3 CT/DGRTD/G Political references Lisbon CouncilLisbon Council Barcelona CouncilBarcelona Council Spring European Councils :Spring European Councils : invest on Knowledge creation, Research and Innovation. Priority Actions for 2004: uMember state level uPolicy level European Technology Platforms uSector/cluster level through European Technology Platforms

4 CT/DGRTD/G Political references Commission CommunicationCommission Communication “ Investing in Research:an Action Plan for Europe” adopted 30 April 2003 putting forward an action plan. “ Investing in Research:an Action Plan for Europe” adopted 30 April 2003 putting forward an action plan. Commission Staff Working Document annexed to the Communication presenting: –R & TD investment for Growth –Developments in national polices towards Barcelona –Response from business sector –Contribution from 6FP –Approach to the open method of co-ordination –European Technology Platforms –Supply chain of human resources

5 CT/DGRTD/G Political references The Kok report[1] on the Lisbon Strategy has identified[1] 1.“increasing Europe's attractiveness for researchers and scientists” and 2.“making R&D a top priority” among the policy areas requiring urgent action. [1]

6 CT/DGRTD/G What is an European Technology Platform? Europeanlong-term visionInitiative for mobilisation of stakeholders (research, industry and regulatory and finance stakeholders, public and private bodies) sharing an European long-term vision on high impact sectors or leading technologies; trategic Research Agenda for the next decade(s)Primary output: European Strategic Research Agenda for the next decade(s) with recommendations for its implementation; EU industrial leadership society’s needs through investment in RTD.Final goal: to achieve EU industrial leadership & meet society’s needs through investment in RTD.

7 CT/DGRTD/G A new way of Governance Provide an open mechanism and consensus building process; beyondJoint initiatives by industry, Members states and Commission, with wide scope ( beyond RTD ); Foster co-operation and synergy among public authorities, users, regulators, industry, consumers etc.; Optimise the use of instruments and resources to encourage investment in research and innovation; Support the coherent implementation of different polices (industrial, environment, research, education, etc); Provide a mechanism to overcome barriers (norms, regulation, standards, safety, incentive measures, social acceptance etc) to innovation; Strengthen and organise EU research – ERA.

20 CT/DGRTD/G Realistic planning for future business success

21 CT/DGRTD/G Investment in Co-operative Research schemes For the 7FP The consultation process may end up with consensus view expressed in the Vision & Strategic Research Agenda(s) deriving… Actual thematic priorities for… Coordination of National Research Programmes Research Infrastructure Support to SMEs Technology Initiatives (JETI) Collaborative Research Human Resource Basic Research

22 CT/DGRTD/G Example of European Construction TP (i) At EU level to enhance openness, participation and reduce complexity: Set up links & new participation in ECTP Improve the awareness of the ECTP at National level Collaborate for the ECTP, vision 2030, SRA & roadmap Promote the creation of new National TPs (best practices) Disseminate the ECTP Outcome within all MS Involve & represent National authorities in the ECTP

23 CT/DGRTD/G Example of National Construction TP (ii) At National level a key role for a real impact:At National level a key role for a real impact: –Set up links with regional & local stakeholders –Improve the involvement of SME’s (drivers of innovation); –Define better a complete list of research needs; –Implement a dedicated training & education strategy; –Feedback to ECTP level (eg. National Social acceptance and awareness of actual needs…) –Identify & involve National/Regional research programmes; –Identify the gaps between National & EU regulations & policies that s will enhance innovation; –Bring at ECTP level only if there is an EU added value; –Identify and enhance National financial support schemes…...

24 CT/DGRTD/G Summary : ETP is a consensus building process for Strategic Investment in Research, Education/Skilling and Innovation; ETP is an Industrial/Govermental forum of Europe’s Industrial and Policy leaders deciding the true relationship between research and economic growth; ETP is a recommmended plan of research activities for individual or collective use as well as for European or National implementation;
