EC adopted proposal for a Pact for R&I

On 16 July 2021, the European Commission (EC) adopted its proposal for a Council Recommendation on “A Pact for Research and Innovation in Europe” to support the implementation of the European Research Area (ERA) policies.   According to the EC, this Pact aims to be the long-standing foundation for the EU’s commitment to the new ERA. This EC Pact proposal:
  • defines shared priority areas for joint action in order to support the ERA
  • sets out the ambition for investments and reforms
  • constitutes the basis for a simplified policy coordination and monitoring process at EU and Member States’ level through an ERA platform
  On 19 July 2021, at the EU Research Ministers’ Meeting the main topic of the agenda will be how to renew the ERA.   More information
