Top science

The Dutch Innovation Platform wants Holland to become one of the five leading countries in scientific research and technology... Great. The ways to achieve this however seem to be... Less then adequate. Although this article has some good points. A joint effort with Belgium and Germany to make the region Eindhoven - Leuven - Aken a new European Silicon Valley sounds nice. Too bad this region is WAY TO BIG. But a 3 nation region is of course better, it would make exporting and international partnering easier. And of course the famous "innovation vouchers" are mentioned (again). With these, small companies can get 7.500 euros worth of innovation at a local university, a really huge amount of money (yeah right). There goes another 7,5 mil down the drain.
