Enhancing the bilateral S&T Partnership with Ukraine
Start date: 01 Sep 2008,
End date: 29 Feb 2012
The main objectives of BILAT-UKR are: - to strengthen the S&T cooperation between the EU and Ukraine in particular through a stronger participation of Ukraine in FP7 and other Community programmes and initiatives. - to further improve the framework for enhanced future and sustainable S&T cooperation, especially regarding legal and funding issues. - to provide a knowledge base for new cooperation themes and priority areas, and for emerging horizontal issues of sustainable cooperation, especially in the fields of scientific mobility, innovation and infrastructure. - to provide support for the working groups set up to organize a thematic and high level policy dialogue between the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the European Commission. The consortium gathers 11 various institutions of 7 countries (amongst which 2 Ukrainian neighbours), having a long-standing experience in international S&T cooperation. The project can draw on and complement the experience the partners have gained in several cooperation projects under FP6 or FP7. BILAT-UKR will provide a new momentum to improve the participation of Ukrainian scientists to FP7, and will prepare the ground for a possible association of Ukraine to FP7. The proposal is also expected to have an impact on the implementation of the S&T dimension of the European Neighbouring policy.
