Multilateral dialogue on principles and values for international cooperation in research & innovation

15 - 16 February 2024. Brussels. Multilateral dialogue on principles and values for international
cooperation in research & innovation

In May 2021, the European Commission published a Communication the 'Global Approach to Research and Innovation',setting out a new approach for global engagement. Our policy and funding programme are open to the world. 

Following the endorsement at European level of the Marseille Declaration 2022, a series of dialogue workshops has been organised in 2022 and 2023 with international partner countries and with stakeholder organisations. The topics discussed are freedom of academic and scientific research, research ethics and integrity; research excellence, gender equality and inclusiveness; open science; research security, knowledge valorisation, equitable partnerships with low- and middle-income countries.

The meeting’s outcome is important in terms of political mandate and of global support and direction for future actions in guiding research relationships (researchers and innovators , research funding and research policy actors) in a changing world. It will call for the joint development of a longer-term roadmap for implementing the dialogue and for upholding in practice common principles and values enabling responsible international research and innovation cooperation, including coordination and synergies with the work done by other international organisations and in other fora.
