Funding instrument: Coordination and support action (not a research project) under FP7 Social Sciences and Humanities programme
Project funded within 7th Framework Programme, started July 2013 (still running)
Main goal: to encourage a better exploitation of European research and innovation programmes and participation in the European Research Area of the 13 target countries (which joined EU after 2004) (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) by setting up a process of analysis, dialogue, mutual learning among key concerned stakeholders, namely research, innovation and institutional actors. Within the project a network of key players within R&D&I systems was set .
The project aim was to establish a dialogue to understand how innovation systems can better address the participation to the European research and innovation area and enable innovation, competitiveness and openness. In order to obtain this goal MIRRIS has planned to 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. The consortium has planned an organization of 3 rounds of policy dialogues in each country involving relevant stakeholders from three levels: decision makers, implementation institutions and operational structures.
