The EUROHORCs and ESF Vision on a Globally Competitive ERA (Update)


The Heads of European Research Councils (EUROHORCs) and the European Science Foundation (ESF) have decided to create a joint Task Force to design a Road Map to excellence in science in Europe. The reason for this decision is that they wish to play an active role in shaping a European Research Area of Excellence.

The EUROHORCs Assembly and the ESF Governing Council approved a Vision statement on the goals to be reached in the next 5-10 years in order to build a globally competitive ERA. This Vision statement was complemented by an outline of a Road Map for concrete actions by EUROHORCs and ESF member organisations as well as partners, to help building such an ERA.
