Admission of third-country nationals to carry out scientific research in the UE (Other Item Approved - Extract from Press Release on the Agriculture and Fisheries Council of 18 July)

July 20, 2005

Brussels, 19 Jul 2005

The Council adopted a recommendation to facilitate the issue by member states of uniform shortstay visas for researchers from third countries (3621/1/05).

The recommendation is aimed at consolidating the European research policy with a view to the achievement of the objectives of the Lisbon economic reform strategy.

The recommendation covers only the area of uniform visas issued for a total period of no more than three months and calls on member states to adopt measures facilitating the entry and movement of researchers who are nationals of third countries subject to a visa requirement under regulation no 539/2001.

The recommendation will be completed by two other texts: a directive establishing procedure for admitting third-country nationals for purposes of scientific research and a recommendation to facilitate the admission of third-country nationals to carry out scientific research in the EU.
