By Gus @ 14:14 :: 3308 Views :: Public News

The European Commission has presented a Green Paper which proposes major changes to EU research and innovation funding to make participation easier, increase scientific and economic impact and provide better value for money. The changes, to be introduced in the next EU budget after 2013 (post-Framework Programme 7), would bring together the current Framework Programme for research, the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.

The Commission is seeking feedback on these proposed changes and on the specific questions set out in the Green Paper.
Feedback and views can be submitted via the special website
