The new European Research Area: building capacity through dialogue

EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, during the European Research and Innovation Days in September 2020, stated that excellence and inclusiveness are two sides of the same coin in the new European Research Area (ERA). EUA welcomes the European Commission’s Communication “A new ERA for Research and Innovation” released on 30 September 2020 as a starting point to making this ambition a reality.


In this EUA position, the Association calls on the Commission and EU member states to build a comprehensive dialogue with universities and other R&I actors on the means and ends of the new ERA. It also reiterates its call to EU member states to ensure sustainable funding for R&I both at European and national levels.
