Horizon Europe must be open to the world, report says

The EU’s 2021-27 R&D programme Horizon Europe should provide “much more support” for collaboration with non-EU partners, according an economic think tank.

Previous EU R&D programmes have “fallen short” when it comes to making the most of talent from outside the bloc, according to a study carried out for the Parliament’s research committee by senior fellow Reinhilde Veugelers and research assistant Michael Baltensperger from the Brussels-based Bruegel think tank.

“The EU needs to become more open to the rest of the world, with much more support than in the past for collaboration with the best non-EU partners and mobility of research talent into and out of the EU,” the authors said in their report, which was published on 29 April.
