In my research work I got to know America as an open scientific landscape. What impressed me particularly was the extent to which the effective communication of knowledge was valued. The ability to communicate results concisely whilst, at the same time, leaving nothing important out, is seen as a component of research skill that is already trained during undergraduate studies. Perhaps it would be worth observing across the Atlantic and engaging in “methodology importation” with the aim of giving European research activity an even stronger voice.
