Nively at Policy Stakeholders Conference on EU-EaP STI Cooperation in Addressing Health, Budapest, Hungary, 19-20 April 2016
Nively’s CTO has been invited to join the Policy Stakeholders Conference on EU-EaP STI Cooperation in Addressing Health, Budapest, Hungary, 19-20 April 2016.
The Conference will provide the opportunity for an in-depth exchange of views among high-level policymakers, representatives of the research communities in the EU/MS AC and the EaP countries, as well as other key stakeholders active in the region on regional and international policies, research programmes and projects addressing Health. The aim of the Conference is to increase synergies among stakeholders and actions as well as to shape future cooperative initiatives addressing Health.
The IncoNet EaP project aims to support the advancement of the bi-regional STI (Science, Technology, and Innovation) policy dialogue between the EU Member States/Associated Countries and the Eastern Partnership Countries, with an explicit focus on the Societal Challenges that have been identified to be of mutual interest for the two regions, namely Climate Change, Energy and Health. In particular the project will identify actions and stakeholders and will implement innovative pilot activities to strengthen the coordination and impact of the individual actions.
In terms of policy dialogue, the project will provide analytical evidence and monitoring to feed the dialogue and to support joint agenda setting. A policy mix review will be implemented along with capacity building activities with emphasis on the promotion of Innovation. More specifically, links with the EU technology platforms will be established allowing mutual learning and exchange of best practices for enhanced public-private partnerships between the two regions. In addition, support to FP contacts will be provided to strengthen their role and to adapt their functioning to the challenges of Horizon 2020.
