Strengthening Scientific Cooperation Between European Commission and Slovenia

On 28 February 2017, the European Commission´s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science and Sport signed a Memorandum of Understanding to boost cooperation and scientific excellence. The Memorandum envisages strengthening the activities in the framework of EU’s macro regional strategies for the Danube, Alpine, and Adriatic–Ionian regions, as well as a particular focus on implementing and monitoring the Smart Specialisation Strategy.

The Memorandum opens new avenues for scientific exchange and synergies in the fields of energy, transport, public health, security, climate change, digital transformation, and biotechnology, among others. Another emphasis of the future joint scientific work is expected to be in the field of sustainability and resources, with a specific focus on marine and freshwater research, agriculture, forests, and raw materials.
