Ministers plan to cut collaboration tools across research programmes

Research ministers have agreed that the number of instruments for research partnerships must be reduced.

The Council of Ministers, which met in Tallinn, Estonia, on 25 July, pledged to simplify Europe’s “complex and fragmented” research system, the Estonian presidency of the Council has announced.

The ministers discussed Europe’s multitude of legal frameworks for establishing partnerships in research and innovation. These include Article 185 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, Article 187 of the Treaty of Lisbon, programmes for public-private partnerships, and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology’s (EIT) Knowledge and Innovation Communities.
