EUA welcomes proposed new European Commission
The European University Association (EUA) has welcomed the list of Commissioners-designate and the portfolios of the van der Leyen Commission that was published on 10 September 2019. The EUA says they "point to a fresh and ambitious approach for the next five years" and particularly welcomes the fact that digital transformation and the climate crisis are dealt with at vice-president level. The EUA also welcomes the fact that research, innovation and education are now all part of the portfolio of Ms Mariya Gabriel, the Commissioner-designate for Innovation and Youth, as it expects that thus the three parts of the knowledge triangle will be better connected.
