The Conference on Synergies in Research and Innovation Funding in Europe, to be organised by the Czech
Presidency of the Council of the EU, will take place from Thursday, 7 July to Friday, 8 July 2022 in Prague,
Czechia, as a lunch-to-lunch event. The conference shall be held as a physical event with the possibility of following the webstream from the conference online via the conference websites by those who will not be able to come to Prague due to the capacity and/or other reasons.

The conference will address the topic of synergies in research and innovation funding in its broad perspec-
tive. A lot of efforts have been already made by both the Member States and the European Commission to ex-
ploit the full potential of synergies to increase the research and innovation funding intensity within the EU.

This flagship conference will build on existing good practice examples and experience sharing, and also pro-
vide a high-level forum for debates on deficiencies in synergies settings and putting synergies into practice.

High-level representatives of the European Commission and the Member States will present their views and
discuss how to remove persisting barriers and facilitate synergies. The outcome of the conference and goals
for the future will be presented in the form of the “Prague Declaration on Synergies in Research and
Innovation Funding in Europe”.
