Advisory Council on Science, Technology and Innovation - Consultation

The Advisory Council on Science, Technology and Innovation undertook a national consultation on the Eighth EU Framework Programme and the Common Strategic Framework on Research and Innovation.

In early February 2011, the European Commission released a Green Paper entitled "From Challenges to Opportunities: Towards a Common Strategic Framework for EU Research and Innovation Funding".  This outlines the need to clarify objectives, simplify participation, reduce complexity, broaden participation and increase the competitiveness and societal impact of EU support and the uptake of research results, as identified in the evaluations of previous and current Framework Programmes.

On foot of this paper, the Advisory Council on Science, Technology and Innovation consulted with the research and enterprise communities.

The closing date for the consultation process was 20 May 2011
