Research and innovation are one of the most important priorities of the Europe 2020 strategy which put of R&I as a pillar of economic growth and development.

Indeed, the next programming period 2014-2020 provides an important strategic plan to support research and innovation. In this sector, European subsidies will be paid through the Horizon 2020 program.
 
This new strategy is based on five objectives:

- At the European level research and innovation must allow access and openness to new markets and to increase competitiveness of Europe
- Research and innovation must take into account the demographic changes in Europe: social integration, migration and its impact on the environment, aging population and health system.
- In order to be adapted to climate change, research and innovation must: adapt to natural hazards, fight against climate change and its multisectoral impact (effects on agriculture, fisheries, tourism, health), and work for energy efficiency.
- Moving to a clean economy: reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, to develop clean technology
- To use innovation to exit from the crisis: employment, growth ...

In the implementation of support for research and innovation, given the disparities in development, the EU has emphasized the regional approach (RIS: Regional Strategy). This level of approach will improve the link between universities, research centers, companies narrowly.
The new approach should involve all European regions with a common outlook to implement the Regional Strategy, allowing the implementation of the second stage of the strategy for research and innovation: the Intelligent Specialization (IS). Each region will specialize in a particular field of activity, based on its strengths, weaknesses, needs and opportunities of the market.
The SRI-IS approach is a commitment that should enable the regional economic development through this approach of specialization at the local level, which also means to identify perks and competitors, to adapt to market needs, to cooperate with various partners such as universities, regions, research centers, companies. All these entities must be related and support the development of a specific area. To avoid duplication of activities among various regions, it is necessary to promote technological diversification.
The research and the innovation must go beyond the strict technology to integrate and act on social needs: the personal services, living conditions and working conditions, and the support to culture and toward the creative sector.
The Common Strategic Framework should facilitate the establishment of multi-sectoral and cross-development of innovation. Horizon 2020, which includes all previous funding programs of research and innovation, will give a comprehensive and holistic approach to this orientation.
