6 Basic Principles: Public calls for proposals detailed in annual work-programmes Peer review, competitive selection based on scientific excellence ( also for International Cooperation !) Trans-national cooperation Cost-sharing Participants own the results

7 Instruments: Specific International Co-operation Activities (SICA) Coordinated calls Twinning of projects Exchange partnership scheme / Mobility of researchers International Cooperation Capacities tools: – promote cooperation opportunities and – facilitate participation of researchers and research institutions from third countries in FP7. See the EUROPA Webside for calls & eligibility criteria

22 The EU’s post-2013 is in preparation: “Common Strategic Framework for Research & Innovation” (“Horizon 2020”) “Common” to all services involved in implementation of “Europe 2020 Strategy” and “Innovation Union Flagship”. This is thus not limited tot R&I services senso stricto, but also external affairs, development cooperation, …

23 A changed context: – The major societal challenges are world-wide; – Cooperation needed, no isolation – Challenge and innovation strategies developed by all major regions and countries --> there will be excellent opportunities for encourageing joint biregional “win-win” approaches for innovation through international cooperation;

24 This implies emphasis on: Research & innovation in support to addressing major societal challenges as identified by EU: – Global change – Scarcity of ressources – Ageing ~ energie, climate change, health, food security, …
