The two subsequent „Seminars on Research and Innovation Policy“ are organised under the INCO-NET EaP-project (‘STI International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries’) and under the INCO-NET-CA-project (‘STI International Cooperation Network for Central Asian Countries’). Both projects are funded by the European Commission under the 7th European Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration (FP7). The Seminars take place between 9th and 13th February 2015 (for the participants from Central Asia) and between 16th and 20th February 2015 (for the participants from Eastern Europe). Seminar language is English.

The seminar addresses senior experts dealing with science, research and technology policy and informs and discusses pertinent topics of research and innovation policy, such as STI policy paradigms, STI policy mixes, innovation support instruments and programmes, measurement of R&D and innovation. Trainers should be high-level experts. The draft schedule of both seminars is attached. The training sessions for each topic should last around 2.5 to 3 hours. They should consist of sound theoretical input, practical application examples and interactive elements.
