ERA Fabric Map – Second Edition




This ERA fabric map gives a snapshot of the ERA today. It looks at the division of responsibilities between EU and Member States, and at institutions and bodies involved in the European research system. Starting from the 5 ERA priorities described in the ERA Communication 2012, the report then looks at where we are today, and which direction the future is taking, given the policy context of the Europe 2020 strategy and the incoming Multiannual Programming Framework 2014-2020. The key contribution of the report is to map the evolution of the ERA highlighting the elements of continuity and discontinuity between two key documents, the 2007 ERA-Green Paper and the 2012 ERA Communication. This second version of the ERA fabric map updates the first ERA fabric map. As with the first edition, the main objectives are to provide strategic knowledge for the governance of the research, technology, development and innovation (RTDI) system in Europe. It also provides input for the implementation of the 'Visions for the ERA' (VERA) project by giving a snapshot of the ERA today, in support of developing alternative future scenarios for its evolution.
