Future Perspectives and Constraints

DeputyVice-Rector for Research of Riga Technical University

RTU in previous FP call

FP project «lifebuoy» for high quality of science in period 2000- 2010, still almost only source for the science

67% of the total research funding, i.e. 6,3 MLs in 2011 were obtained from the external sources, including FP7 funding

Success rate in obtaining FP5-FP7 funding was 32% which is an average in Europe

Several new strong research groups were established: e.g. sandwich-type material research; ceramic materials; water security; bioenergy

EU funding have created infrastructure and strengthened human resources

Important prerequisite: requirement for consideringregional perspective in project proposal was taken into account


Future perspectives

Future perspectives

  • However, this period was too short to reach the levels of scientific institutions of Central European countries (e.g. «Max Planck Institute»)

  • Thus, the requirement to include regional diversity among partners in project should be included in Horizon 2020, namely, the cohesion policy should be applied not only to infrastructure but also to project funding

  • This would allow to maintain research infrastructure and human resources, otherwise it could be problematic to utilise previous investments
