EU and Russia strengthen research ties in nanotechnology

News) Russian scientists have been collaborating with their colleagues from the EU for decades. In 2005, EU-Russia scientific cooperation was given a boost when EU Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik and his Russian counterpart, Andrei Fursenko, agreed to work towards a common EU-Russian vision for research.

'From 2008, scientific research will be supported by two large scale programmes,' she told CORDIS News. The first will support research and development activities in five priority areas. Around 40% of the funds have been allocated to the field of new materials and nanotechnologies, while 25% will go to the life sciences and biotechnology. The remaining funds are set to be split between the thematic areas of energy and energy efficiency, rational nature use and information and communication technologies (ICTs).
