinforce the competitiveness of manufacturing SMEs by providing easy and pan-European access to advanced manufacturing advice and expertise as well as training programmes. The services to be provided to the SME should be driven by its business needs and the implementation must be flexible and fast to better cope with the speed of innovation in advanced manufacturing and the SME requirements.

The action will consist of the two elements (which can be combined) listed below which will continue and expand the activities of the Advanced Manufacturing Support Centre :

  • The roll-out of a pan-European advanced manufacturing assistance programme helping SMEs with the ambition to turn into a factory of the future: Reaching out to companies and assisting a critical mass of manufacturing SMEs with a view to transform their business towards a factory of the future with modern and sustainable production.

Expected Impact:

  • Provide a clear and measurable contribution of the advanced manufacturing assistance and training programme to the innovation performance and environmental and social sustainability of the supported SMEs, as revealed by indicators such as: numbers of new or significantly improved production processes, products or services or new organisational methods; its impact on resource efficiency; its impact on productivity, production lead times, investments and/or turnover; number of SMEs that prepared a concrete plan to upgrade their manufacturing processes during the action; its impact on technical and non­technical competences acquired and workers involvement; a wider impact on job creation is also expected to be measured in the longer term.

  • Frameworks for training programmes related to advanced manufacturing, ready for implementation within the duration of the action. These should propose a pathway on how to facilitate a further scaling-up under the European Social Fund.

The training services should include practical, "on-site" training delivered at facilities where technologies can be tested and demonstrated such as pilot lines (e.g. "learning by doing",
"learning factories", fab labs). Proposals should include solutions to overcome the challenge of both geographical distance and the gender segregation.

ID: LANGEQ-2020

 

OBJECTIVES
The objective of this pilot project is to draw up a sustainable evidence-based strategic research agenda and roadmap setting out actions, processes, tools and actors to achieve full digital language equality of all languages (official or otherwise) used within the Union through the effective use of language technologies. The research agenda should lay out the current state of language technologies and language equality within the Union and give a detailed picture of the desired situation that is needed to achieve digital language equality. The roadmap will then provide the path and the means needed to implement the agenda and ensure that digital language equality becomes a reality by 2030.

 

The selected project will create a research agenda, which will:
1. Map relevant stakeholders and initiatives and liaise with them through public consultations and on-going dialogues;
2. Map relevant technologies, in particular based on artificial intelligence, assess their impact on the linguistic landscape and then analyse the conditions required to maintain and improve the required knowledge within Europe;
3. Identify key research areas and gaps in research that need to be addressed to ensure language technologies can overcome the linguistic divide;

4. Define the varying needs for language technologies (not only machine translation) across all the sectors that make up the European Digital Single Market and across languages used within the EU and its partner countries, but especially the lesser-used or under-resourced languages.

 

BUDGET AVAILABLE
The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of projects under this call for proposals is estimated at EUR 1 800 000 (one million eight hundred thousand euros).
The maximum grant will be EUR 1 800 000 (one million eight hundred thousand euros).

Call for proposal Outline and trial an infrastructure dedicated to the implementation of child rights and protection mechanisms in the online domain open until 15.07.2020 | EU FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES  AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT TIPS | Scoop.it
The Funding and Tenders Portal is the single entry point (the Single Electronic Data Interchange Area) for applicants, contractors and experts in funding programmes and procurements managed by the European Commission.
nicoleta susanus insight:

OBJECTIVES
The objective of the proposed pilot project is to demonstrate an interoperable technical infrastructure dedicated to the implementation of child protection mechanisms (such as age verification) and parental consent mechanisms based on relevant EU legislation such as the AVMSD and GDPR. Technical measures will be based on the use of electronic identification (eID) means (in particular, electronic identification schemes notified by Member States under the Regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS Regulation)).

 

Specific objectives:
The pilot project shall:
1) Undertake a large-scale mapping of existing methods of age-verification and obtaining parental consent in the context of online child protection. This mapping should cover methods used in EU Member States, but should also cover widely used non-EU solutions, both open-source and propriety.
The mapping should result in a comprehensive overview of existing age verification and parental consent methods, and the different age limits they aim to target. The mapping should also identify relevant good practices, including those ensuring compliance with the AVMSD and the GDPR.
2) Based on an assessment of the mapping presented to the Commission, design, implement and test an interoperable infrastructure for child online protection including in particular age-verification and obtaining parental consent of users of
video-sharing platforms or other similar online services, using different approaches, including for example eID. The infrastructure shall take into consideration the relevant articles of the AVMSD and be designed in a manner compliant with the GDPR and cover a minimum of 3 EU Member States/EEA countries.

Town Twinning 2020 – Round 2
nicoleta susanus insight:

GENERAL OVERVIEW OF THE EUROPE FOR CITIZENS PROGRAMME
Under the overall aim of bringing the Union closer to citizens the general objectives of the Programme are:
- to contribute to citizens' understanding of the Union, its history and diversity;
- to foster European citizenship and to improve conditions for civic and democratic participation at Union level.

Measure Town Twinning
This measure aims at supporting projects bringing together a wide range of partner towns in a town twinning event around topics in line with the objectives of the Programme and taking into
consideration the multi-annual priorities. Town twinning projects must organise project activities within 21 days (maximum duration of the project).
By mobilising citizens at local and Union levels to debate on concrete issues from the European political agenda, this measure will seek to promote civic participation in the Union policy making
process and develop opportunities for societal engagement and volunteering at Union level.
Twinning must be understood lato sensu, thus referring to the municipalities which signed or are engaged to sign twinning agreements as well as to the municipalities having other forms of
partnerships fostering their cooperation and cultural links.
Maximum grant
The maximum grant for a Town Twinning project is EUR 25 000.

