From Vision to Action: What EUA proposes for the Next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9)

In late 2017, as the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 draws to a close and the debate on the next Framework Programme (FP9) is in full swing, EUA further defines its vision developed the previous year by providing a reflection on each thematic area and putting forward specific recommendations for the design of FP9 rules and participation criteria.


EUA’s recommendations build on the Association’s Vision for FP9, its proposals for “Ambitious funding for excellent research in Europe post-2020”, the member consultation on the Horizon 2020 mid-term review, the campaign for “EU funding for universities”, and the Association’s ongoing work on Open Science and Smart Specialisation. They were prepared in consultation with EUA’s Research Policy Working Group and the EUA Council. EUA’s recommendations also echo several of the ideas presented in the European Commission’s report LAB-FAB-APP Investing in the European Future We Want (the “Lamy” report).
