EC calls for major rethink on EU research

European research needs a step-change in thinking to rival the United States and remain competitive with emerging economies such as China and India according to a report to the European Commission. A panel of scientific experts from academia and industry, established to advise the European Commission, have released their first annual report outlining how Europe can move towards a European Research Area (ERA) - a single market for research with pan-European cooperation. The report identifies a series of changes that are needed if excellent research is to thrive in Europe. The panel's six key recommendations include a call for greater mobility of ideas and people, research to be driven by societal challenges and a higher level of risk taking in research. The concept of the ERA was relaunched in 2007 with the aim to allow free movement of knowledge, end duplication and increase quality of research in Europe. The European Research Area Board (ERAB), chaired by John Wood from Imperial College London, wants European countries to truly embrace 'open innovation' and believes that Europe needs a 'new Renaissance' in research.
