Foresight within ERA-NETs
ERA-NETs
ERA-NET Scheme
  • An innovation policy tool in the EU
  • Funding from FP6 (budget approx. 160 M in 2002 -
    2006)
  • Coordination and cooperation among national and
    regional research programmes
  • New innovations, efficient use of resources, risk
    spreading
  • Focus on selected sciences and/or technologies
  • Approx. 75 ERA-NETs to-date
  • Transportation, climate change, hydrogen, cancer,
    etc.
  • Diverse practices
  • From 10 to 50 partners
  • Budgets from 100 k to 100 M
  • Mode of operations ranges from
  • weak coordination of national programmes to
  • common pot of resources for a joint RTD programme

WoodWisdom-Net
Background
  • Timeline
  • Established in 2004
  • Calls for proposals in 2007 - research will start
    in 2008
  • 18 partners (ministries and national funding
    agencies)
  • Austria, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany,
    Norway, Sweden, UK
  • Joint Research Programme
  • Research projects to be funded by WW-Net partners
  • Partners allocate funds to researchers in their
    countries
  • Funding decisions are taken jointly
  • Cross-national research projects
  • Five workpackages (WPs)
  • WP2 strategic activities WP 2.4 and 2.5
    Collaborative Shaping of Research Agendas in
    WoodWisdom-Net

Collaborative Shaping of Research Agendas
Consultation process
  • Challenges
  • New instrument ? No established approaches
  • A broad range of issues to be covered
  • Forestry, wood products, paper industry, etc.
  • Research, industrial and societal perspectives
  • Different partners (funding organizations)
  • Different management cultures
  • Different national interests
  • Different focus areas
  • Systematic process to engage key stakeholders
  • Well-defined roles and responsibilities
  • Taxonomy for research issues
  • Multiple methods (internet surveys, multicriteria
    analysis, participatory workshops)
  • Over 400 participants from eight different
    countries

Task 5 Workshops for researchers and funding
organisations
  • Three one day workshops in February 2006
  • New value added products and production, Wood
    products and Forestry
  • Participant
  • One researcher and one Industrial leader from
    each participating country / workshop
  • Issues, assessments and analysis on each research
    sub-area allocated to each workshop by topic
  • Discussion of solicited issues
  • Evaluation of sub-areas with regards to i)
    suitability for WW-Net and ii) tentative
    proposition of distribution of funding
  • Synthesis of the results i) at the international
    level and ii) on each country

Task 6 Workshop for funding organisations
  • Timetable
  • March 2006
  • Participants
  • Representatives from funding organisations
  • One-day workshop
  • Results from previous tasks supported discussions
  • Funding organisations estimated i) how much and
    ii) which sub-areas they would be willing to fund
  • Three working groups of WW-Net partners created
    based on these answers ? Specification of
    Calls-for-Proposals

Collaborative shaping of research agendas
Conclusions
  • Benefits to stakeholders
  • Researchers Learning from a systematic process
  • Industry Influence through comments on
    prospective research
  • Funding organizations Improved understanding of
    research issues that are relevant to researchers
    and industrialists
  • Makes it easier to commit funds
  • Supporst the development of Calls-for-Proposals
  • Key process considerations
  • How to balance top-down and bottom-up
    prioritisation?
  • At what stage to build a taxonomy of research
    issues?
  • How to foster new networks of collaboration?
  • Extensive analyses distributed among WW-Net
    members
  • Potentially useful in other ERA-NETs, too
