LERU : Position Paper on FP8

The League of European Research Universities (LERU) has issued a position paper on FP8. Amongst its recommendations are:
  • Increased funding to meet the EU2020 goals, particularly for the ERC. In fact, the LERU liked the ERC generally, saying the peer review of other areas should take a leaf out of the ERC's book, and that auditing should be simplified and eligibility widened to encourage more participation;
  • Similarly, it liked the Marie Curie actions, thought they should be supported, and considered recent moves to shift them from DG Research to DG Education as a wrong step;
  • Responsive-mode funding should be increased, and that there should be more transparency in the selection of topics for managed programmes;
  • Liked the Joint Programming Initiatives in theory, but thought they lacked transparency;
  • Approved the moves by the EC to simplify the process and procedures around the Framework Programme.
The full text of the position paper can be accessed via the link, here.
