23 23 Ukraine participation in FP7 Preliminary Conclusions  Encouraging results overall  Higher participation with respect to FP6  Difficulties in some areas (Health, FAB, ICT, NMP, Space)  Full potential not reached  Success rate below average*

24 24  Opening of the FP Participation of all third countries Funding of ICPC countries  Two-pronged approach “Mainstream”: Instruments for targeted cooperation “Specific”: INCO leveraging/supporting instruments  International agreements Association to the FP S&T cooperation agreements What are the tools for supporting /enhancing International S&T Cooperation?

29 29 A. Boundary Conditions International cooperation in FP7 - Guiding principles => Priority Setting

30 30 1.Build on previous exercises and actions 2.Identify areas/institutes 3.Concrete suggestions (not shopping lists) aligned with national priorities 4.Focus on priorities of FP7 5.Addressing issues for ENP 6.Output from instruments in FP7 CAPACITIES SP (BILAT, INCONET, ERANET) 7.Use all Instruments (Bilateral & Regional) B. Know your strengths / weaknesses / priorities and your interlocutor’s

31 31 Support through instruments in FP7 CAPACITIES SP Priority setting, targeting, regional dialogues INCONETs Awareness raising, brokerage, participation BILATs Partnership building with/amongst Member States ERANETs INCONETs BILATs Reciprocity ACCESS4EU C. Exploit the available policy instruments ERA-WIDE

32 32 Integrating Europe's neighbours into the ERA (ERA-WIDE): Objective: To reinforce the cooperation capacities of research centres located in the ENP countries, which are not associated to FP7, in the areas of the thematic priorities of FP7. CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Objectives

33 33 CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Country Coverage ERA-WIDE proposals should target only one of the following countries: Mediterranean Partner Countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Lebanon, Syria Eastern Europe and South Caucasus: Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan

34 34 The call is addressed to research centres of proven high level S&T capacities, which are located in an ENP country not associated to FP7; The proposal should target only one such centre; The consortium should however include additional participants, in particular from the MS and/or AC so as to fulfil the objectives of the activity; The research centre targeted by the proposal should be the coordinator of the proposal. CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Participants profile

35 35 CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Participants profile Research centre: existing working unit, either working independent or functioning within locally established research organisation The centre should not be a subsidiary or branch of an organisation established in another country

36 36 ERA-WIDE actions: Networking with research centres in MS or AC in view of disseminating scientific information, identifying partners and setting up joint experiments; Developing training modules to build competency and facilitate the participation of these centres in FP7; Developing research centres’ strategy in order to increase their scope (regional coverage, activities) and to improve their responses to the socio-economic needs of their countries and of the region. CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE - Activities

37 37 ERA-WIDE impact: Contribution to RTD capacity building in the target country, Enhanced participation of the country in FP7, Increased scope (regional coverage, subjects, activities) of the centres with increased linkage with economic and social environment, Networking with research centres in MS and AC (mobilising human and material resources, disseminating scientific information, facilitating communication…), Increased job opportunities in the country for young scientists. CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Expected Impact

38 38 CAPACITIES - International Cooperation ERA-WIDE – Call fiche Call identifier: FP7-INCO-2010-6 Call publication date: 30/07/09 Call closure date: 19/01/10 Indicative budget: 7.5 M€ (3 M€ for Eastern countries & 4.5 M€ for MPC) Funding scheme: CSA-SA, typ 0.5 M€/project for 3 years Eligibility criteria: min 1 participants (SA), the consortium must include the research centre that is targeted in the proposal.
