250 employees

(96 PhD, 70 PhD students)

Budget ~12 mio € (20 % industry)

R&D intensity (GERD as % of GDP) in the major world regions, 1995-2005

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

We have proved ourselves that we are able to learn from you! Professor Huanming Yang Beijing Genomic Institute

 

Attractiveness as R&D locations Source: Wall Street Journal Europe, March 2006

Ways to improve atractivness for R&D in Europe World-class research infrastructures Excellent research institutions: critical mass of resources, autonomy Competent researchers: education, mobility People with great ideas are not enough for scientific and industrial breakthroughs. Scientist need modern research equipment!

World-class research infrastructures

Excellent research institutions: critical mass of resources, autonomy

Competent researchers: education, mobility

Lucia Banci, CERM, Florence, Italy Manfred S. Weiss, EMBL Hamburg Outstation At present there is not adequate research infrastructure available in many EU regions.

R&D intensity (GERD as % of GDP), 2005 Key Figures 2007

Source: Key Figures 2003-2004 (European Commission) R&D Expenditure per researcher in EU varies significantly

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!!

Example of a good practise: European Centre of Excellence at NIC (2000) Lucia Banci, CERM, Florence, Italy NIC, Ljubljana, Slovenia Slovenian NMR Centre Collaborations

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

Reasearchers from abroad Investment into RI mobility= f (research infrastructure)

Mobility Academia Industry Encourage mobility in both directions Mobility within EU, World Better support free circulation of researchers (procedures for visas, family-friendly measures) Example ERC call (only 10 % intend to move to another country)

Academia Industry

Encourage mobility in both directions

Mobility within EU, World

Better support free circulation of researchers

(procedures for visas, family-friendly measures)

Example ERC call (only 10 % intend to move to another country)

New research and technology powers are emerging in the world Research resources in Europe should be increased- a radical improvement of the finantial base is needed Structural funds should be channeled into infrastructure for research L arge-scale RI ( ESFRI Roadmap) should be supported and well distributed across Europe Europe should better encourage mobility (academia-industry, across institutions and countries) Conclusion

New research and technology powers are emerging in the world

Research resources in Europe should be increased-

a radical improvement of the finantial base is needed

Structural funds should be channeled into infrastructure for research

L arge-scale RI ( ESFRI Roadmap) should be supported and well distributed

across Europe

Europe should better encourage mobility

(academia-industry, across institutions and countries)
