Italian Giorgio Parisi, winner of the 2021 Nobel Physics Prize, knocked Friday the absence of financing for research study in Italy, stating it invested among the most affordable quantities in Europe.
” Research is underfunded and the circumstance has actually intensified over the past 10-15 years,” he informed an interview with the foreign press in Rome.
” I was pleased to see that Mario Draghi’s federal government is dedicated to increasing the research study spending plan, we are at the bottom (of the list of financing quantities)” in the European Union, he stated.
Research Minister Cristina Messa guaranteed 6 billion euros in financing for 60 tasks on Thursday, consisting of 5 billion this year.
According to 2019 information from Eurostat, Italy invested 1.45 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on research study, while the EU average is 2.19 percent. It lags far behind Germany, which invests 3.17 percent.
” Italy is not an inviting nation for scientists, whether Italian or foreign,” stated Parisi, who on Tuesday won the reward together with 2 other researchers, Japanese-American researcher Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann of Germany.
” Research resembles a veggie garden, if you believe you can water it every fortnight, things will fail,” he stated.
