New research and development institution becomes Moldova’s key partner for research and innovation cooperation with the EU

August 3, 2018

The newly restructured National Agency for Research and Development of Moldova (NARD) will become the focal point for cooperation between the country’s researchers and their counterparts in EU countries.

NARD is to replace the Centre for International Projects (CIP), which was previously Moldova’s main partner of the EU-funded Eastern Partnership PLUS (EaP PLUS) project, which is designed to stimulate cooperation between researchers from the Eastern Partner countries and EU Member States.

The creation of the NARD in March 2018 was a result of research and development reforms currently ongoing in Moldova. NARD is also a national coordinator of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 programme.

The EaP PLUS project aims to stimulate cooperation between researchers from the Eastern Partner countries and EU Member States and enhance the active participation of the Eastern Neighbourhood countries in the Horizon 2020 framework programme.
