Investing in the European future we want : report of the independent High Level Group on maximising the impact of EU research & innovation programmes
The European Commission, through Carlos Moedas, Commissioner for research, science and innovation, invited us to draw up a vision and strategic recommendations to maximise the impact of future European Union (EU) research and innovation programme. This report is the result of the Group’s deliberations. The twelve of us brought different but complementary perspectives to research, innovation and education. These perspectives were grounded in personal experience with the policy, the practice or in many cases both. The Group agreed without difficulty on a number of core messages. Our main... message, and vision, is that investing in research and innovation is increasingly crucial for shaping a better European future in a rapidly globalising world, where success depends ever more on the production and use of knowledge.
