Low funding jeopardises the European Commission’s innovation missions

The European Commission plans to spend about €120 billion on research and innovation under mission-oriented programmes between 2021 and 2027. This column shows that planned spending is small both relative to the total R&D spending of individual EU countries and relative to previous missions. In addition, there is a lack of clarity on how missions will be determined, designed and governed. Experiences in other countries suggest that the Commission should find new ways of increasing funding to missions and increase clarity on the implementation of mission-oriented policies.

Firm Level Absorptive Capacity and the Success of International Technology Transfer: the Case of Aerospace Industry in Turkey
Seçkin, Başar (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2016)
This paper aims to figure out the relation between firm level absorptive capacity (AC) and the success of international technology transfer (ITT). Additionally, effects of determinants on the success of ITT other than firm level AC are examined. The research is focused on aerospace industry in Turkey by considering the transferee country’s point of view, as well as the developing country perspective. The research stands at a position to answer the question of “what forms AC” in a holistic way. In this conte...
