In step with Europe

Abstract:
THE decision of Europe's science ministers to hold their first ever conference outside Europe in India, and not the U.S. or Japan or China or Brazil, is evidence of a paradigm shift in the European Union's relationship with the country in the field of science and technology (S&T). Science ministers (or high-ranking officials) of the 27 member-states met at the India-E.U. Ministerial Science Conference in New Delhi on February 7 and 8. It was co-chaired by Indian Minister for S&T and Earth Sciences Kabil Sibal, German Minister of Education and Research Annette Schavan, and E.U. Commissioner for Science and Research Janez Potocnik. The aim was to identify ways to strengthen the scope and quality of scientific cooperation between the E.U. and India. Europe is in the process of consolidating its skill, resource and infrastructure base in S&T through fora such as the European Research Area (ERA) and the European Research Council (ERC).

The areas in which Indian delegates on the steering committee evinced interest included next generation air transportation systems and related aeronautical technologies; advanced materials and alternative propulsion technologies for surface transport; photovoltaics, hydrogen and fuel cells; automation of canal distribution systems, development and management of aquifiers, ground water modelling, the impact of climate change on water resources and water security; systems biology, "open-source drug discovery programmes" and development of new strategies and tools for treating infectious diseases; network security, cyber security, cryptology, next generation networks and cognitive brain science; nanomaterials and industrial nanotechnology; and access to European research infrastructures in physical sciences, engineering sciences and medical sciences.
