The European Commission proposes a Common Strategic Framework for EU research and innovation funding. The aim, as set out in the Green Paper, is to make participation easier, increase scientific and economic impact and improve value for money. Stakeholders have until 20 May 2011 to express their opinions.
The Commission is organising a Stakeholder meeting in Brussels to present and discuss the strategy. The meeting will be streamed live on the web in order to get the widest audience possible. The webcast will also be available after the conference.
A conference in Brussels on 10 June 2011 will wrap up the consultation. The input will be used for the development of the formal proposal for the Common Strategic Framework to be adopted by the Commission by the end of 2011.
