ERRIN priorities 2021

Every year ERRIN defines workstreams to guide its work throughout the coming 12 months, closely linking to its core missions and indicating the crucial interests towards the EU R&I agenda. 

The priorities for 2021 are as follows:

• Take full advantage of the new programmes, instruments and opportunities for regions and their ecosystems during the new financial period.

• Continue to be actively engaged in green recovery and seek further coordination between different governance levels and funding priorities.

• Utilise the opportunities provided by Horizon Europe and continue to shape the new programme elements  - Missions, European Innovation ecosystems (EIE) action.

• Set up a dedicated taskforce to tap into the underutilised R&I potentials.

ERRIN Working Groups Clusters

ERRIN currently has 13 Working Groups (WGs). The WGs are based on members’ priorities and on the current funding landscape. To utilise the existing and upcoming EU opportunities, the Working Groups are grouped in clusters that reflect, as much as possible, the way clusters are structured in the Horizon Europe programme. 

Before developing the Annual Plans for each of the Working Groups, key priorities are being defined, looking at the strategic issues on the EU R&I agenda, as well as programmes and cross-cutting topics.
