Compendium on Science & Research Cooperation between the European Union and the Russian Federation

Funded under: FP7


EU-Russia science cooperation has been, and continues to be, a great success story. European and Russian scientists and research organisations have been working together in all areas of science in the context of many bilateral programmes of the EU 27 member states, in the context of programmes funded and managed by the European Union (such as EU Framework Programmes for Research & Technological Development, TACIS), as well as through pan-European science organisations (such as INTAS, EUREKA, COST, the European Science Foundation) and international organisations and initiatives (such as CERN, the International Science & Technology Center (ISTC), ITER).
Many EU Member States have bilateral inter-governmental or inter-institutional cooperation agreements with Russia. For its part, the EU has concluded cooperation agreements with Russia on science & technology, on nuclear safety, and on controlled nuclear fusion.
At the same time, Russian research programmes and foundations, such as the Russian Federal Targeted Programme for Research & Development, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Foundation to Support the Development of Small-Scale Enterprises in Science & Technology, the Russian Foundation for the Humanities, have over the same period increasingly reached out to their European partners to involve them in their activities.
