1 Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação Brussels, February 2006 Factors Influencing International Collaborations within Frontier Research

2 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Topics for Discussion  Who are the key stakeholders ? To Develop International Collaborations within Frontier Research, we Need to Address the Following Questions:  What tools exist to support the development of International collaborations?  What are the potential barriers and/or risks to international collaborations?

3 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Topics for Discussion  Government Stakeholders  Public/Private Research Institutions Stakeholders  University Research Stakeholders Who are the key stakeholders?

4 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Key Stakeholders Government Stakeholders  Profile - Drivers and leaders in R&D Policy development and management.  Role – Influence international R&D collaborations through financial incentives.  Level of Influence – High  Examples* - French Ministry of Research (France) - Framework Programme representatives (EU) * Well established list from NEST and IST Programmes (FP6).

5 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Key Stakeholders Public/Private Research Institution Stakeholders  Profile – The leading R&D Centers in the forefront of Basic Research.  Role – Establish specific research focuses and coordinate research activities.  Level of Influence – Moderate  Examples* - Max Planck Institute (Germany) - Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) - French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) * Well established list from NEST and IST Programmes (FP6).

6 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Key Stakeholders University Research Stakeholders  Profile - Active and longstanding Research Centers with well established graduate departments.  Role – Establish specific research focuses and coordinate research activities.  Level of Influence - High  Examples* - University of Lund (Sweden) - Université Pierre et Marie Curie (France) * Well established list from NEST and IST Programmes (FP6).

7 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Available Tools What tools exist to monitor Frontier Research activities within Europe?  Journals (e.g. European Journal of Operational Research).  Portals (e.g. ERA; FP7)  Conferences (e.g. ERA Conferences)  Organizations' activities (e.g. CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research, ESA – European Space Agency)

8 ChinaFrontier: China’s Realities from a Frontier Research Perspective February 2006 Available Tools What tools exist to monitor Frontier Research activities abroad from within Europe?  Journals with a focus on China if possible – (e.g. China-EU S&T Cooperation Promotion Office – CECO - Newsletter);  Portals with a focus on China if possible - (e.g. CECO);  International Conferences with a focus on China if possible – (e.g. EU-China Cooperation Forum on Information Society – April 2002, EU-China Conference on Digital Olympics – June 2005)
