The progress of the Spanish R & D system from the last decade has got stuck when the economical crisis started. The first budget cuts in R & D sector were applied in 2010, and nowadays the public R & D investment has stepped back to 2005 levels. The Spanish Young Researchers Federation (FJI-Precarios) strongly believes that, beyond raising public investment, a thoughtful R & D policy should be undertaken.
