9 Principles! Project & researcher
Competition on project level and research groups as usual – excellence Principles! RI level Cooperation between universities on RIs to build on excellence and to build excellence OPEN consortia to implement RIs – Roadmap projects OPEN means actively inviting all relevant participants National RI investments to benefit the total research community - or the single university can pay by itself! Universities to commit together in financing of RI of national interest (together with ministry)
