23 Republic of Slovenia Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology ERASysBio (1.2.2006 - 31.1.2009) Systems biology is an emerging field with different possible approaches in different contexts. It is interdisciplinary by nature and in the common aim of achieving the quantitative understanding of dynamic biological processes through the use of mathematical and statistical analyses to integrate biological data in order to develop predictive models of biological behaviour Topics: Computational biology (in silico modelling of complex biological processes, theoretical biology) Systems engineering, systems theory, simulation engineering, bioprocess engineering Informatics: bioinformatics & medical informatics, modelling tools, systems design, modelling networks, neural networks Mathematics: algorithms, computational models

24 Republic of Slovenia Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology ERASysBio Funds: 2,95 M EUR: for coordination activities (85.000) Participating: Germany (veronika.simons@fz-juelich.de), Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia,United Kingdom, Trento province, Russian Federation (Russian Foundation for basic research, dr. Vladimir Khromov, Prof. Dr. Alexander Tonevitsky, Sergey Siutsyn: FP7 Health), Spain, Luxembourg, Switzerland Aims: Carry out fundamental and strategic collaboration in the funding of systems approaches to biological research

25 Republic of Slovenia Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology ERASysBio Achievements: Overview of national research landscape ongoing projects and programmes Meetings of representatives of SB centres: 1st in London: February 2007, 2nd planned: May 2008 Strategy conference : March 2007, Oxford nearly 90 participants Strategy paper: Systems biology in the ERA (Nov. 2007) Preparation of a joint call for transnational research projects: Announcement planned in September 2008 More information: http://www.erasysbio.net

26 Republic of Slovenia Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology MHEST experiences in ERA-NET joint calls 1st ERA-NET calls were considered as tentative Additional funds for research from the budget (MHEST: 2005: 0, 2009: 3 M ) Free participation (partner and other countries – regarding the national strategic interest) Coordinated calls allow impelmentation of national priorities (formal, topics…) Common pot (no fair return guaranteed) /distributed pot (fair return – funding just national research) Funding: not just for tavel (bilateral cooperation), but also work, equipment… Bilateral or multilateral research projects possible between different countries in 1 single call ERA-NET : EU FP calls (more direct implementation of national priorities, assisstance to researchers…)
