Boon or burden: what has the EU ever done for science?
Nature examines five core ways that the European Union shapes the course of research.

Have your say: contribute to improving the Start-Up Ecosystem in Europe
Between 31st March and 31st July 2016, the European Commission is collecting the opinions of entrepreneurs, start-uppers and stakeholders on how to improve the start-up ecosystem in Europe through a public consultation.
It might sound surprising to many readers, but the European Commission does encourage participation of US researchers and organisations in research and innovation projects funded under selected sub-pillars of Horizon 2020.
Until now, 62 Horizon 2020 projects have involved US organisations or researchers on a wide range of topics: nine in Excellent Science, including four ERC funded projects; 12 in the pillar of Industrial Leadership, 39 in the Societal Challenges pillar; one in Science with and for Society, and one under Euratom.
Whether you are a European organisation willing to involve a US institution, or conversely a US organisation wishing to be part of the European research and innovation landscape, the following set of advice might be useful for you.
