The joint statement urges the EU Institutions to make research, development and innovation (RD&I) a priority within the next Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 and calls on the Council of the EU to raise the budget allocated to the Horizon Europe programme to at least €120 billion, of which at least 60% should be dedicated to the “Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness” pillar.
This pillar is crucial to build long-term trust-based partnerships amongst a wide variety of European RD&I actors; to reduce risk and uncertainty and stimulate business investment in Europe; and to join forces at EU level to better face the great challenges of today and deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals.
