Call for contributions: universities and EU research funding
As member of EUA, you are invited to join EUA’s campaign for an ambitious EU research and innovation funding programme for the post-2020 period. EUA carries out a series of activities in the framework of its advocacy campaign, which are articulated around the following key points:
- stronger collaboration and reduced discrepancies across the EU
- stronger alignment of policies for education, research and innovation
- ending the underfunding of excellence: ambitious funding and enhanced efficiency

The collection will provide EUA with the stories that the sector wishes to tell EU and national decision-makers, inspired by institutional strategies, good practices and lessons learnt. It will support EUA advocacy activities promoting sound research policies, sustainable and simple funding instruments and effective regulations.
The collection will also support a broad dissemination of illustrative cases via projects, events and other communication activities with the aim to promote the sector’s views on the above.

Participation modalities:
• All EUA members are eligible to contribute to the collection of cases throughout the EUA campaign towards FP9.
• Several contribution rounds will be announced, with cut-off dates for submissions. The first cut-off date is 30 November 2017.
