    Registration for the event will close on 13 September but with already over 250 participants, the First Learning and Teaching Forum promises to be an exciting gathering for EUA members on 28-29 September in Paris.

    With the start of the new academic year, EUA calls on universities to contribute to its campaign for an ambitious framework research programme to cover the period 2021-27, allowing to strengthen EUA’s position as a major stakeholder in these discussions. EUA remains fully committed to achieve optimal conditions for universities to participate in the next EU Framework Programme for Research & Innovation (FP9). In the first half of the year, the Association exploited the outcomes of its 2016 membership consultation to promote a more effective and efficient programme in the post-2020 period.

    In the past months, the European Commission has issued a series of papers on the future of Europe, including a White Paper on what the governance model and tasks of the Union should be, and several reflection papers on how the EU should deal with immediate, serious challenges such as the need to deepen the social dimension of Europe and harness globalisation.

    EUA has signed a joint Open Letter in collaboration with other stakeholders to express its alarm at the potentially damaging effects of the proposals currently in Parliament and Council for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on copyright in the Digital Single Market.

    As a follow-up to its 2016 Horizon 2020 member consultation, EUA is calling its members to share ideas on how to make the administration of EU-funded research projects less complex and resource intensive, by 23 October 2017 (deadline extended).
