ARCHIVE: EU and international science: Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation of member countries committed to democracy and market economy. OECD helps governments tackle the economic, social and environmental challenges of a globalised economy. It also researches social changes or evolving patterns in trade, environment, agriculture and technology amongst other areas. The UK is a member of the OECD.
OECD Co-operative Research Programme (CRP)
Twenty-six OECD Member countries (including the UK) participate in the OECD’s Co-operative Research Programme (CRP). Defra supports the CRP, an annual Postdoctoral fellowship programme that offers scientists working in UK laboratories the opportunity to undertake co-operative research in other OECD countries. The research fellowships can be from 6-26 weeks in duration. The programme also funds international workshops. The Programme covers three main research areas (i) the natural resource challenge; (ii) sustainability in practice; and (iii) the food chain.
