1 January 9, 2007Kick-off meeting, Brussels1 Kick off meeting with the EC January 9, 2007 Brussels, Belgium ERA TENDER Tender 13A – OJ 2006/S (SMART 2006/0035) ERA co-ordination initiative in the field of Networked Enterprise

2 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 9, 2007Kick-off meeting, Brussels2 Overall Scope of the Study The aim: … to facilitate the networking and the European, national and regional co-ordination of the research activities in the four key areas of ICT for Enterprise Networking… The Four Areas: Technologies for Business Networking Technologies for Digital Ecosystems Ambient Intelligence Technologies for the Product Lifecycle Enterprise Interoperability Geographical Scope: EU-27 + Turkey

3 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 9, 2007Kick-off meeting, Brussels3 Specific Objectives 1/2 To analyse the main European, national and regional funded research and deployment ICT policies/initiatives closely linked with the four targeted key research areas; To analyse ongoing FP6 projects, clusters & policy-related activities in the Networked Enterprise & RFID Unit (D5) with respect to ERA co-ordination; To compare the above two and identify synergies and key actions to be discussed with national and regional representatives; To identify the national & regional representatives from the public sector and initiate discussions; To identify potential members of the community of national and regional decision-makers, as well as experts;

4 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 9, 2007Kick-off meeting, Brussels4 Specific Objectives 2/2 To identify the organisations that act as effective knowledge hubs in the key research areas of ICT for Enterprise networking; To set up the interfaces between national and regional authorities, the Commission and the projects and clusters in order to define and contribute to the follow-up of an action plan; To organise workshops (with European/ national/regional authorities, research programme managers, clusters), to promote co-ordination and establish a final action plan that could contribute to the definition of priorities in FP7; To identify good practices and to define recommended actions to promote better knowledge flows and improved co- ordination at European, national and regional levels.

5 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 9, 2007Kick-off meeting, Brussels5 Characteristics & Particularities of the Study Networking and co-ordination are the two key words that dominate the main objective of the study. The study targets a narrow / specific research area in contrast with most other relevant studies. The study combines a bottom-up (FP6 projects Policy level) and top-down approach (Policies/initiatives research). The national / regional policies / initiatives are not often specifically refer to the four key research areas. Usually they cover a much broader research area. Therefore: The identification of relevant national / regional policies / initiatives and their correlation with the four key areas, is an ambitious and challenging task.
