EUREKA’s 20 years of experience in the field of European collaborative research and innovation is an important resource, proven by its success in real-world conditions. The Prague EUREKA Forum on 21 October 2005 agreed that this pool of knowledge should be used in synergy with the European Commission in the process of creating and developing European and member countries’ funding programmes.
“I believe that if sustainable recovery of the European economy is to be achieved, substantial investment in research and innovation is vital for the future competitiveness of European industry,” said Martin Jahn, Vice-Prime Minister of the Czech Republic. “The EUREKA Forum provides an opportunity for key players in industry, public and private funding sources and national authorities to debate important issues regarding the future of European research.”
The Forum’s primary aim was to raise the political profile of the EUREKA Initiative and to reinforce the commitment of member countries in ensuring the stability and predictability of national public funding for innovative research.
