This report is a product of the BILAT USA 4.0 project, funded by the European Union, which started on 1 February 2016. BILAT USA 4.0 continues activities started by the predecessor projects BILAT USA and BILAT USA 2.0 with the aim to enhance and develop science, technology, and innovation (STI) partnerships between the U.S. and Europe. A particular focus of the project activities will be put on an intensification of interactions between EU and US researchers and innovators, the support for the improvement of research and innovation framework conditions, the provision of analyses delivering a sound base for political decision making and an enhanced coordination and synergies between different European and US policies and programmes. Detailed information can be found on our website: http://www.euussciencetechnology.eu/
The report provides a short overview of some of the key cooperation patterns between the USA and Europe in research and innovation. It serves as a baseline for the activities of the project BILAT USA 4.0 which relate to the support of established research priorities and outlines several analytical steps that will support the further definition and discussion of these priorities throughout the lifetime of the project. The report provides a basis on the activities to further stimulate research actors from EU and the US towards increased and deeper research cooperation. The following areas are selected priorities for those stimulation activities:
 HEALTH RESEARCH
 MARINE AND ARCTIC RESEARCH
 NMP (NANOTECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES)
 TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH
