  8. 8. Main Results and Activities• Mobility program: – About 160 exchanges (both researchers and students) in the region (2005-20112) in average 20 per year – Duration of visits: one week (for students up tp one month)• Network meetings: 15 meetings in 7 years, about 750 participants• Publications-Monographs, Network Conference Proceedings: about 10 issues• Research: Numerous joint papers with acknowledgements to UNESCO and ICTP for support, partially or even fully based on collaboration during exchanges• SEENET-MTP web portal became one of the most popular source of information concerning MTP in our region:• Scientific education and promotion of science in particular physics• Example of activities: – 30 lectures and 3 books – Meetings and Competitions of High School students and undergraduate students: ``Science and Society`` in Craiova and Rurnu Severein (Romania) in 2008, 2009 and 2011 – Special class for high school students with special interests in sciences, Nis, Serbia, www.pmf.ni.ac.rs/f_odeljenje
  9. 9. SEENET MTP 2003 – 2012 Summary of 10 years of activityAround 1000 persons (researchers, students, teachers andpupils) took part in the network’s events and programs.Mobility in the region: more than 150 short and mean-termvisits, exchanges, fellowships, in the region.Scientific results: around 100 scientific papers published withan acknowledgement to the network’s projects and programs.High level scientific events: more than 10 various types ofjoint scientific meetings.Publication: several books, monographs and similarpublications have been published.Projects &financial support: 8 projects with UNESCO, 4Projects with ICTP, 1 Project with Bavarian Ministry forresearch.International cooperation/ recognition: European PhysicalSociety, Balcan Physics Union.

  18. 18. Annual Budget of the Centres
  19. 19. Budget on type of research institutions• 10% of the institutes do not devote any funds to research activities.• Most of the institutes (47%) devote up to 25% of their funds to research• 20% of the institutes devote between 76% and 100% to research activities.
  20. 20. Structure of the research fundsThe research is strongly dependent on the national public funds
  21. 21. Human resources in Research
  22. 22. Research Infrastructure • 55.0% of respondents have one major facility in their centre. • 15.0% have between 2-5 major facilities. • 22.5% do not have any major facility in their centre.Equal number of respondents evaluated as “major facilities” accessible ones (withvalue less than 100.000 Euro) and with value bigger than 1.100.000 Euro.
  23. 23. Scientific outputs of Physics and Mathematics for SEE Region• The scientific output from Mathematics and Physics from the SEE region (Albania, Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Turkey) is comparable with those of others research groups from the world. Mathematics and Physics represent the main field of scientific production for the SEE region
  24. 24. Strengths and Weaknesses in Mathematics and Physics Scientific Research in SEE Strengths Weaknesses• There is a critical mass of • There is an openness for researchers. international cooperation, but the East-West axis is the frequent one.• A very good scientific output of • The human resources aren’t valued the activity. at the highest level hips of cooperation.• There are specific research • The research finance isn’t the one infrastructures compatible with to aspect in the advanced scientific the specific needs. research.
  25. 25. Directions for strategic action• Creation of regional cooperation networks capable to enable the communication and interrelationships between research centres.• At a ministry level it is recommended to launch and finance special programs for interregional cooperation.• Encouraging the change in policy of science in order to be able to hire researchers from other countries.• Establishing as a priority the finance of the reintegration programs designated to young researchers.• Adapting the investment policy in research from region to the European strategy of research, in the attempt to gain 3% from GDP.• Cataloguing the whole available infrastructure and sharing both information and infrastructure.
