hello,

the rules says:
COLLABORATION BONUSES
Whenever any player acquires a technology level with the icon , other players may benefit: every player who has not acquired the indicated level for that technology immediately acquires it for free, advancing their nation marker accordingly

and at scoring:
2 VPs for each technology you have advanced to the maximum level


Each max level have the bulb icon:
So everyone will have always the same PV for this score!?

Re: collaboration bonuses are broken?
No, you're misreading it. When a player reaches a specific technology level that unlocks a collaboration bonus, the collaboration bonus specifies a lower level within the same technology. Each opponent who hasn't yet reached that lower level immediately does so for free.

Example: It's a three-player game. Daniel has just reached level 4 in Terraforming technology (Absolute Mastery of Genetics). That unlocks a collaboration bonus for level 2 (Planetary Engineering). Since Jacob is still at level 1 in the Terraforming technology (Biosphere), he immediately reaches level 2 for free. However, Elizabeth is at level 3 in the Terraforming technology (Alien Genetic Research), so she gains nothing.

Hope that helps!

I thought this too until I saw the tech board. Having the game in front of you when reading the rules is easier.
