What is the Conference on the Future of Europe? The Conference on the Future of Europe is a unique and timely opportunity for European citizens to debate on Europe’s challenges and priorities. No matter where you are from or what you do, this is the place to think about what future you want for the European Union. The European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission have committed to listen to Europeans and to follow up, within their sphere of competences, on the recommendations made. By spring 2022, the Conference is expected to reach conclusions and provide guidance on the future of Europe. https://futureu.europa.eu/pages/about What is the idea? "In the US, Australia and Canada governments have provided funds to stimulate scientific research into ME/CFS. In an open letter, 115 scientists called on the EU to “align itself with international developments by issuing a long-term commitment to invest in biomedical research into ME.” The clinical picture of patients who develop long-lasting and debilitating symptoms after COVID-19 are often similar to those seen in ME/CFS. This indicates the importance of investing in research on postviral conditions. What is urgently needed are funding opportunities within Horizon Europe with a focus on the pathomechanisms of severe, poorly understood illnesses with few treatment options and a high disease burden." https://futureu.europa.eu/processes/Health/f/3/proposals/1352?locale=en How to endorse the idea?
