Science and Innovation for Development

Brochure

This publication looks at the contribution and complementarity of EU international research and innovation cooperation with developing countries in the seventh EU Framework Programme on Research (FP7) (2007-2013).

The study covers Africa, South America and South-East Asia, with a specific focus on Kenya, South Africa, Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Vietnam, Thailand and India.

The authors find that FP7 activities involving partners from developing countries are very relevant to achieving EU development objectives, both geographically and thematically. FP7 has made a good start in building up a global European research and innovation community-of-practice, an important pre-condition for the EU to effectively deal with the global challenges included in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
