Consultation to prepare Horizon 2020
ETPIS has started the preparation of its contribution to Horizon 2020 by launching the SafeFuture initiative described below on this web page.
SafeFuture is aimed at structuring and coordinating the research investment on safety and security to support the sustainability objectives of the EU2020 Strategy in the context of intensive innovation. The ambition is to implement the initiative on a PPP model, since safety is beneficial for both public and private sectors.
So far, the concept and the outline of the initiative have been defined. Now it is time to define more precisely the scientific and technological challenges that need to be addressed.
Thus, as member or stakeholder of ETPIS, you are invited to suggest topics for Horizon 2020. The proposed topics should be in line with the SafeFuture initiative.
The consultation period has been prolonged until June 17th, 2013.
The first results of the consultation (35 topics proposed) have been communicated at the last ETPIS General Assembly on May 23th, in Stuttgart.
Safe innovation for competitive and sustainable Future
ETPIS Vision in Horizon 2020:
Industrial safety performance progressively and measurably improved in terms of reduction of reportable accidents at work, occupational diseases, environmental incidents and accident-related production losses. “Incident elimination” and “learning from failures” cultures embedded in design, maintenance and operation at all levels in enterprises. Structured self-regulated safety programs in all major industry sectors in all European countries. Measurable performance targets for accident elimination and accident free mind set workplaces as the norm in Europe.
The initiative “SafeFuture - Safe innovation for a competitive and sustainable future” is organized around 4 pillars that will bring innovative and sustainable solutions to the European Grand Challenges the 4 pillars:
- Safe Infrastructure, to address e.g.: life extension of process plants, transport infrastructures, power plants, off-shore platforms…; intensification of natural catastrophes due to climate change; design and monitoring for long term operation for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS); monitoring, protection and security of critical infrastructures…
- Safe Energy, to address e.g.: safety of the use of new energy carriers for vehicles (FEV, fuel cells, CNG, biofuels…); safety for the green energy technologies (wind mills, photovoltaic panels, concentrating solar power (CSP)…); making the underground transport infrastructure compatible with the new energy carriers; combining pan European transport infrastructures and smart high power electricity grids…
- Safe Products and Production, to address e.g.: development of the European Factory of the Future, by managing emerging risks through new integrated solutions (safety systems, advanced personal protective equipments, new organizational models, ergonomics, etc.); enabling higher productivity under better workplaces; safety for the green jobs; safe production and use of nanomaterials…
- Transversal issues, to solve existing challenges for sustainable integration, interaction and risk governance such as: difficulties in putting together different risk mitigation policies and ensuring their compatibility (Risk-Risk trade-offs), Multi-risk and interdependencies of risks in a global competitive market…

Last Stakeholder Annual Meeting
General Assembly 2013, Stuttgart May 23th, 2013
The ETPIS General Assembly 2013 took place on May 23, 2013, in Stuttgart as part of the regular EU-VRi 2013 General Assembly of all members.
Indeed, as operating agent of ETPIS, EU-VRi has to fulfill the national legal and financial requirements. Therefore, in 2012, EU-VRi had to introduce in its statutes the category ETPIS membership for individuals. Thus, the formal General Assembly of EU-VRi has to include the report on the activities of ETPIS members.
This General Assembly was dedicated to the positioning of ETPIS in Horizon 2020, using the SafeFuture initiative.
The situation regarding the interaction between ETPIS and the European Commission has been explained based on the draft document "European Technology Platforms 2020 strategy".
The participants have shared their views and ideas to implement SafeFuture initiative and go to the implementation of H2020.
