  • [01] Inner Cabinet approves bill on new framework for research and technology

    The new institutional framework for research and technology, to be tabled shortly in parliament, was approved by the Inner Cabinet on Tuesday during a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    The draft law constitutes one of the most major reforms promoted by the new governance, Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas told reporters after the meeting. Sioufas was the draft law's sponsor, together with Education Minister Marietta Yannakou and Deputy Minister of Development Yannis Papathanasiou.

    The objective is to make Greece competitive in the knowledge economy, improve its performance and keep abreast with international developments on research and technology, Sioufas said, adding that the draft law focuses on innovation issues, invests in knowledge and research, and allows for the optimum utilization of the country‚s scientific minds.

    The draft law on research is based on three axes: the promotion of cooperation programmes among universities, research centers and major organizations (national and international); research incentives for scientists and innovators; and promotion of new technology entrepreneurship.

    Sioufas said that the key to making up for lost time and limiting the system‚s weaknesses is cooperation among universities, research centers and the business community.

    Education Minister Yannakou referred to the close cooperation with the ministry of development over the past two years, and stressed that the draft law on research and technology upgrades the role of the ministry of education while offering an opportunity for optimum utilization of domestic and foreign scientific minds.
