Cooperation with EECA countires in ICT in the Horizon 2020

International cooperation in ICT with EECA countries in the HORIZON2020 programme
EAST-HORIZON and EECA-2-HORIZON are two complementary projects funded by the European Commission under the ICT Programme of FP7. Together they form a Cluster whose aim is to develop strategic and mutually beneficial partnerships in ICT between the EU and the Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) countries and to assist ICT RTD&I policy dialogue, paving the path for EU-EECA successful strategic partnerships.

Both projects started in February 2014 and build upon the invaluable legacy in EU-EECA cooperation in ICT that was created by the PICTURE project (FP7-ICT CSA, completed in May, 2014) and its preceding EECA-ICT cluster that was formed by joining forces of FP7-ICT CSAs, namely: ISTOK-SOYUZ, SCUBE-ICT and EXTEND (completed in 2011).

The overall goal is to strengthen the links and boost cooperation among the research and industrial communities of both regions to exploit emerging opportunities for international partnerships (both under EU and EECA RTD&I programmes) and jointly address common societal challenges.
