1 Actions supporting EU-China Cooperation in Science & Technology Denis Fourmeau, Counsellor Science, Technology, Energy & Environment Section Delegation of the European Commission to China and Mongolia

2 Structure lChina and the EU’s Framework Programme for Research (FP) lActions to support the mobility of researchers

3 The Framework Programme lThe EU’s research funding programme. èEvery year, thematic calls for proposals are launched. èResearch entities (Universities, institutes, companies…) team up to apply for funding with a complete research proposal. lChinese partners can participate in the FP: èAll calls are open to the participation of non-EU countries. èChina being an International Cooperation Partner Country (ICPC), Chinese partners are entitled to receive funding. èSome calls will specifically target regions or countries.

4 6° Framework Programme lFP6 ( ) was a strong tool for EU-China research cooperation lChina, a very active non-EU country in FP6 èSecond non-EU country in terms of funds received èChinese partners took part in almost 200 research projects with 380 participations. For the Chinese partners, this meant collaboration with more than non-Chinese partners. èThe total budget of these projects represented 1.1 billion€. Of this total, the European Commission’s contribution amounted to 67%.

5 7° Framework Programme: What is new? lMain new elements compared to FP6: èDuration increased from five to seven years ( ) èTotal budget increased by 60%: 53 Billion€ èFundamental research as well

6 1.Information and communication technologies (9.1 Bln €) 2.Health (6.1 Bln €) 3.Transport (including aeronautics) (4.2 Bln €) 4.Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies (3.5 Bln €) 5.Security and space (2.8 Bln €) 6.Energy (2.4 Bln €) 7.Environment (including climate change) (1.9 Bln €) 8.Food, agriculture and biotechnology (1.9 Bln €) 9.Socio-economic sciences and the humanities (623 M€) Nine themes 7° Framework Programme: Main topics

8 7° Framework Programme: EU-China Cooperation lAfter 1.5 year of running, FP7 has already more than 100 projects including Chinese participants èAll calls for proposals are open to Chinese participation l5 November 2008: EU-China S&T Agreement Steering Committee èAgreement for the setting-up of strategic, co-funded projects in areas of common interest è2009 will be the first year of this EU-China common research programme

9 Mobility of Researchers lA strong mobility of researchers is the key factor for the establishment of a strong S&T cooperation lSeveral actions in support of EU-China mobility of researchers. èMarie-Curie Fellowships èScience & Technology Fellowships – China (STF) èInternational Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) èEuraxess-links China, network of EU researchers in China

10 lMarie Curie fellowships: lOutgoing International Fellowships (OIF): For Europeans researchers who want to work outside the EU lIncoming International Fellowships (IIF): For no-EU researchers who want to work in the EU lAt least 4 years after graduation (post doc) lProposal submitted by the researcher together with the host organization lFor 1 to 2 years lSalary plus contribution towards research related costs lEventually 1-year return phase for researchers from China lA very competitive international programme! Mobility of Researchers: Marie Curie Fellowships

11 Mobility of Researchers: STF - China lIndividual fellowships for young EU researchers who want to come the China l6-month intensive language and culture training + 18 months in a Chinese research laboratory lMonthly allowance, installation allowance, 2 round trips to Europe lOpen to all research fields lAround 32 years old, minimum 2 years research experience lNext call for proposals: Summer 2009

12 lSTF: Science & Technology Fellowships - China. lFirst Call: 30 EU young researchers will come to China early 2009 Mobility of Researchers: STF - China

13 Mobility of Researchers: IRSES lStrengthen sustainable research partnerships between EU and non-EU research institutions lNot mobility programme for individual career development! lBased on joint programmes of researchers exchange between at least 2 EU entities from 2 EU countries and 1 non-EU entity lOnly funds mobility between EU and non-EU country lShort-term exchanges (up to 1 year)… lBut total Exchange Programme duration: 2 to 4 years lCoordinator must be from an EU country lNo restriction of size. lNEW CALL FOR PROPOSALS OPENED: 25 November 2008 with deadline in March 2009

14 Mobility of Researchers: Euraxess-links China lEuraxess-links China lA network of EU researchers in China. Conceived as a way to reinforce EU-China S&T Cooperation. lSurvey results presented in Beijing in May 2008 lTo be launched in January lAlready 2 existing: in US and Japan
