LERU publishes input on Horizon 2020 interim evaluation
The League of European Research Universities (LERU) has published its 'Interim Evaluation of Horizon 2020’ paper that will be officially launched in Brussels on 21 October 2016. The paper is LERU’s response to the European Commission's stakeholder consultation and makes recommendations to a wide range of aspects related to Horizon 2020.
For LERU it is crucial for the success of Horizon 2020 to protect the budget and to restore this budget to its initial state, undoing the EFSI-related cuts completely. LERU suggests to make the most popular call topics recurrent and to adopt a flexible approach regarding budget assignments, resulting in more budget for hugely oversubscribed call topics.
