The Italian scientific community always complains about an evident lack of investments in research by the government. This is evident in terms of budget and human resource which are below the average of European states and in general below all top science and technology-performing countries. An aspect often untold is the relation of Italian science with industry, that may represent an alternative driver to public funding. I tried to elaborate that aspect as response, to the article "Plans for new research hub get critical reception", but rather inspired by that piece and by all the ongoing discussion within the Italian scientific community and the whole civil society.

Abstract

The Italian scientific community always complains about an evident lack of investments in research by the government. This is evident in terms of budget and human resource which are below the average of European states and in general below all top science and technology-performing countries. An aspect often untold is the relation of Italian science with industry, that may represent an alternative driver to public funding. I tried to elaborate that aspect as response, to the article "Plans for new research hub get critical reception", but rather inspired by that piece and by all the ongoing discussion within the Italian scientific community and the whole civil society.
