Investing in human capital for research & science

Key to enabling state-of-the-art science and innovation is to create a strong human capital basis. How can we optimize researchers’ contributions to the challenges that our industry and society face?

Central to this discussion are questions on how to develop attractive career paths and working conditions for researchers and provide more possibilities for non-linear career paths and curricula. Another aspect is how to encourage cooperation across disciplines and sectors and improve knowledge transfer and valorisation of research.

We support stakeholders and policy makers by monitoring and evaluating policy actions regarding the research capacity in Europe over time.
