This paper is inspired by the latest G3A’s (2015) Report and its subsequent initiative to open the debate about the role of science policy in a country project for Romania. We argue that a long-term vision for science should be about the youngest generation, people that will make decisions in and for Romania at the horizon of 2050. To articulate that vision, a mechanism should be implemented around three directions of action, namely (1) a complementary (or rather compensatory) effort of the leading scholars with a view to consolidating their disciplinary domains in Romania; (2) allocation of support according to the education and research needs specific to two distinct markets – global and local; and (3) attention to the thick complex of institutional development that goes beyond quality assessment.
