EIROforum participated in the EC Conference on the Common Strategic Framework for EU research and innovation funding, held at the Charlemagne building in Brussels on 10 June 2011.

The Conference followed a four-month public consultation initiated in February 2011 by a Green Paper of the European Commission. In the context of this consultation, EIROforum has submitted a position paper to the EU Commissioner for Research and Innovation, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, commenting on a number of the issues raised in the Green Paper and adding to the position paper on FP8 that EIROforum published already in January 2011.
