ERA Progress Report 2016

01DESCRIPTION

The present ERA Progress Report 2016 summarises the state of play of ERA and the progress on ERA implementation over the period 2014-2016. For the first time progress on ERA has been measured for each country on each priority, on the basis of the ERA Monitoring Mechanism, a set of 24 core indicators jointly defined by Member States, research stakeholders and the Commission.

The report also provides a first insight into the development of the ERA priorities, their link to the ERA Roadmap 2015-2020 and the main areas targeted in the ERA National Action Plans. The table at the end of the document provides the growth rates on the headline indicators.

An accompanying Staff Working Document and the report 'Data gathering and information for the 2016 ERA monitoring' by Science-Metrix provides quantitative data on a set of indicators with additional policy relevant qualitative information.
