Innovation is currently essential in the modern world. Many businesses see R+D+i as their strongest ally however there is a disparity between them and research groups, this impedes talented young people from working in areas of their interest.

Europe has different financing programs for research projects, this is undeniable. However, there is no solid structure for the financing of master’s degrees that would allow students to dive into research and use their valuable knowledge in innovative projects, instead of having to do the work that a company has contracted them for.

Spain is not the only country in this situation, countries like India who play an important role in the field of computer science, also experience difficulties in providing access to quality master’s degrees and in obtaining the financing these courses require.

I leave you with an article related to this topic which had been published in El Mundo Innovadores on the 25th of September.
