1 ERA 2030 – the ERAB view ERA 2030 – the ERAB view OECD - TIP Workshop on Future Orientations for Science, Technology and Innovation Policy 14-15 December 2009 Paris JC.

2 ERA 2030: ERAB’s STRATEGIC VIEW http://ec.europa.eu/research/erab/publications_en.html
3 BACKGROUND ERAB = successor of EURAB Initiated by Commissioner and nominated by EC (similar to ERC ScC procedure) Requested to think: - out of the box, long term - on demand and own initiative (VAT, Mid term FP7) 1 annual report/year Fully operational 1st Q, 2008
4 European Research Area Board High level triple helix representative composition Chair: John Wood (ex-ESFRI chair)
5 To understand ERAB’s thinking 1. Their remit: Key question (1st year): European research by 2030? 3 fundamental drivers: - Globalisation of the world and of the world of science - Virtualisation (more than e-science) - Grand challenges
6 To understand ERAB’s thinking 2. Research world has moved to mode 2 European researchers feel acute global pressure European science is no longer per definition seen as sub optimal European research (policy) system as it is not seen as fully apt to make the changes needed. Scope is thus much more ERA than EC
7 The view: New Renaissance In order to cope with the challenges ahead we need a ‘New Renaissance’. The ‘New Renaissance’, is a paradigm shift in how we think, live and interact, as well as a paradigm shift regarding the role and place of science in society. The new renaissance calls for our rationality and creativity - the fundamentals of science - to face the challenges and to help ‘’inventing’’ a new way of living. The ‘New Renaissance’ needs a thriving and open ERA by 2030.
8 The view Ambition: ERA is instrumental for realising a new Renaissance in Europe as a call to face the challenges ahead and to help develop a new way of living. Strategy: Six policy themes to underpin the development of ERA. Benchmarks: 30 milestones to measure progress on the layout of ERA.
9 1.A united ERA across Europe 2.An ERA driven by societal needs to address the ‘Grand Challenges’ 3.An ERA based on a shared responsibility between science, policy and society 4.An ERA of open innovation between all public and private stakeholders 5.An ERA to deliver excellence 6.An ERA of cohesion across the continent strategic approaches for ERA 6 6
10 A united ERA to permit ideas and people to move freely across a dynamic, open society
11 An ERA driven by societal needs to address the ‘Grand Challenges’
12 An ERA with shared responsibilities for science, policy and society
13 An ERA of open innovation between all public and private stakeholders
14 An ERA of excellence where risk-taking will be the guiding principle for ERA research policies
