New rules for foreign students and researchers

08-05-2018

The aging of the EU population and a shortage of skills, coupled with competition from other attractive destinations for the talented and the highly skilled, have created a need for more effective EU policies in this area. EU legislation has been evaluated as insufficient to fully tackle the challenge, but new and improved rules for foreign students and researchers come into effect this month.

European Research Area

18-05-2016

This Cost of Non-Europe study examines the state of implementation of the current policy framework for the establishment of a European Research Area (ERA). The study combines a backward-looking (ex-post) and a forward-looking (ex-ante) evaluation. While the ex-post evaluation looks at the implementation of the ERA policy framework, the ex-ante assessment focuses on potential costs and benefits of possible further policy action. In doing so, it identifies shortcomings in the ERA policy framework and ...

This Cost of Non-Europe study examines the state of implementation of the current policy framework for the establishment of a European Research Area (ERA). The study combines a backward-looking (ex-post) and a forward-looking (ex-ante) evaluation. While the ex-post evaluation looks at the implementation of the ERA policy framework, the ex-ante assessment focuses on potential costs and benefits of possible further policy action. In doing so, it identifies shortcomings in the ERA policy framework and outlines costs due to the lack of further action on the issue. The study makes a cautious estimate that the costs linked with implementation shortcomings of the ERA policy framework could amount to €3 billion per year.

Entry and residence of third-country nationals for research and study purposes

20-02-2014

The European Union faces major structural and demographic challenges. To maintain its position as world-leading economy, the EU needs to attract more skilled labour. Students from third countries are an important source of skilled workers, while the EU has a shortage of the researchers and innovators desperately required if the Union is to meet its economic growth targets.

The Attractiveness of the EU for Top Scientists

15-06-2012

The study shows that while Europe has a strong science and research base the European research sector does not currently represent an attractive enough proposition for top researchers. To effectively address this problem, policies must be developed that specifically focus on the quality of the research environment while also creating the conditions that can best promote and reward scientific excellence. Opportunities exist at the EU level to positively address these issues, primarily in the context ...

The study shows that while Europe has a strong science and research base the European research sector does not currently represent an attractive enough proposition for top researchers. To effectively address this problem, policies must be developed that specifically focus on the quality of the research environment while also creating the conditions that can best promote and reward scientific excellence. Opportunities exist at the EU level to positively address these issues, primarily in the context of targeted actions in relation to smart specialisation initiatives and specific actions in the framework of cohesion policy. There is a clear need also to strengthen the ERC and to streamline international cooperation with third countries in relation, for instance, to the Horizon 2020 initiative.

The Role of Knowledge and Innovation Communities in the EU Research and Innovation Landscape

12-06-2012

Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) are highly integrated excellence driven partnerships consisting of business, academic and public sector partners. The KICs are an independent but operational part of the EIT with the aim to deliver economic growth through innovation. The combination of substantial autonomy and high quality partners provide KICs with good potential to become world class centres of excellence.

Cross-border Mobility of Young Researchers

08-10-2009

Mobility is important not only for the career development of researchers, but also for scientific and economic performance as a whole. Researcher mobility has been low in many Member States and there are several obstacles for mobility especially for young researchers. At the same time Europe is facing increasing competition over a highly educated workforce. As a response, the EU and the Member States have introduced several measures to support the mobility of researchers. Despite these efforts the ...

Mobility is important not only for the career development of researchers, but also for scientific and economic performance as a whole. Researcher mobility has been low in many Member States and there are several obstacles for mobility especially for young researchers. At the same time Europe is facing increasing competition over a highly educated workforce. As a response, the EU and the Member States have introduced several measures to support the mobility of researchers. Despite these efforts the progress has remained slow and further effort is still needed to facilitate mobility in particular of young researchers.

Nanotechnology Advances in Europe

15-04-2002

Nanotechnology is currently an area of research focus in most developed nations. The effort in research and development in Europe is the largest, in terms of publications, in the world. The research conducted in Europe covers all of the main nanotechnology research areas and varies from country to country, due mainly to the historical manufacturing base.

Nanotechnology is currently an area of research focus in most developed nations. The effort in research and development in Europe is the largest, in terms of publications, in the world. The research conducted in Europe covers all of the main nanotechnology research areas and varies from country to country, due mainly to the historical manufacturing base. The issues raised concern the lack of availability of suitable staff and students, a lack of accessible information about networking possibilities (for those new to the field) and concerns over the public perception of nanotechnology. The movement to larger research grants also concerns many as this is seen as potentially a move from emphasis on fundamental research to more short term goals. The generation of large collaborative centers of excellence concerns those who are not involved as they foresee the danger of politicisation, more difficulties in getting funding and further difficulties in getting staff. Funding for networking opportunities was criticised as being spread too thinly, though networking was described as adequate, by those who have been in the research field for a number of years. The lack of suitable staff and students from within Europe is a major concern. The development of undergraduate and postgraduate training packages directed at nanotechnology was seen as beneficial, but the lack of funding for these initiatives was a concern. The perception of nanotechnology by the general public was seen as dangerous for those conducting the research. Too much emphasis was placed on sensational reporting of nanotechnology that is unlikely to impact on people's lives in the near future, while nanotechnology with direct impact on people's lives was left largely unreported. The gap between the awareness and reporting of science in the US and Europe was a concern for some who felt that although they are conducting first class work there is little publicity for it in Europe.
