Science and Policy: EU-LIFE's Strategy Group met in Berlin

The EU-LIFE Strategy Group, which includes the Directors of the EU-LIFE member institutes, its main representatives and the chairs of EU-LIFE working Groups met at the MDC in Berlin, back to back with the EU-LIFE Scientific Meeting.

After two days of outstanding scientific talks on the Principles of Homeostasis, the Strategy group of EU-LIFE met to discuss priority topics in European policy: the next Framework programme (FP9) and the key priorities for open science.

The group analysed EU-LIFE’s ongoing actions and discussed detailed messages for policy makers on the upcoming FP, open access, the European Science Cloud, FAIR data and altmetrics/research evaluation.
