Project Period:

2021 - 2022

Location:

The Norwegian Veterinary Institute (NVI) strategy for 2020 - 2023 focuses on the importance of good animal and human health, as well as healthy and safe food. The strategy also encompasses increased participation in programmes funded by the EU in order to achieve the UN sustainable development goals. The PES funding will be key in increasing our participation. The NVI has developed an action plan covering five areas to ensure that the NVI strategic focus on Horizon Europe is converted into action: 1. Operational excellence 2. Scientific connectivity 3. International engagement 4. Influential voice 5. Excellence in science The following actions will receive a particular strong focus: - The research administrative staff will arrange/participate thematic seminars for each research section, inviting representatives from both private sector and public management for discussions on how to best approach certain calls (focus on 2022) - The research sections are asked to actively participate in all relevant thematic meetings hosted by the RCN. This to observe any development in the scientific field, but also to front NVI related priorities - NVI organises a seminar on Horizon Europe SRIA in the winter of 2021 - 2022 (focus on development of priorities for 2023 - 2024 programme) - NVI researchers are challenged to participate in international thematic networks within their own scientific fields, including COST - An internal programme for MSCA and ERC is established to engage/activate/motivate researchers to apply In 2021 the "Pilot projects" mechanism is implemented at NVI. NVI researchers submit short project descriptions subject to internal evaluation. Four projects may be awarded <500.000 NOK each, starting fall 2021. Pilot projects will help research concepts/projects with great potential to get more substance in order to increase chances of success in Horizon Europe. This incentive is planned continued in future years.

Veterinærinstituttets strategi for 2020-2023 er i svært stor grad basert på FNs bærekraftsmål, og på viktigheten av god dyre- og menneskehelse, samt sunn og trygg mat, for å oppnå mange av disse ambisiøse målene. Deltakelse i Horisont Europa er helt sentralt for å oppnå disse målene, og instituttets strategi bygger videre på en ambisiøs målsetning om økt deltakelse i EU-finansierte programmer i Horisont Europa. Å søke EU-utlysninger krever kompetanse og kapasitet. PES-midler er derfor et finansieringsinstrument som bidrar til å styrke Veterinærinstituttets sjanser for tilslag på utlysninger under dette nye rammeprogrammet. Instituttet ønsker også å prioritere tiltak som øker synligheten til både forskere og bestemte temaer, og ved å gjøre dette, øke sjansen for prosjekttildeling. Disse tiltakene vil inkludere deltakelse i internasjonale forum og vitenskapelige møter, og interne tiltak for å øke kompetanse så vel som motivasjon for å søke EU-midler. Flere tiltak og initiativer beskrives i vedlagte prosjektbeskrivelse.
