2 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20032 The European Research Area è “Lisbon 2000”: become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010… è “Towards a European Research Area” è “Barcelona 2002” l..increase R&TD investment towards 3% of GDP by 2010

3 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20033 Why a European Research Area? è Today: European Research = 15+1 (15 MS+EU) è EU enlargement Thus è Need to improve spending of scarce resources è Need to organise research better è Need to move to a real European research policy

4 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20034 EU Candidate countries: Bulgaria Cyprus Estonia Hungary Latvia Lithuania Malta Poland Czech Republic Romania Slovenia Slovakia Associated Countries: Island Israel Norway Switzerland Turkey Participation in EU Research

5 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20035 Making ERA a reality è Elaborating a research policy beyond the 15+1 approach l Optimise resources and facilities at european level l More co-ordinated use of public resources and instruments l More dynamic private investment l Bring public and private research closer l Improve exploitation of research results and capacities l A dynamic European landscape open and attractive to researchers and investment è Increase RTD spending to 3% of GDP by 2010

6 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20036 European Research Intensity Japan: 2.85 USA: 2.75 EU-15: 1.89 R&D expenditure as a % of GDP

7 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 20037 European Research Human Resources Number of researchers in firms per 1000 labour force

12 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 200312 FP6 organised around 3 blocs of actions è Focusing and Integrating Community Research13345 l 7 thematic priorities (11285) l other activities including specific measures for SMEs (1300) l non nuclear part of JRC activities (760) è Structuring the ERA 2605 è Strengthening the foundations of the ERA 320

13 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 200313 7+1 thematic priorities in FP6 è Life science, genomics and biotechnology for health 2255 è Information society technologies3625 è Nanotechnologies and nanosciences, knowledge based multifunctional materials … 1300 è Aeronautics and space 1075 è Food quality and safety 685 è Sustainable development…2120 è Citizens and governance … 225 è (Specific activities…)(1300)

14 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 200314 FP6: Eight Thematic Priorities

15 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 200315 SMEs in FP6 è 430 Mio EURO allocated for Co-operative research (ex-CRAFT) and Collective research è Political will to allocate 15% of thematic priorities budget to SMEs è Due to limited specific budget (430 M€), SMEs are encouraged to participate in non SME specific projects (IP, NoE, STREP….)

16 Bordeaux - FP6 General -J.Prieur -Jan. 200316 Specific Measures for SMEs in FP6 è Co-operative research activities (ex-CRAFT) research carried out by research centres for SMEs in different EU countries on themes of common interest, or by high-tech SMEs in collaboration with research centres or universities è Collective research activities large-scale medium-term research carried out by research centres for industrial associations or groupings in entire sectors of industry dominated by SMEs at European level
