Carlos Moedas,  European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation outlines his vison for the next phase of the European Research Area (ERA). Mr Moedas also outlined the Commission's strategic priortities for the full implementation of a European Research Area built on the principles of "Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World." He states: "Cross-border research cooperation has become a wonderful, every-day reality. Mobility is also becoming a normal part of the career of every researcher. Around one in three EU researchers have been internationally  mobile over the last 10 years. There has been an eight-fold increase in the number of jobs advertised on the EURAXESS site since 2007, with around 10 000 job offers on any given day. Today, we have a single, integrated European programme for research and innovation." More here.
