Project Description

The BILAT USA 4.0 project, funded by the European Union, has started on 1 February 2016. The overall aim of the project is to strengthen and further develop the research and innovation cooperation between the European Union and the United States of America. It continues and enhances activities already started by the predecessor project BILAT USA 2.0.

A particular focus of BILAT USA 4.0 is on a strategic level [a] to support the policy dialogue between the EU and the USA and [b] to analyse progress of transatlantic science and technology cooperation. On a practical level the project aims to enhance partnerships between researchers through thematic events on funding opportunities in the EU as well as the US and thus strengthening the quality and quantity of partnerships between researchers and scientists on both sides.
