EUA welcomes positions of Council and EP on Horizon Europe
The European University Association (EUA) has welcomed the positions on Horizon Europe recently adopted by the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament. EUA says it has closely followed the debate between and within the institutions and has provided advice to Commissioner Moedas, Members of the European Parliament and other EU high-level policymakers on a number of occasions. In June 2018, EUA released its analysis of the European Commission’s proposal for Horizon Europe and a joint statement with thirteen other pan-European university networks calling, amongst others, for increasing the budget of Horizon Europe to €160 billion and aligning EU policies for education, research and innovation. EUA now welcomes the fact that many of its recommendations were taken into account. EUA is planning to work now on more specific issues regarding Open Science, multidisciplinary and impact, while the Council, the EP and the Commission are preparing for the interinstitutional negotiations (trilogue), which are likely to start at the beginning of January 2019.
