News archive - ERAWATCH offers new "European perspective" on research

ERAWATCH, the European Commission's on-line information platform on research systems and policies in Europe and beyond, has expanded its service with a new section entitled "European Perspective", offering an overview of research policies and systems at a European level.

New content includes analytical summaries and comparisons of EU Member States in terms of research policies and systems. The section also has information on intergovernmental and supranational R&D cooperation programmes and organisations with relevance to the European Research Area (ERA).

In addition, the coverage of the ERAWATCH Research Inventory has been extended to include information on national and regional research policies, research structures and research actors in a number of additional non-EU countries, such as Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Significant technical and presentation improvements have also been made to the website, including a new and more user-friendly layout and navigation.

The ERAWATCH information platform is a long term cooperative undertaking between JRC-IPTS and the European Commission's Research Directorate General.
