Author: Anita Tregner-Mlinaric, META Group

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 (Mobilising Institutional Reforms in Research and Innovation Systems) is a supporting action aiming at encouraging a better exploitation of European research and innovation programmes and a larger participation in the European Research Area of the EU12[1]  countries plus Croatia.

In order to allow these countries to better exploit the European research and innovation programmes, MIRRIS is providing an extensive policy learning exercise to identify barriers and debate how innovation systems can better address the participation to the European research area.

During the 1st round of Policy Dialogues conducted in period March to July 2014 in each of the above noted EU 13 Member States, input was collected from the target national stakeholders based on the country profile presented, which was addressing views on barriers and other relevant factors impacting single country’s participation to FP7/H2020. In average per country, 15-20 national stakeholders were present on behalf of the following groups: decision makers, implementation institutions and supporting structures.

From single country profiles and analysed statistics, it is evident that all EU 13 Member States are significantly lagging behind compared with EU15 Member States. Moreover, the participation to FP7  when providing a benchmark to previous FP5 and FP6 programmes significantly declined.
