Much more investing in science is possible and necessary for The Netherlands
An opinion piece from the Volkskrant, signed by 200 renowned scientists, calls for more investment in science. The Netherlands invests only slightly more than 2% of GDP in knowledge, while countries such as Germany and the United States invest more than 3%. The first steps towards higher investment have been taken with the National Growth Fund and a proposal from the Knowledge Coalition, but according to the signatories, these are too slow and insufficiently ambitious in view of international developments.
