6 WP3: Top-down policy driven on Research, WP4: and Innovation Based on Sub-regional dialogues organised annually in the three sub-regions, as preparation to Bi-regional dialogue R&I dialogue with Mexico & Central America (Mexico) R&I dialogue with Andean countries (Colombia, Chile) R&I dialogue with MERCOSUR (Brazil).....Answering specific demands but searching for common challenges..... High-level Bi-Regional platform meetings, inviting other MS and LA countries not in EULARINET (bi-annually) Collaborative RTD portfolio Proposing appropriate instruments Implementing changes to address bottlenecks Enhancing research-industry alliances, innovation and technology transfer. Improving EU-LAC Science-Industry technology transfer.


8 EU-LAC Policy Dialogue 1/2 EU-LAC Political Summits – First Summit 1999, Rio, Brazil – placed S&T on agenda – Second Summit 2002, Madrid, Spain – Third Summit 2004, Guadalajara, Mexico – Fourth Summit 2006, Vienna, Austria – Fifth Summit 2008, Lima, Peru ALCUE Brasilia Action Plan 2002: a shared vision for bi- regional S&T Cooperation, S&T ministers set priority on: - Health and Quality of Life - Information Society - Competitive Growth in the Global Environment (agro industry, clean technologies in agriculture and industry) - Sustainable Development and Urbanisation (water management, clean energy) - Cultural Heritage - Cross-cutting issues (innovation, education, training)

9 EU-LAC Policy Dialogue 2/2 Launch of the ALCUE Knowledge Area in Madrid, 2002 Guadalajara Declaration confirming the ALCUE Knowledge Area and need for linking education, science, technology, information & communication and innovation. The Vienna Summit endorses the Conclusions of the Salzburg senior officials meeting updating priority domains: - Health and Qualiy of Life - Information and Communication Technologies - Sustainable Development and Environment - Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology - Energy (in particular renewables) - Cultural Heritage - Cross-cutting issues and reiterating ALCUE Knowledge Area.

10 EU-LAC Policy Dialogue: Present Framework Documents

11 IMPACT OF EULARINET ACTIVITIES ON THE JIRI Subregional Meetings 2009 BIregional Meeting 2010

12 IMPACT OF THE JIRI ROAD MAP ON EULARINET Action Plan Item a) Establish a regular bi-regional dialogue on science, research, technology and innovation to consolidate EU-LAC cooperation and to update common priorities, encourage mutual policy learning and ensure the proper implementation and effectiveness of cooperation instruments The co-chairs will ensure continuity between SOMs, notably by regular information regarding progress with implementing the road map. They will be assisted by senior officials as agreed by each region. INCONETs and other projects will support the implementation of specific actions as appropriate. Establish working groups between meetings to develop and enhance cooperation in the following priority areas: bioeconomy, including food security; biodiversity and climate change; ICT for meeting societal challenges; energy.

13 EULARINET SOM working groups Wokshops ICT, Santiago de Chile, 6th-7th June KBBE, Paris, France, 27th-28th September Renewable Energy: Rio de Janeiro, 31st August - 1st September 2011 (Wind Energy) Mexico, 21st-23rd September 2011 (Bioenergy and Solar Energy) Biodiversity and Climatic Change, Colombia, 27th-28th September 2011

14 EULARINET Wokshops: Objectives Identify possible cooperation activities or pilot projects to be developed in certain predefined subareas among EU and Latin American partners Identify possible funding schemes for these new activities Present and discuss European and Latin American public policies concerning the thematic field of the event Provide inputs for the SOM working groups

15 EULARINET Wokshops: General Approach Bringing together, Stakeholders, Industry representatives, Researchers and policy makers from EU and LAC, Representatives from the European Commission and EULARINET consortium members Providing background documentation for them to discuss What are the possibilities for policy coordination (policy components, sharing of experiences and best practices), What could be the appropriate instruments for coordinating and financing joint research, technology development and innovation activities What would be appropriate criteria for priority setting (identifying the sectors and subsectors to be covered, agreeing on the criteria to select specific R&D areas and selecting those on which specific initiatives will be developed Develop a policy document to be channelled for political consideration through the SOM mechanisms

16 SOME IDEAS FROM THE JIRI ROAD MAP 1/4 The main objective in this area is to develop the EU-LAC Knowledge Area through: i.improving cooperation in research and innovation; ii.strengthening scientific and technological capacities, and infrastructures; iii.enabling sustainable research, innovation and knowledge sharing taking into account the contribution of ancestral and traditional knowledge; iv.boosting the use of new technologies and technology transfer underpinning sustainable socio-economic development; and v.fostering cooperation between both regions as regards the digital economy and the reduction of the digital divide for improving competitiveness while making social inclusion a cross-cutting issue. The Road Map is organised on the basis of the structure of the Summit Action Plan section concerning "science, research, innovation and technology"

17 SOME IDEAS FROM THE JIRI ROAD MAP 2/4 Action Plan Item c) Commence the development and implementation of the new mechanism, the "EC-LAC Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation" combining instruments at national, regional and bi-regional level as appropriate in a complementary and synergistic manner. Further refinement, for consideration by the SOM, of implementation steps for the "EU-LAC Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation", including among other aspects: (i) priority areas for cooperation; (ii) activities and instruments; (iii) funding options (through 2012).

18 SOME IDEAS FROM THE JIRI ROAD MAP 3/4 Develop further project and programme twinning in priority areas of cooperation through Action Plan Item d) Establish or strengthen thematic networks on agreed issues of mutual interest, which should facilitate exchanges between EU-LAC universities and research centres and networks and private and public sector institutions.

19 SOME IDEAS FROM THE JIRI ROAD MAP 4/4 Promote the formation of (joint) learning and research centres of excellence between EU-LAC partners Action Plan Item g) Develop an interface between research and innovation through a knowledge and innovation centres' network to facilitate social appropriation of knowledge and technology in particular keeping in mind the micro and SMEs Establish a Knowledge and Innovation Centre in order to network relevant existing actors and projects through strengthening the interface between research and innovation Promote the establishment and/or strengthening of science and technology parks in Latin America
