STI Policy Recommendations: EU-EaP Beyond 2020

Bereich: Forschungspolitik & Entwicklung

The STI Policy Recommendations: “EU-EaP Beyond 2020” is the main outcome of the STI International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries – PLUS project (EaP PLUS), which was funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 692471 (from 09/2016 until 08/2019).

Read into the executive summary:

This document provides a concise description of existing challenges and concrete policy recommendations regarding the further STI cooperation between the EU and the countries of the Eastern Partnership (EaP). The recommendations are rooted to the results and observations during the fact-finding missions implemented in every EaP country in the context of the EaP PLUS’ H2020 Coordination and Support Action; to other reports and deliverables of that project; as well as to the series of Peer Reviews that have been implemented in the EaP countries in the recent years. The focus of these recommendations is on the strengthening of the EU – EaP STI cooperation complementing the recommendations of the peer reviews, which mainly address the improvement of the national STI systems in the EaP countries. They are directed to various target groups, most prominently to the EU Commission; to actors on the policy level of EU Member States or EaP countries; to other R&D stakeholders in the EaP countries (e.g. researchers and research performing institutions), and others.

The recommendations are structured along four chapters:

A. Recommendations addressing policy issues

B. Recommendations that focus directly on the transition from Horizon 2020 to Horizon Europe

C. Recommendations towards the improvement of STI systems in the EaP countries, as far as this provides necessary preconditions to further expand and improve EU-EaP STI cooperation

D. Specific recommendations targeting the field of cooperation in innovation

The development of this policy recommendations paper coincided with the 10th Anniversary of the Eastern Partnership policy as well as with the beginning transition from H2020 to Horizon Europe in 2019.
