Petition for an increased EU Budget for Research and Innovation

We, the undersigned, scientists, concerned citizens, innovators in or from Europe, welcome the proposal for Horizon Europe. But we urge the European Commission, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament in light of growing geopolitical challenges as well as very high levels of competition to create a step change in budgetary commitment for Research and Innovation, by moving from the current 100 billion € target proposed for the next 7-year Financial Framework period to at least 160 billion €.

EuroScience and Initiative for Science in Europe have launched a petition on double-ri.eu. Help us in our endeavour by signing and sharing it, using the hashtag #DoubleRIEU.
