EUA urges for an EU funding for research and innovation in Europe post-2020


EUA has published a position paper advocating for ambitious EU funding for research and innovation (R&I) in Europe post-2020. It contributes to the upcoming discussion on the EU´s Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9).

The position paper embodies the sector’s views on the topic shaped by the Horizon 2020 mid-term review, the EUA Vision for FP9 and consultations of EUA’s Research Policy Working Group and its Expert Group on Regional Strategies for Smart Specialisation. 

The paper reiterates the strategic importance of fostering a united and prosperous knowledge-based society in Europe, which needs  to remain a high  priority despite the uncertain political and economic context. In this spirit, the Association puts forward several funding scenarios to support significantly more excellent research and innovation proposals. 

Despite its high-impact on society and economy, Horizon 2020 is significantly underfunded.Therefore EUA advocates for a quantitative and qualitative increase in EU research funding, and suggests to open a discussion on a possible ring-fencing or shift of funding from ESIF or other sources for a more ambitious and well-functioning research programme. 

The paper is part of the EUA’s broader campaign to promote sufficient, sustainable and simple funding for R&I in Europe. The Association has continuously provided strategic input to the key EU players in the Horizon 2020 mid-term review process. EUA’s views were featured most recently at an important event co-organised by the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). On this occasion, the Commission released the results of its stakeholder consultation. The EESC also presented its views on the topic. Both reports reflect the points put forward by EUA on behalf of Europe’s universities. EUA is also running a series of activities with other partners, including the joint campaign “Making European research stronger,” launched on 23 April with EARMA, EASS, LERU, the Coimbra Group, the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities and The Leiden Group. Through its funding campaign, advocacy activities and joint efforts with partner associations in Brussels, EUA is actively shaping the debate on the mid-term review of Horizon 2020 and its post-2020 successor.
