The Minister of Science, Pedro Duque, ensures that “not only is it possible, but it is required“increase investment in science in Spain, an objective that Atresmedia also seeks with the successful ‘Target 2%’ campaign. In this way, the minister has explained that Spain is far behind the average of European countries, since in the last decade very few investments have been made in comparison. For this reason, he argues that “science needs many improvements, especially the conditions of the people” who are dedicated to it.
“The way to pay the debt is have products that are much more exportable, that people’s salaries are higher, that they contribute more to social security and all this can only be achieved if technologies and science are developed, “Duque has considered.
In that sense, he explained that it is normal that if he advocates doubling investment in science, other ministers want him for other things. “Each one has to try to bring resources into the area in which they are concerned., it is normal that there is dialogue “, has indicated.
