The PSF supports reforms by bringing in a fresh perspective and a wealth of hands-on experience. When Isaac Newton said ‘If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants’, he meant that one can only advance by learning from others. This is the spirit invoked by the PSF to improve European countries’ research and innovation policy-making.
The PSF listens to what countries want and provides them with tailor-made advice based on real-world experience. The PSF mobilises top international experts to tackle today’s hottest policy topics in innovation and science: from business angels to open science. It also brings countries together to learn from each other and to push each other to be more competitive.
