Category: CAN Europe Positions
Published: 09 June 2017
Working with a coalition of seventeen organisations CAN Europe has set out a number of recommendations on the role of the next EU Framework for Research and Innovation.
Through its next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9), the EU has a unique opportunity to ensure that Europe remains a world leader in science, while simultaneously supporting human wellbeing and development, environmental stability, and economic sustainability.
The future framework programme should continue to support research and innovation that effectively combats climate change, contributes to pursuing the 1.5 target, and protects the environment, and foster the cooperation with LMICs to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
