YERUN has participated in the online consultation on the Orientations towards the first Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe, which was closed on 17 November.
This paper contains YEURN’s answers to the last web-based consultation for umbrella organisations on the Orientations towards the first Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe document.
Overall, YERUN welcomes the involvement of umbrella organisations. Co-design is an excellent approach and should continue to be pursued. It increases stakeholder awareness of the policy priorities from an early stage and, by giving the possibility and responsibility to provide input, increases the legitimacy of the resulting policies and programmes.
YERUN will continue to provide the Commission with its feedback concerning the future developments of Horizon Europe, by giving voice to the young European research universities represented in the network.
