Communication from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament: A Strategic European Framework for International Science and Technology Cooperation, Com(2008) 588 Final

Funded under: FP7-ICT

Abstract

This Communication presents a strategic European framework for international cooperation in science and technology (S&T). It also covers the specific aspects of such cooperation in information and communication technologies (ICT).
By strengthening its research effort and facilitating the use of new technologies, Europe can respond more effectively and efficiently to the major challenges society is facing today. Deepening the European Research Area (ERA) through greater integration and cross-border coordination of research investments and activities will increase Europe's competitiveness and its attractiveness as a place to invest in research and innovation. Promoting European ICTs worldwide as a key driver of socio-economic growth will also contribute to the Growth and Jobs agenda1. Deepening the ERA should go hand in hand with widening it, through enhanced cooperation with international partners.
