  6. National Research and Development Programme for the Period 2006-2010Priorities • Information and CommunicationTechnologies • New Materials and Nanotechnologies • Complex Systems and Innovative Technologies • Technologies for Sustainable Development • Health and Life Sciences Related to the technologicaldevelopment Related to the social and cultural development • Supportto national identity, modern Slovenian history, natural and cultural heritage • Development ofefficient state and modern democratic society • Management of social processes and risks caused by new technologies, globalization and changing as in the demografic structure

  7. Characteristics of the Slovenian R&D System • Small R&D system • Strong human resources and relatively high overall investments in R&D • Relatively high quality of public research with a well established international co-operation • High scientific productivity of research • Relatively low brain-drain- up to now • Modest cooperation between the research, education and business spheres, as well as within those spheres

  8. Research budget of the SRAby main fields, 2007Research budget: 146 M€ Source: SRA

  9. Higher Education and Research Institutions • 4 Universities • (Ljubljana, Maribor, Koper, Nova Gorica) • 23 Independant HE institutions • 15 Government Research Institutes • 90 Private non-for Profit Research Institutes • > 300 Research Units in the Business Sector

  10. R&D International bilateral co-operation • EU member countries • Neighbouring countries • West Balkancountries • Non-European S&T leading countries • Regionally important countries

  11. 2007 R&D International Bilateral Co-operation With 81 countries Cooperation based on 93 bilateral documents: - 44S&T agreements, memoranda, etc. - 41 agreements on culture, education & science - 3 agreements on economic and S&T Cooperation - 5 agreements based on succession and - 14 other legal bases Albania, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costarica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Cyprus, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Latvia, Lebanon,Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta,Mexico, Moldova, Morocco, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovak Republic, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, taiwan,Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, USA, Uruguay, Yemen, 20 bilateral S&T agreements in procedure: Algeria, Angola, Belgium/Flanders, Belgium/Valonia, Chile, India, Ireland, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, Nepal, Netherlands, Peru, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tunisia, Yemen

  12. Number of Bilateral Research Projects1994 – 2007

  13. R&D International bilateralcooperationNumber of projects by partner countries,2003 - 2007

  14. 2007 R&D International Bilateral Co-operation • 711research projects in 2007 with 28 countries in life, technical, medical, biotechnical, social sciences, humanities & interdisciplinary research: Albania (6),Argentina (8), Austria (29), Bosnia and Herzegovina (20), PR China (54), Croatia (85), Czech (53), Cyprus (6), Denmark (14), France (48), Greece (26), Hungary (31), India (11), Israel (5), Italy (33), Japan (21), Macedonia (37), Norway (19), Poland (11), Portugal (14), Romania (15), Russian Federation (15), Serbia/Montenegro (39), Slovakia (13), Turkey (14), Ukraine (13), United Kingdom (19), USA (52)

  15. Bilateral Co-operation:No. of projects • Projects topics (2008): • Russian federation: • (nano-) materials, mathematics, SusDev, • Biochemistry, Space, IST, Cultural heritage • Ukraine:(nano-)materials, mathematics, SusDev, IST

  16. SI Participation in FP6 Contracts(616 SI participations:Higher education, Research organisations, SME, Industry) Source: EC

  18. Former Soviet Union countries: participants in FP6

  19. SIovenia in FP6 ERA-NET Projects • In public research funding in Europe EC (FP7) is participating with < 5% • Most of the research is funded by the national agencies of MS • Research in EU is dispersed /with gaps - and could be strategicly planned and co-ordinated better (more efficient use of funds and building the ERA): New FP6 instruments: ERA-NET SSA projects (preparation for CA) ERA-NET CA projects (EC funding co-ordination)-> ERA-NET PLUS projects (EC co-funding research)-> Art.169 (joint programming)

  20. SIovenia in FP6 ERA-NET Projects 71 ERA-NET CA projects were selected by the EC on differnt topics SIovenia is participating in 20 ERA-NET projects MHEST is in 16 ERA-NET projects MHEST is active in ERA-NET jointcalls (supporting cooperation & coordination of national or regional research funding programmes)

  23. ERASysBio(1.2.2006 - 31.1.2009) Systems biology is an emerging field with different possible approaches in different contexts. It is interdisciplinary by nature and in the common aim of achieving the quantitative understanding of dynamic biological processes through the use of mathematical and statistical analyses to integrate biological data in order to develop predictive models of biological behaviour Topics: • Computational biology (in silico modelling of complex biological processes, theoretical biology) • Systems engineering, systems theory, simulation engineering, bioprocess engineering • Informatics: bioinformatics & medical informatics, modelling tools, systems design, modelling networks, neural networks • Mathematics: algorithms, computational models

  24. ERASysBio Funds: • 2,95 M EUR: for coordination activities (85.000) Participating: • Germany (veronika.simons@fz-juelich.de), Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia,United Kingdom, Trento province, Russian Federation (Russian Foundation for basic research, dr. Vladimir Khromov, Prof. Dr. Alexander Tonevitsky,Sergey Siutsyn: FP7 Health), Spain, Luxembourg, Switzerland Aims: • Carry out fundamental and strategic collaboration in the funding of systems approaches to biological research

  25. ERASysBio Achievements: • Overview of national research landscapeongoing projects and programmes • Meetings of representatives of SB centres: 1st in London: February 2007, 2nd planned: May 2008 • Strategy conference: March 2007, Oxford nearly 90 participants • Strategy paper: Systems biology in the ERA(Nov. 2007) • Preparation of a joint call for transnational research projects: Announcement planned in September 2008 More information: • http://www.erasysbio.net

  26. MHEST experiencesin ERA-NET jointcalls • 1st ERA-NET calls were considered as tentative • Additional funds for research from the budget (MHEST: 2005: 0 €, 2009: 3 M €) • Free participation (partner and other countries – regarding the national strategic interest) • Coordinated calls allow impelmentation of national priorities (formal, topics…) • Common pot (no fair return guaranteed) /distributed pot (fair return – funding just national research) • Funding: not just for tavel (bilateral cooperation), but also work, equipment… • Bilateral or multilateral research projects possible between different countries in 1 single call • ERA-NET : EU FP calls (more direct implementation of national priorities, assisstance to researchers…)
