“Research and innovation are not primarily focused on solving the most pressing global problems”

The report notes Changing Trends: Driving Science, Technology and Innovation to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals notes that global research and innovation is not primarily focused on solving the most pressing global problems, such as climate change and famine, and therefore is not focused on solving the most pressing problems. Urgent global problems, and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

According to Ismael Ravols, Senior Researcher at CWTS and one of the Leiden scholars co-authoring the report, this research shows that science around the world is not well focused on solving global issues. We show the well-known fact that science all over the world is unevenly distributed and mainly studies the problems of the wealthy population. But perhaps the most important contribution of this project is that it shows from different methodological perspectives that research is still focusing too much on miracle cures as technological solutions, rather than on a multidisciplinary approach with an interest in social and environmental perspectives.
