Science Europe Calls for Balanced Implementation of Do No Significant Harm Principle

Science Europe, along with the European University Association (EUA) and the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER), supports the environmental goals set by the EU's sustainable finance taxonomy regulation. However, Science Europe calls for caution regarding the broad application of the Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) principle to all projects under European research and innovation (R&I) framework programmes, including Horizon Europe. 


Spotlight on Science Communication

In 2023, Science Europe continues working with its Member Organisations to reinforce the collective capacity to communicate research more effectively and to enhance the communication of science to society. Science Communication emerged as a new priority area in itself in the framework of Science Europe’s Strategy Plan 2021–2026. 


The R&I Framework Programme We Want for Europe

Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe have been crucial instruments to boost European scientific excellence and collaboration, and to further develop the European Research Area (ERA).

Horizon Europe’s budget must be protected from any reduction or redirection. Its successor’s budget should be increased.

These are among the key messages of Science Europe's response to the Public Consultation on Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.
