1 © European Communities, 2011 Purpose Effective research and innovation policies are based on (implicit or explicit) visions of the future of science, technology and society. This foresight aims at developing a framework to join forces when responding to global challenges in an internationalized European Research Area (ERA) through the identification of thematic fields for S&T collaborations between the European Union (EU) and European Neighbourhood Countries, such as Russia, relevant to strengthen the ERA. For this purpose, promising fields that overlap in policy & strategy documents and in foresight studies in the regions under consideration shall be highlighted by means of a comparative analysis. Future thematic S&T priorities for the EU The successful realisation of the European Research Area (ERA) will require internationalization and open coordination of future S&T visions, which can be achieved through cooperative foresight. The ERA shall define the European way to excellence in research and be a major driver of European competitiveness in the globalised world. This shall be achieved by involving partners from neighbouring countries in addressing jointly future thematic priorities. In a first step we have scrutinized the latest European initiatives such as the Europe 2020 strategy, Innovation Union Flagship initiative, forward-looking studies of the European Commission (EC), Joint Programming, Joint Technology Initiatives, FP8 preparation, Member States and sectoral DGs of the EC to identify potential thematic priorities. Figure on the future EU thematic S&T priorities [created with on 20/04/2011] This review serves as a basis for the comparison of future thematic S&T priorities between the EU and Russia. In the word cloud on the future EU thematic S&T priorities greater prominence is given to (the highlighted) words that appear more frequently in the mentioned sources. Contact Mark Boden, JRC-IPTS, Vicente Carabias, JRC-IPTS, Alexander Sokolov, HSE, Manfred Spiesberger, ZSI, More information on: NOTES 1.Poster Title Replace the mock-up text of the poster title (Joint Research Centre) with the text of your own title. Keep the original font colour (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana – plain or bold. Keep the original font body size (102 pt or, preferably,120 pt) and the title on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the title on more than one line only if unavoidable. 2.Poster Subtitle Replace the mock-up text of the poster subtitle (Place Your Poster Subtitle Here) with the text of your own subtitle. Keep the original font colour (black). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in MetaPlusBook-Roman, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana. Keep the original font body size (72 pt) and the subtitle on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the subtitle on more than one line only if unavoidable. If your poster does not have a main subtitle, delete the subtitle mock-up text or its text-box altogether. 3.Poster Main Text and Illustrations Replace the mock-up text of the poster with your own text. Keep it within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes provided. Keep the original font colour (black). Should you need a second colour within your text, use the same one of the poster title (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-left justification. Set the main text in MetaPlusBook-Roman and the section headings in MetaPlusBold-Roman, if you own the typefaces. Otherwise, the main text in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana, and the section headings in their respective bold weights. Adjust the font body size and leading to the needs of your own text, depending on its overall length, for optimal display and legibility. Should you need a second level of text, set it in a smaller body size than that of your main text (and, in the case of photo captions, in italics, too). Place your illustrations (pictures, graphs, etc.) within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes. Adjust your text-flow as needed. 4.Contact Box Replace the mock-up contents of the contact box with your own data. Keep the contact box in place if possible. Place it elsewhere only if unavoidable for layout reasons, but in that case try, at least, to align it with some main element of the poster. 5.Additional Logos Should you need to display additional logos (e.g., of partner organizations or universities), reduce or enlarge them to a height within those of the JRC logo and the Directorate or Institute logo. Place any additional logos on the bottom of the poster, evenly spaced between the JRC and (if there is one) the Directorate or Institute logo, and vertically centred with them INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE Joint Future Thematic S&T Priorities for the European Union and its Neighbourhood Countries Meta analysis of S&T priorities in Russia (RU) This meta analysis is based on the results of S&T foresight studies and expert assessments conducted for revising the lists of national S&T priorities and Critical Technologies of the Russian Federation in , as well as on the results of a Delphi Study (National S&T Foresight 2025). In the following word cloud on the future Russian thematic S&T priorities greater prominence is given to (the highlighted) words that appear more frequently in the mentioned sources. Figure on the future RU thematic S&T priorities [created with on 20/04/2011] Outcomes of comparison on thematic S&T priorities The comparison of the word clouds confirms that the EU-RF Scientific and Technological Cooperation Roadmap is on the right track especially with S&T programmes in the fields of energy, transport, health, nanotechnology. Besides, it is worth mentioning that both reviews revealed that a strong focus lies on the technological implementation (including biotechnology). While the EU emphasizes thematic fields supporting a sustainable development, i.e. food, water and energy security, climate change, the Russian Federation calls apart from the similar topics environment, life systems and nature management also for information and telecommunication systems. Socio-economic areas and humanities are clearly underrepresented apart from ageing and population in the EU. The outcomes of this study will support the identification of future common S&T and innovation fields of mutual interest for cooperation programmes between the EU and neighbouring countries, and thus the internationalization of the ERA, which in a second phase shall be validated through expert surveys and workshops. The priority-setting and foresight exercises shall therefore provide later on policy options for establishing sustainable R&D and innovation cooperation programmes between the EU and European Neighbourhood Countries through the definition of common research agendas and respective allocation of funding.
