FP7 ERA-NET on Nanosafety
Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Regione del Veneto (RVE)

Division / Department: Project Unit Research and Innovation

Country: Italy

The Veneto Region is one of the 20 regional governments making up the Italian political and administrative system. The activity of the regional administration goes from planning to implementing laws and programmes at regional level. Indeed, RV pays a special attention on the economic policy field.
Concerning the R&D matters, RV created in 2005 a special department on R&D with the general aim to reach the 3% of GDP in research and development. The Project Unit Research and Innovation aims to implement the regional policies in the field of innovation, research and productive districts. It has a close relationship with the scientific and technological parks and its mission is to support research activities, the processes and the networks of innovation, to create enterprises in sectors with high technology content.
The objective is to foster the research and the collaboration on innovation, valorise at international level all the potential and expertise present on the territory, contribute to the progress of knowledge, competitiveness and excellence in the Veneto Region. Through the Project Unit, the Veneto Region funds industrial research activities, experimental development, innovation and technological transfer, formation and use of qualified human resources and a number of related activities.
Since 2009 the Project Unit is partner, with Veneto Nanotech, of the project “EuroNanoMed – EUROpean network of trans-national collaborative RTD projects in the field of NANOMEDicine”, the ERA-Net for research programmes on Nanomedicine funded under the ERA-Net scheme of the European Commission for the period of 2009-2012.
The relevant policies of RV on R&D deal with the creation of a regional economy based on knowledge and technological innovation through the co-operation between universities, research centres and enterprises and the establishment of a regional framework where human resources can be reinforced and knowledge can be spread and integrated to obtain a general competitive advantage for the whole regional system.
Veneto Region will participate in the ERA-NET SIINN as the Programme Owner of the following research programme carried out at regional level: Regional Law n. 9, 18 may 2007. Regional Law n. 9 aims at consolidating and promoting the regional system of research and innovation through coordination and networking actions, in order to create centres of competences for research and innovation projects and to reinforce the regional system’s scientific basis and research capability, by encouraging the interaction between territorial stakeholders dealing with research and innovation activities. It stimulates technology development by fostering the collaboration between enterprises and research institutes and enhance international and interregional cooperation.
Regional Law n. 9 foster the participation at programme agreements between Ministries, universities, public and private bodies. It promotes the creation of consortia or foundations through agreements and participation forms, to support the access of single or associated enterprises to the regional, national and international research activities and infrastructures and the valorisation of scientific research results for enterprises.
Veneto Region is the main stakeholder of Veneto Nanotech (Partner No. 17).


The SIINN ERA-NET is funded under the ERA-NET scheme of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission, Research Directorate- General, Grant Agreement No. 265799
