Science-Technology-Industry Links and the ”European Paradox”: Some Notes on the Dynamics of Scientific and Technological Research in Europe

  • Giovanni Dosi
  • Patrick Llerena
  • Mauro Sylos Labini

This paper discusses, first, the properties of scientific and technological knowledge and the institutions supporting its generation and its economic applications. The evidence continues to support the broad interpretation which we call the "Stanford-Yale-Sussex" synthesis. Second, such patterns bear important implications with respect to the so-called "European Paradox", i.e. the conjecture that EU countries play a leading global role in terms of top-level scientific output, but lag behind in the ability of converting this strength into wealth-generating innovations. The bottom line is that European weaknesses reside both in its system of scientific research and in a relatively weak industry. The final part of the work suggests a few normative implications: much less emphasis should be put on various types of "networking" and much more on policy measures aimed to both strengthen "frontier" research and strengthen European corporate actors.
