RBI chief visits Finland

Croatian Times

Rudjer Boskovic Institute (RBI) head Danica Ramljak and research scientist Hrvoje Zorc
have arrived in Finland on a five-day working visit.

During their stay, they plan to meet with leaders of Finnish institutions that finance scientific projects in the field of high technology.

RBI will also present itself at Nanoscience Days 2009, one of the leading world conferences dedicated to nano-science and nano-technology that more than 200 scientists will attend.

Ramljak and Zorc will meet also with representatives of companies that use nano-technology innovations in their products.

Finland has been investing 3.7 per cent of its gross domestic product (GDP) in research and development.

RBI said Croatia invested one per cent of GDP in research and development and needed to invest more.

Finland succeeded in emerging from an economic crisis in the 1990s thanks to science and technology, and RBI believes Croatia should follow its example.
