BILAT-RUS-Advanced

Advancement of the bilateral Partnership in scientific Research and Innovation with the Russian Federation

BILAT-RUS-Advanced’s overall strategy puts the three main issues of the FP7 Capacities work programme into practice. It provides input for the EU-Commission on the state of EU-Russian STI (Science, Technology, and Innovation) cooperation, and contributes to coordinate research policies and programmes of European Member States, Associated Countries, and the EU-Commission. Furthermore, the project enhances information collection and dissemination as regards STI between Russia and the EU, and raises awareness of researchers in Russia and the EU for cooperation potentials. It monitors the existing STI cooperation praxis, and facilitates the implementation of a sustainable cooperation support system. An analysis of the Russian innovation system is carried out, which provides support for enhanced implementation of R&D (Research & Development) results. The project also delivers a feasibility study for a common representation of European scientific institutions in Russia.

One of the major success factors is the close, continuous dialogue, and the coordination of activities with Russian and European authorities.  In particular, it addresses the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation (MON), which is responsible Ministries/Agencies in EU Member States and the EU Commission.

The individual activities and tasks that are proposed in the work packages of the project cover a wide array of activities. They include general information and awareness raising activities and the maintenance of the established web-portal with data and knowledge bases on STI issues, as well as a inventory and analysis of existing cooperation instruments, the preparation of three yearly analytical reports on the state of EU-Russian STI cooperation, the publication of guidelines for better implementation of R&D results, a feasibility study for a common representation of European scientific organisations in Russia, and a mobility grant scheme. Activities also include the establishment of an external quality control body and an Advisory Board.
