  28. 28. Culture The good, the bad, and the ugly The Missionary The Mercenary
  29. 29. Culture The good, the bad, and the ugly What the missionaries say and don’t say: • “All projects end successfully” • “We need more money” • Facilitates cooperation and research across EU borders • Supports European research community, ERA • Targets EU industry competitiveness • Some success stories
  30. 30. Culture The good, the bad, and the ugly What the mercenaries say and don’t say: • “All projects end successfully” • “We need more money” • Proposal phase strategies • Disappointing results • Exploitation below potential
  31. 31. Culture The good, the bad, and the ugly What EC says and doesn’t say: • “All projects end successfully” • “We need more money” • Results are due to evaluators and/or reviewers and thanks to <fill in favourite here>… • Business as usual • Reputation risk
  32. 32. Culture The good, the bad, and the ugly Taking into account • “There is no point telling the devil he’s bad” • Co-dependence and co-evolution Some suggestions • Not everything can be successful – Annual termination of worst project(s) – Distribute savings among the best project(s) • Getting the “right” proposals (kind of tricky) – “Interpret WP” with workshops – “Focus WP” by summarising domain / workshops – Spread the word • Do not favour the incumbents – Stop “counselling” process after call is opened – Technology providers as technology providers, not end users • Instruct evaluators in evaluation criteria interpretation – Do not overly penalise on “correctable” issues – Let a hundred flowers blossom • Get serious or get out
  33. 33. And now what? WE have a problem! What are YOU going to do about it?
  34. 34. Conclusions Research means change so research means change • Research is a means to an end • Research modalities change to (better) reach the ends • What research contents is needed to reach the ends? • How to address cultural issues? • Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do
  35. 35. Questions?
