European Commission sets out country-specific recommendations on research

Wednesday 12 June 2019

As part of its European Semester process (the EU's yearly cycle of economic, fiscal and social policy coordination), the European Commission has adopted proposals for country specific recommendations. Recommendations for all 28 Member States have been issued, primarily focused around the need to increase investment in research and innovation. Of particular interest, three Member States, Greece, Poland and Slovakia, had specific recommendations in relation to healthcare-related research.  Also of note, the recommendations for Denmark noted the country’s focus on research in the fields of pharmacology and biotechnology. The Commission's proposals for country-specific recommendations will now be discussed in the Council, where EU countries have until early July to vote on their final adoption. Following the approval of the recommendations, their implementation will be monitored. You can read the full recommendations here:
