Research, Innovation and Science

Speech at the discharge hearing before the EP Committee on Budgetary Control

"We will be able to propose more radically simplified rules and procedures in the next research and innovation funding programme, on the basis of our proposed revision of the Financial Regulation, taking into account the proposals contained in the Carvalho report. We will need the support of the institutions, including the Parliament, to make this happen."
