EU-US sign agreement offering new opportunities for research cooperation

On 17 October 2016, the European Commission and the US Government concluded an agreement allowing European and American researchers to work together more closely on projects funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union's research and innovation programme.

The concluded agreement is called Implementing Arrangement, facilitates cooperation between US organisations and the participants in Horizon 2020, in situations in which the US organisations are funded by the US and receive no funding from the Horizon 2020 programme. It allows for a simplified cooperation between a Horizon 2020 project and a US entity by allowing researchers to organise their cooperation outside the formal Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement signed for each project, in accordance with applicable laws, rules, policies, and regulations of their respective funding programmes.

This agreement is another key step in support of the Commission's policy of making European research and innovation Open to the World.
