2 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov The Lisbon Agenda The 7 th Framework Programme for research (FP7) ICT research in FP7 Structuring European research (an example): eSafety – Intelligent vehicles to reduce the death toll on Europes roads Presentation outline

3 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Markets & Competition: Europe – A more attractive place to invest & work –Extend & deepen the internal market –Improve European and national regulation –Ensure open & competitive markets inside & outside Europe –Expand & improve European infrastructure Knowledge & innovation for growth –Increase & improve investment in R&D –Facilitate innovation & uptake of ICT & the sustainable use of resources –Contribute to a strong European industrial base Employment & Skills: Creating more & better jobs –Attract more people into employment & modernise social protection systems –Improve the adaptability of workers & enterprises & the flexibility of labour markets –Invest more in human capital through better education & skills The renewed Lisbon Agenda

4 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Markets & Competition Knowledge & innovation –Research policy –Information Society policy –Information space –Investment in ICT –Inclusion –Industrial policy Employment & skills Lisbon policies i2010 Innovation policies Lisbon: Policies for growth & jobs

5 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Industrial Policy Information Society Policy Research Policy Innovation policies Entrepreneurship Innovation policy Benchmarking Member States performance Open & competitive information economy Investing in ICT Inclusion European Research Area FP7 (including PPP) Investment in R&D (3% objective)

6 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov i for information space –To promote an open & competitive information economy i for innovation and investment in ICT –To improve Europes capacity to innovate in & through ICT i for inclusion –To promote a high level of accessibility & participation in the Information Society i2010: Policy for the information society & media

7 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Raise R&D investment (3% objective) Create a single market for research (ERA) –An area of free movement of knowledge, researchers & technology R&D excellence Improve human capital & skills base Build effective research infrastructures Framework Programmes (FP): –Strong competition: success rate 1/5 (in IST on average) –FP participants generally show higher levels of product/process innovations than non-FP participants –FP participants are more likely to patent (2-3 times more) Research policy

8 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Collaborative research –Continuation of FP6 European technology initiatives –Private-public partnerships aiming at world leadership in certain R&D domains Basic research –Competition of individual researchers/teams Making Europe more attractive to best researchers –Researcher mobility schemes Research infrastructures –Research networking infrastructures European Research Area –Improving coordination of national research programmes 44 bn 12 bn 7 bn 70 bn 2007 – 2013 (European Commission proposal) 70 bn Elements of future research: The 7th Framework Programme (FP7)

14 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov «Blue Sky» Innovation Applied R&D «Blue Sky» Innovation Applied R&D JTI Academic research Industrial / academic R&D Productisation Standards Piloting Education/skills Entrepreneurship Integrating the R&D value chain

15 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov To improve the quality of the environment through ICT for safe & efficient mobility Smarter Intelligent communication & interaction with other vehicles & with the transport infrastructure to improve efficiency & safety. Cleaner Improved traffic management through intelligent driver assistance systems, thus contributing to reduce polluting emissions Safer Active ICT-based safety systems & devices helping to prevent & mitigate the impact of accidents A policy-driven initiative: an Example

16 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov : More than 41,000 Europeans lost their lives on the roads The policy objective To halve the number of deaths by 2010

17 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov Greater transport efficiency Making better use of the capacity of the available infrastructure Managing varying demands Increased safety & comfort Improving the quality & reliability of information used by advanced driver assistance systems Allowing the implementation of advanced safety applications ICT enhances the support available to drivers & other road users. It provides for: The technology: Intelligent vehicles

18 Dr. R. Zobel – Gothenburg – 15 th Nov A joint industry-public sector initiative –e.g. European Commission, EU Member States, industry –Launched in April 2002 Objective: –To accelerate the development, deployment and use of intelligent, integrated safety systems to increase road safety & reduce number of accidents on Europes roads Multiple activities –eSafety Forum –Working Groups The initiative
