Research funded by the EU through FP7

  • 27 EU Member States (MS) and 11 Associated States (AS):
    • contribute to the framework program research budget
    • are eligible to apply for research grants
  • FP7 divided in 4 major programmes:
    • Cooperation
      • Cooperative projects, Networks of Excellence
    • Ideas
      • supports investigator-driven frontier research
    • People
      • training, mobility and career development for researchers
    • Capacities
      • enhance research and innovation capacities to ensure optimal use
slide3

FP7 Cooperative projects

  • Collaborative projects
    • Consortia with participants from different countries, aiming at developing new knowledge, new technology, products, demonstration activities or common resources for research
  • Consortium eligibility criterion:
    • at least 3 participants from different MS/AS-> by definition multinational-> inherent need to consider data storage and access -> internalresults sharing strategies must be defined prior to start of project
  • After end of project:
    • Results are co-owned by members of consortium-> need for common exploitation strategies
slide4

FP7 Networks of Excellence (NoE)

  • Networks of Excellence foster the long-term durable integration of research resources and capacities (researchers, services, teams, organisations, institutions) in fields of strategic importance for European research, through networks of research centres in order to overcome demonstrable and detrimental fragmentation […].
slide5

Networks of Excellence funded so far:

  • INFOBIOMED
    • Structuring European Biomedical Informatics through the exchange and interfacing of methods, tools and technologies used in Medical lnformatics and Bioinfomatics
  • BIOPATTERN
    • Develop a pan-European, coherent and intelligent analysis of a citizen\'s bio-profile for clinical use
  • SEMANTIC MINING
    • Development of generic methods and tools supporting data mining, knowledge discovery, knowledge representation etc
  • VPH NoE
slide6

How can an NoE help with model sharing?

  • The activities of an NoE should include:
    • Establishment of shared and mutually accessible research equipment, managerial and research infrastructures, facilities and services
    • Organisation of networking activities to help transfer knowledge to teams within the network and external to the network
    • Establishment of training programmes for research staff
  • -> such activities are central to enabling model sharing within a community
slide7

Example: Model sharing in VPH

  • An NoE (“VPH NoE”) is currently funded in the VPH field
  • It will address these issues (and many others) from June 2008 – December 2012
    • Establishment of shared and mutually accessible research equipment, managerial and research infrastructures, facilities and services
    • VPH NoE will develop a VPH ToolKit: “a technical and methodological framework that will support and enable VPH research through the creation, accumulation and curation of VPH research-related ‘capacities’.”
slide8

Example: Model sharing in VPH

  • Organisation of networking activities to help transfer knowledge to teams within the network and external to the network
  • VPH NoE plans for a number of activities in this area, such as:
    • organisation of events, meetings and conferences for the community
    • establishment of industrial and clinical advisory boards
    • regular publications of dissemination materials
  • Establishment of training programmes for research staff
  • VPH NoE will address training and career development for both early and in-career researchers through the VPH Training Scheme to be developed during the project
slide9

Other efforts to enable model sharing

  • All new projects are asked the following:
    • to collaborate with VPH NoE to ensure compatibility with the framework.
    • to participate in concertation activities organised by the EC
      • VPH concertation meeting (jointly organised with VPH NoE) planned for October 2008
  • Yearly reviews ensure that collaborations with other projects are maintained
  • Future call to be held for Coordination Action on achievements and evolution of the broader BMI field
