New impetus and funded activities for the EU – Western Balkans R&I political cooperation and exchange up to the highest level

The Steering Platform on Research and Innovation for the Western Balkans (SP) is a well-known coordination forum that, since 2006, builds up on the progress achieved under the EU-Balkan Countries Action Plan on Science and Technology. Its main objective is to support the enhanced integration of the region in the European Research Area and it is therefore a key strategic body to deal with European, multilateral and regional issues of Science, Technology and Innovation policies in and with the Western Balkans.

In 2018 the European Commission presented the strategy 'A credible enlargement perspective for and enhanced EU engagement with the Western Balkans'  and, against this background, new impetus is now also given to the Steering Platform while new activities are being funded to support the socio-economic development of the Western Balkans, through the same service facility scheme funded by the European Commission, while also fostering regional cooperation and good neighbourly relations.

WBC-RTI.INFO platform and its connected newsletter service can directly benefit from this new stimulus. Both were indeed acknowledged as a stable reference point for dissemination of high-quality information on R&I relevant to WB economies, and were therefore included in the package. Find here some more in-depth information.
