Seize our common future

Fifteen university associations join together to call for an ambitious long-term EU budget for research, innovation and education to boost efforts to solve the manifold future challenges.


This common statement is the result of a broad campaign to “Seize our common future” and urges EU policy makers to strengthen the R&I investment and to specifically raise the budget of the next EU Programme for R&I (2021-2027), Horizon Europe, to at least €120 billion (2018 prices).

The document represents the voices of more than 800 European universities. It is also signed by more than 300 individual higher education institutions, research centres and other organisations.
