  • [01] Tsohatzopoulos signs EU-Israel deal on research programme

    10/06/2003 23:29:05

    Development Minister Akis Tsohatzopoulos, in his capacity as current president of the EU Council of Research and Technology Ministers, signed on Tuesday on behalf of the European Union an agreement between the EU and Israel on scientific and technological co-operation.

    The new agreement will cover Israeli participation from the outset of the 6th EU Research Framework Programme (2003-2006), and was signed for the Israeli side by Minister of Science Eliezer Zandberg, and by EU Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin on behalf of the Commission.

    On the basis of the agreement, Israel will contribute to the overall budget with 192 million euros. In the last five years, Israeli partners have participated in 612 EU-sponsored research projects, of which 147 were co-ordinated by Israeli project leaders.

    Israeli scientists have participated in EU-sponsored agricultural and water-management research projects with Arab partners, including the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.
