Yes, PASOK supports the idea that the multiannual financial framework (MFF) should represent a larger share of the EU’s GDP than it currently does. Increasing the MFF would enable the EU to undertake more ambitious projects, especially in critical areas such as research and innovation. These projects are essential for addressing significant societal challenges, fostering economic growth, and ensuring the EU’s competitive edge on the global stage. Moreover, PASOK believes that both the Union and the member states should accelerate efforts to move closer to the 3% GDP goal for investment in research and innovation. Achieving this target would enhance the EU’s capacity to generate cutting-edge knowledge and technologies, support sustainable development, and create high-quality jobs. It would also help bridge the gap with leading global competitors like the USA and China, ensuring that the EU remains a leader in innovation and a hub for scientific excellence.
