The present summary of conclusions and recommendations is the result of analytical work carried out by the SCOPE-EAST project consortium and intense discussions and consultations with researchers, representatives of research and funding organisations and policy stakeholders of EU-Member States, Associated States, Russia, Ukraine and the EU-Commission.
