Call for expression of interest to participate in thematic focus groups

The Malta Council for Science and
Technology is currently preparing the update to the National Research and
Innovation strategy based on input from the business sector in order to
identify the major strengths and opportunities for innovation in Malta. The
outcomes of these discussions will help shape the priorities for funding in
terms of the European Cohesion Funding for the period 2014 – 2020.

The Malta Council for Science and
Technology is organising a series of focus groups to bring together private
sector stakeholders for an interactive discussion to help determine the
potential for research and innovation based growth in niche areas within these
sectors: tourism, energy, the creative industries, health, high value-added
services and manufacturing, financial services, ICT and transport, as well as
the kind of support measures which you feel are necessary to exploit this
potential to the full.  It is important
to emphasise that the discussion will focus on the means towards
innovation-based growth within niche areas in these sectors.

You are kindly invited to register to
participate in any of these focus groups by completing the attached
Registration Form and forwarding by e-mail to by 3rd April
2013.

MCST will organise one or more focus
groups during April and May. Those who submit their expression of interest by
the above deadline will be informed of the date and time of the focus group
meeting in due course.

For further information call on 2360
