Commissioner Moedas Against Proposed Cuts to Horizon 2020

EU Research Commissioner Carlos Moedas has recently criticised, during a conference, a proposal from member states to cut almost half a billion euros out of Horizon 2020. In May, the European Commission proposed a budget of €160.6 billion for 2018. The Council answered in July, proposing a €1.7 billion reduction which would impact Horizon 2020. Moedas said that, to walk back the proposals, scientists needed to call their governments. The Commissioner also guaranteed he would make his case to ministers of science and finance.
