The European Physical Society
(EPS) has written a letter to the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, expressing concern over the re-allocation of funds from the Horizon 2020 budget.
Research and development are key drivers of prosperity, and reducing Europe’s capacity to finance frontier research jeopardizes its ability to develop the future technology that will be important for economic growth, job creation, and addressing societal challenges. Cutting the Horizon 2020 budget is sending the wrong message to the scientific communities who are essential for Europe's future.
