CBE PARTICIPATED AT THE APPEAL “MORE INVESTMENTS IN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION IN THE NEXT EU FINANCIAL REPORT”
More investments in Research and Innovation in the next EU Financial Report
In view of determining the financial dote of the European Union for the new Program for Research and Innovation Horizon Europe, in the setting of the negotiation of the multi-year financial outline 2021-2027, an extended delegation of the italian system in the field agreed about the importance of promoting an ambitious and appropriate for the european challenges financial dote for R&I. Considering the central role covered by R&I for growth and competition, the european institutions are invited to put the action about research and innovation at the centre of the next UE political agenda. In that sense, it’s crucial to have a financial dote for Horizon Europe of at least 120 billion euros, in line with the position already expressed by the European Parliament. The investments in Research and Innovation (R&I) positively influence economic growth, productivity and employment. Committing public resources to R&I means to reinforce the scientific and economic basis in Italy and Europe to promote global competitiveness. The European R&I Program represents for Italy an important instrument to valorize the excellence of italian research on an international scale, reinforce the heritage of skills and incentive the development of international politics and priorities.
