The public consultation on the future EU research & innovation framework programme closed in May. Many of the priorities included in the Euratex & Textranet position papers are also highlighted in the consultation results just published by the EC. These include administrative simplification, better access for industry, especially SME’s and the maintenance of successful elements such as collaborative research funding and the support for European Technology Platforms. In the process also a new name for the next programme has been fund, based on public vote: HORIZON 2020—the Framework Programme for Research & Innovation. More information at:

1st Public PROsumer.NET Seminar, 22 June 2011, Brussels

Towards a roadmap on future Research & Innovation needs in the European Consumer Goods Industries

The 1-day event featured a broad range of presentations from industry, leading researchers and the European Commission. The seminar follows in the footsteps of the 1st European Conumer Goods Research Conference organised by the same stakeholders in February 2010. The draft research and innovation roadmap resulting from this first event will be further developed in much more breadth and depth by the 2-years PROsumer.NET project.
This seminar prepared the ground for the roadmapping work of the PROsumer.NET pro-ject over the next 2 years and represented a first occasion to connect and network with industry and research experts from across several consumer goods sectors, also beyond those covered by the 5 involved technology platforms.
