The Bilateral Agreement for S&T cooperation between the EC and the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT) was signed in 2004 and came into force in 2005. Within the framework of the Agreement, both sides endeavor to develop common principles and adequate framework conditions needed to create a level playing field for researchers from Mexico and the European Union to cooperate with each other on the basis of trust.

In 2015 Mexico signed a cooperation agreement with the European Research Council (ERC) to encourage top Mexican scientists to participate in research teams led by ERC grant holders.

In 2014 Mexico was the first partner country to create a complementary funding called CONACYT-Horizon 2020 for financing Mexican partners in successful projects of Horizon 2020. In this respect, Mexico will continue financing within budgetary possibilities, Mexican institutions and researchers participating in the Horizon Europe research programme.

The meeting marked the 5-year renewal of the EU-Mexico Agreement for Scientific and Technological Cooperation, which, since 2005, has played a key role for enhancing dialogue and cooperation between the two sides.
