Wie “programmiert” man Forschung und Entwicklung?

In der EU luft die “Programmierung” von Forschung und Entwicklung idealerweise nach folgendem Kreislauf ab:

aus: Voluntary guidelines on framework conditions for joint programming in research, 5.11.2010 (PDF)

Darin heit es:

Coordinating Forward Looking Activities (FLAs) at European level could be an efficient and cost effective tool for identifying the long term challenges and elaborating long term visions as well as assessing the impact that current trends and possible disruptive events could have on our society, exploring alternative scenarios and identifying possible solution and mitigating approaches. As the Council Conclusions on Joint Programming of 2 December 2008 recognised, there is increasing need for a new and more strategic approach, which should be based on the joint identification of societal challenges of common interest. FLAs could play an important role in supporting joint strategic discussions by providing information for policy-makers.

Die Voraussetzung dafr, dass dieser Kreislauf funktioniert, ist natrlich auch ein summarischer berblick ber das Geschehen bzw. eine transparente, grndliche Evaluierung. Dass dies offenbar fehlt, stellt ein Papier zur “Innovationsunion” fest:

Too much fragmentation and costly duplication. We must spend our resources more efficiently and achieve critical mass. (…) Perhaps the biggest challenge for the EU and its Member States is to adopt a much more strategic approach to innovation.

Weiter im “Programmier”-Text, der vor allem Kommunikationsprobleme zwischen Politikern und Forschern ausmacht:

Joint Programming is meant to tackle grand societal challenges and it is therefore crucial that its research results feed directly into the policy making process. There is a need for strengthening the dialogue between policy-makers and researchers in order to maximise the policy-making impact of research projects. Much more effort is needed to ensure that project results inform policy-making in a meaningful way.

Aber es braucht noch mehr, wie folgend kurz und przise festgestellt wird:

In Europe, big obstacles to the rapid transformation of research findings into innovation isrepresented by the poor availability of seed finance, costly patent arrangements, marketfragmentation, outdated regulations and procedures. National and regional research and innovationsystems are still essentially disconnected and working along separate tracks with only a marginalEuropean dimension: this is inefficient due to costly duplications and overlaps.
