    • Abstract:
      The article reports that the marathon summit that failed and plunged the European Union (EU) into disarray also dealt a severe blow to aspirations for European science policy, unveiled just 2 months ago by the European Commission. Disappointed researchers say the fiasco shows that politicians are only paying lip service to the so-called Lisbon strategy, which aims to revamp Europe's economy through research, innovation, and economic reforms. The failure could spell the end of the plan of the EU to double its science budget, hailed by many scientists, for a European Research Council to fund basic research. The Luxembourg compromise failed, but few countries protested the cuts that it would have made in research and innovation, making it very unlikely they will reserve more money for science in any future agreement. One prime target would be the European Research Council, a new body to fund basic, investigator-driven research in a Europe-wide competition, Giles Chichester, chair of the Committee on Industry, Research, and Energy, predicts.
