This summary report gives an overview of the main results and recommendations presented in the analytical report 'Policy Approaches towards S&T Cooperation with Third Countries' published by the CREST Expert Group on 'Internationalisation of R&D' in December 2007. Applying the Open Method of Coordination, the Expert Group was established at the beginning of 2007 to take stock of the policies, strategies and measures adopted at national level for R&D cooperation with Third Countries (with China as a pilot case). A short paper with the recommendations prepared by the Expert Group was adopted by CREST at its meeting on 7 December 2007. The Working Group will proceed with its work in 2008. The focus will then be put on the policy approaches and objectives of cooperation in R&D with Russia, India and Brazil. In addition, options for joint or coordinated measures of Member States, Associated Countries and the European Commission will be identified and analysed.
