Streamlining bio-research in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States with Europe through multilateral cooperation activities

Objective

BIO TRIANGLE brings together the leaders in BIO-research from Europe and four industrialised Third Countries – which together form a imaginary TRIANGLE around our globe. The project’s objective is to foster scientific and technological cooperation in the Knowledge-Based Bio Economy (KBBE) between Europe and Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. It builds upon two important, ongoing initiatives: the EU-US Task Force on biotechnology, and the International KBBE Forum, involving the EU, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The planned activities include the organisation of: i) priority setting workshops and policy dialogue fora, ii) a multilateral roundtable to coordinate related initiatives, such as INCONETs and BILAT projects, iii) ‘twinning’ activities between projects in the EU and partner countries, including an online information exchange platform, iv) working visits of high-level researchers & summer schools for early-stage researchers, to and from the EU and partner countries. In addition, information will be disseminated through a website and promotion materials, and via related networks and initiatives. The expected impacts of BIO TRIANGLE are: strengthened cooperation amongst all partner countries, both at the policy-making and the researcher level; greater awareness amongst researchers of the possibilities, benefits and best-practices of bilateral and multilateral S&T cooperation; and increased exchange of knowledge and skills that support the further development of KBBE.
