International Cooperation


This action implements objectives set out in the Commission Communication on the Global Approach to Research and Innovation and in the Council Conclusions of 28 September 2021. It focuses on four aspects, namely: further developing the values and principles for international cooperation to be promoted in multilateral dialogues with partner countries and international fora; launching pilot initiatives on the Team Europe approach for a specific world region; developing a European Science Diplomacy Agenda; and promoting a coordinated joint approach for engagement in multilateral initiatives.

The action should be implemented through coordination between the Commission and the Member States, and will involve cooperation with stakeholder organisations, key third country partners and international organisations. All Member States are expected to be involved in these actions.
