States Representatives Group

M1%20-%20cropped.jpg'My motivation as Chair is to strengthen the involvement of the States Representatives Group building the new IMI.'

Gunnar Sandberg, chair of the IMI States Representatives Group

 

The IMI States Representatives Group (SRG) is an advisory group within IMI and consists of representatives from Member States and countries associated with the EU’s research framework programmes. SRG members represent their national governments.

 

The role of the SRG

The SRG provides opinions on IMI’s scientific priorities, and is formally consulted on our Annual Work Plans and topic texts before Calls for proposals are launched. By interacting with national/regional stakeholders and authorities, SRG members aim to ensure that our scientific priorities are in line with research programmes on a regional, national and EU level in order to look for potential synergies and prevent overlaps.

Additionally, SRG members:

  • provide opinions on our progress and achievements, and present those achievements at the national/regional level;
  • give recommendations or proposals to the IMI Governing Board on technical, managerial and financial matters in particular when those matters affect national or regional interests;
  • give opinions and advice on the involvement of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in our projects.

Members of the SRG also act as an interface with relevant stakeholder groups within their respective countries. In some countries, members give direct support to stakeholders, especially SMEs, giving them advice when applying for our Calls for proposals.

 

Chair and Vice-Chair

The current Chair is Gunnar Sandberg (Sweden) and the Vice-Chair is Marta Gómez Quintanilla (Spain). The Chair and the Vice-Chair are elected for a period of two years.

The SRG Chair attends meetings of the IMI Governing Board as an observer and takes part in the deliberations, but has no voting rights.

More information about the SRG is available in the Rules of Procedure of the IMI2 JU States Representatives Group.

 

Meetings

The SRG meets at least twice per year, usually at the IMI Programme Office in Brussels.

 

Cooperation with the IMI Scientific Committee

The SRG collaborates with the IMI Scientific Committee. The two bodies meet once a year to exchange views and discuss common areas of interest, such as IMI’s scientific priorities, and ways to enhance involvement of SMEs and patients in IMI activities.
