The First Compendium On Science & Research Cooperation Between the European Union & Russia

The first ever Compendium on Science & Research Cooperation between the European Union & the Russian Federation has been jointly presented in Moscow by the Head of the Delegation of the European Commission to Russia, Mr. Marc FRANCO, and the Head of Department for Strategy & Prospective Projects of the Ministry for Education & in Science, Mr. Sergey IVANETS.

This publication is a joint initiative of the Delegation of the European Commission to Russia, the EU Member States Embassies in Russia and the Ministry of Education & Science of the Russian Federation. It presents all the most important elements of the vast EU-Russia "science landscape" in one place. Presenting the publication, the Head of the Delegation of the European Commission to Russia, Ambassador Franco said: "Science & research, as well as higher education, are amongst the most dynamically developing areas of EU-Russia cooperation, covering a wide range of thematic areas and topical questions, where we have seen a remarkable success for many years. The Compendium is a timely reflection of our common intellectual heritage, academic traditions and the complementarities of our scientific systems; it makes an important practical contribution to the implementation of the Common EU-Russia Space in Research, Education and Culture". The Compendium provides easy-to-use guidance through the agreements, programmes and institutions which underpin scientific cooperation with Russia at the level of 27 EU Member States as well as at the level of the European Union as a whole. It gives an overview of various forms of support available for European and Russian researchers, and contains information about some select pan-European and international funding organisations. The publication is targeted at scientists and research organisations in the EU and in Russia seeking opportunities for cooperation, as well as at policy-makers and science managers who require an overview of the respective agreements and programmes.
