In our “The Future of research and innovation” statement we support the notion that cities should have a stronger presence in the agenda of the FP9 programme, since it is in the cities where the research and innovation happen. For enabling a supporting environment for the innovation to grow and flourish, in the FP9 programme the city authorities must be involved as partners in the design of the next programmmes. They need to be considered as drivers of innovation, they need to get further support on capacity building, as well as their local needs must be reflected in the next programme.
