Abstract

With the 2000 Lisbon Strategy and subsequently with Barroso’s 2010 program, the EU has set for itself the ambitious objective of becoming a “society of knowledge” and thus becoming one of the most advanced areas of the world. The key element of this strategy is the funding of scien- tific and technological research, and the EU has consequently encouraged the member states to increase funding up to 3% of their GDP. After the failure of the expectations for the last ten years, it is now time to seek the causes of this failure and to single out the critical problems that have arisen from the attempt to implement such a “society of knowledge” in order to avoid the previous mistakes and another failure.
