Hans Gudmundsson referred to the Barcelona agreement of 2002, stating the goal of reaching 3% of GDP for research funding by 2010. Gudmundsson argued that this was not enough, the challenge being to educate and train enough internationally qualified researchers. The investments must, according to Gudmundsson, be channeled to provide research training of the highest international quality.
-Today‘s research students will after all be the most productive researchers in 2010, Gudmundsson stressed.
