Comparative Analysis of the Impact of Scientific And Technological Cooperation in North America and the European Union. Parallels between Hungary and Mexico
This article analyzes the impact of Hungary’s cooperation in science and technology with the European Union, comparing it with the case of Mexico in North America. Both countries have had the expectation of benefitting from a scientific and technological spillover and flow because of belonging to a region with a higher degree of development. This has not happened –or at least not fully– and this article tries to identify the obstacles. Even though Hungary receives a certain amount of resources from the EU, science and technology have actually regressed there. The author concludes that, among other elements, this is due to internal factors in each country, mistakes and vacuums in economic and educational policy, as well as migration of qualified personnel.
