Research, the Waterloo Italian awards Erc
the ROME - The Italian scientists find it hard to take the premiums and allowances of the european Union, in this case the prestigious and robust Erc. More and more, in addition, our researchers competitive lead for their properties - up to two million euros per year for the winning research - in universities, laboratories and research centers in the rest of Europe. With twenty-three "grants" awarded by the european research Council, and made public yesterday, in 2019 we have become quarters on the continent (taking into account the nationality of the winner) in this race the scientific governed by the Horizon 2020 programme. Here, Italian researchers awarded this year have arrived behind the germans (55 grants awarded), French (33) and the Dutch (28). In front of the british, the israelis (in growth), the Spanish. We are in a recession, seen that in 2017, we were at the third place with 43 prizes in total, and second in 2018, when we had taken, however, 42 scholarships. The focal point of the city, and painful, however, is that only seven scientists of the twenty, less than one-third, have achieved the recognition in Italy. In 2017 were nineteen and twelve in 2018. The escape of the researcher and of his scholarship are an ancient evil that is getting worse: the collapse of the award-winning, in-house and outside, it is vertical.

it must Be said that among the italians, gratified abroad - sixteen - we are even seconds behind Germany (are twenty of the germans, who have left their Country to study and patent). We are highly skilled migrants and mass. About the victories of your system - the mind of the Italian and Italian university - instead, we are overtaken by Belgium, Denmark, Norway. Funding from 600 million The Call Consolidator of the European research council has seen 2.453 proposed total of 301 awards (600 million euros). Only 2.3 percent is arrived in Italy. The absence of a central that funding for the national science to grow, and with punctuality, and then controls and leads the work of its researchers, he feels. The project of the national Agency for research is in the Senate, into Law of the budget, with € 300 million incubated and waiting for a theory of amendments, the majority sottarraggano policy the intrusiveness on the appointment.

You saw: half of the brains back in Italy after a period spent abroad are to be distributed: other salaries, other technical equipment, superior possibilities to cultivate ambition and responsibility. "They treat us as a nation from C-series" Angela Bellia is a researcher at the Institute for the archaeological Heritage and cultural heritage of the Cnr: graduated in Bologna and has taught and studied in several european Countries, as well as in the United States, obtaining the prestigious Marie Curie Individual Fellowship. Now he can give his reading of the "Waterloo Erc": "If on 301 projects funded, only seven will be hosted in Italy, we speak of the mortification of the Country and its researchers. Of the 78 projects funded in the field of the social Sciences, only one went to Italy, in the life Sciences, we are at level zero. We put millions of euro to participate in this program, and we do it for the benefit of the british and the germans. They are all better than us? I would like to ask to the policy, anyone who defends our work. Administrators realize that we are more and more marginalised and treated as the Country of the C series? With an Erc will finance post-graduate degrees in Germany and France with these grants, they grow further and widen the distances. The research bodies in Europe are war machines that push and support their researchers, we remain in the crumbs of a treasure that is shared between Countries that are already rich".

The seven universities and institutes that have hosted the research by the award are the Ca' Foscari University of Venice (with a study of the Greek language, pure), the Politecnico di Milano (robotic probes as large as shoe boxes for the exploration of the sun) and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia , then l' Iit of Milan (the Italian Institute of technology will have two million for five years for research on the food electronic), Sissa (international School for advanced studies), the Scuola Normale superiore di Pisa (two million euros for studies on diabetes) and l 'Inaf (the national Institute of Astrophysics).
