Argentinean Bureau for Enhancing Cooperation with the European Community in the Science, Technology and Innovation Area. Phase II

Objective

ABEST II was conceived as a natural continuation of the successful ABEST/A-EU 6th Framework Programme project whose main objective was to promote joint participation of Argentinean and European scientists in the activities proposed by the 7th Framework Programme by improving the process of providing information on programmes and funding about cooperation with third countries. ABEST II will deepen these awareness and information activities stressing the promotion of the participation in some specific FP7 Programmes like People and will operate in such a way that after completion, a permanent self-sustained office within the Directorate for International Relations of the Ministry for Science, Technology and Productive Innovation of Argentina and a network of research and development institutions from Argentina and the European Union will continue with the promotion and support of the bilateral cooperation activities. ABEST II will also go beyond ABEST/A-EU through working in some specific objectives like better identifying and demonstrating mutual interest and benefit in S&T cooperation between the EU and Argentina and sharing best practices via joint fora such as workshops and presenting the state of the art and the prospects for cooperation in particular fields. One special activity will be added for promoting the participation of Argentinean SME in FP7 activities. Activities were organized around five Work Packages that will be executed by a team of four institutions from four different countries (Argentina, Italy, France and South Africa). Another four institution from three different countries (Spain, Belgium and Austria) with a long tradition of cooperation with Latin America will participate as members of the Steering Committee providing guidance, advice and experience to the project. The project is coordinated by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation of Argentina, the institution that manages the bilateral agreement in S&T between A
