Abstract: The concept of the European Research Area, as originally defined, promoted increased co-ordination and cooperation among national research policies and programmes. Later on it was complemented by another ambitious objective, that of realising the fifth "freedom of movement" within Europe. Both objectives require the construction and implementation of effective instruments. This third edition of the ERA Fabric Map reflects on instruments in two steps. It first analyses the current main policy programmes and instruments and their historical development thus delving into the mechanisms that actually shape the research and innovation scene in Europe. It then adopts a prospective point of view and analyses the four scenarios developed by the VERA consortium from an instrument perspective. It highlights the policy programmes and instruments that need to be in place to sustain them, and compares them to those currently in place in Europe and the rest of the world. This third version of the ERA Fabric Map complements the first two editions by adding an instrument perspective and a forward-looking dimension.
