Bilateral and Regional Agreements of Cooperation of South Eastern European (SEE) Countries in the Field of Scientific Research and Higher Education

An Assessment Study elaborated with the support of UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe

Bereich: Forschungspolitik & Entwicklung

This study was elaborated with the support of UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe as Background Paper for the Expert meeting and Ministerial Round Table ‘Strengthening Science and HigherEducation in South Eastern Europe – From Bilateral to Pan-European Cooperation’, held in Tirana, Albania, 21-22 May 2010.
Bilateral, intergovernmental cooperation between old and new EU member states has a longhistory, but since 2001 the development of relationships with SEE countries has alsoaccelerated. It is only possible to integrate the strengths of these diverse relationships, overcome their weaknesses, use the opportunities they provide in a country or in the European Union in order to achieve the objectives such as:
  • enhance research and higher cooperation in Europe by fostering integration of South Eastern Europe into the growing European Research Era;
  • add value to existing bilateral agreements through multilateral coordination; 
  • improve interregional research and higher cooperation following the principles of the stabilisation and accession process in South Eastern Europe;
  • and avoid risks, if we assess the political motivations of each partner countries and the motives for developing relationships.
