1 Carlos Alejaldre Director General Technology Policy, Ministry Education and Science, Spain 11 November 2005 Experience at Member States Level with Strategic Research Agendas (includ. PPPs) Spain
2 Outline Main challenges of the Spanish economy & the Science – Technology – Business System Inmediate response - on going PPPs actions. Medium term response: INGENIO 2010 Program. Description Objectives Conclusions
3 Real convergence in employment rate, but… still far from the Lisbon objectives Divergence in productivity Still significant gap in Technological indicators Competitiveness lose and inflation gap Challenges of the Spanish economy
4 The Spanish Science-Technology- Business System Catching up process in R&D and Innovation indicators but at low rate Bigger gap in GERD (52% aver.EU) than in GDP (85%). Still Insufficient share of GERD financed & performed by the business sector. Low BERD in relation to industrial added value. Business participation in national programmes dominated by SMEs.
5 The Spanish S-T-B System Insufficient Human Resources in R&D (84% aver. EU), mostly in Business sector (27% vs 49%) High increase in the scientific production of Spanish researches with moderate impact (SCI). Very low patent level. Few EPO and triad patents obtained by Spanish residents.
6 Running actions for PPPs Generation of knowledge Scientific Publications Generation of technology Patents Universities Tecnology Centers Scientific Parks Public Research Centers Role of the Directorate-General for Technology Policy (DGPT): linking across RTD agents Scientific and technological infrastructures Science-Technology- Business System Enterprises
7 OBJECTIVES R&D Boosting Investment In 2005, the public budget allocations for civil R&D&I grew 27%. In the budget proposal for 2006 an increase of 31% has been approved. Government´s commitment to maintain a minimum annual increase of 25% until More balanced increase between financial (credits & loans) and non financial (subsidies) public spending More ambitious goals R&D Intensity of 1,4% in BERD share of 59% in GERD. Total researchers (FTE) per thousand of labour force: 5,4 (5,9 in EU) 100 NTBF per year from the public sector in 2007 (3 times the 2003 figure). 600 new researches positions in the private sector (2 times the 2003 figure) Information Society Convergence Plan: 7% of GDP devoted to IT in 2009 (from 4,8% in 2004)
