Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn keynote speech at the ADITE Seminar on Research and Innovation in Europe., 03 May 2012
"I would like to thank ADITE for giving me this opportunity to present some of the policies and actions that we are taking at European level to encourage and support more and better research and innovation partnerships."
Rome, 03 May 2012
Ladies and gentlemen,
Europe is faced with many problems. But I am very optimistic that with research and innovation we can solve a lot of them – and I emphasise "we", because that is the key. Our problems are so complex and daunting that we need all hands on deck. We need the right people and the right institutions cooperating. And we need better, more innovative structures for working together. We need better partnerships.
