Singapore and the European Union: R&D cooperation for the future, EUR 22980

Funded under: FP7

Abstract

The European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, FP7, is Europe's principal instrument for funding scientific excellence. The funding appropriated for FP7 is channelled to a number of dedicated initiatives designed and developed to contribute to the European Research Area (ERA), the EU's single market for research and innovation. European decision-makers have realised early, however, that for the ERA to be most effective, its scope must not be limited to Europe's physical or political frontiers. Singapore has made impressive strides in becoming an international hub for research; and this coupled with its location in the heart of the ASEAN region with a huge growth potential make it an ideal partner for Europe in its drive towards research excellence. This brochure will serve as a way to highlight those areas where Europe's and Singapore's respective R&D strategies are complementary, as well as a guide to finding practical information on cooperation opportunities.
