The NEM Initiative is launching work on preparing the new NEM Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda – NEM SRIA 2016

The main intention of the SRIA document is to gather research and innovation topics which are of interest in the next period for the NEM community and where the NEM members organisations are ready to invest resources in investigation and experimentation on the defined topics. We expect that the NEM SRIA 2016 document will be consulted by various public authorities, such as European Commission and Members States, while defining research and innovation funding programmes for the next period. Therefore, it is very important to collect your inputs and present it to the public authorities and other interested bodies and communities!

To do so, please, provide your inputs for the NEM SRIA 2016 by using the online form available here until 24 May 2016.

The online form already includes some of the identified research and innovation topics, but they still have to detailed and, there, we need your inputs. Furthermore, you are also welcome to introduce new topics and areas, to be considered for the SRIA 2016.

Based on the inputs received, a draft version of the NEM SRIA document will be completed in June 2016. Further consolidation of the SRIA document will be done during the summer, so that its consolidated draft version will be available in September 2016 and provided to the NEM members for its approval.
