BILAT-RUS-Advanced (completed October 2015)

Within the BILAT-RUS-Advanced project, 16 partners from both EU member states and Russia collaborated to enhance the bilateral science, technology and innovation (STI) partnership between the Russian Federation and the EU Member States/Associated Countries (MS/AC). The project was coordinated by the DLR Project Management Agency, which is part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and financed within the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme.

The project was entrusted with the coordination of activities within the 'EU-Russia Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2014'. This year long series of joint events celebrated the vibrant science and research cooperation between the EU, its Member States and the Russian Federation - despite the challenging political situation. Furthermore the project has organised information days, brokerage events and prepared guides and (input) reports.

BILAT-RUS-Advanced started in November 2012 and ended in October 2015.

Main outcomes of the project are accessible on this page below and here.
