All FP9 Global Challenges must be more equally resourced

EASSH calls for equity in investment in research and innovation across all the challenges of the 9th Framework Programme and for the ‘cluster’ on human-social dimensions to be recognised as of equal importance to the investments in technological solutions. In this paper, we suggest that the real driver of research costs is scientific methods, which are no longer specific to a given set of disciplines and scientific enquiries.
