Petition Against EU Funding Cuts

As you probably already know, cuts are being made by the EU to competitive funding avenues, such as research and innovation. Such funding is key to creating jobs throughout the EU, however they are instead choosing to focus on funding areas such as agriculture and cohesion, which will not generate nearly as many jobs and will certainly not see Europe supporting the ideas and science of the future.

Some suggest that the Horizon 2020 budget could fall below £70billion which, whilst it seems significantly more than the £55billion offered for its predecessor FP7, doesn’t take into account other increasing costs, such as rising inflation.

As the discussion the surrounding budget cuts to Horizon2020 continues, we can make our small voices heard by signing the following petition and getting involved.
