BILAT USA 2.0 is a project funded by the European Union under FP7. It is a bilateral coordination activity to enhance and develop science, technology and innovation partnerships between the European Union and the United States of America. BILAT-USA 2.0 has three main goals:

  • support the political dialogue within the framework of the EU-US STI cooperation agreement
  • enhance the cooperation between scientists and innovation actors on both sides and spread information on funding possibilities through a number of workshops & events
  • analyze the state-of-the-art and the progress of transatlantic science and technology cooperation.

In March 2013, the EU-US Joint STI Committee Meeting determined four research areas as priorities for transatlantic cooperation: Marine & Arctic Research, NMP, Health and Transport.
