Neth-ER declaration: EU must invest in knowledge

10 januari 2018

Research, innovation and education should be core priorities for the next Multiannual Financial Framework, states Neth-ER, together with other organisations in the field of education, research and innovation in their declaration ‘Invest in knowledge’. Other organisations are encouraged to express their support for the declaration on the declaration’s website to increase its impact.

Knowledge must have priority in next MFF

Investing in research, innovation and education should be of paramount importance in the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) if Europe wants to meet its ambitious goals regarding smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Neth-ER, together with several other organisations in the field of education, research and innovation, calls for a modern budget to ensure that the successors to programmes such as Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ can continue to create lasting European added value and sustain economic growth in their declaration ‘Invest in knowledge’.

Commission and Member States should pursue similar ambitions

Furthermore, the declaration calls on the European Commission and Member States to articulate ambitions to increase the budget for knowledge programmes, support the prioritisation of knowledge in all European programmes and show determination to enable potential synergies and complementarity between the programmes. It recalls the future envisioned in the Rome Declaration and encourages everyone to strive for coherent European knowledge policy on the road to inclusive and sustainable prosperity.
