Science Europe, the Academy of Finland, and the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture are organising the 11th annual High Level Workshop on the European Research Area (ERA) in Helsinki on 10 and 11 September 2019.
Science Europe congratulates Professor Mauro Ferrari on his appointment as the next President of the European Research Council (ERC) and wishes him all the best in this future role.
Released in partnership with the All European Academies (ALLEA) and the European University Association (EUA), this joint statement reinforces Science Europe’s resolve to work together with its partners to uphold academic freedom and institutional autonomy, absolutely essential principles for the conducting of high-quality research in Europe.
The success of the European Research Council (ERC) relies on its autonomy and on the impeccable management of its administrative wing, the Executive Agency (ERCEA). Pablo Amor, Director of the ERCEA, has stood as a staunch guarantor for both over the past eight years.
CESAER, EUA, LERU, and Science Europe release this joint statement calling on European policy makers to provide new momentum for the European Research Area (ERA). The ERA is a treaty obligation of the European Union and today, more than ever, greater commitment to research is needed to tackle the challenges that Europe faces. By strengthening the ERA, and increasing funding for research, European policy makers would be giving Europe the resources it needs to embark on another 60 years of peace and prosperity.
This position statement highlights the added value of Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) as perceived by Science Europe Member Organisations, and makes two recommendations on the future of joint programming: one with regards to the evaluation of JPIs, and a second one concerning their governance. The aim is to stimulate other stakeholders – including the European Commission – to join in this discussion.
The Roadmap, approved by the Science Europe General Assembly in November 2013, is Science Europe’s action plan to contribute to the elements of a successful research system. It acts as a framework for voluntary collective activity, providing a long-term strategy for the association. The ‘Priority Action Areas’ are those in which Science Europe members believe that there is a potential to achieve tangible and substantive progress, and where they can add real value by working together.
