The new European Research Area (ERA) policy paper with the Horizon Europe programme will change the continent’s Research and Innovation (R&I) ecosystems. With the support of several member states, decision-makers in European Institutions see Open Science as a key to a globally competitive European R&I system. Its success, however, also requires dedication from the national and local levels and a change in how researchers work. Interdisciplinary, collaborative approaches are becoming crucial in the new era of European research, while enhanced support and emphasis on connecting R&I leading and lagging countries can release new synergies. This article briefly introduces new tools and opportunities to help policymakers and young researchers increase their positive impact.
