The European Commission is organising a workshop on how to access and mobilise EU funds to pursue implementation of the Action Plan for a Maritime Strategy in the Atlantic area.
Directly managed EU funds (i.e. those managed by the Commission) are those for the environment (LIFE+), the EU's research and innovation funding programme (Horizon 2020), the programme to assist enterprises and SMEs (COSME) and a part of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). In addition, the European Investment Bank can mobilise its financing tools and expertise in support of suitable projects in order to further the Action Plan's priorities.
EU funds that are co-managed by the Member States (the so-called European Structural and Investment Funds: the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the European Fund for Regional Development, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Social Fund) can also be put to use in the implementation of the Action Plan. Operational programmes are being developed at national and regional level for the implementation of these funds. It will be important that they also take account of the Atlantic Action Plan.
The objective of the workshop is to provide participants stakeholders in the Atlantic area with an improved understanding of how the proposed actions could be financed by directly managed and co-managed EU funds, and to share best practice in the preparation of Operational Programmes.
Public stakeholders and organisations (e.g. national, regional and local authorities) responsible for the preparation and establishment of spending plans (e.g. regional Operational Programmes) encompassing EU funds.
Other stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of projects that can benefit from EU funding (e.g. research bodies, financial institutions, European and national associations, private companies).

Presenters: Jason Volk and Greg Blair
Model Developer and Fisheries Scientist
Rapid worldwide development of marine finfish cage farming has raised awareness over the possible genetic and ecological effects of escaped fish on wild populations. With increased interest in implementation of marine aquaculture in the United States, NOAA Fisheries and other regulators charged with stewardship of marine ecosystems need tools to understand and mitigate risks presented by aquaculture escapees. To develop an understanding of genetic and ecological effects of escapes and design management strategies to address potential risks to marine resources, NOAA Fisheries has developed a numerical decision-support tool: the Off-shore Mariculture Escapes Genetics/Ecological Assessment (OMEGA) model.
This talk will discuss the OMEGA model and present results for a hypothetical sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) culture program along the U.S. West Coast. NOAA Fisheries is using the OMEGA model to identify and evaluate risks of marine aquaculture operations, design sustainable aquaculture programs, explore the effects of regulation, and identify research priorities for areas of uncertainty.
OMEGA model input parameters include size and growth characteristics of cultured fish, frequency and magnitude of escape events, survival of escapees in the wild, probability of escapees encountering a conspecific natural population and interbreeding, and population dynamics of the natural population. Model results describe the influence of aquaculture escapees on spawning biomass, juvenile production, and genetic fitness of the composite population. Effects of interactions on fitness and abundance are based on the frequency and relative abundance of cultured fish that escape and survive to encounter a natural population, the difference in survival characteristics between the artificial and the natural environments, and the genetic legacy of the cultured and natural populations.
We are interested in speaking with individuals interested in collaboration to develop model scenarios, evaluate model parameters, and validate model results.
Jason Volk is a senior model developer at ICF International, specializing in programming and design of decision-support tools and model interface design.
Greg Blair is a senior fisheries scientist at ICF International, specializing in model development, assessment of impacts and disturbance in natural systems, and mitigation planning.
On Wednesday the 15th of January 2014, there is a webinar held where the authors of the model will give an explanation of how the model works, and answer any questions.

What’s in Horizon 2020 for you? What are the new calls and how to apply for funding?
Register to the Info Day 2014 in Brussels, on 17 January, to get first-hand information on the new EU funding instrument and to get full information on the new calls for proposals of Societal Challenge 2 (Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research bio-based industries and the Bioeconomy). The Blue Growth Call will be presented in details in a parallel afternoon session from 14:00 in the room JENKINS.
Rationale for the Blue Growth Focus Area Call
Rapid technological progress in working offshore in ever-deeper waters, the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the need to look at how the 71 % of the planet that is seas and oceans can deliver human necessities such as food and energy in a sustainable way have opened up an opportunity for blue growth with the aim to harness the huge potential of Europe's oceans, seas and coasts for jobs and growth. This focus area addresses this overall challenge through five cross-cutting priority domains supporting the Blue Growth Agenda: valorising the diversity of marine life; sustainable harvesting the deep-sea resources; new offshore challenge; ocean observation technologies; and the socioeconomic dimension. The aim of the focus area is to improve the understanding of the complex interrelations between various maritime activities, technologies, including space enabled applications, and the marine environment to help boost the marine and maritime economy by accelerating its potential through R&I. It will enhance sectoral and cross-sectoral cooperation by building on major international, regional and national initiatives.
To maximize the impacts of activities undertaken under this Focus Area, WP 2014-2015 will focus on key priorities for the EU, so as to mobilize the necessary critical mass to tackle these large cross-cutting challenges with adequate scale and scope.

