WP4 is implementing two Working Group Meetings aiming at the discussion and identification of administrative procedures and legal aspects of the Pilot Joint Call (PJC), in order to prepare a decision memo to be decided on at the Steering Board meeting in October 2006.

This invitation addresses not only the WP leaders. The participation of experts in the field of national administrative and legal procedures as well as the underlying rules and regulations within the promotion of research and development (R&D) and innovation activities in their countries is of utmost importance.

This first meeting in Slovenia is dealing with specific details of the rules and regulations involving the implementation of the PJC, the second meeting on June 26/27 in France will focus on project application procedures & assessment within the Pilot Joint Call (PJC).

Tartini Square Piran

Steering Board Meeting in Vienna, Austria, WP4

05. - 07. Apr. 2006

The 4th Steering Board Meeting is the first occasion where the consortium of the enlarged SEE-ERA.NET will meet: The Albanian Ministry of Education and Science and the Serbian Ministry of Science and Environmental Protection participate no longer as observers but as new partners to the Steering Board Meeting.

Additionally, this Steering Board Meeting gives further potential observers or partners (the Research Council of Norway) the opportunity to present their West Balkan activities and programmes. After this open part, the Steering Board Meeting will continue, for partners only.

One of the key elements of the internal Steering Board Meeting will be the discussion of a first draft of a SEE-ERA.NET pilot joint call (WP 4 together with WP 5). Information will be given also on the interview results with representatives of international organisations, NGOs and other players in the region.

As discussed and agreed upon during the last Steering Board Meeting in Bled in September 2005, there will be an informal meeting of an internal forum of the West Balkan countries prior to the Steering Board Meeting (April 5, 2006).

SEE-ERA.NET Steering Board Meeting in Bled

22. - 23. Sep. 2005

The Slovenian Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (MHEST) organised the 3rd SEE-ERA.NET Steering Board meeting on 22 and 23 September in Bled, Slovenia. The MHEST is a key actor in the Southeast European Era-Net. The ministry is in charge of the implementation of Work Package 2 (WP2) that represents a major knowledge input for SEE-ERA.NET as regards to:
· structure of the national systems of research and RTD priorities of all West Balkan countries,
· identify specific needs for enhancing their presence in international, multilateral and European RTD co-operation endeavours.

SEE-ERA.NET will assure the quality of its future operations by identifying and addressing the real needs and problems of the West Balkan target countries.

WP2 is closely connected to WP1 and WP3, which also operate on the level of systematic information exchange. Results of WP2 will be presented during the Information Exchange Conference organized on 15 and 16 December 2005 by the Croatian SEE-ERA.NET partner, the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. This Steering Board meeting will discuss the reports of the first three work packages, talk about the final plan of the Zagreb conference and decide on strategic communication issues (WP7).

Furthermore, this SEE-ERA.NET Steering Board meeting will tackle the Identification and Discussion on Strategic issues by presenting an updated step-by-step plan by the Work Package 4 leader, the International Bureau of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany. This work package very much relies on the results of the Information Exchange work packages (WP1, WP2 and WP3) and represents the central element of SEE-ERA.NET. It is designed to lay the bases for implementation of joint activities, such as a joint multilateral call for proposals (WP5 and WP6).
