Europe must reform its academic research institutions
European universities are consistently outranked by corresponding American institutions in academic ratings, with only venerable British schools like Oxford and Cambridge University barely entering US dominated charts. Every year the list of Nobel Prize laureates includes mostly Americans, or Europeans working at American institutions. The most advanced research is done in the US, which also sets the broad scientific trends that define the research done elsewhere.
One of the reasons can be the European lack of researcher mobility.
