Pilot Projects: Transatlantic Methods for Handling Global Challenges in the EU and the US
Mar 24, 2010
The general objective of the pilot projects, created through a European Parliament initiative, is to promote mutual understanding and learning among EU and US policy researchers and policymakers on a number of challenges with a global dimension. Pilot projects are to be used to fund innovative ventures between European and US policy makers that cannot be pursued under existing instruments of cooperation between the US and the EU. Their purpose is to foster common, more effective transatlantic approaches to key international policy challenges.
Five projects were implemented in 2008-2009 ad a final wrap-up conference has been organized in Brussels on 16 November 2009, where participants shared their experience and findings.For the period of 2009-2011 seven projects have been selected.
