Information for the preparation of the next EU RDI Framework Program
The European Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) funds are strategic for Catalonia, capturing 2.6% of the EU funds in the first half of the Horizon 2020 program. Activities for the preparation of the next Framework program (provisionally called FP9), which will shape the future of European research and innovation in the period 2021-2027, have already begun.
FP9 will be a unique opportunity for European RDI. The Generalitat de Catalunya is working to identify key issues that will be important in the coming years to influence its definition and design, while ensuring that the most important priorities for the future of Catalonia are reflected.
The Department of Enterprise and Knowledge, and its main entities involved in RDI (ACCIÓ, AGAUR and CERCA) and the Delegation of the Government of Catalonia to the EU in Brussels coordinate the preparation of a position paper of the Government of Catalonia on FP9.
For the preparation of the mentioned position paper, a public consultation was published (closed on 29th Sept. 2017). The results of this consultation will be incorporated into the paper of the Government of Catalonia, which will also include the opinion of different groups of experts.
