The lead up to May's meeting of the heads of Europe's research councils, Eurohorcs, looks promising for European Research Commissioner Philippe Busquin's proposed European Research Area (ERA). Avoiding duplication of research programmes and providing better coordination of the national research programmes could make a major, and desirable, contribution to the ERA, Eurohorcs has announced.

The details of how this process will work will figure highly on the agenda of the forthcoming Stockholm meeting, which Mr Busquin will attend. Negotiations will also focus on increasing the mobility of researchers in Europe, creating a better role for women, making Europe a researcher-friendly environment and analysis of ethical issues.

The conclusion of the meeting should lead to a statement from Eurohorcs on its priorities in creating the ERA.
