Algirdas Valiulis - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
As we see, this new program, agenda Horizon2020, really, this new approach in my opinion is very important. It's a step to another direction, because now companies offer for...well I don't know about big countries like Germany and others but I speak about small countries, we have about 95% of small and medium companies. In these companies we have no resources, we have not enough personel for implementation and we don't need fundamental knowledge from the research Institution for example or universities. And we have another big problem, a big political problem in my country because the evaluation of universities depends on how many articles you publish in the Thompon database, EC Thomson database specific level, but what the value for your country really is, nobody really knows, and the work together with companies, for universities is really zero!
