EERA and other research associations have therefore endorsed a manifesto asking to recognize research and research based innovation as the main drivers of EU competitiveness and growth.

The central message of the response of the European Educational Research Association (EERA) to the High Level Group’s recommendations is that EERA is happy with the inclusion of the third recommendation about education. However, we consider that the background of this recommendation is too limited and that, unfortunately, the vital role of educational research for improving education and society has been ignored. We believe an opportunity is being missed to incorporate within the 9th Framework the role of education and educational research as a critical source of solutions for the great societal challenges of our times; (youth) unemployment, migration, terrorism, (social) inequalities, and political extremism.
