The University of Trento supports the Research and Innovation for the Future of Europe Manifesto, launched last November and already signed by 94 organizations and associations from the entire European research and innovation community. The signatories represent over 600 universities, more than 400 research centres and research and technology organizations, 140 trade associations from the industrial world and small and medium-sized enterprises, over 150 regional and local organizations.
"We invite the Conference on the Future of Europe to reflect and debate on Europe’s challenges and priorities in the coming months, as Research and Innovation issues have been increasingly preeminent in the EU political agenda".
On 20 January 2022 the Manifesto was submitted to the members of the Plenary Session of the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE), which has been convened, on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 January, to discuss the first 90 recommendations adopted by the European Citizens' Panels and the related recommendations from national panels.
There is no doubt - reads the Manifesto - that the future of Europe and its citizens will be largely linked to our performance in science and technology. In the coming years, research and innovation will be crucial to steer Europe’s recovery, preparedness and resilience, accelerate the twin green and digital transitions, and support the EU’s aspirations of open strategic autonomy.
This is the main message of the Manifesto, and organizations and individuals are invited to support this initiative. The full text of the Manifesto and the complete list of supporters are available on the Reserchforeurope website.
