The Western Balkan region includes five countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYROM, Serbia and Montenegro.
The European Union launched its new policy to the Western Balkan region in 1999.
The Union's thus enriched Stabilisation and Association Process will remain the framework for the European course of the Western Balkan countries all the way to their future accession.
In 2005, a new call for Specific Support Actions, with a budget of EUR 3 M, will be addressed to high quality research centres in the WBC to give them the possibility to improve their research capacities in the priorities of FP6.
This will include: networking with other research centres in the WBC and EU, exchange of personnel and of research results and joint experiments, training for PhD students and post doctoral researchers, hiring of new young researchers, maintenance or renewal of S&T equipments. It is expected that some ten research centres shall built new capacities with these support actions.
