Final Report - BS-RESPOT (Research Potential of the Black Sea countries)

Project ID: 510665
Funded under: FP6-INCO


The organisation of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) has successfully built, over the past years, a complex institutional structure and is emerging as a significant actor of new European regionalism in the Black Sea, an area of growing strategic importance. Among the activities and goals of BSEC, Science and technology (S&T) has always been considered as a key priority and discussions at the level of the working group for cooperation in S&T aimed at the strengthening of this cooperation.

In this context, the BS-RESPOT project had been set up and implemented in order to provide sound scientific evidence that would support the aforementioned discussions and policy setting not only at the level of the BSEC but also in the European Union (EU).

More precisely, the main aim of the BS-RESPOT project had been to identify the most promising field for cooperation in S&T among the BSEC countries and between BSEC and EU.

The final scientific report provides a summary of the project objectives, a detailed overview of the work done under every work package (WP) included in the contract and in its amendment, as well as a description of the content of all the deliverables that had been issued and forwarded to the European Commission (EC).

The BS-RESPOT project constituted the only in-depth evaluation of the research potential of the 12 countries of the BSEC organisation and could be considered as a cornerstone for an enhanced cooperation among the countries but also between BSEC and EU.
