STI International Cooperation Network for Central Asian Countries-IncoNet CA

Bi-regional STI policy dialogue between EU MS/AC and Central Asia

The project supports the advancement of the bi-regional STI policy dialogue between the EU MS/AC andthe Central Asian countries, with an explicit focus 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 maps 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. A policy mix peer review is 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 is provided to strengthen the role of National Contact Points in the targeted partner countries and to adapt their functioning to the challenges of H2020.The project builds on the experience of the previous projects (IncoNet EECA and IncoNet CA/SC) targeting the region and utilises synergies with the sister project targeting the Eastern Partnership countries.
