Israel joins key EU research programme

EU and Israeli officials shake hands during an agreement signing ceremony at Prime Minister's office in Jerusalem, June 8, 2014Israel on Sunday signed a key European-funded scientific research programme despite guidelines barring funding to settlement-linked projects, officials said. The signing of the Horizon 2020 agreement took place at a ceremony in Jerusalem presided over by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and outgoing European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso. Under terms of the agreement, Israel will have the same access to the programme as EU member states,” the European Commission said. Signing the deal, which makes Israel the only non-European country to benefit from the programme, was made possible after the sides reached a compromise over guidelines which bar all funding for entities operating on land seized during the 1967 Six Day War.
