1 The Steering Platform on Research, WBC-INCO.NET, SEE-ERA.NET … and related activities Klaus Schuch, Elke Dall Zentrum für Soziale Innovation Alpbach,

2 Context Steering Platform on Research for the Western Balkan countries established in June 2006 (Austrian Presidency & EC DG Research) FP6 supports SEE-science.EU, the Information Office of the Steering Platform (till April 2008) FP6 supports SEE-ERA.NET (development of a pilot joint call for research project proposals -> joint programme) FP6/FP7 support Coordination and Specific Support Actions in different fields (ERA WESTBALKAN+, SCORE, Balkan Agro Food Network, SMEs go Health, EPISTEP,...) FP7 supports Follow-up Activities and Extentions (WBC-INCO.NET, SEE-ERA.NET PLUS, etc.)

3 Context Western Balkan countries are becoming Associated Countries to the Framework Programme (already associated are: Albania, Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia) Specific International Cooperation Activities are therefore not possible, specific targeted calls etc. not to be expected (or only in exceptional cases) Perceived need in EU and WBC to coordinate efforts and to prioritize

4 Steering Platform on Research Regular meetings conveyed by –European Commission –Council Presidency –Western Balkan countries Current co-chairs are EC, France, Serbia Members: EU27 + AC + EC (Ministries responsible for Science) Vienna (AT), Berlin (DE), Thessaloniki (GR), Ljubljana (SI) Paris (FR), December 19, 2008 Liblice (CZ), May 28, 2009 Supported by WBC-INCO.NET (logistically, administrative)

5 WBC-INCO.NET Objectives Structuring and supporting S&T bi-regional dialogue, Developing concrete research priorities of mutual interest (with a special focus on FP7 priority fields), Supporting and transferring know-how to research community and NCPs, Enhancing production and use of knowledge based indicators, Creating a base for the further preparation of participation in multilateral RTD activities, Inclusion in FP7, brokerage, training, Increasing competitiveness and networking, etc.
