[Correspondence] Public investment in biomedical research in Europe

Europe spends about 10% of its gross domestic product (GDP) on health care. Public spending on biomedical and health research in Europe is only about €42 per person per year, less than 2% of the health-care costs.1–3 The USA spends a much larger absolute and relative (compared with GDP) amount on health care (table). Several independent reports3–5 suggest that the USA also spends substantially more on public investment in biomedical and health research, up to 3 times more per person per year than in the EU.
