---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: <infso...@ec.europa.eu> Date: Wed, Mar 16, 2011 at 15:19 Subject: Participate in the open Consultation of the Green Paper "From Challenges to Opportunities: Towards a Common Strategic Framework for EU Research and Innovation funding" To: rupert.thur...@wikimedia.ch Dear Sir or Madam, The European Commission is currently working on a Common Strategic Framework for future EU Research and Innovation Funding and would like to hear *your opinion *and ideas on how to: - refocus funding towards projects that tackle current challenges, such as health and an ageing population, climate change, food security and diminishing natural resources, - better coordinate funding along the innovation chain - from basic research to launching new products and services on the market, and - make it easier for researchers and enterprises (particularly small ones) to cooperate, to apply for and use EU research and innovation funding. If you have ever wished to receive financial support from the European Union for your research and development activities, if you have ever considered applying for one of the many EU funding programmes, if you have actually applied and worked on a EU funded project, then you must have developed your ideas on issues like: -- What kind of research and development activities should the EU support, and why? -- Based on which priorities should the EU design its funding programmes and how can it monitor their effectiveness and efficiency? -- How can the EU produce the most valuable results with the funding available? -- How can the EU welcome all participants with good ideas and keep projects administratively simple and flexible?
