Komitee SEDECi komisjoni õppekülastus teemal „Digiülemineku, kosmosevaldkonna ja ELi 2020. aasta järgse teadusuuringute programmi koostoimete edendamine"

02. juulil toimus Euroopa Regioonide Komitee (CoR) teaduskomisjoni (SEDEC) õppekülastus Tallinna ja Rae valda. Visiidi jooksul külastatati TalTechi, teadus- ja ärilinnakut Tehnopol, Rae vallas asuvat Jüri Gümnaasiumi ja selle vahetus läheduses asuvat ABB tehnoloogialinnakut.  

Õppevisiidi läbivaks teemaks oli kosmosevaldkonna, digiülemineku ja Euroopa Liidu järgmise perioodi teadusuuringute programmi võimalustega tutvumine.

Tehnopoli pool tervitas osalejaid Tehnopol AS juhatuse liige Indrek Orav, kes tutvustas Tehnopoli tegemisi ja tegiTehnopolis asuva Euroopa Kosmoseagentuuri äriinkubatsioonikeskuse lühitutvustuse. 

Ürituse avakõne pidas TalTech rektor akadeemik Jaak Aaviksoo.

Euroopa Regioonide Komitee SEDEC komisjoni liikme, Rae vallavanem Mart Võrklaeva sõnul on ettevõtluse, teadustegevuse ja hariduse integratsioon juba gümnaasiumiastmes oluline suund, kuhu poole SEDEC komisjoni liikmed koolipidajatena üle Euroopa vaatavad. 

"Hea meel on ühe sellise näitena tutvustada Jüri Gümnaasiumi, kus alustatakse teaduspõhise õppe, digitehnoloogiate tutvustamisega ning majandusõppega juba algklassides ning süvendatakse aasta-aastalt kuni gümnaasiumiklassideni. Samuti pakume selliseid praktilisi  õppeaineid nagu digiloovus, robomatemaatika, robootika, programmeerimine, majandusõpetus, projektijuhtimine, erinevatele tehnilistele programmidele ülesse ehitatud õppeaineid nagu Autocad," sõnas Võrklaev.

Kuna õppevisiidi läbivaks teemaks oli just kosmosevaldkonna, digiülemineku ja Euroopa Liidu järgmise perioodi teadusuuringute programmi võimalustega tutvumine, millest kõnelesid päeva esimeses pooles Prof. Katrin NymanMetcalf Euroopa Kosmose Agentuurist ja Regioonide Komitee raportöör, Rakvere linnavolikogu liige Andres  Jaadla

Jaadla sõnul  on EL kujundamas oma kosmosepoliitika programmi aastateks 2021–2027 ja  selle märksõnadeks on  just kvaliteetsed, ajakohased ja turvalised kosmosega seotud andmed ja teenused. "Selliste andmete ja teenuste kasutamistest saadav sotsiaal-majanduslik kasu nagu suurem majanduskasv ja rohkemate töökohtade loomine ELis ning suurem turvalisus on olulised kõikidele piirkondadele üle Euroopa, sealhulgas Eesti linnadele ja valdadele" lisas Jaadla. 

Päeva esimesse poolde mahus Dr Ralf-Martin Soe oluline ettekanne Euroopa Komisjoni programmist Horizon 2020 rekordilise toetuse saanud targa linna tippkeskuse Finest Twins loomisest ja edasistest plaanidest.

Lisaks avanes külalistel Mustamäel Taltech/Tehnopoli linnakus ainulaadne võimalus tutvuda isesõitva bussiga Iseauto, mis sobib liiklemiseks linnasüdametes, ülikoolilinnakutes ning teisteski kontrollitud keskkondades.  

Visiidi täpsema ajakava ja esinejatega on võimalik tutvuda allpool.

Presentation (.pdf)

 

Prof. Katrin Nyman–Metcalf, Chairman of the International Relations Committee of ESA  

Space plays an increasingly important role in our everyday life. Space-related inventions and services are already changing the way we live and work.  Europe - both the European Union and ESA - play increasingly important roles in the global space economy.

The space sector can improve growth and jobs in regions, and synergies between the digital and space technology development are highly conducive to successful attraction of investments, but this requires attention to how to best use the synergies, how to enhance cooperation and how to encourage new entrants to the field.

10.05 a.m. Presentation on "Cooperation between the space hubs, the digital innovation hubs and EU policy support"
Presentation (.pdf)

 

Andres Jaadla (EE/ALDE), the CoR rapporteur on the future EU Space Framework Programme 

The Digital Europe funding programme, as provided for under the "Single Market, Innovation and Digital" chapter of the EU's next MFF, prioritises Digital Innovation Hubs (regional competence centres), related with smart specialisation platforms. The proposed future EU Space Programme aims to develop a business-friendly space ecosystem through cooperation between undertakings in the form of space hubs to bring together, at regional and national levels, actors from the space and digital sectors, as well as users. The European Union should foster the creation and expansion of Union-based space companies to help them succeed, including by supporting them in accessing risk finance in view of the lack, within the Union, of appropriate access to private equity for space start-ups and by creating innovation partnerships.
