Summaries of EU Legislation on Research and Innovation policies.
Admission and residence of researchers from third countries
The mobility of researchers is a key element in the acquisition and transfer of knowledge. Member States, working with the Commission, need to step up their action to facilitate the entry and residence of researchers from third countries. The European Research Area is the lynchpin of EU research policy, and supporting the mobility of researchers is a key instrument in making it a reality.
The management of intellectual property by public research organisations
In order to promote the results of scientific research, the European Commission has adopted a Recommendation to improve intellectual property management and knowledge transfer by public research organisations (PROs). The Commission will thus contribute to the building of a knowledge society and establish a new milestone in the creation of the ‘fifth freedom’: the free circulation of knowledge.
EU Strategy for biofuels
The EU sets out seven strategic policy areas for the development of the production and use of biofuels by the Member States and developing countries.
Research & Innovation: Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2013) - Building the Europe of Knowledge
At the heart of the Lisbon Strategy, research is a component of a knowledge triangle (the other two being education and innovation) meant to boost growth and employment in the European Union (EU) in the context of a global economy. The 7th Framework Programme for Research, covering the period 2007 to 2013, is an opportunity for the EU to match its research policy to its ambitions in terms of economic and social policy by consolidating the European Research Area (ERA).
