International cooperation between EU and non-EU countries is an important aspect of FP7 and is an integral part of Theme 6 on Environment (including climate change) International cooperation is implemented in Theme 6 via two mechanisms:

Opening up all research activities to researchers and research organizations from third countries. Moreover, several topics in the Work Programme, where mutual benefit is envisaged, specifically encourage participation of third countries participants.

Specific International Cooperation Actions (SICA). SICA projects, where third country participation is a requirement, aim to generate, share and apply knowledge through research partnerships with third countries in selected areas, where mutual interest and benefit from such actions is known to exist.

This Brokerage Event is organized in the framework of the FP7 IncoNet EECA project. The objective of the event is to bring together EU and EECA researchers and other stakeholders, and provide ground for discussion and networking within the scope of the Environment (including climate change) Theme.
