1 Forward Look Long Range Plan 2010 Scoping Workshop Dr. Thibaut Lery Science Officer Frankfurt Oct.2009

2 ESF was created in ESF in a nutshell The ESF provides a common platform for its Member Organisations in order to Advance European research and to explore new directions for research 80 Members in 30 countries Research funding organisations Research performing organisations Academies ESF in a nutshell

3 5 Rue du Parchemin Strasbourg Quai Lezay Marnesia Strasbourg ESF Offices ESF-COST office in Brussels, Belgium Oostende (MB office at VLIZ) ESF in a nutshell

4 Scientific Domains Humanities (SCH) Life, Earth and Environmental Sciences (LESC) Marine Science Medical Sciences (EMRC) Physical and Engineering Sciences (PESC) Polar Science Social Sciences (SCSS) Nuclear Physics (NuPECC) Space Sciences (ESSEC) ESF in a nutshell Material Sciences (2009)

5 5 ESF in a nutshell

6 6 The agency of agencies (10% public EU R&D) ESF in a nutshell

7 7 ESF Instruments ESF instruments Networking (150 k/yr for 5 yrs) Conferences, Workshops, Schools, Visit grants (up to 6 months) Networking + positions Foresight (240 k) Series (40 k) Full organisation 3-6 day event (15 k)

8 8 8 EUROCORES Programmes 31 Research Network Programmes 10 Exploratory Workshops (2007: 12, 2006: 15) 4 Forward Looks (1 in preparation) Support for Euroconference Series and Schools (~ 28 conferences) + Peer Review activities + Support for Temporary Expert Committees (Computational Sciences, Materials Sciences & Engineering) Physics and Engineering in figures PESC in a nutshell

9 9 Forward Look Goals Forward Looks enable Europes scientific community, in interaction with policy makers, to develop medium to long-term views and analyses of future research developments with the aim of defining research agendas at national and European level. Forward Look reports and other outputs such as ESF Policy Briefings assist policy makers and researchers in defining optimal research agendas and in setting priorities. Forward Look Goals Studies (information) Strategy (directions) Policy (guidelines) FORESIGHT

10 10 Forward Look Key Players The Steering Committee –One large Committee (6 to 12 members). –It will advise, guide and control FL activities. The Working Groups –One coordinator + several members per Working Group. –Scientific expertise representing the Community and the various strategic themes and areas (such as Industry, Academia, Policy makers, Media, etc.) ESF Office –as a facilitator, including support and control (ESF Staff) Partners Policy Makers and Researchers Forward Look Key Players

15 15 Design Questions What are the characteristics and dynamics of the field that is foresighted? What is the main question or problem that makes a Forward Look needed or appropriate? Can any sort of implementation of the results be expected and, if so, who should take care of the implementation? What expertise is needed to discuss the developments in the field and to what extent are external perspectives needed? What kind of specific interests or obstacles may be expected in the conduct of the foresight or in implementing the results? Forward Look Design

16 16 Forward Look Report Design State-of-the-Art review –Current state of research in the area and highlights of the major advances in the last years Scientific challenges –Impact of those advances on the research agenda –Indication of major knowledge gaps and potential hot topics –Identification of European strength and weakness Vision –Presentation of a vision with major goals that could provide directions for research in the medium and long term time frame –Implementation plan (in terms of infrastructure, institutional innovation, human resources, governance) Impact and Follow-up –Key stakeholders likely to play a key role in the implementation –Targeted recommendations –Follow-up mechanism to ensure delivery and avoid risks Forward Look Design

18 18 Key Actions for this meeting Review the current state of the art and recent important achievement in the respective fields Identify the open problems and, in particular, the hot topics Develop a strategy how best to tackle these open questions, experimentally as well as theoretically Indentify overlaps and synergies with other LRP2010 Themes European perspective and the corresponding worldwide context Start formulating recommendations and suggesting an action plan for the future. Finally, timing is key – To identify key events and actions to disseminate and publicise the results towards ESF Member Organisations, ESFRI, the European Commission, etc. and outside Europe (EU Presidency events, Political events, Large conferences,…) 18 Key Actions Remember: ESF serves the Science and the Scientists first
