Progress report 2014 : accompanied by facts and figures 2014
The European Research Area (ERA) Progress Report 2014 updates last year's overview of the state of play in ERA. It presents individual country reports that give a snapshot of the implementation of ERA actions at national level, notably by research funding and research performing organisations. The report indicates that the conditions for achieving ERA, where researchers and scientific knowledge can circulate freely, are in place at European level.

Moving towards a greener economy while keeping the quality of development sustainable is a major challenge. This entails, among other factors, good policy-making, changes in societal and individual lifestyles, ethical consumerism and good research to understand all of the factors at play.
Today, economic development, growing populations and increasing degradation of the environment all make sustainable exploitation of resources a priority, and no resource is more fundamental to our well-being than water.