2021 LIFE operating grants for NGOs 

2021 LIFE operating grants for NGOs  | EU FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES  AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT TIPS | Scoop.it
2021 operating grants for NGOs
nicoleta susanus insight:

NGOs can apply for LIFE action grants under the two sub-programmes “environment” and “climate action”. They can also apply for operating grants. The legal base for NGOs receiving operating grants is the LIFE Regulation which states that:

"Operating grants shall support certain operational and administrative costs of non-profit making entities which pursue an aim of general Union interest, are primarily active in the field of environment or climate action and are involved in the development, implementation and enforcement of Union policy and legislation." (Article 21 of the Regulation).

 

Brexit information for UK beneficiaries of LIFE grants

The United Kingdom has withdrawn from the European Union and becomes a third country as of 1 February 2020. The EU and the UK have concluded the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement which provides for a transition period until 31 December 2020.

UK applicants and beneficiaries remain eligible to receive LIFE funds for the entire duration of grants under the 2014-2020 LIFE programme, including after the end of the transition period. This applies to existing grants, ongoing procedures and calls for proposals published in 2020 even if the grant is signed after 31 December 2020.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
nicoleta susanus insight:

How voluminous should a project proposal be?

A concept note should have no more than 10 pages.

For full project proposals there are no fixed specifications on the volume. A proposal should be as concise and clear as possible. Applicants should avoid voluminous proposals and should not provide excessively detailed descriptions of project areas, environmental technologies, lists of species, etc. You should, however, describe all project actions in a clear and detailed way.

 

What is the optimal budget for a LIFE project?

The project budget depends on the project type. Please carefully read the application guide of the call for proposals you apply for.

For traditional LIFE projects there are no specifications for project budgets. LIFE has co-funded large ambitious projects with total costs of more than EUR 5 million several times in the past. However, proposals for small projects with total costs below EUR 500,000 have rarely been selected in the evaluation due to the limited output and consequently a low added value.

Integrated projects usually have a total project budget of around EUR 17 million.

 

Who should manage a LIFE project?

Generally, the staff of the project leader (“coordinating beneficiary”) should carry out the project management. However, if justified, an associated beneficiary or a sub-contractor under the coordinating beneficiary's direct control could take over the project management. Each project should have a full-time project manager.

The project proposal should clearly describe who will be in charge of the project management, how much personnel and time will be devoted to this task, and how and by whom decisions will be taken during the project period.

 

Are individuals who act as freelance experts acceptable as
partners for a LIFE programme? Freelance experts do not form
part of any organisation.

 

 

Article 23 of the LIFE Regulation states that LIFE may fund "public and private bodies". This article should be read in the context of the EU Financial Regulation which makes it clear that "private bodies" does not include private individuals. Therefore both the applicant and any partners (associated beneficiaries) must be "bodies" and not individuals (i.e. natural persons). Please note that
'sole traders' are also considered 'natural persons'. Individuals can be involved in projects as employees of beneficiaries, as natural persons or through external assistance contracts. As indicated in art. II.19.2 of the Grant Agreement, costs of natural persons working under a contract with the coordinating beneficiary or an
associated beneficiary other than an employment contract
may be assimilated to costs of personnel, provided that
the following conditions are fulfilled:
(i) the natural person works under the instructions of the
beneficiary and, unless otherwise agreed with the
beneficiary, in the premises of the beneficiary;
(ii) the result of the work belongs to the beneficiary; and
(iii) the costs are not significantly different from the costs of personnel performing similar tasks under an employment contract with the beneficiary. In the case of external assistance, it should be recalled that it must be tendered so the proposal cannot name a specific individual or company as the provider of the external assistance.

  • Coaching services and selection of coaches, including access to existing databases of coaches/experts (EU, national, regional) and possible creation of pools of experts. Optionally, design and development of other common tools and resources.
  • Identifying ways to continue the exchanges, provided services, tools and resources after the end of the action.
  • The established national and/or regional support schemes could include the following:
  • Common tools and resources to support, with the respective budgets of the national innovation agencies, highly innovative start-ups and SMEs with a clear commercial ambition and a potential for high growth and internationalisation for their close-to-market activities. The national resources deployed by national innovation agencies, if relevant, will need to comply with State Aid competition rules
  • Feasibility study as an outcome of the project (not necessarily the only one)
  • International pool of evaluators of the projects
  • Short market-oriented project proposal template/form
  • Introduction of other supportive services, including coaching services to the beneficiaries
  • Follow up of the beneficiaries and advice services concerning other possible instruments on national/regional/EU levels, as well as other ways of private funding for the continuation of a project, in case the feasibility studies demonstrate that it is worth proceeding to the next phase of development.

COVID-19 - essential practical advice on Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps mobility
nicoleta susanus insight:

The Commission has taken the following measures:

  • National Agencies are authorised to invoke the force majeure clause in all cases where the application of national limitations affects the implementation of Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps projects. This allows them to assess the possibility of accepting additional costs justified by the COVID-19 containment measures. These additional costs should not exceed the total budget granted to the project.
  • Deadlines for all planned activities may be postponed by up to 12 months per project. The maximum length of the project cannot exceed 36 months. Several thousand ongoing Erasmus+ partnership projects have the opportunity to reschedule activities that could not take place in Spring 2020.
  • Deadlines for ongoing calls have been postponed.
    For information on the new call deadlines, please see:
    https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/news/coronavirus-outbreak-deadlines-applications-extended_en 
  • National Agencies have been asked to closely follow the problems faced by participants, especially young people, who are currently abroad so that immediate and adequate support can be provided to them.
  • Recent graduates who need to postpone their planned placements abroad will be allowed to take them up within 18 months of their graduation, instead of the normal 12-month timeframe.
