The Europe 2020 strategy is the primary EU-level plan to strengthen growth and competitiveness, by producing clear European added value through investment in education, research and innovation. A well-funded and functional research environment is the basis for generating solutions to meet future societal and economic challenges in Europe, with a long term perspective. Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, needs an appropriate budget; the European knowledge economy and Europe's ability to tackle major societal challenges are at stake.
