EU research budget: ERT and ERC share concerns

The European Council will agree on the EU budget for 2014-2020 in the next days. The European Round Table of Industrialists (ERT) and the European Research Council (ERC) share the strong concerns about cuts to the EU research budget expressed by Nobel laureates in their letter that was published across Europe last October. In a joint open letter, the two organisations call on Europe's leaders to approve the €80 billion funding programme for research and innovation.
