Petition launched for an increased EU research & innovation budget

The Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE) and EuroScience have launched a petition to increase the European Union Research & Innovation budget above that proposed for Horizon Europe, the upcoming European Research and Innovation Programme for the period from 2021 to 2027. 

The petition was proposed at the EuroScience Open Forum 2018 (ESOF2018) in Toulouse to urge the European Commission, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament that additional steps are required for Europe as a whole.

Although ISE and EuroScience welcome the European Commission proposal under the leadership of Commissioner Carlos Moedas for Horizon Europe, they believe that in light of growing geopolitical challenges, further funding for Research and Innovation is needed.
