Research and Innovation

Research and Innovation have been placed high on the national agenda as they will enable Malta to achieve economic sustainability. The government is aiming at creating an environment in which the spirit of innovation flourishes.

The government has made a commitment with the European Commission that the R&D target will be revised upwards to 2% of GDP. This target is Malta’s committment to the Horizon 2020 goals.

Innovation is the key to securing a sustainable and competitive economy that would provide creative employment opportunities and higher living standards. Research is a vital element by which innovation can be achieved.

We believe that through an innovative society we can be competitive.
