Minister Stefania Giannini at the Informal Meeting of the Research Ministers of the European Union held in Milan
“Building the European Research Area is a great ambition. And it is our responsibility to make this ambition a result. The new social, cultural and economic Renaissance that Europe must achieve now depends on our common effort to keep, upgrade and integrate the endowment of research infrastructures. In all different fields, from Humanities to Physics, from BioMedical to Environmental. I am sure that our discussion today will be fruitful and provide good elements of reflections for our future policies" said Minister Stefania Giannini at the Informal Meeting of the Research Ministers of the European Union held in Milan.
“As European Member States, we all are called to work jointly to plan a well distributed and effective Research Infrastructures system, to focus on very advanced undertakings, and to avoid unnecessary duplication. This means – stated the Minister for Education, University and research - to coordinate and pool in a more effective way national and European resources to promote excellence, with a view of long-term sustainability and competiveness”.
