Please find attached the EOC note on a presentation about the “Roadmap to FP9” given by Kurt Vandenberghe, Director of Directorate A in DG RTD.
The event was organised by the IGLO – Informal Group of RTD Liaison
Offices in Brussels, on 10 January 2017. The attendance was strictly
limited to the staff of the IGLO offices, to enable a higher degree of
confidentiality. Chatham House rules applied to the meeting.
The presentation was structured around three topics:
1. Horizon 2020 Interim Evaluation - The
Interim Evaluation will have an impact not only on the preparation of
FP9 but also on the programming for the last 3 years of Horizon 2020
2. Lamy high level group report on on maximising impact of EU Research and Innovation Programmes – the
report will be presented in a big stakeholders’ conference organised by
the Commission end of June 2017 and the Commission would like to gather
as many stakeholders as possible
3. Challenges in designing FP9 - remarks on co-design and what are the possibilities for action for stakeholders – cohesion,
defence research, innovation, public outreach, a more transectoral and
transdisciplinary FP9 are the main challenges that Commission is facing
in the design of FP9; the Commission welcomes stakeholders’ input
through public consultations, work with ERAC and upcoming stakeholders
conferences in the Member States, foresight exercise.
message was to mobilise our stakeholders for the co-designing of the
FP9 as the Commission needs input in issues like prioritisation,
transdisciplinarity, defence research, etc.
I will be at your disposal for further information or clarifications.
