The Conference on Synergies in the Research and Innovation Funding in Europe, to be organised by the Czech Presidency in the Council of the EU, will take place from Thursday, 7th July to Friday 8th July 2022 in Prague, Czechia, as a lunch-to-lunch event.

The conference will address the topic of synergies in the research and innovation funding in its broad perspective. A lot of efforts have been already made by both the Member States and the European Commission to exploit the full potential of synergies to increase the research and innovation funding intensity in the EU.

This Czech Presidency flagship conference will build on existing good practice examples and experience sharing, and also provide a high-level forum for debates on deficiencies in synergies settings and putting synergies in practice.

High-level representatives of the European Commission and the Members States will present their views and discuss how to remove persisting barriers and facilitate synergies. The outcomes of the conference shall be presented in the form of the “Prague Declaration on Synergies in the Research and Innovation Funding in Europe”.
