08: European strategies for international research cooperation

-
Alpbacher Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Private and public actors in the field of science and technology have developed different strategies to meet the challenges of international competition. It is mainly through international cooperation and joint programmes that responses can be found to some of the challenges of globalisation which cannot be tackled by individual countries acting alone. On the other hand international research cooperations are often a result of foreign policy issues and national priorities.
These and other changes, as e.g. recent developments in the university sector, urge for the development of strategic instruments and the most effective funding schemes to optimize the conditions for innovative research that will be discussed in this working group.
