Euroscience asks why European industrial research is lagging behind the US

April 26, 2004

Brussels, 23 Apr 2004

Euroscience has launched a questionnaire with the goal of determining why many EU countries are lagging behind the US in terms of technological performance and innovation within companies.

The competitiveness of the EU is affected by this under-performance, which is evidenced by the transferral of research jobs to non-European countries and decreasing research investment.

The results of the questionnaire will be used by Euroscience to analyse the current situation and to develop constructive recommendations for policy makers and industrial decision makers. The ultimate aim is to strengthen engagement and commitment to industrial research.
