Visit of a delegation from the Russian Government to the EC: meeting on science, technology and education: round table
Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, and Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, jointly met their Russian counterparts on 24 February 2011 in Brussels.
Talks were held ahead of the European Commission/Russian Government meeting and covered the full range of EU/Russia cooperation in the field of technology, research and education.
At the Saint Petersburg Summit (May 2003), the European Union and Russia agreed to reinforce their cooperation by creating four "Common Spaces", i.e. areas of deep policy cooperation in a number of key sectors. The Common Space of Research and Education allows for enhanced cooperation in these fields, including cultural aspects. SHOTLIST
