Science still discovers and invents new things. That's good news. However, the more discoveries we make, the more specialized scientific work becomes. This means larger teams with greater individual specialism may be needed for research. This may negatively impact productivity. About a third of our survey respondents believe that the fact that natural limits to discovery and the easiet targets have been reached is a significant barrier to research productivity. Has this led us into a trap? If so, how do we get out again?
believe that carrying out scientific research in their field is increasingly complex
say the increasing need for specialized skills and more complex teams, is a barrier to productivity
believe there are natural limits to discovery and that the easiest targets have already been met
research on scientific research?
What's the current state of scientific research productivity? What questions need to be asked to ensure such research is more productive in the future? We’ve conducted a study to explore which levers need to be pulled to increase productivity.
