DECIDES 2019 report on the scientific policies announced and implemented by the Government

Dear President

COSCE today publishes the DECIDES Report on monitoring and analysis of the scientific policies announced and implemented by the Government during 2019.

The document is available to the Societies on the Confederation website:

Science policies, which include science funding, encompass many other cross-cutting aspects of public policy. Its analysis is essential to evaluate the commitment of any government action to science, the basis of prosperity, competitiveness and well-being of societies in the 21st century.

The 2019 Report highlights the little political path that the Ministry of Science has had, the precarious situation of the State Research Agency, which must urgently adapt to the law, and the lack of political will to initiate a sustained and sustainable effort in terms of economic and human resources, to reactivate the science, technology and innovation system.

The report accompanies the analyzes with proposals and recommendations to place science policies at the center of public policies.

The previous annual reports, as well as the expert analyzes on critical points of scientific policies carried out by the DECIDES project, can be consulted and downloaded at:

In order for the results and proposals of the 2019 Report to be widely disseminated, we ask you to share this information with the members of the entity that you preside.

On the COSCE portal ( you will soon find an outstanding piece of news about the Report, with the press release distributed to the media that you can also consult.
