Presidency Events on ERA


As with Horizon Europe, also with regard to ERA, numerous events in Austria supplemented the negotiations on the ERA Conclusions at EU level. ERAC, ESFRI, Open Science, Joint Programming and many other fora discussed ERA-related topics during the Austrian Council Presidency. A special field which is also – but not only – linked to ERA is higher education. With a grand total of five events at the interface between higher education and research, the Austrian Presidency underlined the willingness to cooperate better between these policy fields under the reform agenda.

In this section you can find links to all Austrian Presidency events that focussed on ERA Governance, as well as the documentation of the outcome of these events.
