    European research goes for gold

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like some serious competition. Will it cause tension among nations and/or individuals? Will it impact collaboration?

    1. Any additional source of funding's a good thing.

    2. It's not an international competition.

    3. Any conclusion drawn from grouping all research together can't be relied upon because different groups, let alone different countries, are experts in different things.

    4. China and India need to keep check of quantity over quality, tho' I wait to see if their are results from the "growth" of these two, often quoted, countries.
