SCIENCE and RESEARCH: the Knowledge Society
Strategically speaking, science is seen as the joining of a number of inseparable links: basic research, ever-present in the generation of knowledge and applied research, all focused on the transfer and exploitation of results and jointly developed with public and private players.
Research centres design strategies to bolster their strengths, reinforce their international positioning, increase their capacity to attract the most qualified talent as well as support relationships with leading scientists in their field, which lead to innovative structures for the exploitation of results, in turn keeping them on the cutting edge of knowledge.
Successful institutions act as a springboard for research in attracting and retaining talent, the exploitation of results, and above all, financing based on outstanding results.
