4 75 Member Organisations in 30 countries, beyond the European Union Research funding organisations Research performing organisations Academies What is ESF:
5 About ESF: ESF provides a common platform for our Member Organisations (MOs) in order to: advance European research explore new directions for research at the European level Through its activities, ESF serves the needs of the European research community in a global context.
8 Science Strategy Foresight and Policy Briefs Forward Looks INIF Member Organisations Fora Policy Briefing Reports Exploratory Workshops
9 Forward Look Series of workshops with foresighting character. The state-of-the-art in +10 years and what actions should be taken Expert recommendations with an endorsement by the ESF Governing Coiuncil
10 Science Synergy Cooperation platform for MOs & scientists ESF Research Networking Programmes (e.g., NES) ESF Research Conferences EUROCORES - European Collaborative Research

14 Fundamental research in the European Research Area?! Real Part
15 Definitions European Research Area, Framework Programme 7 European Research Council European Strategic Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) European Science Foundation How to do research?
16 What is the European Research Area? In 2000, the EU decided to create the European Research Area (ERA) to: enable researchers to benefit from world-class infrastructures and work with excellent networks of research institutions; share, teach, value and use knowledge effectively for social, business and policy purposes; optimize and open European, national and regional research programmes in order to support the best research throughout Europe and coordinate these programmes to address major challenges together; enable Europe to contribute to global development and take a leading role in international initiatives to solve global issues.
17 What is the European Research Area? Goals: To enhance research careers in Europe, incite industry to invest more in European research – contributing to the creation of sustainable growth and jobs in the EU. To become a central pillar of the EU 'Lisbon Strategy' for growth and jobs. Green paper: (http://ec.europa.eu/research/era/consult ation-era_en.html#greenpaper)
18 Framework Programme 7 FP 7 (2007 – 2013) to implement ERA make Europe the knowledge-based "most dynamic competitive economy in the world"… (Lisbon goals, 3% GDP etc). to bundle all research-related EU initiatives in reaching the goals of growth, competitiveness and employment; along with a new Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), Education and Training programmes, and Structural and Cohesion Funds for regional convergence and competitiveness…
19 Frame work Programme 7 FP7 2007 –2013 | Specific Programmes Cooperation – Collaborative research32.4 G Ideas – Frontier Research 7.5 G People – Marie Curie Actions 4.8 G Capacities – Research Capacity 4.1 G + JRC non-nuclear research Euratom direct actions – JRC nuclear research Euratom indirect actions – nuclear fusion and fission research (RI: 1.7 G)
20 Framework Programme 7 Thematic Cooperation Collaborative research projects (Collaborative projects; Networks of Excellence; Coordination/support actions) Collaborative research projects (Collaborative projects; Networks of Excellence; Coordination/support actions) International Cooperation Coordination of non-Community research programmes (ERA-NET; ERA-NET+; Article 169) Coordination of non-Community research programmes (ERA-NET; ERA-NET+; Article 169) Joint Technology Initiatives (Article 171) Support will be implemented across all themes through:
21 ERANETs, ERANETs + Coordination of national activities Networking of national or regional programmes (ERA-NET, ERANET+) For Programme Managers; Open calls for proposals starting 2007; Coordination at European level Coordination and cooperation between Framework Programme and COST, EUREKA and other programmatic and international organisations (CERN, ESA, ESO, EMBL, ESRF, ILL etc.)
22 European Research Council –Reward the best researchers –Researchers gain high European and international visibility –Keep (young) researchers in Europe –Favour brain gain and reverse brain drain –Competition improves quality of research & allows benchmarking –High quality frontier research will stimulate early-stage industrial investment & boost European share in IP and start-ups Objectives:
23 European Research Council –Two streams of activity are foreseen: ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant scheme (ERC Starting Grant) –Call for proposals to be published in early 2007 ERC Advanced Investigator Researcher Grant scheme (ERC Advanced Grant) –Call for proposals at a later stage in 2007 Two Funding Streams:
24 European Research Council Initial structure for ERC development Scientific Council Directorate S Implementation of the Ideas programme European Commission DG Research ERC political negotiation S1: Strategic matters and relations with the ScC S2: Management S3: Logistical support S4: Administration & finance
25 European Strategic Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) ESFRI - launched in April 2002. It brings together representatives of EU Member States and Associated States, appointed by Ministers in charge of Research, and one representative of the European Commission. The role of ESFRI is to support a coherent approach to policy-making on research infrastructures in Europe, and to act as an incubator for international negotiations about concrete initiatives. ESFRI – Roadmap of research infrastructures (EUROHORCS/EC)
