Research and Innovation

"Luxembourg carries out research, but it's not innovative enough," Claude Karger argues. "As the regular EU Innovation Report recently showed, in this sector so vital for economic competitiveness, Luxembourg is lagging behind, even if it is in the upper middle ranks. Of course it's not just a question of pumping taxpayers' money into countless research projects and selling the investment off in grandiloquent speeches as great progress. Both the people and the economy want to see the results of the nation's efforts in the R&D sector." According to Karger, results can be achieved by "simplifying decision-making structures and through 'Public Private Partnership'. Increased cooperation between public institutions and private business is also the key to achieving greater mobility for researchers and students, and to a better understanding between academics and market-oriented research."
