A key element of our cooperation is the development of closer scientific ties between Egypt and the European Research Area through increased Egyptian participation in Horizon 2020, the on-going EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. The cooperation between the European Union and Egypt in Science and Technology (S&T) is guided by:

 The EC-Egypt Agreement for Scientific and Technological Cooperation, Road Map - signed in 2005

 Horizon 2020: The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). It is also the most open research and innovation programme in the world, Open for collaboration with third country partners like Egypt.
