Project description

International Cooperation

Euro-India SPIRIT aims to engage the EU and Indian ICT stakeholders at a level where policy formulation pertaining to research can be aligned and supported to identify the priorities of key research stakeholders and constituencies. The expected outcome is a mutually-beneficial research and innovation agenda that can be taken up through specific bilateral initiatives. The project will carry out specific fact-finding, consultative and collaboration actions to reinforce the international dimension of the EU ICT research programme and leverage the combined impact of Cooperation, Capacities and People programmes with Indian involvement. Actions will lead to the identification of long term policy perspectives aligned with the EU ICT research policy, programme, priorities and recommendations for future co-operation initiatives including counterpart funding to leverage research capability and capacity available in India and for identifying new research and market opportunities for Europe. Euro-India SPIRIT emerges as a logical sequence to previous EU-India initiatives and aims to ensure a sustained action and to serve a dedicated forum for European and Indian ICT communities and research stakeholders for the purpose of presenting, discussing & tackling the major issues in the development of a sustainable, long term EU and Indian Policy dialogue covering the research dimension. The Euro-India SPIRIT project comes at a crucial time in the evolution of international co-operation strategy of the EU in the ICT research domain vis-à-vis Inco priority countries in general and India in particular and. The project is conceived by a highly qualified and strongly committed consortium of partners with complementary skills and experiences in international cooperation, policy and actions.
