GHA’s recommendations to ensure future EU research programmes really deliver for people

The European Commission recently held the largest public consultation ever on the past, present, and future of the its research programmes: Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe

In order to guarantee availability, accessibility, and affordability of result outcomes, it is crucial that EU biomedical Research and Innovation (R&I) funding focus on unmet societal needs, in addition to binding conditionalities to all funding.

Global Health Advocates has compiled a policy brief that was submitted with our contribution to the consultation, with 4 key recommendations to ensure that future EU research programmes really deliver for people:

  • Guiding principles for greater societal impact: a starting point to maximise societal impact,
  • Increasing funding for poverty-related and neglected diseases (PRNDs): a precondition for tackling unmet medical needs,
  • Serving public interests, not private profits with Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), and
  • Tackling global challenges requires increased international cooperation.
