Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] This is important. Not just because it helps scientists and science to progress. But because we should never forget that the number one research funder in Europe is the taxpayer. And they deserve to get the largest possible reward from that investment.
Dear Neelie, there is a tremendous opportunity to align and coalesce the thinking about the value and worth of the common market contribution among the citizens of Europe. A common sense, straight talking and positively vital way should be found to exploit your sentence '...the number one research funder in Europe is the taxpayer.' By making the rewards measurable and tangible to everyone, the EU would realise an important parity and the potential to foster positive feelings towards distant governance of their money.
