On April 20, EIROforum, a collaboration between seven European intergovernmental scientific research organisations (CERN, EFDA, EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, ILL), presented to EU Science and Research Commissioner Dr. Janez Potočnik their joint paper “Towards a Europe of Knowledge and Innovation”.

This forward-looking document sets out comprehensive proposals for the future of European scientific research. Its objective is to further reinforce the close ties between EIROforum members and the European Commission. This increased collaboration, combined with the individual expertise of each of the EIROforum partners, should provide a strong boost to European research, and to the Lisbon Goals of Knowledge for Growth.

At the event to launch the paper, the EU Commissioner defined EIROforum “as a pillar in the ongoing construction of the European Research Area”.

He also added that “EIROforum partners are a crucial driving force in European research. They are evidence of the usefulness of a pan-European approach to meet some of the biggest challenges in research today, demonstrating that working together can achieve more than any individual effort.”
