Agriculture – Food Processing

Agriculture – Food Processing

Europe’s food and agriculture sectors play an important role in their domestic economies. Though agri-food is one of the trading sectors between EU and India, and there is high interest among EU businesses to expand in India, there is still a large trade deficit largely because of the high duties and tariffs of the protected Indian markets.

 
 
 
Research and Innovation
  • EU-India cooperation on research and innovation (R&I) is based on the Science and Technology Cooperation Agreement concluded in 2001 and since then several times renewed - the last time in 2016, until 2020. The S&T Agreement serves as a basis to identify areas of common interest for collaborative projects, mobility of scientists, joint workshops, sharing of advanced research facilities and exchange of information on policy matters underpinning the effective cooperation on research and innovation.
  • At EU level, cooperation on research and innovation is funded under the framework programme 'Horizon 2020' which is Open to the world and thus to participants from India.
