Showcase your Horizon 2020 experience and join EUA campaign for an ambitious European Framework Research & Innovation programme

With the start of the new academic year, EUA calls on universities to contribute to its campaign for an ambitious framework research programme to cover the period 2021-27, allowing to strengthen EUA’s position as a major stakeholder in these discussions. EUA remains fully committed to achieve optimal conditions for universities to participate in the next EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation (FP9). In the first half of the year, the Association exploited the outcomes of its 2016 membership consultation to promote a more effective and efficient programme in the post-2020 period.

EUA is pleased to see that many of its arguments have been taken on board by the Brussels policy-makers and welcomes a growing recognition of the underfunding challenge by the European Commission and initial indications that FP9 will aim at contributing to enhance the link between research, innovation and education. However, much remains to be done to convince national governments to match financially the EU’s ambitions for research. In the summer, the EU Council proposed a significantly smaller increase to the Horizon 2020 budget for 2018 than was set out in the Commission’s draft budget for next year. These developments create further concern about sufficient future funding for FP9 and point to the need for a stronger communication of universities’ contributions to society through their participation in the EU Framework Programme.

In seeking to support its core messages with the concrete examples of universities’ engagement, EUA invites its members to contribute to its new collection of cases on “Universities for FP9”. The collection will help EUA to share the stories of the sector with EU and national decision-makers, inspired by good practices and lessons learnt. It will support EUA advocacy activities promoting sound research policies, sustainable and simple funding instruments and effective regulations.

The call for contributions is available on the EUA website and the first collection round will end on 2 October 2017. Other rounds will be announced throughout the campaign in 2018 and 2019.

International Scientific Conference on Climate Change Adaptation in Eastern Europe – први позив

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

Први позив…

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:  https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/events/easterneurope2018.html

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.

Time for a quantum leap in EU research funding – an editorial from EUA President Rolf Tarrach

Europe needs more ambitious research funding, or risks losing precious knowledge, writes Rolf Tarrach in an editorial published on 30 May.
The European Union is currently defining its priorities for the next decade. The scientific community takes this opportunity to remind European policymakers that research and innovation propel both societal progress and sustainable economic growth.Universities are the unique places for production and dissemination of new knowledge, which are fundamentally important for society. Universities have been benefitting from, and contributing to the EU research framework programmes (FPs) for decades.

The EU framework programme is one of the most powerful instruments the EU has developed to support excellent science and outstanding collaborative research across Europe and internationally. It has further structured and scaled up the scientific community’s efforts and capacity to tackle large-scale, ‘big picture’ challenges which will define the way we live tomorrow.

The FP has generated so much interest among stakeholders that one might say it has been too successful in attracting first class participation. At the same time, despite significant efforts, FP spending has not kept up with the demands of increasingly knowledge-driven societies.
