We are excited to announce that we are actively participating in the Research Matters campaign, which was officially launched on 13 May across Europe.

Back to overview

Research and innovation serve as the cornerstone of societal progress. With a clear call for increased investment in research and development – aiming for over 3% of GDP within the European Union and across all European countries – and advocating for a doubling of the budget for the EU’s next research program, FP10, the Research Matters campaign aims to nurture innovation, sustainability, and competitiveness across various sectors.

This campaign is an initiative led by the European Association of Communication Professionals in Higher Education (EUPRIO). It brings together a coalition of partners committed to advancing research & innovation:

  • Coimbra Group
  • EASSH: European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities
  • European University Association
  • EuroTech Universities Alliance
  • The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities
  • LERU: League of European Research Universities
  • Science Europe
  • UnILiON: Universities Informal Liaison Offices Network
  • University of Bergen

Since our establishment in 1990, we have been a constructive partner in the development of successive cycles of the EU funding programmes. Our latest paper on this subject ‘Towards next framework programme for research & innovation 2028-2034 (‘FP10’)’ present six key design considerations for FP10:

  1. engage the full knowledge value chain along the research continuum
  2. put researchers and innovators in the driving seat through open and competitive calls
  3. ensure predictable and stable conditions
  4. unleash synergies
  5. reinforce excellence and boost widening in the context of EU-30+
  6. leverage a continent-wide approach to contribute to global leadership

The time to act is now! Visit the website of the campaign to help spread the message.
