BILAT-USA and Link2US are over! Read about the BILAT-USA project achievements!
Dec 6, 2012
The BILAT-USA project has been set up to establish a bi-regional, sustainable and knowledge based dialogue platform between S&T key players and stakeholders on both sides of the Atlantic at the thematic level, at horizontal level and at the policy level.
Established in a complementary way to the Link2US project, aiming to enhance the awareness and participation of European researchers and research organisations in national research programmes in the United States, BILAT-USA aimed to boost the bilateral S&T relationship under the S&T Cooperation Agreement between the EU and the United States, promoting the participation of U.S. researchers in the European Framework Programme.
In the initial phase BILAT-USA was dedicated to establish the whole infrastructure, broaden awareness about the project and its activities, and initiate the first contacts to EU and U.S. authorities. Main focus in the second phase was to deepen the transatlantic dialogue, to promote the last FP7 Calls and to maximise the impact of the portal as major info point for EU-U.S. cooperation activities in S&T.
