Globalization Challenges for Science and Technology in Europe

  1. 1. Globalization challenges for Science and Technology in Europe Towards Lisbon 2.1, September 28, 2007 Dr. Peter VENTURINI
  2. 2. National Institute of Chemistry Slovenia <ul><li>NANOTECHNOLOGY MATERIALS </li></ul><ul><li>BIOTECHNOLOGY </li></ul><ul><li>HEALTH, FOOD </li></ul><ul><li>ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION </li></ul>RESEARCH AREAS <ul><li>250 employees </li></ul><ul><li>(96 PhD, 70 PhD students) </li></ul><ul><li>Budget ~12 mio € (20 % industry) </li></ul>2006 / 1999; 79 % increase 350 nm
  3. 3. R&D intensity (GERD as % of GDP) in the major world regions, 1995-2005
  4. 4. China & EU If current trends persist, it is expected that China will have caught up with EU-27 by 2009 in terms of R&D intensity. The European Commission Key figures 200 7
  5. 5.     Competition in science is competition for talent. President Jiang Zemin, Science, June 2000
  6. 6. Source: China Statistical Yearbook, The Economist , October 2006
  7. 7. We have proved ourselves that we are able to learn from you! Professor Huanming Yang Beijing Genomic Institute
  8. 9. Attractiveness as R&D locations Source: Wall Street Journal Europe, March 2006
  9. 10. Ways to improve atractivness for R&D in Europe <ul><li>World-class research infrastructures </li></ul><ul><li>Excellent research institutions: critical mass of resources, autonomy </li></ul><ul><li>Competent researchers: education, mobility </li></ul>People with great ideas are not enough for scientific and industrial breakthroughs. Scientist need modern research equipment!
  10. 11. Lucia Banci, CERM, Florence, Italy Manfred S. Weiss, EMBL Hamburg Outstation At present there is not adequate research infrastructure available in many EU regions.
  11. 12. R&D intensity (GERD as % of GDP), 2005 Key Figures 2007
  12. 13. Source: Key Figures 2003-2004 (European Commission) R&D Expenditure per researcher in EU varies significantly
  13. 14. European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) European roadmap for Research Infrastructures (2006) New, large- scale RI is needed and should be distributed all over Europe!!
  14. 15. Example of a good practise: European Centre of Excellence at NIC (2000) Lucia Banci, CERM, Florence, Italy NIC, Ljubljana, Slovenia Slovenian NMR Centre Collaborations
  15. 16. New research infrastructure (2005) Industry Structural funds National funds University of Ljubljana University of Maribor Academia Total investment ~ 4 mio € PARTNERSHIP X-ray powder diffractometer Electron microscope with EDS analysis 800 MHz NMR Spectrometer MINISTRY OF HIGHER EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY REPUBLIC OF SLOVENIA
  16. 17. Reasearchers from abroad Investment into RI mobility= f (research infrastructure)
  17. 18. Mobility <ul><li>Academia Industry </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Encourage mobility in both directions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mobility within EU, World </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Better support free circulation of researchers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(procedures for visas, family-friendly measures) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example ERC call (only 10 % intend to move to another country) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  18. 19. <ul><li>New research and technology powers are emerging in the world </li></ul><ul><li>Research resources in Europe should be increased- </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a radical improvement of the finantial base is needed </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Structural funds should be channeled into infrastructure for research </li></ul><ul><li>L arge-scale RI ( ESFRI Roadmap) should be supported and well distributed </li></ul><ul><li>across Europe </li></ul><ul><li>Europe should better encourage mobility </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(academia-industry, across institutions and countries) </li></ul></ul>Conclusion
