  1. CANADA – EUROPE Partners in the world / Partenaires dans le monde S&T Information Day: Scientific Cooperation with the EU Budapest 27 March 2007 Patricia E. Ockwell

  2. Canada-EU Research Collaboration • Why Collaborate with Canada for FP7 • The Canadian Research Network • FP7 from a Canadian Perspective • Tool Box for FP7 Collaboration

  3. Why Collaborate with Canadain FP7? • Work together with best minds on specific challenges • Avoid duplication of efforts • Share costs, risks and benefits • Canadian areas of research excellence dovetail with thematic areas in FP7

  4. The CanadianResearch Network • Who conducts research in Canada? • How is Canadian research funded? • Canadian priority areas for research • International collaborations & partnerships • Funding programs dedicated to international collaboration

  5. Who Conducts Research in Canada? Figures for 2005 show the gen distribution: out of a total $26,268M: • Business enterprises: 52.7% ($13,843M) • Universities and colleges: 37.5% ($9,850M) • Governments (federal & provincial): 37.5% ($2,495M) • Private non-profit organizations: 0.3% ($79M)

  6. How is Canadian Research Funded? Canadian university R&D Funding programs Core funding to Canadian university research is provided by three granting councils: • Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) • Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) • Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

  7. How is Canadian Research Funded? • Nine strategic research programs • Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) • Canada Research Chairs (CRC) • Genome Canada • Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) • Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) • Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC) • Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS) • Program of Energy Research and Development (PERD) • Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC)

  8. Key Canadian Research Areas • Information and Communications Technologies • Life Sciences • Resource and Environmental Technologies • Advanced Manufacturing Technologies • Aerospace Technologies

  9. Funding Programs Dedicated to International Collaboration • Going Global Program • International S&T Partnerships Program • Special Research Opportunity Program • International Opportunities Program • The Canada Foundation for Innovation’s S&T funding dedicated to international collaboration

  10. FP7 From a Canadian Perspective • EU Framework Program • FP7 • FP7: Cooperation Program

  11. EU Framework Program • Main instrument for funding research in the European Union • FP6 (2002-2006) 4 yr budget of € 17.5 B • FP7 (2007-2013) 6 yr budget of € 54.0 B

  12. FP7 Four specific programs: • Ideas – Frontier Research • People – Human Potential • Capacities – Research Capacity • Cooperation – Collaborative R

  13. FP7 Cooperation Program 10 Thematic Areas: • Information & Communication Technologies • Food, Agriculture & Biotechnology • Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials & New Production Technologies • Energy • Environment (including Climate Change) • Transport (including Aeronautics) • Socio-economic Sciences & the Humanities • Security • Space

  14. Tool Box for Collaboration • Framework • ERA-Can • Entice Canadian Researchers

  15. Framework Canada-EU S&T Cooperation Agreement Reciprocal self-funded program access Since 1996 http://www.infoexport.gc.ca/science/agreements-en.htm

  16. ERA-Can Office Objective: To foster research collaboration between Canada and the EU www.era-can.ca • Joint Canada-EU FP6 project • 3 year mandate • “One-stop-information-shop” • Big mandate – few resources

  17. Entice Canadian Researchers • Hungary “gaining ground” in research • But, not historical partner for collaborative research with Canada • So, must entice Canadian researchers to partner • Show them what you’ve got!
