Series of webinars on ERA values



EURAXESS LAC, in cooperation with the EU Delegation in Brazil invites to a series of webinars on the European Research Area (ERA)’s values ​​and principles of international cooperation in research and innovation.

These values, expressed in the European Commission’s Global Approach Communication in 2021, were reiterated in the Marseille Declaration in 2022.


The global approach to research and innovation reconfirms Europe's commitment to a level of global openness that is needed to drive excellence, pool resources to achieve scientific progress and develop vibrant innovation ecosystems. In view of this goal, the EU will work with international partners to create a common understanding of fundamental principles and values in research and innovation, such as academic freedom, gender equality, research ethics, open science and evidence-based policymaking.
