In the media: Horizon 2020 spared budget cuts
LERU Secretary-General, Prof. Kurt Deketelaere, reacts in Research Europe on the Horizon 2020 spared budget cuts.
“Of course [the outcome] is a nice surprise, but the question is why every year must this be such a struggle? Again, as in past years, the Parliament had to save the research and innovation furniture. It’s a disgrace for the 28 national finance ministers who at home always confirm how important research and innovation are.”
