A call for new private research investments

At the request of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), we assisted in drafting a concise op-ed article for publication in Het Financieele Dagblad, a leading Dutch daily newspaper.

In the piece, the KNAW’s President made the case that private investment in basic research in The Netherlands is called for. Rather than just focusing on later-stage product development, the private sector should help invest in solid and broad base of basic research, for example through dedicated foundations that could receive new tax incentives from the government.
