Decisions on EU research funding key in next parliamentary term

A significant increase in the European Union’s next RDI budget is necessary to strengthen both the EU’s and Finland’s knowledge base, competitiveness and self-sufficiency in knowledge and research. Excellence as the cornerstone of the framework programme must be maintained. The EU framework programmes for research and innovation have for decades provided funding for high-quality RDI projects and helped create new knowledge and new skills and shored up Europe’s competitiveness. The funding to be distributed under the next framework programme (FP10) must be earmarked and allocated to excellent research and innovation.
