         Cooperation at an International Level

        Motto: Meeting of two worlds – wishes, plans and reality

 

The Report Future Competence Centres Programmes clearly states that there is a perceived need to provide more incentives and measures to allow Competence Centres to cooperate at a regional and international level, in order to further increase the quality of research performed within centres.  Internationalisation is becoming an even more important issue for Competence Centres managers. How does it function in practice?

 

Meeting of two worlds, of two cultures, has always been a challenge. Research Campus – Public Private Partnership for Innovations is a specific instrument to strengthen research cooperation between academia and industry and to establish long-term strategic cooperation. The staff members have different ‚cultural „and „linguistic „background. How do they manage to find a common language? The Cluster instrument reflects synergies where European industry’s research and collaboration interests, innovation capacity - and national funding opportunities meet. What is the perception of its members?

 

EUREKA Clusters are strategically significant initiatives that develop technologies of key importance for European competitiveness.  To which extend the EUREKA clusters fulfil their role – to increase the European competitiveness? What are the bottlenecks of European cooperation? What is the difficult aspect of implementing the programme ITEA?  

In the period 2007 – 2013 many scientific centres and large infrastructures were established in order to integrate research and development. Today, their functioning, human resources, sustainability, international co-operation is largely discussed, as well as their co-operation with Competence Centres. Use of large infrastructures is one of the important options for future Competence Centres Programmes. How does the internationalisation of Competence Centres work in real life?
