<head><title>FSFE provides input to EC on 80bn EUR R and D funding program</title></head>
FSFE has sent input to the European Commission on its upcoming
seven-year flagship program for research funding. Under the "Horizon
2020" program, the European Commission will support research and
development in Europe with 80 billion Euro from 2014 to 2020.
The goal of <a href="/news/2011/news-20111128-02.html">FSFE's
contribution</a> is to help the EC maximise the social value Europeans
obtain from the Horizon 2020 program, which is funded out of the taxes
they have paid.
Key points of FSFE's input:
<li>Distributed systems and cryptography are key areas which should
receive R and D funding. They will be essential to preserving users'
freedoms in a world of networked services.</li>
<li> Results obtained from publicly funded research should be
accessible to the public, and should be available for re-use.</li>
<li>Administrative hurdles to obtaining funding under Horizon 2020
should be lowered, in order to make access easier for small
companies, organisations, and individuals.</li>
FSFE will continue to engage with the European institutions in order
to support the development
of <a href="/news/2011/news-20111128-02.html">Horizon 2020</a>.
