International Cooperation in Research and Innovation

International cooperation in research and innovation is possible thanks to Horizon 2020, the new Framework programme of the European Union. The European Union is a world leader in research and innovation. With the 7% of the world's population, it accounts for 24% of the world expenditure on research, 32% of the high impact publications and 32% of the patent applications. Horizon 2020 is the most open research and innovation programme in the world. Researchers from all over the globe can be part of Horizon 2020.
