Transnational Lecture Series


Due to its geographic situation, Central Asia has evolved into a region of strategic interest, for China, Russia and the EU. This interest manifests in the sector of science, technology and innovation and is exemplified in the agreement on cooperation between the EU and Central Asia, which defines central sectors for cooperation, such as energy and water management. However, the states are facing numerous challenges regarding structure and implementation. According to George Bonas, these challenges also bear potentials for future cooperation as Central Asian states have a need for expertise in the STI sector. In this regard, he does not only focus on national and regional specifics of the STI-systems, but embeds them in the geopolitical framework and laments the deterioration of cooperation between the EU and Central Asia, despite the agreement.
