SIR* World Report 2012 INDICATORS • Output • International Collaboration • Normalized Impact • High Quality Publications • Specialization Index (Gini index) • Excellence Rate • 3290 Research Institutions (strong criteria) • more than 80% of the world scientific output (2006-2010) (Global Ranking KU Leuven 68 (universities 32) - European Ranking KU Leuven 5) *Scimago Institutions Rankings M.Hinoul
  4. 4. Barosso’s dream (or nightmare) for 2020  75% of the active population should be employed in 2020 –Today in 2013 it is only 66%- A long way to go.  3% of the European GDP should be spent on R&D .  Today it is only 1,9%  One percent extra means an extra of 180 Bi€  One percent means also an extra 700.000 engineers and scientists.  R&D fine but how good is the valorization of the European research?  20/20/20 in 2020: Reducing green house gas emissions with 20% (level 1990) Energy reduction minus 20% Alternative Energy plus 20% M.Hinoul
