Policy Areas

The Science Europe Roadmap identifies nine ‘Priority Action Areas’. These are the policy topics in which Science Europe Member Organisations believe that there is potential to achieve tangible and substantive progress, and to add real value by working together.

A robust research system for Europe can only be ensured if all actors play their part in this, including national governments, European Institutions, individual organisations, and researchers themselves. Science Europe is committed to working on these nine policy areas, within the collective remit of its Member Organisations and the scientific communities they represent, as well as collaborating with others where partnership is needed and where progress requires collaboration beyond that of the Science Europe Member Organisations.

More detailed information on each the policy areas can be found in the toolbar to the left.
