PUBLIC FUNDING BALANCE
In the countries we’ve studied, governments are generally seen as supportive of R&D. Despite this, the proportion of government funding as a percentage of total R&D funding declined between 2000 to 2018. This could be a problem for long-term, greenfield research which is a springboard for innovation. What can be done to ensure the right balance between public and private-sector funding? What’s the most effective way for funding to be utilized in order to increase the productivity of scientific research?
say their country’s government has adequately prioritized scientific research
say the balance between funding and focus on the three different stages of research is about right
