The impact of BS-ERA.NET project will lead to a durable and positive cross-border co-operation within the related programmes at EU and International level.
The BS-ERA.NET will impact upon co-ordinated management structure and by gradually establishing new mechanisms which will interact and create a coherent, structured and agreed RTDI turn-key ready strategy.
The main expected impact of the BS-ERA.NET is foreseen to:
lead to a critical strategic corridor between East and West;
develop opportunities for programme makers and programme managers from the European Union to interact with BS region, in order to enhance understanding of the region and increase Black Sea RTDI capabilities;
develop the First Black Sea Research Programme (BSRP);
develop the first EU coordinated activities at national RTDI programmes level since UE is neighboring the Black Sea (1st January 2007);
BSRP is an additional initiative that complements the policies at the regional level by facilitating the cooperation between the EU and the region and by the development of regional cooperation within the BS, based on national RTDI programmes.
The impact of the BS-ERA.NET by involving different nations and neighboring states will have major political and socio-economic benefits for the whole extended region.
It is foreseen that the BSRPs output would feed the BS Joint Call preparation and will have a significant contribution to the sustainability of the project.
On a political level BS-ERA.NET contributes in several ways to European Added Value by further integrating the partner countries in the European Research Area.
