EU-LIFE congratulate Commissioner Moedas and DG Research for initiating the public debate regarding the creation of an EIC and would like to highlight the potential of an EIC as an extraordinary opportunity for a paradigm shift at two levels:

EU-LIFE strongly welcomes the position of the European Parliament committees made public on 20th April about the Strategic Investment Fund - EFSI or “Juncker Plan” - where Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) defended the protection of the EU budget earmarked for research.  However, if this position fails to reach the final EFSI legislation, the future of innovation in Europe and the goal of enforcing the EU as a leading knowledge economy will be at imminent risk.
