Era net definition and implications
ERA-Net – definition and implications administrative)

  • Initiative of the EU-Commission implemented since FP6

  • Objective:

    to develop and strengthen the coordination of public research programmes carried out at national or at regional level

  • A step by step approach:

    • Systematic exchange of information & best practice

    • Definition and preparation of joint activities

    • Implementation of joint activities

    • Funding of transnational research

  • Participants:

    national or regional programme owners or managers from at least 3 different MS or AS

Era nets in environment fp7 top down approach
ERA-Nets in Environment FP7 – top-down-approach ‚bottom-up-approach‘

  • Environment and Health – ERA-ENVHEALTH (Call2007)

  • Cultural heritage – NET-HERITAGE (Call2007)

  • Climate Change – CIR2CLE (Call2009)

  • Marine Research – SEAS ERA (Call2009)

  • Water management (Call2010)

  • Biodiversity (Call2010)

  • Eco-Innovation (Call2010)

The special case eco innovation
The special case: Eco-Innovation ‚bottom-up-approach‘

  • High political relevance (SDS, ETAP, Lead market initiative, Lisbon strategy, European recovery plan)

  • Different activities and programmes for supporting eco-innovation (CIP, INNOVA and related networks)

  • Strong support by the EU-Commission; integrating interests from different DGs

  • But:

    • Very broad and not easy to handle

    • Combining technological, economic, ecological and social aspects of innovation

    • Addressing each sector of everyday’s life which lacks sustainability

Era net toolbox
ERA-net-Toolbox ‚bottom-up-approach‘

  • Systematic exchange of information and best practice, discussion forum for (common) strategy and programme development in the field of eco-innovation

  • Identification of interfaces of existing research lines and better synchronisation of national programmes

  • Definition, preparation, implementation and evaluation of joint activities and funding of joint trans-national research

  • Networking with Technology-Platforms; exchange on Strategic Research agendas

  • Networking with relevant ERA-Nets for coordinating research funding activities

Era net on eco innovation scientific targets
ERA-Net on Eco-Innovation – ‚bottom-up-approach‘scientifictargets

  • 1) to perform R&D with the purpose of eco-innovation resulting in or aimed at significantly improving environmental protection; and

  • 2) to perform R&D with the purpose to broaden the application of eco-innovation that is novel to the individual or societal user and which results, throughout its life cycle, in a reduction of environmental risk, pollution and the negative impacts of resources use (including energy use) compared to relevant alternatives”

  • 3) to perform R&D to understand the obstacles hindering eco-innovations penetrating markets and how to overcome them

State of the art
State of the art ‚bottom-up-approach‘

  • 18 countries/regions in Europe confirmed to participate

  • 9 more countries/regions expressed their interest

  • Partners from Ministries/agencies of science, environment, innovation

  • Planned duration of the project: 3-4 years

  • Joint activities; higher education, staff exchange, Research agenda
