Research organisations manifesto calls for substantial budget increase for EU RTI
In the context of the preparation of the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), the EU's next seven-year-budget, a group of organisations has issued a manifesto calling for a modern and competitive 2021-2027 EU budget. Helmholtz, CSIC, CNR, CNRS and Leibniz Association promote the manifesto and call on individuals and corporate representatives to endorse it.
The promoters state that Horizon 2020 has been underfunded to fulfill its high ambition and targets, so the Manifesto calls for recognising research and research-based innovation as the main drivers of EU competitiveness and growth. They see the discussion on the forthcoming MFF as a significant political challenge as well as a unique occasion for EU Member States to agree on adequate funding with a substantial increase of the present budget allocation for research and innovation.
