Towards the 9th Framework Programme: EUA Assesses EU Competitiveness Council Conclusions

The European University Association (EUA) welcomes the conclusions drawn by the EU Competitiveness Council on 1 December 2017. The Association is pleased with its forceful commitment to the next Framework Programme (FP9) and a strong European Research Area (ERA).


There are broad areas of consensus between the Council proposals and the EUA position on FP9 published in November 2017. The Association, however, would like to highlight a number of matters that must be addressed to ensure that FP9 becomes a powerful successor of Horizon 2020.
