FInES Position Paper on Orientations for the Eight Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development in Europe (FP8): Final Version now available!

gic  3/28/2011

Targeting policy makers, the FInES Position Paper was conceived as an input to the preparation of the European Commission's orientations for the Eight Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development in Europe (FP8). It originates form the Future Internet Enterprise Systems (FInES) Cluster coordinated by the European Commission's DG Information Society and Media.

The fourth and final version of this paper focuses on the FInES domain, with a special emphasis on research, but also on policy and business-economic perspectives. Nonetheless, it takes into account the broader spectrum of ICT issues related to the orientations for FP8. It concludes on the urgent need for Europe's own distinctive approach on innovation especially concerning business values. Thus, a re-definition of the Enterprise is required, as well as a different approach to ICT research for supporting European enterprises.

The position paper makes several recommendations converging to the necessity for a European Innovation Partnership (EIP) dedicated to supporting the Competitiveness of European Enterprises through research, while suggesting several instruments for the implementation of the recommendations, as well as means for leveraging their impact.
