Jyrki Katainen added (about Frans Timmermans): "Circular economy and sustainable finance are examples of the innovative European way to ensure growth and investment that do not harm our planet and our people, in all areas of the economy. The launch of the Platform is another milestone in this path. We need the experience that the Platform members bring to help us deliver results in this field”. The creation of the High-Level Stakeholders' Platform coincides with discussions in Brussels on the ‘mission-oriented’ approach that could be adopted under FP9 (next framework programme on research and innovation). The High Level Group on maximising the impact of European research and innovation, which worked out recommendations for FP9, advises to “set research and innovation missions that address global challenges and mobilise researchers, innovators and other stakeholders to realise them” and to use the UN SDGs as a global reference framework for defining those missions (LAB – FAB – APP: Investing in the European future we want). Since then, reference to the UN SDGs is almost always made when the mission-oriented approach is discussed in Brussels.
