Düsseldorf, 7 April 2011

Minister Schulze, Dr Gorak

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am delighted to be here tonight at the presentation of the North Rhine-Westphalia prize for innovation in Research Framework Programme projects.

I would like to congratulate Minister Schulze and the Ministry for Research, Innovation and Science for taking this excellent initiative. As well as showcasing the best collaborative research in Nord-Rhine Westphalia, you are also publicising the 7th Framework Programme and highlighting the benefits of working in collaboration with European partners. I thank you for that.
