A “Workshop for the Participation of Non-EU Black Sea and EaP Countries in Thematic COFUND ERANETs & JPIs” took place on 13-14 October 2016, in Baku, Azerbaijan at the Baku Hilton Hotel.


The meeting was organized by the Centre for Regional & International STI Studies & Support – CeRISS (Greece) and the Science Development Foundation under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

This is an important workshop in view of Association of Black Sea/EaP countries to H2020. It functioned both as an informative meeting for ERANET/JPI schemes, as well as a networking event with EU M/S funding agencies in view of increasing the participation of Black Sea/EaP Countries in ongoing or forthcoming co-funding schemes.

Representatives of ERANETs and JPIs shared their experience with funding agencies from the Black Sea and EaP countries and discussed on modalities for participation; stages in the development of an ERA-NET/JPI that a country can be involved; necessary commitments for participation; assessment of perspectives for participation. 

The event took place as part of the Black Sea Horizon and IncoNet EaP projects.
