Increasing International STI Cooperation between Brazil and the European Union

INCOBRA is a 36-month Coordination and Support Action aiming to increase, enhance and  focus Research and Innovation (R&I) cooperation between BR and EU.

The INCOBRA consortium comprises 13 partners (7 from EU and 6 from BR), including Universities, Research Organizations, International Organizations, Technology Parks, Private Companies and Funding Agencies.

The project is expected to contribute to: (i) increased cooperation patterns – by supporting cooperation networks among BR and EU R&I actors; (ii) enhanced framework conditions – by fostering coordination and alignment of R&I funding in BR and EU; (iii) more focused BR-EU R&I cooperation – by identifying emerging topics and opportunities in priority R&I areas for cooperation.

Capacity building, sustainability will also be fully addressed by INCOBRA.  

INCOBRA also assumes innovation (holistic concept) as a key driver for BR-EU STI cooperation and Strategic Foresight as a relevant tool to anticipate R&I trends of mutual interest for BR and EU R&I actors, while promoting mutual openness of BR and EU R&I funding programmes to encourage cooperation.  

Building upon a stakeholder-driven basis, INCOBRA aims at actively involve the members of the Stakeholder Group.  The Stakeholder Group will have as its core responsibilities and benefits: 

  • to provide inputs to relevant INCOBRA's deliverables;
  • to participate in key activities of  INCOBRA – such as the Strategic Foresight Workshop, the Brokerage Events, the Training Camps, the Strategic Scoping Workshops, the Focus Group, the Webinars, Info Days and Info Sessions;
  • to have priority access in certain INCOBRA activities and outputs, namely the Cooperation Networks and the Funding Agencies Platform;
  • to mobilize BR and EU R&I actors among their network of contacts to engage in INCOBRA activities;
  • to further engage with other BR and EU R&I actors, in order  to agree and undertake activities that would ensure the sustainability and continuity of INCOBRA outcomes beyond its lifetime.  

Furthermore, the EU-Brazil Bilateral R&I Cooperation Networks which will receive financial and technical support from the project are expected to involve members of the Stakeholder Group as participants.

Objectives

INCOBRA impacts will help: 

  • inducing institutional change at the policy and programme levels of the BR-EU R&I cooperation; 
  • enhancing  framework conditions; 
  • reinforcing funding landscape; 
  • inducing behaviour change at the R&I actors level, leading to increased cooperation patterns; 
  • developing more focused cooperation activities; 
  • designing concrete measures to maximize such impacts.  
Activities

Supporting BR-EU Policy Dialogue by Providing Evidence-based Guidelines

by identifying emerging and long term topics, opportunities, trends and drivers in specific Research & Innovation (R&I) areas, which may be jointly explored by Brazilian and EU R&I actors, ultimately enabling them to play a leading role in such areas.

Scaling up R&I implementation by supporting bilateral cooperation networks

by supporting new or existing Brazilian-EU R&I cooperation networks, helping them to coordinate R&I agendas, to share R&I efforts and to ultimately contribute to scaling up their R&I results.

Enhancing framework conditions by promoting coherence and coordination at policy and funding programme levels

by strengthening coordination and alignment of R&I funding policies and programmes between Brazil and the EU, through the creation of a Funding Agencies Platform, ultimately leading to further openness of such programmes to international cooperation activities.

Strengthening cooperation among BR and EU R&I actors on H2020 and beyond

by stimulating more sustainable interactions among Brazilian and EU R&I actors through a set of events and capacity building activities, ultimately leading to a more efficient joint exploitation of funding opportunities in Brazil and in the EU.
