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:
