Promoting Africa-EU Research Infrastructure Partnerships

7-8 March 2013, Brussels

This high-level conference will present the outcomes of the PAERIP (Promoting African European Research Infrastructures Partnerships) project, funded under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme FP7. Over the past two years PAERIP undertook an extensive analysis of Africa-EU research infrastructure partnerships, including best practices which could be identified from current cooperation and the formulation of recommendations to enhance collaboration. In this context PAERIP considered cooperation activities such as how to enhance transnational access to research infrastructures for African and European researchers, and the promotion of networks integrating African and European research infrastructures.
The conference is taking place at a crucial time for the development of new cooperation instruments for Africa-EU cooperation including for collaboration in science, technology and innovation. These instruments include, for example, the new EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, the EU Development Cooperation Instrument and the European Development Fund. Within this context, one of the highlights of the conference will be the presentation of PAERIP’s recommendations on how research infrastructure partnerships could best be promoted as part of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy.

EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration (ES:GC2)

4-8 March 2013, Brussels

The European Parliament will host a five-day conference on “EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration” (ES:GC2), starting on March 4th, 2013, in Brussels. The conference will bring together science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from 100 different countries and will place EU research at the centre of the international response to global challenges. It will be convened by ISC - Intelligence in Science, under the auspices of the Irish Council Presidency, in conjunction with Mr Sean Kelly MEP and other Members of the European Parliament.

The core focus of ES:GC2 will be primarily on Horizon 2020, the EU’s funding instrument for collaborative research and innovation beyond 2014, which seeks to provide both increased funding and enhanced ease of participation compared to its predecessor, FP7. The aim of the conference is to encourage worldwide collaboration in science and to explore how Horizon 2020 can enable an effective scientific response to global challenges. This conference will also provide an environment to build new partnerships with the view to increase international participation in Horizon 2020.


Collaborating for Cures-Leveraging Global Public-Private Partnerships to Accelerate Medical Product Development

7 March 2013, Brussels

The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) and Critical Path Institute (C-Path) will hold a joint event  on the challenges and opportunities of public-private partnerships (PPPs).

This first ever public conference co-sponsored by IMI and C-Path will feature cross-sector participants discussing challenges and opportunities in the rapidly-evolving PPP space. The objective is to identify mechanisms for enhancing the productivity of PPPs, coordinating individual PPP efforts to avoid duplication, and adopting best practices on data sharing, intellectual property, and other cross-cutting issues in order to streamline medical product development world-wide.
