  1. International scientificco-operationin FP6 ELOISE CONFERENCE Portoroz, 15-18 November 2004 by C. Fragakis

  2. Contents • A European Research Area open to the world • Strategic objectives • International scientific co-operation in the Sixth Framework Programme • Three major routes for international scientific co-operation in FP6 • Specific measures in support of international Opening of “Focusing and Integrating Community Research” to third country organizations (I) • co-operation (II) • International mobility of researchers (III) • How can Third Countries participate in FP6 • River-Twinned Basins

  3. A European Research Area open to the world • “The European Research Area must be opened up to the rest of the world. This will enable EU countries, and third countries, to benefit from international cooperation in Science & Technology, thereby paving the way for closer political and economic relations.” • (P. Busquin, Commissioner for Research) • The strategic objectives of a European Research Area open to the world are laid down in Commission communication “The international dimension of the European Research Area” (COM(2001) 346 final).

  4. Strategic objectives • Make the Area more attractive to the best scientists and make it a world class reference centre • Enable European researchers and industrialists to access knowledge and technology available elsewhere in the world • Develop scientific and technological activities useful to the implementation of EU foreign and development aid policy • Enlist the S&T resources of the European Union and of third countries in initiatives that provide a response to significant world problems of concern to the Community • Communication of the Commission, The international dimension of the European Research AreaCOM(2001), 346 fin. 25.6.01

  5. Three major routes for international scientific co-operation in FP6 • Opening of “Focusing and Integrating Community Research” to third country organizations (with substantial funding) • Specific measures in support of international co-operation • International mobility of researchers • Over and above these three major routes, the international dimension is a cross-cutting issue which concerns the whole Framework programme

  6. Opening of “Focusing and Integrating Community Research” to third country organizations (I) • Participation to Community activities • participation of researchers, teams and institutions from third countries in projects within • the Priority Thematic Areas of Research, • Specific activities covering a wider field of research • Budget of 285 million Euro for third country participation

  7. Opening of “Focusing and Integrating Community Research” to third country organizations • Strategic objectives: • To help European researchers, businesses and research organisations in the European Union and in the countries associated with the Framework programme to have access to knowledge and expertise existing elsewhere in the world • To help ensure Europe’s strong and coherent participation in research initiatives related to issues arising at the world level and being the subject of international or global efforts • Overall focus • Community interest

  8. Specific measures in support of international co-operation (II) • Dedicated international cooperation activities which are relevant to some groups of countries or regions with own calls for proposals • Budget: 315 million Euro • Strategic objective • To lend support, in the scientific and technological field, to the implementation of the Community’s foreign policy and development aid policy • Overall focus • mutual interest

  9. Specific measures in support of international co-operation • These activities will be carried out: • To complement the activities in the thematic priorities • By means of specific targeted research projects of a limited scale, actions to coordinate national efforts and, specific support measures • Problem oriented approach on a regional basis, policy dialogue and prioritization • Research priorities defined on the basis of • the interests and objectives of the Community’s political partnership with the different groups of countries • the particular economic and social needs of countries and regions concerned

  10. International mobility of researchers • Incoming fellowships with possibility for “return ticket” • to work and undertake research training in Europe • provision to assist fellows to return to their countries of origin in case of emerging and transition economies and developing countries • Outgoing fellowships • to be awarded to research workers from EU and Associated Countries to work in established third country research centres • requires submission of a coherent individual training programme involving a first phase abroad followed by mandatory second phase in Europe

  11. How can Third Countries participate in FP6 • Who can participate? • All third countries: in addition to minimal number of participants from Member States and Associated countries • Who can be funded? • All third countries • INCO target countries (developing countries, Mediterranean partner countries, Western Balkan countries, Russia and the other NIS): within the allocation earmarked in the budget (285 million Euros) • Other third countries: if provision is made in work programme or if necessary to carry out the RTD activity

  17. Community Research E u r o p e a n C o m m i s s i o n RIVERTWIN • Objectives • Develop, adjust, test and implement an existing integrated regional model for the strategic planning of water resources management in twinned river basins in Benin and Uzbekistan. • To contribute to the EU WFD, the MDGs defined by the WSSD and the EU WI for Africa and EECCA and to promote mutual transfer of technology between European and Third countries.
