In order to remain a leading player in our increasingly competitive world, Europe needs to boost innovation and research. The European Commission has proposed 80 billion euros in spending for the next seven years. But as EU leaders are debating sharp reductions to the EU budget, scientists are urging politicians to keep their budgetary knives away from research funding.
With our guests:
- Tunne Kelam, Estonian MEP, European People's Party;
- Dimitrios Droutsas, Greek MEP, Socialists and Democrats
