YERUN launches FP10 video series: Advocating for an attractive, impactful & inclusive FP10 

YERUN – The Young European Research Universities Network – aims to foster a more attractive, impactful and inclusive European research framework. Our vision for FP10 is to ensure it supports high-quality research, promotes collaborative efforts, and offers equal opportunities for all participants. 

On 10 April 2024, YERUN published a policy paper titled “FP10: Attractive, impactful and inclusive” outlining our strategic priorities for making the next EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme (FP10) a world-leading programme that fosters excellence in research and innovation. 

Furthermore, as an active participant in the Research Matters Campaign, YERUN is part of a significant collaboration between European universities, research organisations, funding agencies, industry partners, and communication professionals. This campaign advocates for increased funding and recognition for research and innovation, uniting stakeholders in a common cause. 

The FP10 video series 

To further our advocacy and spread our key recommendations, we are excited to launch the YERUN FP10 videos series. These videos will amplify the voices of researchers from YERUN universities, sharing their insights on the priorities highlighted in our FP10 paper. 

Our first video features Prof. Dr. Lena Katrin Bayer-Wilfert from the Institute of Evolutionary Ecology and Conservation Genomics at Ulm University. In this video, Prof. Dr. Bayer-Wilfert shares insights on the importance of funding broad and bottom-up research to achieve impact. 

Watch the first video and join us in advocating for a stronger and more inclusive European research framework. 

This video series will continue to feature researchers from various YERUN universities. Stay tuned and follow our YouTube channel, website, and social media for more insightful videos and updates.
