U.S.-EU Research Cooperation Stakeholders Roundtable generates Summary for Policy Makers

Oct 22, 2012

A Summary for Policy Makers was the result of a roundtable meeting organized under the auspices of the Link2US and BILAT-USA projects and hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington, DC, USA, on September 19, 2012.

The roundtable addressed three areas:

  1. Incentives for cooperation that strengthen the relationship of researchers and institutions;
  2. Cooperation mechanisms without transnational funding; and
  3. Complexities of administering and managing diverse and international funding sources.

Participants included university and research institution administrators, scientific society and association leaders, government science policy advisers, and funding agency representatives.  They sought to identify needs and gaps and highlight approaches to these issues from broad stakeholder perspectives and provide directions for future work by on-going and future U.S.-EU cooperation efforts.

The summary relates lessons shared and potential action steps for each of the topics.
