Technopolis Report Review of ESF instruments 1998-2004 Findings: Instruments clearly achieve their objectives effectively They involve 20% of relevant European leading scientists Instruments are very open to academia Bottom-up approach/standard procedures are advantages over EC-FPs ESF has the scope to play a bigger role Exploratory Workshops strengthen European collaboration à la carte Programmes oriented towards capacity building, open to new participants (emphasis PESC/LESC) Network scheme a plus (European added value): more inclusive work (GB funding vs MO funding) (emphasis SCSS, HSC) Overlap with COST actions
Technopolis Report Review of ESF instruments 1998-2004 Recommendations: Reduce administrative delays (MOs should loosen financial control) Reduce timelines (e.g. Exploratory Workshops) Reduce administrative handling Merge Programmes (and Networks) with COST Actions (efficiency & transparency) Increase public awareness of ESF & instruments Enhance industrial participation
