Joint action plan 2007
Joint Action Plan 2007

  • To remember…

    • Joint Action Plan accompanied the “White Paper on overlaps, gaps and opportunities in view of the extension of bilateral RTD programmes and initiatives towards multilateral approaches”

    • White Paper and Joint Action Plan were finalised as a deliverable of SEE-ERA.NET in August 2007 and have been promoted extensively

    • While the White Paper is designed as a policy paper, the Joint Action Plan has to be understood as a working paper reflecting the current situation and proposing respective actual measures
