EIROforum has launched a response to the European Research Area (ERA) Progress Report, which was published by the European Commission on 23 September 2013. The ERA Progress Report is a critical assessment of whether the goal of creating a “reinforced ERA” by the year 2014 is achievable and what the current status of the ERA is.
EIROforum Organisations are mentioned several times as best practice examples in the report itself and in the accompanying “Commission Staff Working Document”. The ERA response was presented to the Research Working Party on 31 October 2013 in Brussels.
The Research Working Party is one of the EU Council’s Working Parties, which prepares the work of COREPER I and II (Committee of Permanent Representatives), who then advise the EU Council.
