EUA presents policy input to upcoming EC Communication on a global approach to R&I, educationand youth
The European University Association (EUA) has published a policy paper as input to the upcoming European Commission Communication on a global approach to research, education, innovation and youth. The EC Communication is expected to be presented in April, and is intended to give direction to the EU’s international academic collaborations, in the context of the new generation of EU funding programmes such as Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ and association negotiations for third countries.
In the light of the changed geopolitical context, the EUA input paper welcomes the preparation of the Communication, which will speak broadly to the spectrum of university missions. Furthermore, the paper states that EUA seeks to ensure that academic cooperation is part of the evolving concept of open strategic autonomy of the EU. The policy input was developed by the members of the EUA European Global Strategy Response Group and approved by the EUA Council.
