Objective of the consultation
In 2018, the Commission will make comprehensive proposals for the next generation of financial programmes for the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework, which is the EU's long–term budget. The Commission's proposals will be designed to make it possible for the EU to deliver on the things that matter most. This requires a careful assessment both of what has worked well in the past and what could be improved in the future. This consultation is an integral part of the process and its objective is to collect the views of all interested parties. Aside from research and innovation, this consultation also addresses investment, SMEs and single market topics.
The Commission will summarise the replies after the end of the consultation period. Your replies will be taken into account when designing comprehensive proposals for the post -2020 Multiannual Financial Framework and for the next generation of financial programmes.
The views expressed by stakeholders in these consultations will be taken into account as part of the current process for the future Multiannual Financial Framework.
All individuals, organisations and stakeholders with an interest and/or involvement in issues related to investment, entrepreneurship, research, innovation and SMEs are welcome to respond to this consultation.
Participation deadline: 8 March
