PSF MLE on National strategies and roadmaps for international cooperation in R&I

The Horizon 2020 Policy Support Facility launched a new mutual learning exercise with ZSI participation

The purpose of the proposed MLE is to facilitate the exchange of information, experiences and lessons learned, as well as to identify good practices, in relation to the various approaches at national level towards international cooperation in R&I and to the design of national roadmaps/frameworks (i.e. objectives, process, timeframe, indicators, existence of international benchmarking processes, etc.).

The following preliminary topics have been foreseen for this MLE:

  1. The design and development of national strategies for R&I international cooperation (indicatively: criteria used for choosing objectives and for selecting thematic priorities and target countries or regions, governance aspects, influence of other factors such as science diplomacy and coherence with EU actions/ policies).
  2. How to design the most relevant toolbox (combining tools such as mobility schemes, joint programming, joint calls for proposals, establishment of joint labs, research infrastructures, etc.) to be used in implementing national strategies for R&I international cooperation.
  3. How framework conditions for R&I international cooperation (such as reciprocity, intellectual property rights, openness of national research programmes to entities from other countries, open science, ethics, etc.) are catered for within national strategies for R&I international cooperation.

14 countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Moldova, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and Turkey) have confirmed their interest to actively participate in the MLE.

The chair of this MLE is Mrs Gunnel Gustafsson. She will be assisted by

  • Rapporteur: Klaus Schuch (ZSI)
  • Expert on topic 2: Patries Boekholt
  • Expert on topic 3: Totti Konnola
