3 Context: Needs in the Balkans Create research and innovation friendly environments Increase expenditure on RTDI (low BERD as special weakness) Specific support of applied research Strengthen connection between basic and applied research Enhance RTD capacity of industry and SMEs Improve strategy development and implementation Increase capacity to exploit policies and funding offered by EU …

4 Steering Platform on Research Regular meetings conveyed by –European Commission –Council Presidency –Western Balkan countries Current co-chairs are EC, Montenegro, Belgium handing over to EC, FYR of Macedonia, Hungary Members: EU27 + AC + EC Supported by WBC-INCO.NET (logistically, administrative) Next meeting will be held: on Wednesday

5 Guidelines (Mission) The Platform facilitates the interaction between the Western Balkan Countries, the EU member states, the candidate and potential candidate countries and other states associated to the Framework Programmes for RTD and the European Commission. Its main objective is to support the enhanced integration of the WBCs in the European Research Area. It is a strategic body to deal with European, multilateral and regional issues of Science and Technology policies in and with the WBCs. It acts as an information exchange centre, clearing house for joint ideas and activities, and coordination forum for needs, suggestions and proposals of the WBCs to the European Commission, the EU27, Candidate and Potential Countries and the countries associated to FP7 (AC) and vice versa. In this spirit, the Platform continues and intensifies the progress achieved under the EU-Balkan Countries Action Plan on Science and Technology.
