This week: political priorities, intellectual property rules, Atlantic agreements and more
EU research ministers are nearly ready to adopt positions on topics including research assessment, open science, R&D missions, and values for international cooperation on research on 10 June. Near-final versions of the texts were sent to EU member state government representatives last month, and national delegations were asked to provide any last-minute objections. One text invites the European Commission and EU member states to “draw on and develop further the good practices” identified in a guide on tackling foreign interference published by the Commission in January. Another, on R&D missions, urges the Commission to “ensure further substantial investments” from EU programmes.
