2 1. Regions of Knowledge under FP7 (*Info provided by the European Commission) 2. TRANS REG NCP services 3. Research-driven clusters: success stories

3 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 3 Regions of Knowledge (RoK) FP7 new regional dimension, under Capacities Specific Programme CAPACITIES Research Infrastructures Research for the benefit of SMEs Regions of Knowledge: 126 Meuro Research Potential Science in Society Support to the development of coherent research policies International Cooperation

4 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 4 Regions of Knowledge (RoK) Development of regional research-driven clusters to: Strengthen regions capacity for investing in RTD and carrying out research activities Produce research strategies that contribute to regional economic development

5 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 5 Research-driven cluster under FP7-RoK Triple helix: At least one research entity, one business entity and one regional authority from the same geographical region Other actors (consultants, associations, etc.) and actors from different geographical area additionally to triple helix

6 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 6 Research-driven cluster under FP7-RoK

7 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 7 Open CALL: REGIONS Trans-national cooperation of regional research driven clusters Participants Consortia of at least 3 regional research-driven clusters from 3 different Member States or Associated countries Coordinator : either a regional authority or a fully fledged RDC (with legal entity) Enhancing the sustainable use of natural resources and of the natural and man-made environment, covering four themes: Water management, Forest management Soil and land management Waste management … in support of the Lead Markets Initiative

8 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 8 Open CALL: REGIONS Deadline for submission : 27/01/2009 Budget: 16,1 Meuro (1-3 Meuro per project) Duration: up to 36 months Financing rate: up to 100 % of eligible costs Funding scheme: CSA –CA, coordinating action …and synergies with Structural Funds to reinforce R&D investment

9 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF 9 Open CALL: REGIONS Analysis, development and implementation of research agendas Mentoring of regions with a less developed research profile for capacity building (compulsory) Initiatives to improve integration: definition of joint action plans, business plans – following SWOT analysis and definition of RTD needs Measures towards the implementation of the JAP International cooperation activities (optional) Dissemination activities but: - JAP finalized during the first half of the project - Implementation of JAP/research not funded under RoK

10 Georgia Tzenou, EKT/NHRF Expected impact/outcome Regional economic growth and competitiveness through the definition of strategies integrating research Response to the needs of regional business communities Mobilisation of local, national and community funds (including SF) to implement defined regional action plans in support of regional economic development Increase in and more effective investment in R&D Inclusion of more regions into the ERA
