Joint programming: Working together to tackle common challenges more effectively - Dr. Pamela Byrne, Department of Agriculture, Forestries and Food

  1. 1. Joint Programming “Working together to tackle common challenges more effectively “ Dr. Pamela Byrne, National Contact Point for Theme 2: Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology FP7-Environment - National Information Day Wednesday 6th October 2010 Hilton Dublin Airport Hotel, Ireland
  2. 2. • What are JPI’s? • Why do we need JPI’s? • How will JPI’s operate? • Case study – “A healthy diet for a healthy life” Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  3. 3. “Member States working together to tackle major societal challenges more effectively “ Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  4. 4. What are JPI’s? • Brand new concept to address lack of collaboration & coordination between national public R&D programmes • JPI’s involve – MS engaging on a voluntary & on a variable geometry basis – the development & implementation of a common strategic research agenda based on a common vision on how to address major societal challenges Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  5. 5. What are JPI’s? • Requires combining resources – selecting or developing the most appropriate instrument(s); – collectively monitoring & reviewing progress • Recognise the importance of existing activities & initiatives • Recognise the need for a new & more strategic approach • Calls for MS to increase their collaboration • Recognise the competence of MS over the choice of R&D policies & the related allocation of resources Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  6. 6. Identifying themes for Joint Programming • Creation of a High Level Group on Joint Programming (GPC) to identify Joint Programming themes • Ireland represented by Dept. of Enterprise, Trade & innovation • Criteria used to identify themes: – Effective commitment of MS – Theme is focused and addresses a European / Global challenge – Clear & realistic objectives can be set – Clear added value to existing situation in research funding – Relevant stakeholders have been involved – Potential of generating benefits for European citizens / competitiveness and of increasing efficiency and impact of public R&D financing by involving the key public initiatives in the area Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  7. 7. The Process … • Consultation of stakeholders by MS Thru’out • Proposals to GPC 2009 • Identification of Joint Programming Themes by GPC End 09 • Adoption by Council End 09 – • C’ion proposal for Council recommendation on basis of themes identified May 10 • Council adopts recommendation & launches selected initiatives 2010 •Interim management structures, development of Vision, pooling of resources … by end etc.. by interested MS & facilitation by C’ion 2010 •Implementation begins Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  8. 8. In summary JPI’s are designed to →To tackle common European “grand challenges” →To pool national research efforts & build on the experience of existing national programmes Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  9. 9. Why do we need JPI’s? If we agree that:- • Science & technology must contribute to solving major societal challenges • Benefits of R&D are not currently optimised due to compartmentalisation of public funding in the EU • National research programmes are important … but they are NOT equipped to tackle major European societal problems alone Then JPI’s can be a process to deal with these issues Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  10. 10. Why do we need JPI’s? • Total sum of funding for STI in EU27 + EC which equates to approx. €90 billion (Source: ERA Key figures 2007, EC) • 85% of public funding for STI in the EU is uncoordinated • Duplication & fragmentation of research effort “Europe's research landscape is deeply compartmentalised” Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  11. 11. How will JPI’s operate? • All will differ slightly but all have appropriate Governance Structure • Common Framework currently being developed • C’ion provide funding under Co-ordination & Support Action to support management of JPI Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
  12. 12. How will JPI’s operate? Implementation Strategic Common Vision of Strategic Research Agenda Research Agenda Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010

Case Study “A Healthy Diet Healthier diets & reduced incidence of diet-related diseases for a Policy-making; effective communication Healthy Life” & knowledge and technology transfer Full operation of European Research Area: full cooperation & collaboration in research Determinants of Diet-related chronic Diet and food diet and physical diseases production activity Safe & Sustainable Foods Identification of joint activities, improving research infrastructure, harmonising research standards, curricula, providing access to infrastructure, databases, cohort studies, … National food & nutrition programmes; EU & regional funding Copyright ©Pamela Byrne 2010
