ERA-LEARN survey on the national experience in Horizon Europe Partnerships

With this survey we would like to learn about the experience of national stakeholders involved in the European Partnerships. Our goal is to investigate challenges and benefits of various stakeholders’ participation in these types of programmes and explore matters such as:

- Criteria for selection of partnerships by participating members states

- Roles of participating organisations

- Type of stakeholder involvement

- Measures supporting participation of Widening and less performing countries

- Learning needs of participating organisations

- Use of Cohesion Policy (or IPA) funds

A special focus of this survey is to investigate participation of the Widening and less performing countries in the European Partnerships. Enhancing participation of this group of countries is highlighted by the EU in the Openness and Transparency principle. One important component of this principle is to strengthen the European Research Area through Sharing Excellence and Widening Participation in all pillars of Horizon Europe, and through the Partnership instrument. With this survey we want to find out what measures supporting inclusion of the Widening Countries have been implemented and learn more about the roles of this group of countries in the European Partnerships.

Your response to this survey is very important to properly diagnose the engagement of both Widening and non-Widening Countries in the European Partnerships. Completing this survey requires providing data regarding your organisation’s participation in Horizon Europe’s Partnerships and may involve internal consultations in your organisation. A special emphasis in this survey is put on the Openness and Transparency and participation of the Widening Countries the European Partnerships. Based on the results of this survey we plan to prepare a report on the first experience of national stakeholders in the European Partnerships. This report will also include best practices and recommendations for the Widening & non-Widening Countries and the European Commission which can serve to enhance participation of Widening Countries in the European Partnerships and thus strengthen the European Research Area.
