Advancement

For the art of Advancement, sufficient investigators' time is vested, well in advance before any results become visible.

The current trends in local-government research-spending do not correlate with a high probability in these prerequisites being met as a result of governmental funding. Where funding occurs within public institutes, detrimental bureaucracy harms the agility of research. The reasons should be sought in many directions, including the current situation of public economics, but also to long established policies that evidently regard advancing arts not as a high priority.
