Abstract

University research has to serve as a substrate for science and technology and should raise a qualified, critical but motivated younger generation of scientists. These need a basic research which is independent and not oriented towards any short-term goals. An open and easy collaboration without any interdependence is necessary between the university and industry. All this requires greater autonomy for the universities. in German-speaking countries, many people distrust progress. However, it is not a matter of 'progress at any price' but of a careful, pertinent analysis of the benefits and risks. Parsimony in science and research is dangerous and shortsighted. To invest in research means to invest in the future.
