Title: Research partnership for Development: Migration of Science?


1
Research partnership for DevelopmentMigration
of Science?
  • Birgit Habermann, KEF Coordinator

2
Science and the poor
  • It is not surprising that the rich get richer
    in a continueing cycle of growth while the
    poorest are often left behind. A special effort
    should be made by the powerhouses of world
    science to address the unmet challenges of the
    poor.
  • Jeffrey D. Sachs, The End of Poverty

ROLE OF RESEARCH
3
The global scientific divide
  • DCs represent 78 of population but only 28 of
    researchers worldwide

ROLE OF RESEARCH

Commission for Development Studies
  • Founded in 1981 as a follow up to UNCSTD (United
    Nations Conference on Science and Technology for
    Development)
  • Head of Commission Prof. Gerhard Glatzel
  • Coordinator Birgit Habermann

Commission for Development Studies
  • Multi- and interdisciplinary platform
  • Hosted by Austrian Academy of Sciences, funded by
    BMWF
  • 30 members

Donors/ Ministries (5)

Our aims
  • to unite scientific questions with
    development-political objectives
  • to embed the development-political approach into
    science and research

7
What do we do ?
  • KEF provides funding for research partnerships
  • 63 KEF projects in 29 countries, 2 multinational
    projects
  • 13 projects in implementation phase
  • Annually 6-7 new projects
  • Budget ca 25 000 Euro/18 months

KEF research partnerships

KEF research partnerships Prerequisites for
funding
  • Eligibility Austrian scientists and their
    scientific partners in developing countries
  • Significant proportion of funds remains with
    partner country
  • Institutional integration (capacity building)

11
What do we do ?
12
KEF Publication
  • Joint Research, Joint Learning Research
    partnerships in development cooperation.

13
Is there a need for scientific partnership?
  • Global research questions, e.g. climate change,
    international treaties, pandemic diseases,
    security,
  • Global competition takes place in research as
    well what role for Austria in the future?
  • Changes in Aid Architectcure (General budget
    support), modalities of cooperation and
    accessibility of knowledge, global awareness,

Impeding factors for partnership cooperation
  • Structural issues, limited career options for
    scientists
  • Lack of networking among Austrian institutions in
    development research
  • Capacities in Austria often inadequately trained
    to meet the high and diverse requirements lack
    of training and capacity development,

15
Impeding factors for partnership cooperation
  • Lack of policy coherence
  • Demand for experts / expertise in development
    cooperation a lot remains still unclear !
  • No tradition in Development Studies, Development
    Policy Research, - individual initiatives
    struggle with structure and limitations

Impeding factors for partnership cooperation
  • Resources
  • Lack of an adequately equipped funding programme
    (ca 140 000 Euro/year KEF funding, Austriaca 400
    000 Euro/year )
  • Sweden 54 Mill. Euro (2005)

Summary
  • Is it the powerhouses of world science we need?
  • What kind of partnership can we offer, are we
    willing to offer?
  • Power participation what does it mean?
  • Are we ready to stop dividing, categorising,
    classifying the world and accept a new global
    concept understanding of science?
