Third Annual Workshop

PLATFORM Workshop 13-14 February 2014, Leiden, The Netherlands

ERA-NETs for the future

The FP7 project PLATFORM brings together the ERA-NETs and JPIs in the area of the knowledge-based bioeconomy with the aim of enhancing exchange and cooperation and providing mutual learning to strengthen the impact of ERA-NETs in the European bioeconomy. PLATFORM Workshops offer mutual learning, sharing of good practices, networking, and reflection on the ERA-NETs in relation to their environment.

The Leiden workshop was the first ERA-NET forum event after Horizon 2020 has been launched. The workshop programme was designed to serve a broad interest. We worked towards finalizing recommendations on interactions between ERA-NETs and JPIs among each other, and with other policy actors in the European Research Area, such as industry-driven networks, research alliances, national policy makers and the EC. We also turned our eye on the activities expected from and possible under the Horizon 2020 ERA-NET COFUND actions. Furthermore, there was a dedicated session on the ERA-NETs and the EIP AGRI, for all those having an interest in developing or strengthening those lines of collaboration.

Dates:           13 -14 February 2014
Venue:          Museum Boerhaave, Lange St. Agnietenstraat 10, 2312 WC Leiden, The Netherlands
Chairs:          Kees Kwant (Netherlands Enterprise Agency RVO) and Ino Ostendorf (Ministry of Economic Affairs EZ)
