SIovenia in FP6 ERA-NET Projects
  • In public research funding in Europe EC (FP7) is
    participating with lt 5
  • Most of the research is funded by the national
    agencies of MS
  • Research in EU is dispersed /with gaps - and
    could be strategicly planned and co-ordinated
    better (more efficient use of funds and building
    the ERA)
  • New FP6 instruments
  • ERA-NET SSA projects (preparation for CA)
  • ERA-NET CA projects (EC funding co-ordination)-gt
  • ERA-NET PLUS projects (EC co-funding research)-gt
  • Art.169 (joint programming)

20
SIovenia in FP6 ERA-NET Projects
(supporting cooperation coordination of
national or regional research funding programmes)
  • 71 ERA-NET CA projects were selected by the EC on
    differnt topics
  • SIovenia is participating in 20 ERA-NET projects
  • MHEST is in 16 ERA-NET projects
  • MHEST is active in ERA-NET joint calls

ERASysBio (1.2.2006 - 31.1.2009)
  • Systems biology is an emerging field with
    different possible approaches in different
    contexts. It is interdisciplinary by nature and
    in the common aim of achieving the quantitative
    understanding of dynamic biological processes
    through the use of mathematical and statistical
    analyses to integrate biological data in order to
    develop predictive models of biological behaviour
  • Topics
  • Computational biology (in silico modelling of
    complex biological processes, theoretical
    biology)
  • Systems engineering, systems theory, simulation
    engineering, bioprocess engineering
  • Informatics bioinformatics medical
    informatics, modelling tools, systems design,
    modelling networks, neural networks
  • Mathematics algorithms, computational models

24
ERASysBio
  • Funds
  • 2,95 M EUR for coordination activities (85.000)
  • Participating
  • Germany (veronika.simons_at_fz-juelich.de), Austria,
    Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Netherlands,
    Norway, Slovenia,United Kingdom, Trento province,
    Russian Federation (Russian Foundation for basic
    research, dr. Vladimir Khromov, Prof. Dr.
    Alexander Tonevitsky, Sergey Siutsyn FP7
    Health), Spain, Luxembourg, Switzerland
  • Aims
  • Carry out fundamental and strategic collaboration
    in the funding of systems approaches to
    biological research

25
ERASysBio
  • Achievements
  • Overview of national research landscape ongoing
    projects and programmes
  • Meetings of representatives of SB centres
  • 1st in London February 2007,
  • 2nd planned May 2008
  • Strategy conference March 2007, Oxford nearly 90
    participants
  • Strategy paper Systems biology in the ERA (Nov.
    2007)
  • Preparation of a joint call for transnational
    research projects
  • Announcement planned in September 2008
  • More information

26
MHEST experiences in ERA-NET joint calls
  • 1st ERA-NET calls were considered as tentative
  • Additional funds for research from the budget
    (MHEST 2005 0 , 2009 3 M )
  • Free participation (partner and other countries
    regarding the national strategic interest)
  • Coordinated calls allow impelmentation of
    national priorities (formal, topics)
  • Common pot (no fair return guaranteed)
    /distributed pot (fair return funding just
    national research)
  • Funding not just for tavel (bilateral
    cooperation), but also work, equipment
  • Bilateral or multilateral research projects
    possible between different countries in 1 single
    call
  • ERA-NET EU FP calls (more direct implementation
    of national priorities, assisstance to
    researchers)
