The Netherlands wants to double its R&D funding

from 423 million Euros to ( 423 + 433 ) million Euros.
That's a lot of euros. Check out this quote;
Nijkamp realises that the extra 433 millions euros per year requested is a considerable sum. 'Yet it is a vital investment, if we believe that our future is linked to the success of the Netherlands as a knowledge based country.'
Now that's someone that wants to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to Economic Transformation. Puts in perspective NZ's shuffling of the deck chairs while it tries to transform itself.
Not sure if they'll get their funding but it's an impressive target to be aiming for.
