3 November 20051 Forest-Based Sector Technology Platform
3 November 2005 2 For the 7th R&D Framework Programme, EU Commision has created a new tool, Technology Platform, characterised by Shared vision Long-term perspective (2030) Major challenges Technology Platform – A new tool
3 November 2005 3 Vision document (stage 1) Shared Vision Key Challenges Strategic Objectives Strategic Research Agenda, including plan for funding (stage 2) Implementation (stage 3) Key deliverables of a Technology Platform
3 November 2005 4 Some 30 proposals for TP exist, all of them aiming at influencing the EU research programmes. What is expected from the stakeholders? Active participation Commitment to the shared vision and support of the SRA and its implementation Technology Platforms – strong competition
3 November 2005 5 EU Framework Programmes (FP) for Research and Development Run in five years period Several instruments for project funding Now the 6th R&D FP (2002-2006), 17 bill. euros Next the 7th R&D FP (2007-2013), proposed budget 73 bill.euros
3 November 2005 6 Funding mechanisms FP7 2007-2013 73 B EUR European Research Council Joint European Technology Initiatives JETI (5-6) TP Evaluation Technology platforms (~ 32) Integrated projects Infrastructures Basic research etc. TP FTP TP National public funding Industry funding EIB, banks Etc.
3 November 2005 7 CEI-Bois 1, CEPF 2 and CEPI 3 have started a project to set up a Technology Platform for the forest-based sector. Objectives of the project: Organise the production of a vision document which includes e.g. common vision for the sector, challenges and strategic goals. Mobilise key stakeholders to participate in the process. Organise the development of the Strategic Research Agenda and other deliverables. Planning the implementation stage. Forest-Based Sector Technology Platform (FTP) 1 European Confederation of Woodworking Industries 2 Confederation of European Forest Owners 3 Confederation of European Paper Industries
3 November 2005 10 Is of a broad private and public interest. Concerns all EU-countries. Needs to interlink different parts of the forest- based sector. Is characterised by long and complicated supply chains from tree to consumer. Requires access to a multiplicity of competencies and experiences. Why a technology platform? The sector
3 November 2005 11 FTP aims at Meeting the multifunctional demands on forest resources and their sustainable management. Strengthening competitiveness. Strengthening position as the global technology leader. Promoting sustainability - a competitive advantage for the forest-based sector. Carrying out more efficient R&D.
3 November 2005 12 The European Forest-Based Sector Vision for 2030 The European forest-based sector plays a key role in a sustainable society. It comprises a competitive, knowledge-based industry that fosters the extended use of renewable forest resources. It strives to ensure its societal contribution in the context of a bio-based, customer-driven and globally competitive European economy.
3 November 2005 13 Strategic objectives of the FTP Meeting the multifunctional demands on forest resources and their sustainable management. Enhancing availability and use of forest bio- mass for products and energy. Development of intelligent and efficient manufacturing processes, including reduced energy consumption. Development of innovative products for changing markets and customer needs.
3 November 2005 14 Strategic objectives of the FTP Establishing a more efficient innovation system, including a better-structured research community with higher efficiency. Deepening the sectors scientific basis, including taking advantage of emerging sciences. Establishing education and training schemes that meet high requirements. Improving communication with the public and policy makers.
3 November 2005 15 Key benefits of FTP Engages all key stakeholders and provides a forum for public-private dialogue and partnership. Facilitates targeted investments in research and development. Mobilizes and focuses existing research and development capabilities, thereby fostering a more efficient approach to innovation. Stimulates coordination of European and national research agendas. Supports the ongoing development of a relevant knowledge base for the sector. Contributes to the overall growth of the EU economy.
