WBC-INCO.NET Journal: Fall/Winter 2010


Dear readers,

the 6th edition of the WBC-INCO.NET Journal marks the beginning of a new phase in the Co-ordination of Research Policies with the Western Balkan Countries: WBC-INCO.NET ENHANCED. The official Kick-Off Meeting will take place on November 12, 2010 in Bečići, Montenegro, following the 9th meeting of the Steering Platform on Research for the Western Balkan countries on November 11.

Further information on WBC-INCO.NET ENHANCED and its innovation focus is available on page 5. To find out more about the future Innovation Union − the key to achieving the goals of the Europe 2020 Strategy − please read the related article contributed by the European Commission (see page 3). On page 4, we are featuring an article by the Spanish
Ministry of Science and Innovation, looking back on the focuses of the recent Spanish EU Council Presidency.

Furthermore, we are giving you an overview on the new FP7 calls, which have been opened since June 2010 (see page 2). The Conclusions of the past Steering Platform meeting, which took place in Belgrade on June 24, 2010 are presented on pages 1 and 2. As usual, our journal also includes a large number of articles dealing with S&T in the Western Balkans,
contributed by WBC-INCO.NET project partners, as well as with regional initiatives and projects.

Feedback on the WBC-INCO.NET journal as well as on the project in general is always welcome. We are also happy to receive your input for news articles and event announcements on our website www.wbc-inco.net. Please feel free to contact us at office@wbc-inco.net.
