A coordinated approach for science in Europe

Accoridng to an article published on iSGTW,Horizon 2020, the European Commission’s next funding cycle, is set to launch in January, 2014. That’s just over six months away.

iSGTW has reported previously on what this means, not only for the e-infrastructure projects that underpin international, collaborative computational science projects in Europe, but also for the science projects and the scientists who use them. However, perhaps the most important watchword in tough economic times is ‘coordination’: ensuring that funding is used wisely, minimizing overlap between projects, and sharing facilities and services wherever commonalities can be found.

Global connectivity between researchers themselves and superfast connections between existing centers of excellence will, arguably, have a more important role to play than ever. Building brand new research institutes is less justifiable when funding is uncertain, especially when centers of excellence already exist. The goal of making every European researcher digital, and the changing model of how research is carried out, makes these networks an integral part of the fabric of the European Research Area.
