EU Commission sketches out the route to next research programme


The groundwork for the 2021- 2028 EU research programme is already being laid, with a foresight study in hand, plans to develop new models of how R&D contributes to the economy, and a public consultation due to open next month, Robert Jan-Smits, Director-General for Research at the European Commission said in Brussels. A public consultation will open at the end of the month, with researchers and industry invited to share their experience of Horizon 2020.
