NZ and EU sign collaborative science agreement

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

New Zealand and the EU have signed a science agreement which will expand New Zealand's collaboration with the European science community. The New Zealand/European Union Science and Technology Cooperation (STC) agreement will allow New Zealand researchers to enter EU programmes to which they previously would not have had access, in areas including plant, animal and medical science. Negotiations thus far have allowed New Zealand to participate in the EU's international research staff exchange scheme, which supports collaborations between institutions based in Europe and other countries. The new STC Agreement will begin once full ratification has been completed by the EU, expected at the end of this year. A joint New Zealand/EU committee will then meet regularly to identify shared research priorities.
