Establishing Horizon Europe – laying down its rules for participation and dissemination (A8-0401/2018 - Dan Nica)

  Andrejs Mamikins (S&D). – Mr President, scientific research helped us to satisfy citizens’ priorities, both productivity and competitiveness. For centuries, ‘made in Europe’ has been a symbol of quality and knowhow. I even dare to say that the excellence in science, technology and the arts became a component of the EU’s normative power.

I support the proposal for a regulation on Horizon Europe and the report drafted by colleague, Dan Nica. This proposal serves the consolidation of the European Research Area and is going to deliver new jobs in science and research.

As a socialist and democrat, I defend the principle of open science and I believe that the diffusion of innovation makes the EU a unique scientific hub. However, we need to guarantee that our scientists choose to stay in Europe, because countries such as the United States, Canada and Australia appear attractive to researchers from Europe due to their larger innovation intensity and better social conditions. That is why we have to defend our social conditions in Europe.
