The worldwide increase in S&E activity translates into a decline in the U.S. global shares of R&D investments, high R&D industry output, S&E publications, and other S&E measures.
Finding new ways to solve problems and approach challenges is a significant part of the engineering industry. Engineers rely on science and mathematics to solve everything from power generation to how to build the world’s tallest skyscraper without it falling over.
For many years, we have been witnessing a paradox in Italian research. On the one hand, we have heard the frequent declarations by politicians and institutions on the importance of research and researchers. On the other hand, the same policy makers have been imposing budget cuts and constraints to scientists. The scientific community has thus expressed justified concerns.

The first guest interviewed by Federica Bressan for the Technoculture podcast was Michael Matlosz, President of EuroScience
The good news for our robotics and space programs is that human beings can build machines that vastly outperform us in durability. It takes some clever engineering, but humanity regularly builds probes and robots that can survive long journeys through some truly astonishing conditions.
Many of the most impactful advancements laid in basic science decades or even centuries earlier and reveal the need for fundamental research. But the benefit of supporting basic research has been increasingly questioned in recent years while the concept of fundamental research seems to be undervalued.
For the first time, a session on cooperation with Europe, organized with the assistance of the Association of European Businesses: “Russian-European Relations Today and Tomorrow: Challenges and Opportunities for Business” was held on the margins of SPIEF-2019.
Dr. Brian Cahill, Programme Manager of the TRAIN@Ed MSCA COFUND project at the Institute for Academic Development of University of Edinburgh and member of EuroScience board, explains the reason why it is paramount for young researchers to broaden their skills and horizons, but also to contribute to the policy making process that influences their future.
A commentary on Carlos Moedas article ‘Rekindling the love affair’ in ‘nature’ on May 23rd, 2019
The strength of the European project lies in the aim of creating a community by embracing the diversity of its members. Unity in diversity means promoting the value of the vast human variety expressed by all its citizens.
The coming years will see the market for electronic devices and logic boards grow by additional leaps and bounds. But as electronics and semiconductors infiltrate new industries and products, designers and manufacturers are always on the hunt for better and smarter ways to manufacture these vital components.
