‘Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies – Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing'. (European Commission Decision C(2018)4708 of 24 July 2018) The Work Programme 2018-2020 reflects lessons learned from the Interim Evaluation, which covered the first three years of Horizon 2020. The interim evaluation showed the effectiveness of the NMBP part, with 75% of the projects intending to develop a new product; 60% a new process; 24% a new service; and 4% an organisational or business model innovation. Particularly relevant are demonstrators on technology integration in an industrial environment, for example those from the dedicated Pilot Lines call, which include also open access pilot lines for SMEs. Hence, this Work Programme emphasises such demonstrators and pilot lines. The NMBP part has successfully engaged industry, including SMEs, with a large number of newcomers, predominantly SMEs. Participants have stressed theоpportunities that projects provided in terms of market access. This Work Programme reflects this by including 25 topics in 2018-19, which explicitly promote open innovation through cooperation with other projects; enhanced user involvement; and the accessibility to the results produced. Furthermore, the 'Exploitation booster', a pilot involving NMBP projects, reflects the need for systematic and specific support for exploitation. This Work Programme responds to the need to deliver on the targets for climate action and sustainable development, through a dedicated call on industrial sustainability, which makes substantial contributions to the focus areas 'Connecting economic and environmental gains – the Circular Economy' and 'Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future'. http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/wp/2018-2020/main/h2020-wp1820-leit-nmp_en.pdf
