    The European Commission has launched a series of public consultations to ask stakeholders and citizens in which areas Europe should invest in the future. This is to prepare the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) post-2020 which will also include the next Erasmus Programme, the Framework Programme for Research (FP9) and structural funds. EUA is closely involved in the discussions through its campaign on EU Funding for Universities and will continue to advocate for ambitious, simple and sustainable funding on behalf of its members.

    EUA is carrying out a study on the organisation of doctoral education in Europe. The outcomes of the study will influence future activities of EUA and its Council for Doctoral Education (EUA-CDE). The latter brings together a community of academic leaders and doctoral education professionals from more than 230 universities in over 30 countries.

    EUA Members and partners are invited to voice their support and to provide feedback on a draft advocacy proposal to the EU to establish a specific grant under the Erasmus+ programme for support of the placement of scholars and students with international protection status at European higher education and research institutions. As the funding should come from budgets for third-country cooperation, this should not diminish the intra-European Erasmus+ programme.

    The TRUNAK project officially started at the end of 2017 with a kick-off meeting in Karaganda, Kazakhstan. The project, supported by the European Union under Erasmus+, seeks to enhance university autonomy in Kazakhstan.

    The EUA High-Level Group on ‘big deals’ with scientific publishers and the Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science met in Brussels on 10-12 January 2018 to discuss negotiations with publishers, research data management and open data. The groups also agreed on priorities for 2018.

    EU institutions and Member States gauge respective positions ahead of negotiations.
