Hiring recently graduated immigrant researchers as interns to offset researcher shortages is also not as easy as it used to be due to tightened immigrant regulations and the increasing trend for interns to return to their home country, rather than seeking to establish a residence in the U.
About a third of the survey respondents expect to outsource some of their research work while another third will hire consultants to offset the staffing shortages. Meeting the staffing levels necessary to accomplish those tasks has also become more difficult as the unemployment rates have fallen. For security reasons, government research labs are often located in out of the way sites and distant from traditional centers of commerce.
Some research managers may find themselves creating temporary research and office facilities in which to house their new employees until they find more permanent solutions. Another issue in this scenario is that the unique government funding increase created for FY may not be continued with a new funding cycle due to political changes.
Solving the current hiring and housing situations would be doubly worrisome if a specific funding process was discontinued in just one or two short years. Just a few years ago, researchers were lamenting about the continuing decline of basic research in the United States. Fiscal cuts in the U. Issues such as leadership in supercomputing, data theft, quantum computing, robotics and cyber security were in dire need of basic research funding according to the report.
The DOD, for example, was scheduled to receive a Furthermore, it also wants to provide resilient power systems that are small compared to current conventional utility-scale coal plants. It also wants to transform how coal technologies are designed and manufactured. Analysts have recently stated that coal plants must adapt and become more flexible to survive in the current and future energy landscape.

Harvard University, one of the leading academic institutions in the life science and medical field, has been having particularly worrisome concerns of its own.
Harvard uses its endowments to support its research staff, programs and infrawww. There is a relatively wide disparity for these industrial funding sources, even in similar geographic regions. Published annually since , the version of the GII specifically focuses on innovation in energy-related areas. Richer economies, with more diverse industry and export portfolios, are more likely to score high in innovation, according to the GII. China leads the U.
The UK is a distant third with about , researchers. China also leads the U. And again, China leads the U. Shih says that the U. Offshoring practices that originally were done to save startup and shortterm production costs evolved into policies that included the contracting of design and product development activities which has continued. The advances seen in these materials create the capabilities that are desired and designed by researchers. Nowhere is this more true than in the semiconductor and solid-state industry.
New deposition and etching processes are constantly evolving for materials whose properties change as they are layered in ever thinner films. Applied Materials, one of the leading developers of the equipment for fabricating these devices recently announced plans for their Materials Engineering Technology Accelerator META Center.
The primary goal of the center is to provide new materials and processes that enable future breakthroughs in device performance, power and costs. A multitude of polymer-based materials are also being developed for a wide range of applications. The strong materials developed for these products include a cool coating for bedding materials; a silicone-based adhesive for.
China itself is one of the strongest global developers of new materials and technologies. It is already the leading publisher of advanced Billions USD materials technology papers, exceeding that of all other countries by a wide margin. BASF, for example, has a global center of excellence for advanced materials and system research in Shanghai and nowhere else in the world. Two examples of BASF materials markets are in flame retardants and polyurethane-based materials used in sport shoe soles.
What was once a government dominated environment for development of new products and systems has been mostly overwhelmed by a plethora of industrial developers and suppliers. A one-time philosophy of take-it or leave-it policy of space launch systems developed by the government now consists of highly competitive industrial launch systems that are reusable, lower in cost and have expanded capabilities.
Even ten years ago, launching a car into space would have been inconceivable. Ten years ago, recovering the first stage of a launch vehicle by having it land on a barge in the middle of the ocean would have been considered impossible.
Surprisingly, the technologies to develop these capabilities have not been all that intimidating. Most of the new systems being developed have been accomplished with the utilization of off-the-shelf technologies OTS and the courage and knowledge of a few entrepreneurs. At one point, researchers considered China and Russia to be the main competitors in the race for space. That scenario has changed with fast-reacting industrial suppliers lining up to compete for the lucrative space market that is developing far faster than anyone would have believed.

Despite the recent advances in the development of new pharmaceuticals, the time to bring a new biological to market is not changing. The report also found big differences in the development of new cancer drugs.
Fifteen drugs for breast cancer were licensed in Europe from to , while none at all were licensed for brain tumors. Driving change may be the implementation of AI in drug discovery. Roche subsidiary Genentech is using an AI system.
Most large biopharma companies now have similar collaborations or internal programs. AI and machine learning are expected to usher in a new era of faster, less expensive and more effective drug discovery. When coupled with automation systems, these techniques are expected to be a boon to drug researchers. While using AI for drug discovery is currently a complex endeavor, computer software is likely to automatically perform many of the currently required coding efforts, making it much easier to perform in five to ten years.

They facilitate the involvement of a diversity of stakeholders in multi-disciplinary and cross-sectorial collaborations. They provide a valuable and still largely missing service to innovative start-ups and SMEs, which face particular market failures or obstacles. Over the years, different types of supportive structures were created, ranging from Centres of Excellence to advisory services or specialised innovation hubs. There could be great benefit from fostering a stronger interconnection between them across the EU.
