Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One might also look at the Finnish model - similarly devoted to high R&D spending both by business and the State.

Per capita, Finland is one of the leading (if not the leader) globally in all the folowing areas:

Business expenditure on R&D %GDP 2.46
Scale of cluster development 5.3 (scale 1-7)
Government R&D apppropriations %GDP 1.01
Knowledge transfer between companies and universities 7.31 (scale 1-8)
High tech patent application to European Patent offices (per million pop) 120.2
Private Equity investment %GDP  0,30

You can't be me, I'm taken
