Info-day FP6/NMP, Romanian Academy, 17 Jan ROMNET-ERA: Another SSA: ROMNET-ERA: Inventory and networking of Research Centres with a potential for participation in FP6 Topics: priority 1 (partial), 2 (partial), 3 and 5 Coordinator: IMT-Bucharest Other SSA coordinated by IMT: MINAEAST-NET, MINOS-EURONET

17 Dan Dascalu. Info-day FP6/NMP, Romanian Academy, 17 Jan The main target of the project is to provide a substantial contribution in bringing Romania in a better position to integrate in ERA The main target groups at the national scale are: a) the scientific community scattered in more than 600 research centres; b) the community of innovative SMEs which do not have yet the experience and motivation to participate in FP 6 The core of the whole process is performing the inventory, the screening and the networking of the high-quality research centres Restructuring for integration in ERA will be the only realistic chance of the Romanian research to become competitive. The consortium putting forward this proposal has the competence and the authority to address the local scientific community and has the full support of national authorities

18 Dan Dascalu. Info-day FP6/NMP, Romanian Academy, 17 Jan Inventory as a pre-requisite for networking We cannot start directly with the networking. First step: the inventory of the research centres (as well as of innovative SMEs), with their potential and their offer/request for collaboration Identifying of research groups (from three separate research systems: national R&D institutes, university research centers, research units of the Romanian Academy) will be focused on some priorities of FP 6, catalyzing the participation to EU projects.

19 Dan Dascalu. Info-day FP6/NMP, Romanian Academy, 17 Jan First an inventory of the Romanian centers of research will be realized Today the information about these centres is spread over a large number of sources and difficult to access. The number of centres involved in networks is very small. The visibility of these centres is low and their participation to FP 6 is below expectations. The project will provide public and interactive electronic databases, in English, that will display information about scientists and research centers, about international research projects involving Romania and the external partners of Romanian organizations, as well as the offer/request of collaboration (including scientific services)

Moreover, another factor was their connection to new materials in microtechnologies (4M), micro-nano (PATENT), nano-bio (Nano2Life) and micro-nano-bio (ASSEMIC) focus. The orientation towards mixed technologies, or converging technologies (see above) will be an important feature of the activity. Extremely representative for this evolution it is the presence in the above cluster of two NoEs from NMP, namely 4M and Nano2Life, whereas two others: Nanofun-Poly and Inside.Pores accepted to be associated to the above cluster. So did also SENSATION, an IP from IST (again micro- nanosystems). The orientation towards mixed technologies, or converging technologies (see above) will be an important feature of the activity.