New policy approaches in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), new instruments as well as pressuring societal demands raised by economic actors and civil society challenge inclusive STI policies to deliver discernible social, economic and ecological benefits of R&D in effective ways. This will not only require new thinking in terms of STI evaluation designs, methodological diversity and interaction between policy-making and evaluation studies but also between STI governance, public management and society in general.
The international conference "Evaluation of STI policies, instruments and organisations: new horizons and new challenges" addresses these challenges in this thematic sessions:
- New approaches for evaluating STI Policies and Instruments
- Assessing the variety and long-term impact of research
- STI Policy Evaluation in new- and non-OECD Countries
- Challenges in assessing new European Research Area polices, programs and instruments
- Evaluating for selection – challenges and opportunities
- Evaluation practices scrutinized
- Evaluation of STI policy portfolios and policy mixes
- Data, monitoring systems and indicators
- New Developments in Innovation Policy Evaluation
- Evaluation of International RTI Programs
- HORIZON 2020: the overall evaluation approach
Central questions addressed during the conference are:
- What are adequate evaluations concepts, methodologies and practices vis-à-vis new political STI policy approaches?
- What kind of evaluations is needed to respond to new STI policy-delivery models?
- Whether and how can transformative effects of new mission-oriented approaches be identified and assessed?
- By which criteria should funding bodies evaluate research on grand societal challenges, and how ‘political’ become evaluations and criteria in such policy-driven framework?
- How can long-term effects of STI interventions be measured and the social impact of R&D be better appraised?
- What are the evaluation challenges of ERA level policies and instruments?
- What new approaches and assessment criteria are needed to meet the requirements of new instruments and institutions with a truly European pretence?
- How do ERA developments interfere with national level evaluation?
- What new indicators are needed to support the evaluation of new national, European and international STI policies?
- How should research information systems be meaningfully designed to be useful for next-generation monitoring and evaluation?

RDA Europe Workshop prior to the RDA Plenary in Washington, 10 September 2013, RZG Munich - Garching
The present European and global research data landscape is highly fragmented, by disciplines or by domains (oceanography, life sciences, health, agriculture, space, climate, etc.). A variety of institutions, some national, some international, strive to deal with some aspects of data, but no effort exists where some degree of coherence is achieved or even sought. (From Research Data e-Infrastructures: Framework for Action in H2020 European Commission, Directorate General CNECT, Directorate C: Excellence in Science, Unit C1 - e-Infrastructures)
The Research Data Alliance (http://rd-alliance.org) aims to facilitate the global research data sharing and exchange. This international effort encourages increasing interest among people who wish to participate to global research data initiatives. There is a parallelism of community based harmonization approaches, including worldwide active communities, stimulated by answering the big scientific and societal challenges and driven by the need to address cross-disciplinary challenges. The iCORDI (www.icordi.eu) project is the European plugin into global RDA activities and is the organiser of this workshop.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss European aspects of global research data sharing and exchange as well as inject new ideas and European achievements to be presented and represented during the RDA 2nd Plenary meeting taking place at the National Academy of Sciences 16 – 18 September 2013 in Washington DC.
The meeting is also an opportunity for those who are unable to attend the Plenary meeting to understand RDA and provide inputs. The workshop will look at the European Commission’s Research Data e-Infrastructures: Framework for Action in H2020 to understand the focus & direction pan-European and global activities should take.
With respect to the cross-disciplinary activities it is obvious that the notions of "components or building blocks" of common data infrastructures and building specific "data bridges" are becoming accepted metaphors for approaching the data complexity and enable data sharing. The Research Data Alliance aims to tackle this large problem in a bottom-up fashion with short-term concrete-goal working groups.
Many RDA working groups (http://rd-alliance.org/working-groups/general-introduction/) have already started; Interested individuals as well as new working groups can join the process at any point in time.
Join us in Garching/Munich to actively participate and share your ideas and thoughts.
