The EaP PLUS project coordinates research and innovation activities between the EU MS and the EaP countries

EaP PLUS is a Horizon 2020 funded project supporting the cooperation between researchers from the Eastern Partnership countries and EU Member states. More specifically, the project aims to enhance the active participation of the EaP countries in the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme (general project information).

Having started in 2016, the project is finishing in September. In order to take stock of the achievements made over the past three years and for discussing the outlook for the EU-EaP cooperation in research and innovation, a final conference will be organised on June 11, 2019 in Brussels.

The EaP PLUS final conference coincides with the overall celebrations for the 10th anniversary of the EU's Eastern Partnership, which was launched at the EU-EaP Prague Summit back in 2009. During 2019, an array of events across all thematic and policy related fields relevant to the Eastern Partnership will be organised both in the EU and in the EaP countries.

The recommendations provide inputs to an open discussion among various stakeholders on the way to strengthen and sustain the bi-regional EU-EaP cooperation. A debate on the future of this cooperation under the upcoming Horizon Europe programme shall be initiated as well. The programme is rounded off with the introduction of selected beneficiaries of EaP PLUS' grant scheme and insights into the experiences learned from those countries already associated to the current Horizon 2020 programme (Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine).