Based on a mapping of existing entities, and the analysis of potential gaps, an ERAHubs initiative could be developed, building on existing capacities, such as the Digital Innovation Hubs and clusters, and linking to the Enterprise Europe Network and StartUpEurope, to provide an interconnected knowledge space. This will facilitate collaboration and exchange of best practices, with the incentive to maximise the value of knowledge production, circulation and use.
As announced in the March Industrial Strategy for Europe 42 , further actions to improve the management of intellectual property by the research community will be provided in the upcoming Intellectual Property Action Plan. EU business should have access to effective and affordable intellectual property protection throughout the continent so that innovation can be valorised and rewarded.
In this context, the forthcoming launch of the Unitary patent will be an important milestone. Putting an end to fragmentation and complexity, the Unitary patent will provide a one-stop shop for businesses, reducing costs for up to six times compared to the existing, Member State per Member State-based system 1. It will also improve transparency and facilitate licensing process It will also provide for a centralised litigation system, thanks to the new Unified Patent Court.
A European Framework for Research Careers Career development conditions to attract and retain the best researchers in Europe are necessary in the global race for talent. Precarious employment, notably for new entrants, has not improved adequately over the past years increasing the risk that most talented researchers opt for working outside Europe. The imbalances between the number of PhD graduates and the number of tenure track positions in the public science systems are an obstacle for retaining talent.
Training and career development of researchers insufficiently focusses on entrepreneurship or opportunities outside academia. The increased dependency on short-lived, project-based, research funding, has also contributed to this. The skills mismatches constitute a worrying trend for industry and businesses with negative impact on innovation and productivity both in highly innovative industry and services sectors.
This can be supported by deepened skills intelligence, a flagship action presented in the Communication on a European Skills Agenda for sustainable competitiveness, social fairness and resilience. The ERA4You initiative will introduce measures to reinforce inter-sectoral mobility, strengthen academic-business cooperation and the involvement of the private sector in training and skills development of researchers.
It will encourage researchers towards entrepreneurship and business creation. The ERA4You will have a dedicated pillar for Widening Countries to support researchers from these countries to develop and access excellence. In implementing this toolbox, the Commission will pursue synergies with mobility and career development initiatives of the European Education Area, and the European Pillar of Social Rights.
In this context, the pan-European pension fund for researchers RESAVER , is an important support to researchers cross-border and cross-sectoral mobility. The toolbox will lead to the creation of a pipeline for talent. This is because opening and sharing research results and data, making them reusable and reproducible, and having access to research infrastructures provides the basis for peer scrutiny and quality, as well as efficiency in taking research reflections, analysis and innovation further.
First, the Commission has already taken steps towards Open Science. In the medium term, EOSC will grow into a trusted research and innovation data space and service platform in Europe that is fully articulated with sectoral data spaces such as the common European health data space, and open up and connect with the wider public and private sectors. Second, policies for open access to scientific publications have also progressed rapidly over the last decade, with different business models in place.
Ensuring the right for researchers or their institutions to share publicly funded peer-reviewed research findings without restrictions is essential for knowledge to circulate freely. Immediate open access to publicly funded publications has the advantage of sharing research results as early as possible, contributing to research efficiency and scientific excellence without compromising systematic peer review. Under Horizon Europe, the Commission proposes to launch an Open Research Europe publishing platform, by ensuring that all publicly funded research is integrated into a single seamless European data space.
Third, the current research assessment system is largely based on the impact factors associated with specific journals, where the publication takes place, rather than on the individual content and added-value of the publication itself. More should be done to incentive to share results and collaborate, and to encourage trans-disciplinary research. Improving the system requires the collaboration and agreement with Member States, research funders, research performing organisations, scientific publishers and other actors to coordinate and synchronise reforms at institutional, regional, national and international level.
Research and technology infrastructures including e-Infrastructures. Large-scale research infrastructures are a backbone of the ERA and key to make Europe attractive for the best researchers across the world, contributing to knowledge sharing and innovation.
E-infrastructures, in particular connectivity and collaboration services, will play a fundamental role in exploiting the full potential of research infrastructures. Ultra-fast connectivity will become a building block for the use of digital twin-like models of reality, with near real-time decision-making tools, rooted on scientific evidence. The European Commission has been working in close partnership with the Member States and the scientific communities within the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures ESFRI to develop new pan-European infrastructures and the effective networking of existing ones.
However, research infrastructures have greater added value when used both for research and technological applications. This will support industries and SMEs, with balanced scientific resources and access for researchers across the EU.
Infrastructures can also make a significant contribution to innovation. In that context, the strategic development of European technology infrastructures has been identified as a key issue Industry, and notably SMEs, require access to the right technology infrastructures to quickly develop and test their innovations and successfully enter the market. The Commission will, together with the Member States:.
Strengthening the public science system through synergies with the European Education Area. It consists of universities and other publicly funded research and technology organisations, which base their action on academic freedom fully embedded in the scientific culture and processes.
Freedom of discussion is essential for peer-review and for publishing verifiable results, which is a prerequisite for scientific excellence. Without academic freedom, science cannot progress and the ERA cannot function. The most vibrant and innovative ecosystems in the world have strong interactions with top quality universities.
