Abstract

The reform of public research centres and universities, in particular to promote transfer of knowledge to society and industry, Report of the CREST expert group: second cycle of the open method of coordination in favour of the 3% objective
This is the Final report of the OMC 3% CREST Expert Group on the priority topic "Encourage the reform of public research centres and universities, in particular to promote transfer of knowledge to society and industry". Between March 2005 and February 2006, four Country Peer Reviews and twelve Country Reports were produced. On the basis of this material, widely discussed in 11 plenary group meetings, with additional presentations by invited experts, the Group is proposing 20 recommendations for policy action.
The recommendations aim at contributing to the development of successful reform of public research centres and universities to promote knowledge transfer, focusing on four specific areas, which are listed below. These recommendations are addressed to national and regional governments, the EU and the PROs themselves, since they involve organisational aspects as well as support and funding issues. Depending on the policy area the EG has proposed detailed recommendations and general principles for action.
