The 13th edition of the High Level Workshop on ERA focuses on the topic of Research Culture. The goal is to identify actions that can make the European Research Area a more attractive place for researchers and excellent research.
The Pact for Research and Innovation should give stakeholders a greater say over the implementation of the European Research Area. As things stand, stakeholders will have little say over how proposed increases in R&D budgets are implemented in member states. But this input and know-how is essential to advancing the single European area for research.

It is with great sorrow that Science Europe learned of the passing of Professor Jaroslav Koča, President of the Czech Science Foundation (GAČR), on 2 July 2021. He was appointed to the position of President in December 2020, after being a member of the Presidium of the Czech Science Foundation since 2016.
Science Europe had the brief opportunity to meet and work with him. In the personal meetings that we had with Professor Koča and in the events that he attended, we gained the impression of a dedicated and first-class scientist who was eager to contribute to European scientific co-operation. We very much looked forward to our future collaboration, which has been tragically cut short.
Science Europe extends its deepest condolences to Professor Koča's family, friends, and colleagues at the Czech Science Foundation.
For more information, please see the obituary on the Czech Science Foundation website.

Non-EU European countries, such as Norway, Iceland, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland contribute to the excellence of the European Research Area (ERA). Guaranteeing the full association of Switzerland to Horizon Europe is a pressing and critical issue for European Research and Innovation (R&I).
