Platform of Knowledge Based Bio-Economy relevant ERA-NETs

Objective

PLATFORM will bring together the European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs) from FP6 and FP7 in the area of the Knowledge Based Bio-Economy (KBBE) with the aim to improve exchange and cooperation between ERA-NETs and strengthen their contribution to, and impact on, the European Research Area in the Knowledge Based Bio-Economy.

Experienced ERA-NET coordinators and managers propose to establish a network that will increase synergies and thus contribute to their effectiveness and impact. The project will not only benefit the coordinators of the ERA-NETs, but all participants, as well as other KBBE actors such as Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI) in this area, SCAR and KBBE-NET Collaborative Working Groups.

The project will establish a networking platform with a mutual learning dimension and a strategic dimension.

Customized and effective learning will be facilitated by creating an open and inclusive learning environment, through Workshops and a moderated cyber forum and by building on results of ERA-LEARN. PLATFORM will thus make available an extensive body of knowledge to help individual initiatives run their activities more effectively and to support new initiatives throughout their development. PLATFORM will further foster a more effective and harmonized environment for the ERA-NET users and provide guidance based on good practices.

PLATFORM will address issues of overarching strategic importance, such as the identity and role of ERA-NETs, the synergy between national, intergovernmental and European research programming, and modalities for collaboration. PLATFORM will deliver a Vision Paper and Roadmap for long-term cooperation and synergy among ERA-NETs, and between ERA-NETs and other research policy actors such as JPIs, SCAR, and KBBE Technology Platforms. PLATFORM will contribute to a common strategic framework for EU research and innovation policy.
