    3. 2009 – 2010 Redefine European research Re-focus European R&D

    4. 2008: “2020 Vision for the European Research Area (ERA)” Council of the European Union, 9 December 2008 • Council conclusions adopted by the Competitiveness Council, 2.12.2008 • Legally binding for all Member States

    5. 2008: “2020 Vision for the European Research Area (ERA)” • The ERA is firmly rooted in society and responsive to its needs • The European publicly-supported research and technology plays a key role in responding to the needs of citizens and business, through world-class cutting-edge research • The ERA defines the European way to excellence in research • Strong interactions within the “knowledge triangle” (education, research and innovation) are promoted at all levels • The ERA provides coordinated support to researchers and research institutions engaged in excellent research

    6. 2009: The Lund Declaration The Grand Challenges for research The vision that will shape the Framework Programme 8

    7. 2009: The Lund Declaration: “Europe must focus on the Grand Challenges of our time” • Grand Challenges: • Global warming • Tightening supplies of energy, water and food • Ageing societies • Public health • Security • Turning Europe into an eco-efficient economy • European research must focus on the Grand Challenges of our time moving beyond current rigid thematic approaches • Responses to Grand Challenges: broad areas of issue-oriented research in relevant fields • The Framework Programme for Research (FP7, FP8) must also respond to these demands • Actions: • Strengthening frontier research initiated by the research community itself • Taking a global lead in the development of enabling technologies • Excellence and well-networked knowledge institutions • The creation and maintenance of world class research infrastructures

    8. 2009: The Lund Declaration - Actions: • Prioritizing of research and innovation to meet Grand Challenges • Transformation of European knowledge production system through major university reform • Radical new solutions require more risk-taking in research and innovation • Strategically develop international relations and cooperations by strengthening links and alliances • World class research infrastructures are needed for excellence and attractiveness

    9. 2009: European Research Area Advisory Board ERAB “Preparing Europe for a New Renaissance” A strategic view of the European Research Area – Vision 2030

    10. ‘New Renaissance = A paradigm shift in how we think, live and interact together, as well as a paradigm shift in what the role and place of science should be’ ‘A new resolution: to make the ERA a byword for creativity, excellence and efficiency – and the catalyst for a new Renaissance in the way we think, act and research globally (ERAB, Nov. 2009)

    11. 2009: European Research Area Advisory Board ERAB: Action required by 2030 on 6 fundamental issues: • A united ERA to permit ideas and people to move freely 2. An ERA driven by societal needs to address the ‘Grand Challenges’ 3. An ERA based on shared responsibility between science, policy and society  a ‘new social contract’ between science and society 4. An ERA of open innovation between all public and private stakeholders 5. An ERA to deliver excellence; risk-taking in research will be the guiding principle for the ERA policy 6. An ERA of cohesion to allow all European research actors to take part in the knowledge-based society

    12. 2010: EU2020 “A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth” A strategic view of the EU– Vision 2020 “Europe 2020 is about what we need to do today and tomorrow to get the EU economy back on track.” “We need to build a new economic model based on knowledge, low-carbon economy and high employment levels.” “Europe 2020 will rely on two pillars: the thematic approach; and country reporting.” Jose Manuel Barroso President of the European Commission 03.03.2010

    13. 2010: EU2020 - The Flagship Initiatives

    14. EU2020 Flagship Initiative “Innovation Union” 1/3 • The aim: to re-focus R&D and innovation policy on the challenges facing our society: - energy security - transport - climate change - resource efficiency - health - ageing - environmentally-friendly production - land management • Every link should be strengthened in the innovation chain, from “blue sky” research to commercialisation

    15. EU2020 Flagship Initiative “Innovation Union” 2/3 Actions at EU level: • To develop a strategic research agenda focused on challenges such as: - energy security - transport - climate change - resource efficiency - health - ageing - environmentally-friendly production - land management • To enhance joint programming with Member States and regions • To improve framework conditions for business to innovate • To launch ‘European Innovation Partnerships’ between the EU and national levels (the first will include: “building the bio-economy by 2020”, “the key enabling technologies to shape Europe’s industrial future”, and “technologies to allow older people to live independently and be active in society”) • To strengthen and further develop the role of EU instruments to support innovation (e.g. structural funds) • To promote knowledge partnerships and strengthen links between education, business, research and innovation, to promote entrepreneurship by supporting Young Innovative Companies

    16. EU2020 Flagship Initiative “Innovation Union” 3/3 Actions at Member State level: • To reform national and regional R&D and innovation systems to foster excellence and smart specialisation • To reinforce cooperation between universities, research and business • To implement joint programming and enhance cross-border cooperation in areas with EU value added and adjust national funding procedures accordingly • To ensure the diffusion of technology across the EU territory • To ensure a sufficient supply of science, maths and engineering graduates and to focus school curricula on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship • To prioritise knowledge expenditure, including by using tax incentives and other financial instruments to promote greater private R&D investments
