On 13 July 2023, the Commission unveiled a comprehensive set of measures targeted at strengthening the European Research Area (ERA) and making it more resilient, appealing, and competitive. These will contribute to a priority action of the ERA Policy Agenda 2022-2024, namely to promote attractive and sustainable research careers.
The set of measures includes:
- A proposal for a Council Recommendation that establishes a new European framework for research careers;
- A new Charter for Researchers, replacing the 2005 Charter and Code for Researchers with new and revised principles;
- The European Competence Framework for Researchers (ResearchComp), to support inter-sectoral mobility of researchers.
