ERA Progress Two strands of work : –Prepare debates on the quality of the monitoring instruments (survey, statistics, NRPs, other…) –Prepare debates on the policy issues First dead-line : the ERAC opinion expected on the progress report for this autumn (ad-hoc group meeting in July to prepare this ?)
Research and innovation observatory The observatory covers a broad range of issues and qualitative and quantitative evidence ERAC needs to reflect on the policy maker needs regarding the observatory
The way forward ERAC needs a main debate on the work plan of the ad-hoc group : ad-hoc meeting 12th of june (before the ERAC meeting) ? Meanwhile -> written comments on both of the documents (workplan and milestones) In general : back to back meetings with ERAC that reflect on methods, outputs, main milestones (not duplicate the ERAC debates)
Next steps European Semester : can we agree on the production of a policy input based on an analyses of the NRPs to be circulated end of May ? Monitoring ERA : can we agree on an ad- hoc meeting on the evidence that feeds the ERA progress report (end of june ?) in order to prepare the ERAC advice on ERA progress ?
