LERU, the League of European Research Universities, has published a comprehensive position paper comprising its views on FP10. The paper ‘LERU’s blueprint for FP10 Recommendations for the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation’ was released on 15 May 2024 and adds more detail to the key messages paper on FP10 that LERU had presented already last year.

For LERU, the FP is a crucial driving force of R&I worldwide and hence a programme with a key role in addressing pressing societal challenges, strengthening competitiveness, and accelerating a move towards strategic autonomy. LERU is committed to making the Framework Programme simpler and even more impactful. The association calls for a budget of €200 billion for FP10 and for ring-fencing this budget, in order to ensure budget stability.
