Research and Innovation for the Future of Europe

A Manifesto to promote the discussion on R&I issues

within the Conference on the Future of Europe and beyond

Home: Benvenuti


The Conference on the Future of Europe is a unique opportunity for European citizens to reflect and debate on Europe’s challenges and priorities: a citizens-focused, bottom-up exercise for Europeans to have their say on what they expect from the Union. As stated in the joint declaration, the EU must provide inclusive answers to our generation-defining tasks: achieving the green and digital transitions, ensuring a fair, sustainable and competitive economy, addressing geopolitical challenges in the post-COVID-19 global environment.

Research and innovation have shown to be key drivers to address those challenges and therefore R&I issues have been increasingly preeminent in the EU political agenda. The Recovery Plan for Europe NextGenerationEU will mobilise significant resources to support R&I activities. 2021 has also marked the launch of Horizon Europe, the most ambitious EU R&I programme ever with a budget of €95.5 billion over seven years. Despite its central role, research and innovation do not appear among the selected priority topics of the Conference on the Future of Europe.
