On June 7th 2018, The European Commission released its draft proposal for Horizon Europe (FP9). There is a short window of just a few weeks in which the public and interested parties can suggest changes to what the Commission will fund for the next six years. ASDC are joining with our European and Ecsite colleagues to advocate with MEPs and the European Parliament for the central need to engage the public with the latest science.
ASDC are asking all CEOs and Senior Managers to write a letter to their local MEP or colleagues in the UK government with an interest in this area within the next week or two (4th - 22nd of July) to champion the need for public engagement in Horizon Europe. Here you will find advice on what to include in your letter of support.
