What Europe’s research world is likely to see over the next 12 months

In Brussels, the coming months will hinge around European elections taking place in June, even while Belgium prepares for its own election in that same month.
This brings the potential for power shifts in the European Parliament and the possibility of a new European Commission president. But many expect a calmer time for research policy.
