Room L6, 04/12/2018 (16:00-16:45)
The EU and Australia work actively to develop strategies for digital economy, artificial intelligence and grasping the potential of new and emerging technologies (blockchain, IoT, cloud computing and big data), with major announcements expected by both countries in this area in December. H2020 has seen lower levels of international cooperation than preceding framework programmes. We need to consider how we can resolve programme, instrument, policy and financial blockers in Horizon Europe to encourage greater international co-operation.
The EU and Australia have endorsed a new Framework Agreement, which commits to enhancing cooperation on science, research and innovation. Negotiations have commenced on an Australia-EU Free Trade Agreement signalling a commitment to strengthen the partnership between two like-minded economies. As such, ICT 2018 provides a window of opportunity for European, Australian and global researchers to reflect on what has worked, been effective and what needs to change to enable better and deeper co-operation. While Australia will be the lens through which the discussion takes place - many of the issues are transversal and apply to multiple nations.
This session is designed for all international co-operation partners who know and understand the challenges of making global research a reality. The objectives of the workshop are to explore the opportunities of future cooperation through the lens of "Programme", "Policy", "Priority" and "Possibilities".
