The "Forum on University-based Research" is a
working group created under the initiative of Commissioner
Busquin in order to deepen the debate and the discussions
that started with the Commission Communication on “The
Role of the Universities in the Europe of Knowledge”
and the Conference “The Europe of Knowledge 2020:
a vision for University-Based Research and Innovation”
organised in Liège in April 2004.
This Forum is a High Level Group of experts whose main
objective is to help the European Commission in defining
an EU policy framework promoting the necessary changes and
reforms for universities in the context of building the
ERA and achieving the Lisbon and Barcelona objectives. The
Forum’s work could also feed the current debate on
the future Framework Programme.
The Forum is chaired by the European Commission who also ensures the secretariat of the group.
