Russia has also been the most successful non-associated third country in the recent Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. The BILAT-RUS-Advance project focuses on enhancing the bilateral science-, technology and innovation (STI) partnership between the Russian Federation and the EU Member States/Associated Countries.
