IncoNet EaP

STI International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries

This project aims to support the advancement of the bi-regional STI (Science, Technology, Innovation) policy dialogue between the EU MS/AC (Member States/Associated Countries) and the Eastern Partnership countries.  It also focuses explicitly on the societal challenges that have been identified to be of mutual interest for the two regions, namely climate change, energy and health. In particular the project identifies actions and stakeholders and implements innovative pilot activities to strengthen the coordination and impact of the individual actions.  In terms of policy dialogue, the project provides analytical evidence and monitoring to feed the dialogue and to support joint agenda setting. Policy mix reviews are implemented along with capacity building activities with emphasis on the promotion of Innovation. More specifically, links with the EU technology platforms are established allowing mutual learning and exchange of best practices for enhanced public-private partnerships between the two regions. In addition, support to FP (Framework Programme) contacts is provided to strengthen their role and to adapt their functioning to the challenges of H2020.  The proposed project builds on the experience of the previous projects (IncoNet EECA and IncoNet CA/SC) targeting the region and develops synergies, with the forthcoming project targeting the Central Asian countries.
