The US-EU statement on R&D collaboration

In response to questions from Science|Business, US and EU officials sent this statement about a research-planning meeting they held October 12 in Brussels

For the first time in five years, senior US and EU officials met under a longstanding science diplomacy pact to plan new collaborations. This statement on the outcome was attributed to the two delegation leaders: Signe Ratso, EU research and innovation acting director-general, and Monica Medina, assistant secretary for oceans and international environmental and scientific affairs at the US Department of State.

"We also held a robust discussion regarding research security and integrity and focused on behaviours, policies, and norms. We agreed to continue to work through the G7 and would expand the conversation to other international partners through the recently launched multilateral dialogue on values and principles in international R&I collaboration, which will focus on values, best practices, information-sharing, means to encourage mutually beneficial international collaborations, and tools to assess and address risks."
