EC Report: National strategies and roadmaps for international cooperation in R&I

The European Commission (EC) has published a new Thematic Report resulting from a Mutual Learning Exercise on National Strategies and Roadmaps for International Cooperation in R&I

The report discusses the main policy challenges and practices concerning the design and development of national strategies for international research and innovation cooperation. Its aim is to identify good practices, lessons learned and success factors based on robust evidence.

The report includes objectives and theories of change for international R&I strategies, selection of countries/regions and thematic priorities, the embedding and alignment challenge, the coordination challenge in developing and implementing R&I internationalisation strategies, the task of anticipating the future, and suggestions on how to assess progress in R&I internationalisation policy cooperation. The report includes the results from the first Working Meeting of the Mutual Learning Exercise on ‘National strategies and roadmaps for international coopration in R&I’, which was held in Paris on 3 and 4 June 2019.

Mutual Learning refers to exchanging, debating and learning from practices used by peers, which are of interest to several EU member states and countries associated to Horizon 2020.
