European Union

This is a picture from last years IST 2006 Helsinki.

(8 October 2007) Universities and research institutions, companies, non-governmental organisations and individuals from across Europe and beyond have sent in more than 800 contributions to a public consultation on the future of the European Research Area.

While in-depth analysis of the responses is on-going, the main trend is clearly widespread support for the concept of a European Research Area (ERA) and its priorities, as outlined by the Commission in its Green Paper.

The responses also provide ideas on how to reinforce and extend the ERA. The consultation will continue at a high-level conference in Lisbon on 8-10 October. The Commission aims to come forward with proposals in specific areas in 2008.

Helge: EU has succeeded to embed innovation into a multiple layers of bureaucracy.
