Since 2011, the ICBSS participates in the implementation of the FP7 Project SEARCH - Sharing Knowledge Assets: Interregionally Cohesive Neighbourhoods, as partner to a Consortium of 17 partners. The main objective of the SEARCH Project is to strengthen the integration process between the EU and the Neighbourhood Countries (NCs) by focusing on the European Research Neighbourhood (ERN), improving at the same time the implementation of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), taking into account that "one size fits all" policy recommendations will not be appropriate due to the bilateral nature of the EU-ENP countries agreements. Among its main priorities, SEARCH focuses on the patterns of economic interaction between the EU and the ENP countries, aiming at projecting future trends and indentifying the effects of higher levels of economic integration to the growth, competitiveness and cohesion prospects of the two areas.

Within this framework, and acknowledging the need for improving the current business environment in the Black Sea region, the ICBSS is organising a Round Table Discussion on “EU and Black Sea Interregional Cooperation for Business and Economic Cohesion”  under the SEARCH Project. Themain objective of the event is to identify current challenges and perspectives and to elaborate relevant and valuable policy recommendations, in terms of improving economic cohesion between the EU and the Black Sea countries, with special emphasis on the role of businesses for achieving sustainable growth and competitiveness for the Black Sea countries and its peoples.
