The EU only funds only a small proportion of research in Europe. It would be bad for fundamental research in Europe if it were possible to carry out a single type of research in a single laboratory, instead of using several independent groups, because the most important findings are often independent and can occur simultaneously.
All research must be repeated by independent groups. Letting the European Commission tell us which group will make the discovery will hamper overall research.
