Table 2 – Themes for action included in the ERA concept in 2000

The concept of a European Research Area introduced in the document aimed to
address this ‘fragmentation, isolation and compartmentalisation of national research
systems’ and ‘the lack of coordination in the manner in which national and European
research policies are implemented’. Despite the engagement of the Council in 1974, the
Commission considered that all of these actions remained to be done in order to
achieve tangible coordination of national and EU research policies. In order to move
forward, the Commission proposed seven dimensions on which efforts have to be
targeted (see table 2). This included research infrastructures and the mobility and
careers of researchers, two topics already introduced in 1972.
