Abstract

It is widely recognised within the European scientific community that human resources for science and technology in Europe are currently both under-developed and under-exploited. Compared to the US or Japan, Europe falls far behind in terms of the number of researchers per head of population. For every 1000 members of the population only four are researchers in contrast to seven out of every 1000 in the US and Japan. Furthermore, the lack of mobility among European researchers, and poor exploitation of scientific infrastructures, restricts the achievements of the scientific community, and limits the industrial opportunities that arise from scientific and technological advancement.
