a without Barriers, which illustrates our research priorities for the next six months, derives from the main motto of the Czech Presidency Europe without Barriers and promotes the idea for an open and competitive Europe. This will be the main focus of the Competitiveness Council. The European Research Area is thus logically one of the most important agenda items of the Czech Republic as the presiding country. Innovation nowadays no longer manages without the openness and cooperation between developed economies.
Within the sphere of research and development, synergy between scientists, academics and those in the private sector leads to powerful and positive results. The Czech Republic’s priorities for advancing research and development will be to create large research infrastructures that will serve as backbones of innovation plus improve employment conditions that will foster high-quality, flexible researchers without whom the backbones would be motionless.
These individuals involved in the research sphere will support Europe’s success in a global competitive market which is more demanding than ever before. Yes, we need Europe without barriers and that means Europe without barriers against the transfer of knowledge especially from cutting-edge research. The fifth freedom, freedom of knowledge, must be a permanent objective of the EU. The mobility of young researchers is crucial to this goal. Let us remember that career mobility between member states is still difficult and it should be improved. We would like to create a single European market in the field of human resources for research and development. To achieve this we would like to begin the removal of barriers that prevent career mobility within the European area.
Otherwise, Europe will face the departure and loss of its young researchers. During the Presidency, the Czech Republic will search for appropriate instruments that will improve the mobility of researchers and scientists. One possibility is the implementation of the European researchers’ passport and in the following months we will review its usefulness within the member states. Our next priority is effective investment into research and development. In the beginning, we will evaluate the national impact of the European research coordination. During the Czech Presidency, at the Conference EUROFORDIA in February, the European Commission will present the outcome of its evaluation on the impact of the Sixth Framework Programme.
The Czech Republic would like to lead the way on the debate regarding how these results may be translated into intelligent policy making. Finally, as no policy comes to life without getting people involved, we will host the Research Connection, the biggest European research event of the year. It will be organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Czech Presidency in Prague, close to the Day of Europe and the celebrations of the fifth anniversary of the fifth EU enlargement. This is a good opportunity to recall that research was the first EU policy which embraced the new democracies from Central and Eastern Europe into the EU realm, even before the actual membership. Since then, European research policy has become even more important for meeting the challenges of our common future.…
