Utilization of the results of public research and development in LuxemburgFunded under: IS-SPRINT 0
Luxemburg is practically the only industrialised country which has neither basic legislation regulating R & D in the public sector, nor extensive university structures or public bodies dedicated to R & D. This report is, therefore, limited to a description of the projects financed by the public sector and a description of the changes which will take place once legislation on R & D has come into force. The public sector commissions studies for its own use. It is therefore necessary to encourage the organisation of R & D in order to facilitate the realisation of research projects within existing public institutions and to create public research centres which will be attached to these institutions. As the new legislation has not yet been implemented, it is impossible to judge its level of efficiency or the technology transfer problems which may arise. It is nevertheless to be hoped that there will be close collaboration with the business sector in the implementation of research projects and the creation of public research centres, and that co-ordination of research activities will be ensured at both regional and European level.
