Upon the initiative of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office an expert group is taking part in the elaboration of the Hungarian position paper regarding the content and strategic orientations of the 9th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9) to be launched in 2021.

As the national coordinator of Horizon 2020 policy activities in Hungary, the NRDI Office has started to sum up the lessons learned from Hungarian participation in the framework programmes and identify the future strategic directions and priorities for Hungary. The expert group consists of experienced, acclaimed stakeholders from academia and industry as well as policymakers who are familiar with both domestic and international RDI policies and with the evolution of the EU research and innovation framework programmes over the years.

Amongst the issues the expert group will address are the questions of structure and governance, opportunities for widening participation, future forms of cooperation as well as horizontal aspects (e.g. open science).

As a result of 2-3 of its meetings, the expert group is expected to elaborate the draft FP9 position paper by November 2017. However, the NRDI Office will also count on further contribution from the group in the future, as dedicated discussions about the content and legal framework of FP9 will continuously be held during 2018-2020.
