    • PURPOSE: to extend the Agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between the European Union and the Government of the United States of America.

      PROPOSED ACT: Council Decision.

      ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: Council may adopt the act only if Parliament has given its consent to the act. 

      BACKGROUND: the Agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between the European Community and the Government of the United States of America was signed in Washington, DC, on 5 December 1997 and entered into force on 14 October 1998.

      The Agreement provides that the Agreement is concluded for an initial period of five years and may be extended thereafter, with possible amendments, for additional periods of five years, by mutual written agreement between the Parties.

      The Council successively approved, on three occasions, in 2003, 2008 and 2013, the extension of the Agreement for additional periods of five years. The Agreement is due to expire on 14 October 2018.

      The assessment carried out by the Commission services demonstrates that the Agreement provides an important framework for facilitating cooperation between the Union and the United States of America in common priority areas for science and technology, leading to mutual benefits. It is therefore in the Union’s interest to extend the Agreement for a new period of five years.

      Both Parties have confirmed their intention to extend the Agreement for an additional period of five years without any amendments to the Agreement.

      CONTENT: the Council draft seeks to approve, on behalf of the Union, the extension of the Agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between the European Community and the Government of the United States of America for an additional period of five years.

      • The Committee on Industry, Research and Energy adopted the report by Roland PAKSAS (EFDD, LT) on the draft Council decision concerning the extension of the Agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between the European Community and the Government of the United States of America.

        The committee recommended that the European Parliament give its consent to the extension of the Agreement.

        The Agreement for scientific and technological cooperation between the European Community and the Government of the United States of America was signed on 5 December 1997 and entered into force on 14 October 1998. Since then, it has been renewed three times, in 2003, 2008 and 2013.

        As recalled in the explanatory memorandum accompanying the recommendation, EU-US relations in the field of science, technology and innovation are stronger than with any other country outside Europe.

        The United States is by far the most active country in Horizon 2020 in terms of amounts of mutual investment in research and development (R&D), flows of scientists, volumes of cooperative activities and number of co-authored publications and patents.

        Global challenges require global joint solutions it is therefore important that the EU and the US work closely together to find them. Therefore, it is in the interest of the European Union to extend the Cooperation Agreement for a further period of five years.
