This public consultation was launched on the basis of a Green Paper entitled ‘From Challenges to Opportunities: Towards a Common Strategic Framework for EU research and innovation funding’. Over 2.000 organisations, scientists, entrepreneurs and other individuals provided a response. The Common Strategic Framework will bring together funding currently provided through the Framework Programme for Research (FP7), the innovation actions of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The aim is to make EU research and innovation funding easier to access, increase its scientific and economic impact and provide better value for money. The Common Strategic Framework also provides the basis for far-reaching simplification of procedures and rules. The results of the consultation, including the discussions during the 10 June 2011 conference, will feed into the development of the Commission’s legislative proposals for research and innovation spending under the future EU budget post-2013. These proposals will be presented at the end of 2011.
