4 PROGRESS TOWARDS ERA (1) General target of 3% of GDP? Present estimate ~ 2% FP7 – excellence, coherence, simplification Bottlenecks: shortage of people, state of infrastructure, need for coherent R&D policy

5 PROGRESS TOWARDS ERA (2) Academies:  The influence of the progress of globalization was not taken fully into account when the strategy of ERA was designed  Societal dimension and culture of innovation – more attention  Bureaucratic processes, both local and European level, hinder progress


7 PLATFORM EUROPEAN S & T ORGANISATIONS (PESTO) 21 organisations have formed a platform for:  to set up informal network  to set up a dialogue with relevant stakeholders  to strengthen interaction with policy makers  to use the network to find joint solutions for common problems

25 PARADOX OF DEVELOPMENT Society wants results – problem solving Scientist wants freedom – new knowledge Balance science – society Wisdom of society – think about the future Responsibility of scientists – think about the society

26 NETWORK OF THE FP7 “It is very difficult to make an accurate prediction, especially about the future” Niels Bohr Major concern of ALLEA and its members – the road to the future
