Infrastructure investment needs better EU coordination

EU funding must be better synchronised if Europe’s technology infrastructures are to be kept up to date and relevant to the needs of industry, the European Commission has said.

A Commission document published on 20 May said that the Digital Europe programme, the European Regional Development Fund and the Horizon Europe R&D programme must be better coordinated if they are to be effective in spurring national and private investment in infrastructures.

Mapping existing technology testing facilities, comparing these with future industry needs and sketching out future investment plans will also be important if infrastructures are to be of most value to industry, the report’s authors said.
