ERA Policy Agenda

02INTRODUCTION

Based on the Council recommendation on a Pact for R&I in Europe and the Council Conclusions on a new ERA governance, the Council establishes an ERA Policy Agenda for a period of three years. The first ERA Policy Agenda, for the 2022-2024 period, was adopted in the form of an Annex to the Council Conclusions on a new governance for the ERA, in November 2021.

The second ERA Policy Agenda for the years 2025-2027 is scheduled to be adopted in the form of a Council Recommendation in the course of the first semester 2025. This timing is due to the fact that the new European Commission will enter into office in autumn 2024. The new Commission is expected to reflect some of its policy objectives in the new ERA Policy Agenda.

The ERA Policy Agenda operationalises the Pact for R&I in Europe and should consist of ERA Actions with clear and actionable objectives and deliverables, to be implemented at both European and national level. .
