ystems) aims at encouraging a better exploitation of
European research and innovation programmes and participation in the
European Research Area of the 13 target countries by setting
up a process of analysis, dialogue, mutual learning among key concerned
stakeholders, namely research, innovation and institutional actors
Europe as a whole must advance significantly in research and
innovation performances in order to make the EU the most dynamic and
competitive knowledge-based economy, as foreseen in the Europe 2020
strategy. There are countries lagging behind in the effectiveness
of exploiting EU funded programs in the field of R&D&I. The
obstacles can be sought among local conditions, resources and assets
faceting a specific system.
MIRRIS will focus on the following countries: Bulgaria, Croatia,
Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta,
Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
In order to allow these countries to better exploit the European
research and innovation programmes, MIRRIS will set up an extensive
policy learning exercise to identify barriers and to identify how
innovation systems can better address the participation
to the European research area.
The project foresees the organization of 3 rounds of policy
dialogues in each country involving relevant stakeholders from three
levels: decision makers, implementation institutions and operational
structures. Through sharing, discussing and enriching
findings among relevant stakeholders, policy recommendations for
institutional reform and uptake will be shaped and actions for the
implementation validated for a successful uptake.
