    On 16 February 2017, the European Parliament adopted its report on the European Cloud Initiative. Proposed by the European Commission, the Cloud Initiative aims to strengthen Europe's position in data-driven innovation, improve its competitiveness and cohesion, and help create a Digital Single Market in Europe.

    Some 40 major European organisations involved in science, including EUA, have issued an open letter to European governments and the presidents of the EU Council and Commission asking them to uphold the principles and values that underpin scientific progress and to work with the US administration to maintain a global science system based on these principles.

    As a contribution to the ongoing mid-term evaluation of the Erasmus+ Programme (2014-2020), the “EUA member consultation: A contribution to the Erasmus+ mid-term review” found that the Programme has brought a number of improvements compared to its predecessors. However, the report also highlights areas for improvement, for which EUA proposes 10 recommendations for enhancing Erasmus+ in 2020 and beyond.

    EUA issued a statement on 30 January 2017 calling on US President Donald Trump to rethink or recall a controversial executive order that immediately and unnecessary affected the movement of international researchers, university faculty and students from seven Muslim-majority countries.

    EUA has updated its response to the European Commission’s proposal for a directive on copyright to further underline the importance of an EU copyright reform that truly supports the needs of research, innovation and education in the digital age at universities and beyond.

    2016 was a stormy year, and the blows can be felt clearly in the university world. The dynamics of Brexit, the Trump presidency, and growing nationalism will continue to be present in the time to come.
