3 The European Paradox: the case of The Netherlands High Public Research and Low Private R&D High Quality Public Research (Nl nr. 10 in the world in output and nr. 3 in citation-impact) but Little Commercial Use: mismatch between supply and demand of scientific/techn. knowledge European Summits Lisbon 2000/Barcelona 2002: Action needed to make better use of high quality public research
