29 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue International mobility of researchers In 2010 in Cyprus the percentage of doctoral candidates (ISCED 6) who were citizens of another EU-27 Member State was 7.8%, in line with the EU 27 average of 7.8%₁. In Cyprus non-EU doctoral candidates were 1.6% of all candidates (EU average of 20.0%₂) 1 Researchers’ Report 2013 Country Profile: Cyprus 2 idem Participation in International networks A recent survey in ICT area demonstrated that the coordinators choose their research team in 49% from previous collaborations and 27% on the suggestion of other consortium members. This means that for a collaborative research, networking and cooperation skills may be as important as research expertise, which represents a barrier for newcomers who are not well connected to European networks.

38 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue Key highlights to be addressed Main findings from the scoping paper  Cyprus has the highest number of FP7 beneficiaries per head of population and the highest gain of FP7 monies per inhabitant in the EU 13 (78.80 €, EU 13 average is 13.5). The average number of € per beneficiary in Cyprus is higher that the EU 13 average: 176 k vs 167.  Cyprus success rate in applying for FP7 is 15.6 %, not far from the average of EU13 (18.1) but there is still a GAP with EU 28 average (21.7)

39 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue Questions and Answers

40 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue  What influence is due to structural issues:  quality of excellence in R&D  capability of drafting good proposals  awareness of the stakeholders  What influence have subjective and perception issues:  reputation of the R&D eco-system  openness for involvement in networks  talent to transform an idea into a proposal  What influence have objective issues:  date of full membership to the EU  size of the population  costs of wages  number of stakeholders targeted by the FP7 programme  availability of national budget  quality of research

41 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue  Questions related to performances of specific stakeholders groups  Are there some HEI not participating in FP7 cooperation projects? Should some of them be more proactive?  Are there some RCs not participating in FP7 cooperation projects? Should some of them be more proactive?  How to stimulate better participation of SMEs?  Questions on synergies with Structural Funds  Is ERDF funding perceived as investment for future participation in FP7/HORIZON 2020?  Is there any thought to develop synergies between ERDF and HORIZON 2020 policies?  Have R&D stakeholders difficulties to generate a dynamic flow of good ERDF projects?

42 Nicosia, Cyprus – April 25, First policy dialogue  What tools should be put in place in order to increase the quantity and the quality of the submitted projects?  How the awareness of stakeholders influence participation? Should Cyprus try to increase the amount captured per project instead of increasing the total number of projects funded?  To ensure the higher number of proposals to bring a larger number of primo-users of EU funding or to help current beneficiaries to be involved in more projects?  ………………………. Questions on where to go
