Welcome to the website of the European Research Area Board – ERAB
Making the European Research Area (ERA) a reality is a political priority for the European Union (EU). Following the public debate on its Green Paper The European Research Area: New Perspectives, the European Commission established the European Research Area Board (ERAB) as a consultative body responsible for advising the EU on the realisation of the ERA (Commission Decision establishing the European Research Area Board - December 2007).
ERAB plays a key role in helping to develop, promote and evaluate policy initiatives and actions to meet the goals of the European Research Area. It offers advice of the highest quality, assessing progress achieved and guiding the Commission on how to mobilise people in support of shared European ambitions for science and research.
ERAB consist of 22 high level experts from academia, business and industry. Their expertise and experience builds on the many valuable contributions made by its predecessor, the European Research Advisory Board (EURAB).
