European Union IT research is failing
European Union IT research is failing:
Viviane Reding, European Commission information society and media commissioner, said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fast-changing IST research is, and must remain, a key driver for the rapid economy-wide technological innovation on which EuropeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s skilled jobs ultimately depend.Ã¢â‚¬Â
She said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I intend to respond very quickly to the panelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s concerns about red tape, which is a general problem of EU research programmes, but felt most directly in IST research where we operate in a particularly dynamic and fast evolving environment.Ã¢â‚¬Â
this will be good, but there still needs to be some solid oversight.
