The growing R&D divide in Europe will be in the focus of this LunchDebate: while the need for fiscal consolidation has driven the EU Member States most affected by the crisis to cut research and innovation budgets, countries with a stronger economy have in contrast even increased public research spending. What are the consequences of this development?