While Europe has many strong universities, their potential is not fully exploited. Develop a roadmap of actions for creating synergies between h igher e ducation and r esearch , notably building on the dual role of universities. Coordinated action with education policies and research funders will promote a gender-inclusive culture. The She Figures 53 report presents overall improvement, but the pace remains too slow. Yet, women remain significantly under-represented: only The number of women among patent holders, also remain extremely low and only 1.
The engagement of citizens, local communities and civil society will be at the core of the new ERA to achieve greater societal impact and increased trust in science. Building on the key role of science during the COVID pandemic, Member States, research organisations and industry should involve citizens in technology choices.
The ERA will enhance the communication to the wider public, and young generations in particular, on science addressing the twin transition and promote participatory actions concerning the transformation of our economy and society.
It is also important to include representative organisations of groups at higher risk of exclusion such as persons with disabilities and older persons in order to address critical issues related to their exclusion in the research. O rganise with Member States and stakeholders Europe-wide participatory citizen science campaigns to raise awareness and networking, crowdsourcing platforms and pan-European hackathons, in particular in the context of Horizon Europe Missions.
The Commission will develop with Member States best practices to open up science and innovation to citizens and y out h. Governance of the new ERA. The new ERA requires action at national and EU levels, supported by a process to set and update the policy priorities, monitor and assess progress and ensure strategic advice towards common objectives. Action at EU level will be guided by the proposed list of actions according to a timeline the ERA Roadmap presented in the appendix that will be updated by the Commission as implementation proceeds.
Action at national level will be guided by a set of key values and principles, building on the experience of the past 20 years in areas such as open access, gender equality or career conditions for researchers and others. It will take the form of a single non-binding initiative.
Through its coordination work, the ERA Forum for Transition may also contribute to the identification of investments and reforms to help Member States prepare their national Recovery and Resilience plans for the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Facility. A transparent monitoring system will be essential through the publication of a yearly ERA Scoreboard which will address the progress at EU and national level, revise priorities and actions in the ERA Roadmap and provide evidence and analysis for the European Semester.
ERAC should ensure the follow-up at national level and continue to carry out its oversight role of day-to-day implementation through working groups. Lessons learned from the Horizon Europe co-creation strategic planning process should be taken into account. The Commission will assist the running of the groups equipping them with the necessary resources and contributing to agenda setting and co-chairing.
Countries associated to the Framework Programme will be invited to participate as observers, provided this is foreseen in the respective association agreements. The geopolitical dimension of ERA. Creating partnerships globally, in order to enhance knowledge sharing and skills as well as research and innovation capacities, without accelerating brain drain, will be key, particularly for the benefit of young people.
The European Neighbourhood deserves specific attention. Europe has responded to the tremendous challenges it faces by setting itself ambitious goals. Building European resilience based on a greener, digitally empowered, competitive and more sustainable Union, requires joint efforts and global leadership in science and innovation, as well as engaging and empowering citizens. Furthermore, the European Research Area and the European Education Area will work together to achieve a new level of ambition in which education, research and innovation are steered in the same direction to underpin knowledge as a foundation for democratic, resilient and inclusive societies.
This is essential if Europe is to remain globally competitive and innovative while, at the same time, true to its common values in creating a more equitable and sustainable world. Europe looks ahead and paves the way to the next generation by offering an excellent knowledge-based society with top institutions and talent while promoting inclusiveness and democratic values. Key actions.
Develop common industrial technology roadmaps. Update and develop guiding principles for knowledge valorisation and a code of practice for the smart use of intellectual property. New toolbox in support of researchers career development. Develop a roadmap of actions for creating synergies between higher education and research, notably building on the dual role of universities.
Organise with Member States and stakeholders Europe-wide participatory citizen science campaigns to raise awareness and networking. Researchers in Motion is a unique pan-European initiative b acked by the EU , member states and associated countries.

See section 2. Henning, M. Workplace harassment among staff in higher education: a systematic review. Asia Pacific Education Review, — Funding by the higher education and private non-profit sectors in was relatively small, 1.
The main developments over the period to were a fall in the share of funding by the government sector, with small increase for the higher education sector, a decrease for the private non-profit sector while the abroad increased modestly. In the Asian economies of Japan In the United States Equally, the role of the private non-profit sector was also generally small, exceeding 3. These four sectors are: the business enterprise sector, the government sector, the higher education sector and the private non-profit sector.
The European Commission compiles three levels of indicators to support research and innovation policymaking. These may be grouped together as: the headline indicator; innovation union scoreboard or core indicators ; and a comprehensive set of other indicators. The headline indicator is the 3. The scoreboard indicators are designed to monitor research and innovation for the Competitiveness Council, while the comprehensive set of other indicators are for in-depth economic analytical purposes and European Commission services to produce an innovation union competitiveness report.
The European Research Area ERA is designed to overcome some of the barriers that are thought to have hampered European research efforts, for example, by addressing geographical, institutional, disciplinary and sectoral boundaries.
