Vienna Memorandum on The Western Balkan Countries in Future European RTD Activities

This Memorandum is based on the results of the Vienna Workshop "Future Perspectives of International Research and Technology Co-operation".
This workshop was focussed on the future role – both the opportunities and the challenges – of the non-candidate South Eastern European countries – shortly called the Western Balkan countries – within the envisaged European Research Area and the future research and technology activities of the European Union, in particular the Sixth EU Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration (FP6). The basic assumptions of the Vienna Workshop were, that the Western Balkan countries will play an important role in the future development of Europe, and research and technology co-operation will be essential for a sound and sustainable social and economic development.
This Mamorandum focuses on the role of the target countries in FP6 but reference are made to made to other policy instruments as well.
