UNESCO’s science report 2010

January/February 2011 | Volume 10, Issue 1

Cover of the UNESCO Science Report 2010

UNESCO’s latest science report describes a shifting research and educational environment that is increasingly competitive and broader-based. China and India are using their growing economic power to invest in high-tech companies in Europe and elsewhere to quickly acquire technological expertise. Emerging economies such as Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey are spending more on research and development. China is close to counting more researchers than either the United States or the European Union. The trend is fostering a worldwide democratization of science.
