Nokia: Science skills gap is Europe-wide

The lack of young people taking up scientific careers is a pan-European rather than UK-specific problem, according to a senior Nokia executive.

Speaking with ZDNet UK shortly after the announcement of a collaboration between Nokia's research team and Cambridge University — with an initial focus on nanotechnology — Dr Tapani Ryhanen said the same story could be told "in Germany or whatever leading EU country".
