EUA responds to EC Communication on Global Approach to R&I
The European University Association (EUA) has published a reponse to the European Commission's Communication on a Global Approach to Research and Innovation. The EUA welcomes the Commission's goal to promote global research and innovation cooperation built on rules-based structures and common values. At the same time, the association stresses that universities are international actors in their own right and must be recognised as such. The EUA also points aout that it is central to recall that international cooperation in research and innovation is not just a foreign policy instrument but aimed at knowledge creation first and foremost.
