Joint Statement for an Ambitious FP10: Investing in Europe’s future Competitiveness through collaborative Research, Development and Innovation

110 organisations, including FIEC, and led by EARTO (European Association of Research & Technology Organisations) have co-signed the Joint Statement calling for an ambitious European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP10).

The text aims at urging the EU institutions to significantly increase the current RD&I (research, development and innovation) budget in view of the launch of the FP10 and making pan-European excellent cross-border collaborative RD&I the cornerstone of this funding programme.

The signatories (European associations representing the key European RD&I stakeholders) are ready to further discuss the design of FP10 with the EU institutions, and are fully convinced that Europe has much better potential in the global innovation race than what it is currently performing. To remain a model of economic and social prosperity, Europe needs to strongly invest in panEuropean collaborative RD&I fostering collaboration, driving technology maturation and innovation, and leveraging the expertise of RD&I public and private actors to strengthen its competitiveness and assert its leadership in key technological domains, as well as pave the way for a prosperous and sustainable future.
