Partnership Research

Partnership research with economic stakeholders

Partnership research activities are research activities carried out in partnership with business community shakeholders in response to a socio-economic need expressed by those players. The partnership by definition entails real financial participation on the part of the requesting players and their involvement in the “research” process can come through contributing to the development of the terms of reference, or even direct participation in the research carried out.

The definition of research used is that of R&D found in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU 28/02/2004 L 63/23).
