Effectiveness of EU research and innovation proposals

The Internal Market, Infrastructure and Employment Sub-Committee of the House of Lords European Union Committee, chaired by Baroness O’Cathain, published its report into The Effectiveness of EU Research and Innovation Proposals on 30 April 2013.

Chair of the Committee, Baroness O’Cathain, said:

“During the past year, we investigated a number of EU proposals for projects and strategies that place a significant emphasis on research and innovation. These included initiatives such as the EU ‘smart cities’ innovation partnership and the completion of the European research area.

“Through our scrutiny of these and other relevant proposals, we discovered some cross-cutting issues that have relevance to a number of EU plans and initiatives. The Committee decided to pull this information together and use it as the basis for an inquiry, into the effectiveness of EU research and innovation proposals."
