Title: Knowledge Based BioEconomy Perspectives for Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research and interna


1
Knowledge Based Bio-Economy Perspectives
for Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research
and international co-operation in the EU
Framework Programmes Conference and Information
Day Kiev 9-10 February, 2006 Christian
Patermann Director of Biotechnology, Agriculture
and Food Research DG Research - European
Commission
2
International Cooperation in
FP6 - Food Quality and Safety
Focus on Ukraine - policy drive - principles
and funds (in FP6 and in FQS) - results -
remaining opportunities
3
THE POLICY DRIVE
  • EC-Russia and EC-Ukraine ST Co-operation
    Agreements
  • European neighbourhood strategy
  • EU-Ukraine Action Plan

International co-oeration in FP6 THE PARTNERS
EU FP-Associated
  • 25 Member States
  • FP6-Associated Candidate Countries
  • (Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey)
  • Other FP6-Associated States (Iceland, Israel,
    Lichtenstein, Norway, Switzerland)

The EU FP6 Programme is OPEN TO THE WORLD
International co-operation in FP6 PRINCIPLES
  • The European Research Area must be opened up to
    the rest of the world. This openness should
    enable the EU to benefit from international
    cooperation in ST paving the way for closer
    political and economic relations (with candidate
    and neighbour countries but also other third
    countries from all continents).
  • Adapted from the Communication from the
    Commission
  •  The International Dimension of the European
    Research Area  - COM(2001) 346 final

INTERNATIONAL CO-OPERATION IS AN IMPORTANT
DIMENSION OF FP6 !
7
International co-operation in FP6 PRINCIPLES
  • PARTICIPATION
  • Any legal entity from any third country and
  • international organization may take part,
  • in addition to the minimum number of
    participants required
  • exceptions Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya,
    Myanmar and North Korea
  • FUNDING
  • INCO target countries and International
    organisations established in INCO target
    countries are entitled to funding, within limits
    of available budget earmarked for international
    co-operation (285 M for all FP6 thematic
    priorities)

research Whats new!
  • Pillar 2 Food, health and well-being ensures
    continuity of FP6 Food quality and safety
    research
  • New Pillar 1 Sustainable production and
    management of biological resources and pillar 3
    Life sciences and biotech for sustainable
    non-food products and processes
  • Some topics under pillar 13 partly financed in
    FP4 and FP5 (BIOTECH, FAIR, QoL, etc.), but FP6
    efforts scattered and not of sufficient critical
    mass (some activities under materials, energy and
    environment) providing no synergies
  • Technology platforms in the area of plant
    biotechnology, animal breeding, global animal
    health, forestry, food and industrial
    biotechnology

45
Technology Platforms Policy Rationale
  • Boost research performance . European Research
    Area . 3 of GDP investment target for RD
  • Contribute to Growth Competitiveness (new start
    for the Lisbon strategy COM(2005)24 of 2/2/2005)
  • Positive impact on many other key Community
    policies
  • Help increase participation of industry in FP7
    and future FPs.

46
Technology Platforms Overall Concept
Stakeholders, led by industry, getting together
to define a Strategic Research Agenda on a number
of strategically important issues with high
societal relevance where achieving Europes
future growth, competitiveness and sustainability
objectives is dependent upon major research and
technological advances in the medium to long
term.
The
47
Technology Platforms Central Concept
  • Framework to unite stakeholders around
  • A common VISION for the technology concerned.
  • Mobilisation of a CRITICAL MASS of research and
    innovation effort.
  • Definition of a STRATEGIC RESEARCH AGENDA.

48
Technology Platform Forestry Resources
  • Stakeholders CEPI (paper industry) CEPF (forest
    owners) CEI-BOIS (wood product industry) other
    forest related groups and research organisations

    for Food, Agriculture and Biotechnology research
    and will be strongly encouraged throughout the
    entire area.
  • Specific co-operation actions
  • Specific actions will be undertaken to foster
    co-operation with priority partner regions and
    countries - particularly those involved in
    bi-regional dialogues and bilateral ST
    agreements as well as neighbourhood countries and
    emerging economies and developing countries.
  • DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
  • Research of specific interest for developing
    countries will be supported, taking into account
