  • 18. How Joint Programming could be linkedwith Cohesion policy• Joint Programming in Research and Innovation can be linked with Cohesion policy • following the eligibility rules of each of the Structural Funds and thus also be funded at the available rates• However the specific goal of Cohesion policy is to reduce economic disparities between regions• Need to reconcile the European dimension of JPI research with the regional dimension of structural funds │ 18
  • 19. What can be financed by Structuralfunds?• Research infrastructures• Researchers’ training• Demonstration projects• Innovation schemes… │ 19

  • 21. Marine research infrastructures andstructural funds (2010 Commission study)• Ad-hoc approach (regional project) vs. National strategic approach (IE / Sea change, LI / maritime valley)• Regional / national projects vs. European/global projects (Argo) • Argo floats procured regionally are part of a global array of floats, how do we link regional value and global objectives? • Argo floats have a 3-4 years lifetime, how are they sustained after that period?• Probably more opportunities to finance MRI with SF, particularly in some new member states• But obstacles as well: • Research organisations not aware of opportunities • Difficult for Research organisations to present projects in a way that meets SF requirements & rationale (socio-economic impact) • SF managers "unaware" of socio-economic value of marine research infrastructures • MRI which lack visibility can be of lesser interest to policy makers │ 21

  • 23. EMBRC and structural funds• Can EMBRC be supported with structural funds?• What part(s) of EMBRC?• How? At what stage of development?• « Brokerage event » on 29 March between EMBRC (aspiring) partners and regional funds managers │ 23
  • 24. Another model for SF use: Domestication ofbluefin tuna• Commission financed two projects (pre- competitive research): • Reprodott in FP6 • Selfdott in FP7• Then move to demonstration stage • Country X used structural funds to support building of pilot infrastructure • Partners from Country Y follow another path towards commercialisation…• This example illustrates SF as innovation instrument, taking place in a territory │ 24
  • 25. Conclusion• More than 25% of 336 b€ of structural funds dedicated to research related actions / infrastructures• Can finance research infrastructures, training, demonstration projects, innovation schemes…• Marine research infrastructures can be of regional / national dimension or European / global dimension• Some MRI are "enabling infrastructures" (ARGO, EMBRC…)• Demonstration projects with infrastructure components bring research closer to market• Challenge for JPI is to link the European dimension of its initiatives with the regional rationale of structural funds• Another challenge is the timetable for programming of SF (2012-2013) │ 25
