The Conference on Synergies in the Research and Innovation Funding in Europe, organised by the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU, took place from Thursday, 7th July to Friday, 8th July 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic, as a lunch-to-lunch event.
The conference addressed the topic of synergies in the research and innovation funding in its broad perspective. A lot of efforts have been already made by both Member States and the European Commission to exploit the full potential of synergies to increase the research and innovation funding intensity in the EU.
The Czech Presidency flagship conference built on existing good practices and experience sharing, and provided a high-level forum for debates on deficiencies in synergies settings and putting synergies in practice.
High-level representatives of the European Commission and Member States presented their views and discussed how to remove persisting barriers and facilitate better synergies. The outcomes of the conference are presented in the form of the “Prague Declaration on Synergies in the Research and Innovation Funding in Europe”.
