Launch of bilateral resarch cooperation programme
Objective: Enhanced research-based knowledge development in the Beneficiary States through enhanced research cooperation between Norway and the Beneficiary States
Investments in research and innovation are widely acknowledged as being a crucial driver for economic growth, for job-creation and to secure social and economic welfare. The research intensity in Hungary is still below the EU average as total research investments in relation to GDP.
The research programme places itself within overall strategies in Europe, like Europe 2020, the Flagship for Innovation and the coming research programme of the European Union, the Horizon 2020. The programme will increase high quality research cooperation across borders, and thus contribute to objectives of the European Research Area.
