IncoNet EaP

STI International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries

This project aimed 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 focused 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 identified actions and stakeholders and implemented innovative pilot activities to strengthen the coordination and impact of the individual actions.  In terms of policy dialogue, the project provided analytical evidence and monitoring to feed the dialogue and to support joint agenda setting. Policy mix reviews were implemented along with capacity building activities with emphasis on the promotion of Innovation. More specifically, links with the EU technology platforms were 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 was provided to strengthen their role and to adapt their functioning to the challenges of H2020.  The project built on the experience of the previous projects (IncoNet EECA and IncoNet CA/SC) targeting the region and developing synergies, with the forthcoming project targeting the Central Asian countries.
