Research in Europe
Research is important to us all. Some research is undertaken to improve the lives of everyone, some is undertaken to improve the competitiveness of an organisation, safeguarding jobs and some is undertaken to extend the boundaries of human understanding.
Whatever the reason for the research, it touches all our lives, even if most of it is undertaken behind closed doors. European Researchers’ Night is an attempt to demystify research and show how it is having an impact on all our lives.
Good research depends on, among other things, strong partnerships and significant funding.
This section shows how the European Commission is supporting research across Europe.
