Tunisia plans to sign an agreement associating it to Horizon 2020

Following a recent meeting with the Tunisian Prime Minister, Habib Essid, Carlos Moedas, EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, has confirmed that Tunisia plans to sign an agreement associating it to Horizon 2020.

The agreement, which will enable Tunisian organisations to participate in the programme on an equal basis with EU entities, is expected to be signed by the end of 2015 and will make Tunisia the first Arab country ever associated to the EU’s Framework Programme.
