Lisa O'Reilly - In your experience what are the benefits of participating in EU research projects?
I think the main benefits of the programmes are the network that's gained through collaborating with EU partners and my organization - Invest NI - we have participated in a lot of ERA-NET funding programmes with European partners to learn about implementation of regional funding, for research and development and we are also just starting a new project, Regions of Knowledge, and we're really keen that the Regions of Knowledge will help build the capacity in the region, so we're working together, ourselves as a public agency with a university and an sme trade association in order to really build a capacity of research driven clusters in the region, while working with European partners.
