Abstract

European R&D policy needs to be evaluated and formulated within the context of a global perspective. Part of the reason for the importance of a global perspective is the opportunity to learn from the experience of other countries. But the biggest reason is that globalization has shaped the types of R&D policies that tend to be successful in Europe.
