How to Transform Big Data into Better Health: Envisioning a Health Big Data Ecosystem for Advancing Biomedical Research and Improving Health Outcomes in Europe
This report – which consolidates the outcomes of a two day workshop co-hosted with the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in November 2015 – identifies and acknowledges the challenges in transforming big data into better health and makes a number of key recommendations.Download resource
A position statement resulting from the 2023 High Level Workshop on 'Challenges to Reciprocity and Equitable Collaboration between Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean'. Hosted by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), The Ministry of Science, Innovation & Universities (MCIU), and Science Europe, under the auspices of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU.
Science Europe supports the scientific community in calling for caution and nuance in approaching the issue of phasing out the use of animals in research, and endorses statements by several stakeholders.
Researchers, research services, and other community members at Research Funding and Performing Organisations play a key role in establishing recognition systems through the research assessment processes that they implement. These recognition systems strongly contribute to determining what is understood as research quality and excellence. Based on the Science Europe Values Framework (published in July 2022), this paper provides practical recommendations and good practice examples detailing how research organisations can continuously improve the way they assess research and researchers. The recommendations help to embed our shared values and contribute to the evolution of research cultures in Europe.
On 22 February, Science Europe answered the European Commission’s consultation on the past, current, and future European R&I Framework Programmes. The response, developed in collaboration with the SE Working group on Horizon Europe reflects SE Member Organisations’ opinions and concerns regarding Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.
Science Europe Recommendations to Reduce Research and Innovation Disparities and Foster Brain Circulation
Substantial discrepancies exist between European R&I capacities, and these are at risk of increasing. Leveraging the potential of Europe's existing talent, developing new capacities, and optimising and spreading R&I benefits are more important than ever. This Science Europe report makes a number of recommendations to support this.
Science Europe launches a vision for science communication and commits to working with its member organisations to strengthen their capacity and to support their efforts to communicate research more effectively.
Science Europe launches a framework of shared values that serve as a guide to contribute to fostering a forward-looking research culture within the European Research Area, and globally.
The new statement on Research Culture envisages an ERA that focusses on the quality of research and its processes, supports scientific freedom, and promotes social diversity and inclusion, acknowledging that these conditions will, in turn, foster a productive research system.
Science Europe Position on the Involvement of Stakeholders in the ERA Governance
Science Europe calls on research funding and performing organisations to continuously evaluate their research assessment processes to ensure that they are effective, efficient, fair, and transparent.
