EU-US Implementing Arrangement


Thanks to an Implementing Arrangement concluded on the 17 of October between the European Commission and the US Government, European and American researchers will be able to work together more closely on projects funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s research and innovation programme.

The Arrangement facilitates cooperation between US organisations and Horizon 2020 participants in cases where the US organisations are funded by the US and do not receive any funding from the Horizon 2020 programme. It enables researchers to organise their cooperation outside the formal Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement, in accordance with applicable laws, rules, policies, and regulations of their respective funding programmes.
