The European Parliament had a busy week last week approving over €400 billion support measures for regional development, research and innovation, lifelong learning, cultural and media European collaboration activities. The legislative packages for the following programmes have now been agreed by the European Parliament for the 2014 – 2020 programme period:
Horizon 2020 – €70.2 billion for research and innovation (Draft Horizon 2020 work programmes are now available via the European Commission website at http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020/index_en.cfm?pg=h2020-documents. )
Cohesion Policy – €325 billion for growth and job creation through European Regional Development Fund; the European Social Fund; the Cohesion Fund; the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development; and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
Erasmus+ – €14.7 billion for lifelong learning, focussing on student and staff mobility through strategic partnerships.
Creative Europe – €1.4 billion for supporting European culture, media and arts sectors
