About this Textbook

Advanced comments on Attilio Stajano’s Research, Quality, Competitiveness: European Union Technology Policy for the Information Society
"Allocation for schools and education are believed [by most] to be a cost. Stajano proves with cogent analysis that education and knowledge are instead veritable infrastructures for social cohesion and economic productivity. Allocations for school and education are also necessary investments for life and productivity of a nation."
Tullio De Mauro, past Minister of Education, Italy; Professor of Linguistics, University of Rome
"A lively, insightful, and comprehensive book for policy makers that could also serve as a student textbook."
Hermann Hauser, CEO Amadeus Capital Partners Ltd, UK
"This book will be useful for companies and individuals who are planning to submit research proposals as well as lecturers, students, politicians and civil servants who are interested in EU technology policy."
Sir Robin Saxby, ARM Holdings plc, Chairman
"This book is not only a beautiful synthesis and a clear overview of what matters in [the making of modern Europe], it is also a message of hope for all of us who want to see Europe at work for the future."
Luc de Brabandere, Vice-President, The Boston Consulting Group
"Attilio Stajano is one of the pioneers who helped shape European research policy, specifically in the domain of information and communication policy….[His] book aims to provide all necessary information to help the reader understand Europe and the complexity of European integration. "
Dr. Rosalie Zobel, Director, , European Commission, Brussels
"[This book] is an enlightened tool for anyone considering submitting R & D proposals and provides an excellent text for courses on EU policies for sustainable growth."

"The book is divided into three sections: an introduction to the structure of the EU, a review of EU competitiveness, and an analysis of research and technology policy in the EU. … may be useful to extract as an introduction for newcomers. It will also be useful for those coming to the book … with no knowledge of the EU. … is a welcome one to those of us working in the educator sector." (Matt Harvey, Contemporary European Studies Association of Australia, Issue 34, 2006)

"This book focuses on issues of European science and technology policy. … Overall, the book is interesting and pedagogically valuable. … it is very useful for understanding the institutional context of EU science and technology policy. Also the social and economic data the book provides are very rich. Therefore, it can be recommended to undergraduate students of science and technology policy and to policy-makers in the EU."(Theo Papaioannou, Science and Public Policy, Vol. 33 (7), August, 2006)
