Date: Monday 21 June 2021, 12:30 - 14:00

Location: Virtual meeting (TBC)

Organisation: NorCore

The EU presented this spring a new strategy for global cooperation within research and innovation. Global cooperation was an important topic in both the EEA and ERA communications from 2020, and both Erasmus+ and Horizon Europe have important global components, and some new elements from 2021.

Since Norway will participate in these programmes, it is important to identify how we can contribute to increase Norwegian participation in the global EU cooperation, as well as to advance synergies (while at the same time avoiding unnecessary overlaps) with national schemes for global knowledge-related cooperation.
