Special Event: Opportunities and challenges – ERA-Nets as drivers of international cooperation

-
Hotel Böglerhof
Breakout / Working Group
english language

As of FP6 dozens of ERA-Nets started to shape the European Research Area. Just a few of them tackled international RTD cooperation with non-EU countries (e.g. with China, India or the Western Balkan Countries). Midterm of FP7 seems an appropriate time to reflect the progress made, problems faced and ways to improve the international dimension of the ERA-Net instrument. The following issues will be addressed:

-Could the anticipated value added in terms of enhanced RTD cooperation, procedural knowledge gain and policy-making be realised?
-How can sustainability of international ERA-Nets be secured?
-Are ERA-Nets within the trajectory of joint programming or complementary tools?
-Will RTD policy turn back to unilateral and bilateral at the expense of multilateral schemes?
