The new BILAT USA 4.0 project continues activities started by the predecessor project BILAT USA 2.0 with the overall aim to enhance, support and further develop the research and innovation cooperation between the European Union and the United States of America. 

A particular focus of the project activities will be put among others on an intensification of interactions between EU and US researchers and innovators, the support for the improvement of research and innovation framework conditions, the provision of analyses delivering a sound base for decision making and an enhanced coordination and synergies between different EU MS/AC and US policies and programmes.

BILAT USA 4.0 has 16 partners, six from the USA and ten from Europe. They represent a well-balanced mix of competencies, expertise and access to relevant stakeholder networks across the EU and USA. Partners are national funding organisations, research management agencies, multipliers, think tanks, research institutions and research and innovation consultancies.
