Romania has shown a keen interest to make research one of the priorities of the future Swiss Contribution to the EU-enlargement. The scientific institutions in this country have both need and interest to integrate more into the Western European research context. The Swiss Contribution will allow this through research partnerships between Romanian and Swiss scientific institutions (Joint Research Projects).
The goal is the strengthening of both the Swiss and the Romanian research capacity. Outcomes are the advantages for the end users by the registered new patents and the number of innovations/inventions regarding products, processes and methodologies.
First a call for proposals will be launched in early summer 2011. An evaluation panel will prepare the selection of proposals for the Steering Committee. The decisions will be taken in spring 2012 after which the research partnerships will start their activities. The four thematic priorities are health (major diseases), impact of waste and pollutants on environment and climate, sustainable energy, economic growth and social disparities.
