10:02:52 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): This is an example. This is exactly where would like to head on in the next few years in Europe but particularly in Portugal. It is about investing in research but basically into projects with concrete business cases. I think here we can see very good examples of this kind of investments in the next few years and this is why we have significantly together with the Portuguese government increased the financial means to invest in research but also in business activities. 00:00:38
10:03:30 Soundbite by Miguel Poiares Maduro (in ENGLISH): The Portuguese government is completely aligned with the Commission and the priorities that the Commissioner has just mentioned. We have had in Portugal a very important growth in terms of infrastructures but the priority now is competitiveness and internationalisation of our economy but that competitiveness needs to be based on smart growth. That is bringing together knowledge with what is the indigenous resources of the territory. In this case, the proximity to leading universities in the Iberian Peninsula and I think that is what they have done here and this is the kind of projects that we want to continue to support together with the Commission in terms of the structural funds. 00:00:42
