Science Europe signs the Open Letter of the European STI Councils and Advisory Bodies on the participation of Switzerland under Horizon Europe
Science Europe Member Organisations are working hard to address the current COVID-19 pandemic. What are they doing?
Science Europe is the association representing major public organisations that fund or perform excellent, ground-breaking research in Europe.
We bring together the expertise of some of the largest and best-known research organisations in the world to jointly push the frontiers of how scientific research is produced and delivers benefits to society.
We advocate science and the scientific community to help build the European Research Area and shape the global scientific agenda.
With members from 28 EU and non-EU countries and from all parts of Europe, we speak with a truly European voice.
38 member organisations
Bringing together research funding and research performing organisations.

Our members make a significant contribution to European scientific research and are crucial stakeholders in European science and research policymaking
On 27 January 2021, Science Europe presented the second, extended version of its Practical Guide to the International Alignment of Research Data Management during a webinar with more than 260 participants.
As it was unfortunately not possible to address all questions participants asked during the launch event, this document presents the answers to the questions asked to both Science Europe and the webinar speakers.
The interoperability and sustainability of research data are an indispensable element of the shift towards an Open Science system. Join us as we present strategic guidance for research performers, funders, and data infrastructures to help ensure long-term preservation and accessibility of research data.
Group wants “organisational commitment” to better practices and enhanced collaboration
This Practical Guide provides guidance to ensure the long-term preservation and accessibility of research data. Three complementary maturity matrices provide funders, performers, and data infrastructures with a way to create a common understanding of the approaches needed.
‘Publishers have no legitimacy to impose transfer or restrictions of ownership rights on any form of manuscript. In the light of the current pandemic, publisher-dictated embargo periods appear hopelessly antiquated’ highlights Marc Schiltz, President of Science Europe, in this Chemisty World article on the recent CESAER-EUA-Science Europe joint statement on empowering researchers in Open Access.
On 19 May the Science Europe General Assembly accepted the application of two new research organisations to the association: research performing organisation the Eötvös Loránd Research Network (ELKH) from Hungary and the dual research funding and performing organisation the Institute of Health Carlos III (ISCIII) from Spain.
Covid-19 could make researchers more trusted by the public, or damage their reputations significantly? Lidia Borrell-Damián, Secretary General of Science Europe, weights in on the debate.
The year 2020 saw a global pandemic attest to the value of science. In the race for COVID-19 treatments and vaccines, Science Europe’s Member Organisations were at the forefront of the global response and our association became more relevant and important than ever.
Publishing models that restrict researchers’ rights and article reuse blasted as “outdated”
In a joint statement, research-performing and research-funding organisations represented by the European University Association, Science Europe and CESAER, call on all publishers to stop requiring researchers to sign over their rights and to end the use of restrictions and embargoes.
Released in partnership with the CESAER and the European University Association (EUA) this joint statement outlines how all publishers must fully respect researchers’ rights by providing clarity and transparency on Open Access.
