inno TSD in the heart of the cooperation between the European Union and Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Cooperation between European Union and EECA countries has been always strategically important for both sides. In order to foster cooperation in Information and Communication Technologies between EU and the EECA regions, the PICTURE project has been launched by the European Commission in December 2011. PICTURE is led by inno TSD and involves 13 partners. The project’ main focus is put on support to ICT EU-EECA Policy dialogue.  

The intermediate results of PICTURE have been presented during the ICT Research and Innovation in Horizon 2020 - Eastern Partnership (EaP) Information Day, May 23, Kyiv, Ukraine, jointly co-organised by the European Commission / DG CONNECT, Ukrainian State agency on science, innovations and informatization, and PICTURE, among  others. The event was attended by more than 150 participants from 15+ countries, including the representatives from the European Commission and the European Technology Platforms.

 

inno TSD took the opportunity to moderate a discussion panel with participation of Morten MØller, Head of Programme Coordination Unit, DG CONNECT, European Commission and several EaP specialists. The discussion allowed to formulate a number of suggestions from EaP community to the EC and clearly demonstrated adequacy of most EaP ICT priorities to the Horizon2020 priorities.
