The new European Research Area (two-pager)

On 16 July 2021, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a Council Recommendation on a Pact. The Pact proposal defines shared priority areas for joint action in support of the ERA, sets out the ambition for investments and reforms, and constitutes the basis for a simplified policy coordination and monitoring process at EU and Member States’ level through an ERA platform where Member States can share their reform and investment approaches to enhance exchanges of best practices. The Pact is a result of a cooperation between the European Commission, Member States and ERA stakeholders during the first half of 2021.
