- emphasising the importance of ensuring that Europeans have the right skills, in the light of new technological revolutions, as well as the significant role of R&I policy in reinforcing companies’ productivity, resulting in jobs and value creation, in a sustainable way.
- paving the way towards R&I delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals and mainstreaming them into EU policies and initiatives that will contribute to a fair, climate-neutral and digital Europe.
Particularly, the report presents 11 policy recommendations, which are grouped around 3 pillars, aiming at supporting citizens, planet and prosperity: R&I for a safe and just space for humanity, for global leadership and for economic and societal impact.
