The JRC is playing an important role in providing scientific and technological support for EU enlargement and integration, through its Enlargement & Integration Action (E&IA). This action is specifically targeted at organisations and researchers from New Member States (EU2), Candidate and Potential Candidate Countries. Since 2005 the workshops and training possibilities are gradually opening for the partner countries of the European Neighbourhood Policy. In order to promote the co-operation with non EU countries associated to FP7 the JRC E&IA is now also open to Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Israel, Iceland and Norway.
Similar instruments for collaborating with the JRC are available for the target countries in the framework of the E&IA:
