Science Europe publishes contribution to FET Flagships discussion
With this policy brief Science Europe aims to contributing to the evaluation and development of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships under Horizon 2020 and the next Framework Programme for research and innovation (FP9).
Science Europe acknowledges that the FET Flagship instrument is a comprehensive co-ordinated European effort to create a unique model for cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral collaboration on a common theme. But FET Flagships have also limitations in their current implementation. Science Europe expresses concerns that should be addressed in order to give current and future Flagships the best conditions to achieve their mission.
