Germany adopts national ERA Strategy
The German Federal Government is determined to secure the country's good position in the European Research Area (ERA) and to contribute to actively promoting steps to strengthen the ERA at national and European level. This will be done in cooperation with the various stakeholders and by implementing concrete measures. The ERA Strategy paper consists of guiding principles and a national roadmap for the next years. The Federal Government has established a division in the responsible ministry (BMBF) to deal specifically with matters of the European Research Area. It has also created a special budget line as an effective incentive mechanism to Europeanise its funding programmes. The status of the implementation of the strategy will be evaluated before the end of the current legislative period.
