1 1 Community Support to Forest related Research European forest research – outlook for the future Brussels, 12 November 2004 Christian PATERMANN Director Dir. E Biotechnology, Agriculture and Food Research European Commission Research Directorate-General

2 2 Community Research Programmes Objectives (Article 163 Amsterdam Treaty) –to strengthen the European research potential –to promote the competitiveness of European industry –to support Community policies RDT Generic Activities Support for Infrastructure Key Actions Societys Needs Problem-solving Approach Integrating European Research Priority Thematic Areas Anticipating S/T Needs Structuring the ERA Strengthening the Foundations of ERA Towards a European Research Policy From FP 5 ( ) to ERA and FP 6 ( )

3 3 Forest related Community support in FP5

4 4 FP5 - Key Action 5.3 Forestry and Forest Wood Chain 63 Projects funded 500 Participants Total Costs: 128 Mio Euro EU Contribution: 80 Mio Euro

5 5 FP5 (KEY ACTION 5) IN THE FP6 Fifth Framework Programme Fifth Framework Programme (KEY ACTION M) Sustainable Agriculture and Fisheries Non-Food Uses Forestry - Wood Chain Support to Policies Rural Development Sixth framework Programme Sixth framework Programme –Priority 5 Food safety and quality –Priority 6 Sustainable devel. Sustainable Land management - Bioenergy –Priority 3 Nanotechnology. Materials from renewables (non-food / forest products) –Priority 8 Support to policies Support to CAP CFP Rural Development Multifunctionality

6 6 The forestry/wood sector participation in FP6 (October 2004) Thematic Priorities: so far only in priority 3 Nanotechnologies (2 IPs: Sustainpack; Ecotarget; plus 2 IPs (SME): Ecobinders; Holiwood) Research for Policy Support (1 STREP: GoFor) Specific SME activities (4 CRAFT projects: Innovation for beech; Mepos; Woodstone; Colormatch, but no Collective Research project) International co-operation activities (5 projects selected for funding) ERA-Net scheme (1 project: Woodwisdom-net)

7 7 Science and Technology Future EU policy to support research Commissions communication on Future Research Policy (16 June 2004) to launch political debate ahead of Proposals for FP7 (early 2005) Six major objectives to increase the impact of EUs actions and 2 new fields of research: space and security Documents on future European research policy:

8 8 FP7 Developments towards FP7 ( ) Financial perspectives : proposed doubling of EU research budget Role of EU research support: complement, reinforce and strengthen the impact of national actions (collaboration, diffusion of knowledge, creation of critical masses of financial and human resources etc.) FP6 prepared a ground for stepping in this direction

9 9 Science & Technology the key to Europes future SIX KEY AXES: Excellence through collaboration Technology initiatives Basic research through competition Human resources Research infrastructures Coordination of national programmes new
