ANALYZING REPORT ON CONSULTATION PROCESS WITH FUNDERS AND POLICYMAKERS
The Project BILAT USA 4.0 continues activities started by the predecessor project BILAT USA 2.0, with the overall aim to enhance, support and further develop the research and innovation cooperation between the European Union and the United States of America. One focus of the BILAT Project is strategic priority setting for EU-US cooperation through identifying emerging STI fields with a high benefit and added value from cooperation. By analyzing a consultation with funders and policy-makers through 51 interviews and surveys, this report aims to identify new thematic areas for expanded EU-US STI cooperation. These areas will be further explored and vetted first through a follow-up consultation with top researchers, and then through a series of thematic workshops bringing together researchers, funders, and policy-makers.
