 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The overall strategic objective of the E-URAL project is to improve in quantity and quality the participation of Russian researchers and SMEs in the “Environment (including climate change)” theme of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This objective answers to specific gaps that hamper the participation of Russia, such as the lack of knowledge among researchers and multipliers from Russia on the FP7 and the Environment theme and the lack of know-how on submission procedures under EU-FPs, as well as of awareness in Europe of skilled potential partners from Russia to be involved in EU-FPs projects. E-URAL project, through its multi-skilled consortium composed of various leading and long experienced institutions from EU and Russia, addresses these major obstacles in 4 main lines of activity: mapping of research expertise and needs in Russia in the field of Environment; awareness raising and capacity building for multipliers and researchers in Russia through training activities and staff exchanges; promotion of co-operation opportunities between EU and Russia; liaison with Russian and European stakeholders in the field of concern. The achievement of these strategic and ambitious objectives is guaranteed by the effective structure of the work plan and the partnership of both Russian and European partners with long experience in environment research or in training activities. As a result, the project will create new research consortia, will raise the number of Russian participants in the Framework Programme and identify key RTD topics for further work programmes in the FP7 Environment theme.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Joint science and technology (S&T) projects between the EU and Russia with respect to the environment are bringing knowledge and ecological progress to two very important regions of the world.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Russia, the largest country in the world, features numerous different environments and landscapes with the largest forest reserves on the planet, as well as the world's biggest reserves of energy and resources. This poses enormous challenges to Russian S&T researchers but has also helped build their expertise and increase their resourcefulness, particularly in their bid to tackle environmental issues.

In this spirit, the EU-funded project 'European Union and Russia link for S&T co-operation in the area of the environment' (E-URAL) has strengthened links between Russian researchers and EU-funded projects in the environment sector.

Initially, Russian researchers were not aware of all the funding opportunities for cooperation under the EU's generous Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). European researchers, on the other hand, were not aware of Russian expertise and in-depth knowledge in many different key areas that affect our world today, including environmental research. The E-URAL project increased the participation of Russian researchers in the FP7's Environment Theme and opened up important avenues for knowledge exchange.

To enhance collaboration between the EU and Russia, two major world powers, the project team mapped Russian research excellence and research needs in the environment sector. It created a database of 370 Russian stakeholders and relevant institutions across the federation in addition to enlightening Russian researchers on FP7 opportunities. Topics of common interest included climate change impacts, coastal zone management, biodiversity, forests and environmental technologies, all of which were explored in workshops held across Russia.

Once the dissemination of information was achieved, the project encouraged matchmaking activities to build project consortia that could apply for EU funding under FP7 calls for project proposals. This was also bolstered by the existence of other key EU-led initiatives such as IncoNet EECA, Bilatrus and ERA.Net RUS. The project's outputs were revealed in a successful conference held in Belgium, highlighting the long-term impact expected from enhanced EU-Russian collaboration.

These new partnerships have involved research institutes, universities, public authorities and government bodies in unprecedented ways. They have been cemented by a new, comprehensive database of stakeholders, important capacity-building initiatives, staff exchanges, workshops and brokerage events that will bring the EU and Russia much closer. Policymakers on both sides of the partnership can benefit from the results of joint projects and can help lead to a more environmentally aware and sustainable civilization.
