"THINK Pieces" on the Impact of Politics on European Research
THINK Pieces is a new cooperation between ERA Portal Austria and former Commission official Peter Fisch on the development of European Research Policy. In his latest publication "On the Current Impact of Politics on European Research Programmes" he raises some concerns about a possible “conservative bias” generated by this trend – and offers some very first ideas on how to address the issue.
Peter Fisch is a publicist and has more than twenty years of professional experience as a former Head of Unit at the European Commission in Brussels, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. His THINK Pieces are contributions to the conceptual debate on European Research Policy, aiming at stimulating reflection and discussion.
