The European Commission has launched a consultation on the new ERA roadmap. The initiative aims to revitalise the European Research Area by strengthening its innovation dimension as well as integrating aspects of skills and education. It will do so by creating a new vision, consisting of a transformative R&I policy that will trigger technological and societal change.

The European Research Area was set to increase EU coordination and impacts of R&I policy to provide solutions for the environmental, social, and economic transformations. As the communication on the future of the ERA is being developed, ERRIN has worked on a set of concrete recommendations highlighting the role of regional innovation ecosystems in achieving more efficient and impactful ERA.

The roadmap is open for feedback until 3 August. To add your feedback, visit the website. The adoption by the Commission is planned for the third quarter of 2020.
