BILAT: networking different stakeholders in order to strengthen research capacity

BILAT projects support the coordination for the enhancement and development of S&T Partnerships and focus on:

  • Improving the process of providing information on programs and funding designed to promote cooperation of third countries in the Framework Programme.
  • Better identifying and demonstrating mutual interest and benefit in S&T cooperation between the EU and specific third countries
  • Sharing best practices via joint fora such as workshops and presenting the state of the art and the prospects for cooperation in particular fields.

These actions comprise information and awareness activities, the establishment and reinforcement of information services such as a liaison/promotion structure, a comprehensive website and a mailing database, specialised thematic workshops or special high-level events both at the scientific level in specific third countries and in Europe as well as at the political and policy-making level. The activity is restricted to third countries, which have signed an S&T cooperation agreement with the EC or are in the process of signing such an agreement.
