June 12, 2006

Brussels, 09 Jun 2006

The European Commission has decided to support Ukraine&rsquo;s request to join EUREKA, a pan-European network for market-oriented, industrial research and development. Its aim is to reinforce Europe&rsquo;s competitiveness by promoting collaborative projects which address market needs. EUREKA is open to all European countries which accept the terms of the Declaration of Principles, set out when EUREKA was established. The Conference of Ministers must then give the green light to the accession, after which a Memorandum of Understanding is signed. The European Commission, which represents the EU in EUREKA, has therefore signalled its intention to support Ukraine&rsquo;s membership at the Conference of Ministers.
