BioMed Alliance and Horizon 2020 evaluation survey
Under the umbrella of the Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) a dedicated Task Force has been appointed with the role of monitoring the framework programme Horizon 2020. There is an urgent need for the biomedical research community to be a strong and relevant voice in this evaluation process and to provide the European Commission with insights and recommendations. BioMed Alliance are now launching a survey to monitor and collect experiences with applying for and implementing Horizon 2020 projects.
We need your input to improve Horizon 2020 and the next Research and Innovation Framework Programme of the European Union.
The European Commission is planning the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 which will be crucial to the future of biomedical research funding in Europe. To influence this process, we, the biomedical research community, must feed your and your colleagues’ experiences and opinions with Horizon 2020 into this evaluation.
- The survey should take approximately 10 minutes of your time.
- Please ask your colleagues to fill out this survey as well. This makes the survey better and increases the volume of our ‘voice’.
- Your input will help us to provide European institutions with strategic recommendations.
- We look forward to receiving your answers no later than 30 November 2015.
So, if you have or have had any experience with Horizon 2020, you are kindly asked to fill out the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/H2020evaluation
Thank you for your support.
With kind regards, sincerely,
Prof. Alberico L. Catapano, President of EAS
Prof. Ulrich Jäger, member of the BioMed Alliance Board of Directors and chair of the Monitoring Horizon 2020 Task Force
