EU signs agreement with the US to foster research cooperation

The European Commission and the US Government are signing an agreement on 17 October 2016 which will enable European and American researchers to work together more closely on projects funded under Horizon 2020.

The agreement facilitates cooperation between US organisations and Horizon 2020 participants in cases where the US organisations are funded by the US and do not receive any funding from the Horizon 2020 programme. It simplifies cooperation between a selected Horizon 2020 project and a US entity by enabling researchers to organise their cooperation outside the formal Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement signed for each project, in accordance with applicable laws, rules, policies, and regulations of their respective funding programmes.
