EuCheMS responds to consultation on EU funds in the area of investment, research & innovations, SMEs and single market

In light of the upcoming European Commission (EC) proposals for the next generation of financial programmes for the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework, EuCheMS has responded to the public consultation on EU funds in the area of investment, research & innovations (R&I), SMEs and single market and has published a position paper laying out in more detail our vision for the way forward in the future Framework Programme 9 (FP9).

In addition to proposals for mechanisms for FP9, EuCheMS has defined a total of eight Missions that should be established in key areas. From Missions on ‘Sustainable Low Carbon Energy For All’, ‘Forming a fit-for purpose Food landscape’, ‘Enabling Our Ageing Population’ and ‘Averting an Antimicrobial Resistance Apocalypse’, these Missions highlight what we, as the voice of Chemical Sciences in Europe, perceive as some of the global challenges facing Europe. A Multiannual Financial Framework and an FP9 that recognises the potential of scientific research and innovation, as well as the role this provides in job creation, will be essential in tackling societal, environmental and economic challenges in Europe.
