The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) is the new roadmap for aviation research, development and innovation, that will outline the main threads of technical, operational and strategic actions to achieve the ambitious goals set by Flightpath 2050 (Europe’s vision for Aviation beyond 2020). The Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research and Innovation in Europe (ACARE) is developing the SRIA through the involvement and consultation of major aeronautics and air transport stakeholders.

The European Commission has been organizing workshops with the Atlantic Member States to ensure awareness of the Atlantic Forum and EU funding processes. The objective of this is to support the Atlantic Action Plan and to assist stakeholders in coming forward with well-prepared projects.
So far four workshops have been held: Horta (Azores), Brest (France), Bilbao (Spain) and, last month, Cardiff (UK). The next workshop will be held in Cork (Ireland) on 4-5 March 2013 with 'Research and Innovation, Atlantic Ports and the Atlantic Action Plan' being the main themes.
The session on 4 March will show how research and innovation is driving the Atlantic Strategy. Furthermore, following feedback from previous workshops, there will also be a half-day parallel session on Atlantic Ports. On 5 March, there will be an opportunity to discuss the draft Atlantic Action Plan along with the key issues of funding and implementation.
The success of the Cork workshop will be dependent on a broad and wide participation coming from across all Atlantic Member States. All interested stakeholders are therefore encouraged to participate.

The last few months have seen the reconsideration of issues about nuclear safety and nuclear’s long-term contribution to the EU’s energy mix. The EESC and the European Commission are therefore organizing an open, balanced and exploratory process of dialogue and debate for all stakeholders in civil society focused on nuclear fission energy research and its role in a low carbon economy.
