Furthering international research cooperation in a fragmented world

Furthering international research cooperation in a fragmented world

According to UNESCO, a quarter of all scientific publications are the result of international cooperation between researchers. This shows the importance of cross-border scientific collaboration.

Sometimes however, geopolitical factors get in the way and impact this cooperation. Nevertheless, policy can also be a strong driver of research collaboration across borders, as illustrated by the European Union’s Horizon programme. What can the EU do to promote scientific collaboration in an increasingly fragmented world?

The European Parliament’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA), in collaboration with the Science and Technology in Society forum (STS forum), addressed this issue at its event in May this year.
