EC invites participation in public consultation on Art. 185 Initiatives
The European Commission is currently running a public consultation on Art. 185 Initiatives and is inviting interested parties to participate. The survey opened on 27 January and will close on 30 April 2017. The objective of the consultation is to collect information from a wide audience on different aspects of the design and implementation of the Art.185 Initiatives operating under Horizon 2020 or FP7.
The Member States of the European Union and many other countries have been investing heavily in Public-Public Partnerships. Data shows that they finance around 1,000 transnational research projects, with a strong Union support from Horizon 2020. The Commission now seeks the views of stakeholders and the broader public on the Joint Programmes between Member States on the basis of Art.185. The Commission attaches great importance to this consultation, the outcome of which will be important to shape the future of Joint Programming in Europe and the role of Joint Programmes in the next Framework Programme.
