Scientific Knowledge for Environmental Protection - Network of Funding Agencies

Objective

Developing effective policies and regulation to protect the environment is a fundamental responsibility of all European states. Historically, countries have developed the science necessary to develop and implement environmental protection policy in isolation. This allows great potential for duplication. The SKEP ERA-NET will bring together the key funders of the national research programmes to generate this knowledge. By taking a forward-looking, strategic overview of the research needs of policy and regulation for environmental protection, SKEP will enable effective deployment of research resources across Europe to develop innovative research and meet the EU?s environmental challenges. The creation of a lasting structure for research co-ordination and co-operation between the 14 SKEP partners will provide for effective alignment of national programmes. Sharing good practice and innovation for research management and dissemination will enhance the value of research in meeting the needs of policy makers and those who implement regulation. This will be achieved through an evolving programme of work over 4 years to enable the systematic exchange of information on research programmes and priorities; the development and sharing of good practice in the management and dissemination of research; the identification and analysis of common strategic issues; and the consequent development and implementation of joint innovative research activities; SKEP success measures: *Joint calls for research to support innovation in 2 areas crucial to environmental protection policy-making * Delivery of common understanding of the current and future research priorities necessary to deliver effective environmental protection °More efficient use of research funding in this area - better value for money and greater potential for innovation *Improved management and dissemination of research *Improved environmental protection capability in Europe
