Higher education and Research & Development are central to European Union strategies
Higher education and Research, Development & Innovation are already top priorities of EU strategies. Improving research and development plus the innovative power of public and private institutions are acknowledged as key for the competitive position of the European Union in the future. The ability to drive innovation will determine the standard of living in the next decades, so research and innovation have been placed in the heart of the Europe 2020 strategy.
European Union member states are encouraged to invest 3% of their Gross Domestic Product in research and innovation (1% public funding and 2% private investments). This is expected to generate 3.7 million new jobs and an annual GDP growth of € 800 billion.
