Positive outcome of the open letter adding “research” to the title of the Commissioner Designate Mariya Gabriel
The letter stated that without dedication to education and research there will neither exist a sound basis for innovation in Europe, nor can we fulfill the promise of a high standard of living for the citizens of Europe in a fierce global competition.
We are happy to inform you that the title of Commissioner-Designate Mariya Gabriel has been changed to include a reference to research.
Future European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced this morning in the European Parliament that Gabriel’s new title will be: ‘Commissioner for Research, Innovation, Education, Culture & Youth’.
EAN also supported the open letter sent by the BioMed Alliance.
