The Commission has signed agreements for closer cooperation in research and innovation with the Western Balkans – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia – as well as with Georgia and Israel. For the period 2021-2027, they have been granted association status to Horizon Europe, Europe’s €95.5 billion research and innovation programme.

Researchers, innovators and research entities established in these countries can now participate, under the same conditions as entities from the EU Member States. 

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said: “I am very pleased that we have moved forward with our association agreements with many more partners. Association to Horizon Europe is of mutual benefit, for the EU and for our partners, enabling tighter cooperation to boost our green and digital agendas, as well as to attract investment in research and innovation and create jobs and growth.”
