Background

Under the research part of its agenda, the Council debates on the Europe 2020 strategy
for growth and jobs on the basis of the Commission’s Annual Growth Survey for 2013. Ministers for research also hold a debate on open access to scientific information of publicfunded research projects. Broader and more rapid access to scientific publications and data will help researchers and businesses to build on the findings of publicly funded research. This will contribute to boost Europe’s innovation capacity, help tackle societal challenges and provide citizens with quicker access to scientific discoveries. The optimal circulation, access to and transfer of scientific knowledge is one of the objectives of the establishment of a genuine European Research Area.
Finally, the Council takes stock of Joint Programming activities carried out in the field of
research. Joint Programming is a process designed to ensure the optimisation of research efforts. It aims to reinforce cross-border cooperation and the coordination and alignment of national publicly funded research programmes. It is a part of the new European Research Area landscape. Since 2009, 10 joint programming initiatives have been launched in order to address specific societal challenges facing Europe such as neurodegenerative diseases, climate change, urban development, etc.
