EUA newsletter

EUA Newsletter 19 – 10/11/17

EUA presents detailed proposals for the new Framework Programme for Research & Innovation

With the debate on the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9) in full swing, EUA has launched a set of precise recommendations for the post-2020 period.

In the publication, presented this week at an EUA policy event in Brussels, the Association builds on months of reflection, further defining its vision developed last year, and providing concrete solutions to issues regarding rules and participation criteria.

As one of the first pan-European stakeholders to put forward such proposals, EUA focuses its attention on three key areas that must be addressed in the new programme:

  • provision of long-term policies and funding instruments for research
  • reinforcement of collaboration and minimisation of discrepancies across the EU
  • to seek a stronger alignment of EU policies for education, research and innovation
EUA’s proposals highlight issues such as the need for sustainable funding, incentives fostering multidisciplinarity and a more open scientific system. They also target the complex geographical imbalances present in participation and the use of resources. In addition, the recommendations focus on the need to support the development of human talent as the fundamental driver of innovation.

“Building a more competitive, prosperous and inclusive Europe requires a strong framework programme, capable of fully supporting and leveraging European research and innovation,” said Professor Martine Rahier, EUA Vice-President and Chair of the EUA Research Policy Working Group. “Therefore, it is essential to get it right post-2020.”

EUA’s recommendations build on the Association’s Vision for FP9, member consultation on the Horizon 2020 mid-term review, the campaign for “EU funding for universities”, and the Association’s ongoing work on Open Science and Smart Specialisation. They were prepared in consultation with EUA’s Research Policy Working Group and the EUA Council. EUA’s recommendations also echo several of the ideas presented in the European Commission’s report LAB-FAB-APP Investing in the European Future We Want (the “Lamy” report).


Support EUA’s advocacy for the establishment of a flexible Erasmus+ grant to integrate international talent with a protection status

Scholars and students are among the groups that are frequently persecuted for their academic and civic engagement. Data collected by EUA on the Refugees Welcome Map proves that universities all over Europe already support students and scholars who are obliged to flee their countries. The main reason why universities cannot do more is simply a lack of funding, as they usually have to rely on their own financial resources and the voluntary engagement and commitment of individual staff. Funding and support initiatives exist only at some national levels, and dedicated organisations such as Scholars at Risk and CARA face increasing difficulties to find placements for scholars.

Open science: EUA publishes statement for EU institutions and national governments and Recommendations on Research Data Management and Text & Data Mining

On 27 October the EUA Council adopted a political statement on Open Science. The document includes key messages from the university sector addressed to EU institutions and national governments, with a view to contributing to the faster development of an open scholarly knowledge exchange system. The statement focuses particularly on prioritising open access to research publications and to research data, and on creating adequate framework conditions for the re-use of research outcomes produced as a result of publicly funded research.

EUA responds to the European Commission’s Work Programme 2018

The work programme of the European Commission for 2018 was adopted on 24 October. In its response, EUA regrets that the present programme does not include visible efforts to further develop the European Research Area (ERA). By realising Europe’s potential in research and innovation through working seamlessly across borders and closing the innovation divide between the member states, this in itself would be a powerful factor for accomplishing the ambitions of the Commission, creating sustainable growth and jobs for our continent and retaining a competitive industrial base.

International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe – produžen rok

Produžen je rok za prijavu apstrakata za Konferenciju. VIŠE…


3rd – 5th July 2018: International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe, Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Climate change affects countries in Eastern Europe, i.e. the Western Balkans and Southeast Europe in a variety of ways. Apart from severe floods, there are records of decreasing water reserves in the southern part, and of gradual changes in biodiversity and agricultural production. In the South Caucasus area, for instance, climate change models project decline in precipitation by the end of the century,  and suggest that it will continue to become drier this century.

Many Eastern European countries, especially the non-EU ones, are characterized by the fact that national climate  policies on the one hand, and trans-boundary collaboration on the other are rather week, and by  the fact that the engagement of the general public on matters related to climate change is still rather limited. Climate change thus poses a serious threat to the economic stability and development of many Eastern European countries,  and  to the sustainable development of the region.

The above state of affairs illustrates the need for a better understanding of how climate change influences Eastern Europe, and for the identification of processes, methods and tools which may help the countries and the communities in the region to adapt.  There is also a perceived need to showcase successful examples of how to cope with the social, economic and political problems posed by floods/droughts in the region, especially the ways of increasing the resilience of agriculture systems and of communities.

It is against this background that the “International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe” is being organized  by the University of Banja Luka, University of Belgrade, the Research and Transfer Center “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany), The International Climate Change Information Program (ICCIP), Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency of the Republic of Srpska, and Center for Climate Research (CCR Banja Luka). The Conference will be a truly interdisciplinary event, mobilizing scholars, social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies,  undertaking research and/or executing projects focusing on climate change in Eastern Europe.

Papers submitted to the event will be peer-reviewed and the accepted ones will be published in the book “Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe: Managing risks and building resilience to climate change”.
This will be a further volume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by the Springer, which since its creation in 2008 has become the  world´s leading book series on climate change management. The decision of the editors as to which papers may be selected and undergo peer review for the book is final.

Further details can be seen at:

The International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe will be held in  Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina on 3rd-5th July 2018.
