"We urge the European Parliament, the Council of Ministers and the European Commission to create the needed 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 160 billion €.” is one of the statements in the petition, which is a response to the newly presented proposal for Horizon Europe, the upcoming European Research and Innovation Programme for the period from 2021 to 2027.
So far, more than a thousand scientists have signed, among them several Nobel Prize laureates.
