Conference programme and presentations
International conference on Competence Research Centre Programmes and Policies
On Tuesday 3 February 2009 COMPERA organized a conference on Competence Research Centre programmes and policies in Düsseldorf (Germany).
The event brought together programme managers and policy makers in the field of CRCs to discuss and exchange views.
Among the topics having been discussed were:
The Establishment of CRC programmes: Based on the experiences of the COMPERA project and the outcomes of the CREST-Working group on industry-led CRCs, preconditions and factors of success will be presented as good practice
The management of CRC programmes: The success of CRC programmes largely depends on the management strategies that are applied by both governing and funding bodies. The conference will highlight/ focus on issues such as “selection of CRC proposals based on expected spill-over effects”, “management of second generation CRC programmes” and “international cooperation among CRCs”.
The future of CRCs in Europe: What is the future role of CRCs in the European Research Area (ERA)? What will be future trends of CRC-related programmes? Will CRCs be influenced by current trends outside the ERA, e.g. the USA or emerging countries such as China or India?
