Reforming and Enhancing the European R&I System

Similar to the free movement of goods and services, the European Commission wants to expand the European Research area in which researchers and innovators can move around in the EU without encountering legal, technological or physical borders. The primary objective is thus to stimulate the mobility of people active in R&I and diffuse the available knowledge all over Europe.

About this programme

During the new programme period, the European Research Area (ERA) will support a new phase in the development of the ERA and synergies with the European Higher Education Area, which may include a stronger focus on supporting the challenges identified in Pillar II, including missions and partnerships, to ensure that the strategic investments made there deliver maximum impact.

Opening the European Research Area to future challenges requires developing synergies with the European Higher Education Area in a complex landscape of universities and research organisations with a view to underpinning open science, innovative entrepreneurial practices, life-long-learning and upskilling talent and breaking down disciplinary and inter-sectoral barriers to match emerging business and societal needs.

Impacts will include better alignment of national reforms and increased programme level collaboration across Member States and Associated Countries, and will help increase the impact of both national and European investments in research and innovation. This will also support other research and innovation priorities including Open Science, citizens’ science, gender equality and other forms of diversity, improving international cooperation, ethics and integrity, and scientific input to other EU policies.
