In the opening session, the representative from Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomed all participants in Sarajevo underlining the important role of the Steering Platform on Research both for the region and the economies.

The RCC welcomed the participants and the opportunity to host and co-chair the meeting of the Steering Platform which allowed for exchanging information and discussing possible concrete steps for operationalizing regional cooperation in research and development.

The Commission welcomed the opportunity to meet with all the Western Balkans and relevant stakeholders together which was a valuable and timely occasion to take stock of actions taken and more importantly to steer further the work aiming at strengthening the research and innovation capacity and improving the scientific excellence in the Balkan Region.
