In its Communication “A new ERA for Research and Innovation”, the Commission proposed four, either new or renewed, R&D investment targets in order to prioritise investments and reforms in research and innovation towards the green and digital transitions, support Europe's recovery and increase its competitiveness. This policy brief provides: (i) an initial analysis on the EU and Member States’ performance in relation to the targets; (ii) initial background to nurture the debate on how Member States (and Associated Countries) could join up their R&I investments and possibly develop ambitious joint funding actions in strategic areas of common interest (i.e. give more “directionality” to R&I investments).
