Collaboration with North America and Canada
The DISCOVER project aims at supporting dialogues between Europe and North America (US and Canada) to foster cooperation in ICT Research & Innovation, both under Horizon 2020 and under US and Canada funding programmes. With this purpose, DISCOVERY proposes a new approach to engage more actively and strategically in supporting dialogues and partnership building for ICT R&I cooperation. At the core of the DISCOVERY action is the Transatlantic ICT Forum that will be established as a sustainable mechanism to support policy debate and to provide opinions and recommendations furthering meaningful dialogues for purpose-driven and mutually beneficial cooperation between Europe and North America in the field of ICT. DISCOVERY is specifically focused on key aspects that until now have not been properly addressed in the political dialogue, such as funding mechanisms, ICT policy and regulations, and cybersecurity, as well as ICT priority areas of strategic interest for future partnerships in R&I.
