Strategic Forum for International S&T Cooperation
The Strategic Forum for International Scientific and Technological Cooperation (SFIC) is a dedicated configuration of ERAC. Its objective is to facilitate the further development, implementation and monitoring of the international dimension of ERA. In practice, this means sharing information and consultation between the partners (Member States and the Commission) with a view to identifying common priorities which could lead to coordinated or joint initiatives. The group also aims at coordinating activities and positions vis-à-vis third countries and within international fora.
SFIC is composed of high-level representatives of the Member States and the European Commission. The chair of SFIC is designated from among the representatives of the Member States for a period of two years. Currently Ms Rozenn SAUNIER (FR) is holding this position.
