On 23 March 2021, the European Commission launched a 12-week public consultation to seek input from stakeholders (including Universities and Research Organizations) and individuals in shaping a new legal instrument to deter and counteract coercive practices by non-EU countries. The definition of coercive practices is a central question for the initiative and the Commission is currently seeking input from stakeholders to further define them.
The input received will serve the Commission in developing its legislative proposal to be adopted by the end of this year.
The consultation is available until 15 June 2021. Have your say, join the open Public Consultation.
