ERT position on Research and Innovation

26 November 2017

This position paper outlines the ERT views on research and innovation in the context of the ongoing debates on the future Framework Programme and EU industrial policy.

It also provides comments on the report “LAB – FAB – APP Investing in the European future we want” presented by M. Pascal Lamy and the independent High-Level Group in July 2017.

A positive climate for innovation is even more important in view of the fact that digitisation is currently transforming industrial production processes and business models worldwide.
