[WBC-RTI.INFO Newsletter] - Conclusions of the Western Balkans Steering Platform R&I and Ministerial Meetings (Brussels, 23-24 September 2019)


The Steering Platform (SP) on Research and Innovation for Western Balkans was established in 2006 to facilitate the interaction between the Western Balkan economies, the EU member states, the candidate and potential candidate countries and other states associated to the Framework Programmes for RTD and the European Commission. Its main objective is to support the enhanced integration of the WBs in the European Research Area. Therefore it is a strategic body to deal with European, multilateral and regional issues of Science, Technology and Innovation policies in and with the WBs. It acts moreover as an information exchange centre, clearing house for joint ideas and activities, and coordination forum for needs, suggestions and proposals of the WB6 to the European Commission, the EU Member States, candidate and potential candidate countries and the countries associated to Horizon 2020 and vice versa. In this spirit, the Platform continues and intensifies the progress achieved under the EU-Balkan Countries Action Plan on Science and Technology since 2006.
The last 21th Western Balkans Steering Platform on Research and Innovation was organised in Brussels on 23-24 September 2019, and the Conclusions are now publicly available.   Download and read the newsletter below.
