New newsletter by MIRRIS project

13. Jan 2016

The newsletter features three main news coming from the international R&I sector

MIRRIS (Mobilising Institutional Reforms in Research & Innovation Systems) has recently published its latest newsletter no.10. It is accessible via the MIRRIS homepage (link provided below).

The first news provides a comparison of participation of EU 13 in H2020, with a focus at the participation of social science and humanities organisations of the above noted countries and recommendations provided by the European Commission on that issue, which specify that specific thematic priorities and exploring the concrete needs for interdisciplinary research cooperation to tackle them are of the outmost importance for the EU 13. This report was written by Klaus Schuch, scientific director of ZSI and partner in the MIRRIS project.

The second news is dedicated to “Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation” opportunities in the 2016-2017 Work Programme, aiming at engaging organisations of those countries which could commit more towards the EU research and innovation effort. The Work Programme consists of the following calls: Teaming, Twinning, ERA Chairs and the call for support to JPI Urban Europe.

The third news refers to the report that has been released in November 2015 by the independent High Level Expert Group conducting an ex post evaluation of the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for Research, as required by the European Parliament Decision and European Council decision setting up FP7. The objective of this Group was to evaluate the effectiveness of FP7 and its implementation, to analyse its main achievements and shortcoming in order to provide recommendations for Horizon 2020 and all future FPs accordingly. The above noted report is addressing the findings with a particular focus at the participation and performance of EU 13.
