18 18 FoodLink  Instrument: Specific Support Action (SSA)  Duration: 2 years  Coordinator: Poznan Science and Technology Park, Poland  Participants: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania,Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Bulgaria (University of Plovdiv), Romania, Turkey  Rationale: The aim of the FOODLINK project is to promote among the researchers and industry operating in the ACC food sector the participation in the EU 6th Framework Program research and development projects.  Objective: FOODLINK project envisages a set of actions: information days in ACC countries, collection of cooperation profiles (project ideas, expertise offers) and finally a brokerage event at International Trade Fair for the Food Industry in Poznan, in September  Means: National databases; Leaflet preparation and translations; Common questionnaire preparation; Brokerage event Linking Associated Candidate Countries and EU Member States food sectors with a view to higher level of participation in the FP 6 projects

19 19 CEEC AgriPolicy  Instrument: Specific Support Action (SSA)  Duration: 2 years  Coordinator: Euroquality, France  Participants: 18 Participants – France, UK, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia,Croatia, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Serbia&Montenegro, Тurkey, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bulgaria (University of Plovdiv), Romania  Rationale: Given the importance of agriculture and rural economy in the European Union and in the national economies of the New Member States (NMS), the Candidate Countries (CC) and the Western Balkan Countries (WB), support actions aiming at establishing a sustainable relationship between policy makers and the research community should be implemented in this area Objective: T o support the formulation of Community agricultural policies by developing an open and interactive network of research organization in agricultural economics. To favor the development of the European Research Area. Means: Mapping of competencies - Identification of organisations; Network and expert groups creation; Questionnaire;Development of the web portal; Expert Groups; Mail shot and press releases Agro economic policy analyses of the new member states, the candidate states and the countries of the Western Balkans

20 20 BAFN (Balkan Agro Food Network) Setting up of agricultural & food research network in the Western Balkan  Instrument: Specific Support Action (SSA)  Duration: 24 months  Coordinator: Euroquality, France  Participants: France, Bulgaria (University of Plovdiv), Albania, FRYM ( Macedonia), Croatia, Bosnia & Hercogovina Serbia & Montenegro  Rationale: The Western Balkan Countries have an important agricultural potential. Their research capacities, which were of high quality have to be stabilised and reinforced. In the frame of the “association and stabilisation agreements” concluded between the EU and the five WB countries, and of the opening of the European Research Area, cooperation in research & technological development is encouraged  Objective: The objective of the project is support the opening of the European Research Area to the Western Balkan in the area of agricultural and food research.. It is targeted at research organisations (Universities, Research Centres). All discipline involved in agricultural and food science will be covered.  Means: Network building; Participation to community research program; Enhance awareness and training; Support policy developments  Activities: Network Creation, Database elaboration, Web portal development, Settlement of expert panel

21 21 EU AGRI MAPPING Mapping and foresight of agricultural and food research capacity in the New Member States and in the Candidate Countries  Instrument: Specific Support Action (SSA)  Duration: 2 years  Coordinator: Euroquality, France  Participants : Organizations from the 10 NMS and the 4 CCs take part in the project. Bulgaria (University of Plovdiv).  Rationale : Task 6 of the call aims at mapping the European agricultural research capacities. As an exhaustive mapping of the research capacities in the EU-25 would require a considerable effort, this proposal is voluntary focusing on the New Member States and Candidate Countries. This allows to improve the efficiency of the exercise and the quality of the results. Given the structural changes since the early 90's, little is known about the current situation of the research establishments from the Central and Eastern European Countries. This mapping exercise is thus very relevant. Objective : The objectives of the project are to provide reports that: 1) Identify the main players in agricultural research; 2) Describe how is organized agricultural and food research in the NMS & CC; 3) Formulate recommendations on the developments that would be desirable in agricultural research. To reach these objectives, the approach retained is a survey of the research establishments. The major technical objective of the project EU-AGRI MAPPING is to.  Means : E exhaustively screen research centers for all sub sectors of the agricultural and food research in all CC and NMS. An online, dynamic, free access and multilingual database will be elaborated and used as a tool to conduct the surveys

22 22 ACC Agri Food Platform Integrating the Associated Candidate Countries in the European Research Area through the establishment of a transnational technology platform on Agriculture, Food and Biotechnology  Instrument: Specific Support Action (SSA) - Submitted Project !!  Duration: 2 years  Coordinator: University of Plovdiv, Bulgaria  Participants: University of Plovdiv (Bulgaria); Euro Project (Bulgaria); Ministry of Science, Education and Sports (Croatia); Institute of Food Bio Resources (Romania); Troyka (Turkey); INRA (France); Senter Novem (The Netherlands)  Rationale: There are currently seven European Technology Platforms (ETPs) relevant to agriculture, food and biotechnology. Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) are not represented in these platforms. Given the strategic importance of ETP in future community research programmes, there is an urgent need to stimulate the integration of the ACC in these platforms  Objective: Linking with Candidate Countries through the integration of stakeholders from the ACC in European technology Platforms and stimulate, encourage and facilitate the participation of organisations from the Associated Candidate Countries (ACC) in European research programmes in the area of food, agriculture and biotechnology  Means: Establishment of the transnational platform; Participation in ETP; Implementation of SRA; Promotion of competencies
