1 January 15, 2007 RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels1 Overview RFID Projects Cluster Meeting January 15, 2007 Brussels, Belgium ERA CO-ORDINATION STUDY Tender 13A – OJ 2006/S (SMART 2006/0035) ERA co-ordination initiative in the field of Networked Enterprise

2 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster 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 Networked Enterprise & RFID Unit (D5)… The Four Areas: Technologies for Business Networking Technologies for Digital Ecosystems Ambient Intelligence Technologies for the Product Lifecycle (+ RFID Initiative) Enterprise Interoperability Geographical Scope: EU-27 + Turkey Start: Dec 06 - End: Jun 08 (Duration: 18 months)

3 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels3 Specific Objectives of the Study (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 (including RFID-related European, national & regional policies); To analyse ongoing FP6 projects, clusters & policy-related activities in the Networked Enterprise & RFID Unit (D5) with respect to ERA co-ordination (Identify & analyse how those activities can contribute to ERA coordination); To compare the above two and identify synergies and key actions to be discussed with national and regional representatives (Propose a discussion Agenda among the Unit and National policy makers including future RFID related research); To identify the national & regional representatives from the public sector and national and regional decision-makers & experts (public & private sector) and initiate the discussions on policy level;

4 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels4 Specific Objectives of the Study (2/2) To identify the organisations that act as effective knowledge hubs in the key research areas of ICT for Networked Enterprise (including organisation acting as knowledge hubs in the RFID related research); 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 (incl. RFID related agenda); 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 (with focus on the next Work programme); To identify good practices and to define recommended actions to promote better knowledge flows and improved co-ordination at European, national and regional level.

5 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster 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 (4 areas incl. RFID) in contrast with most other relevant studies. The national / regional policies / initiatives are not often specifically refer to the four key research areas. Usually they cover a much broader ICT research area. The identification of relevant national / regional policies / initiatives and their correlation with the four key areas, is an ambitious and challenging task.

6 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels6 Potential Impact of the Study Improve co-ordination at European, national, regional level in the ICT for Networked Enterprise & RFID domains. Introduce more distinctively the related key research areas (incl. RFID related research) in the European / national / regional policy agendas & priorities. Create a long-lasting effect by introducing sustainable interfaces and structures to support networking, interaction and co-ordination among the ICT for Networked Enterprise & RFID community well after the end of the study. ERA co-ordination initiative in the field of Networked Enterprise is an opportunity to:

8 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels8 Where RFID projects might interested or get involved in… 1.Compendium of European, national and regional ICT policies / initiatives regarding the 4 key areas (incl. RFID). 2.Compendium of Units policy-related activities (incl. projects & clusters activities regarding ERA coordination). 3.Comparative analysis results (incl. the recommendations for better coordination). 4.Participation in the discussions, workshops, etc (e.g. regarding the coordination of European / national RFID related research policies / priorities). 5.ERA coordination initiative Web-site including web- forum, web-consultation, etc (+RFID policy related topics).

9 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels9 1. Regarding European, national, regional ICT Policies / Initiatives Tasks to be performed (among others) in the next 4 months… Collection of available material (European, national policies / initiatives, etc). Interviews with European & national policy makers. Analysis of European and national policies / Initiatives (28 National Reports and 1 European). Outcome: Compendium of European / national / regional policies / initiatives regarding the 4 key areas (incl. European & national RFID policies / initiatives)

10 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels10 2. Regarding Units, clusters and research projects ERA activities Tasks to be performed (among others) in the next 4 months… Interview P.Os. / cluster coordinators and the projects (incl. RFID related projects) regarding their ERA Co- ordination activities (creation of about 50 project profiles). Analysis of Strengths & Weaknesses of ERA activities at project, cluster and Unit level. Identification of missing activities / actions. Description of key success factors and areas. Identification of Good Practises. Feedback to projects / clusters. Outcome: Compendium of ERA co-ordination actions in the Networked Enterprise & RFID Unit

11 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels11 Projects Profiles We will contact coordinators soon (Feb-Mar 07) to: Collect specific information (description, expected impact, actual impact) on activities regarding ERA co-ordination (already implemented and planned). Create a project profile that will be later used to map and analyse / compare projects ERA co-ordination activities. Assess projects level of interest and commitment to provide input and / or participate in the study future activities (e.g. forum, workshops, discussions with decision makers, ERA coordination action plan, recommendations towards FP7 priorities, etc).

12 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels12 ERA co-ordination activities at project level – Indicative Examples Indicative examples….: Identification of focused research topics that could be coordinated in European, national & regional level. Identification and establishment of channels of communication with key European, national, regional actors and representatives interested in the above research domains. Recommendations for the definition of a mid/long term research agenda in the specific research areas. Contribution to Standards. Contribution to clustering activities. ….

13 ERA CO-ORDINATION INITIATIVE January 15, 2007RFID projects cluster meeting, Brussels13 3. Comparative Analysis Results A Comparative Analysis will take place targeting to: The identification of common synergies and interests among policies/priority actions.

The identification of key actions in the 4 research areas and the provision of recommendations. Synthesis of all the above in the 1 st Version of the Comparative Analysis (Jun 07). Another version will follow based on the web-consultation & workshops outcomes (Jun 08).
