Steering Platform

The Steering Platform on Research, established in 2006, facilitates the interaction between the Western Balkan Countries, the EU member states, the candidate and potential candidates 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 Western Balkans (WB) in the European Research Area. It is a strategic body to deal with European, multilateral and regional issues of Science and Technology policies in and with the WB. It acts as an information exchange centre, clearing house for joint ideas and activities, and coordination forum for needs, suggestions and proposals of the WB to the European Commission, the EU27, candidate and potential candidates and the countries associated to Framework Programs and vice versa.
