Bob Simpkin - In your experience what are the benefits of participating in EU research projects?
I think the sort of collaborative projects the the European Commission promotes do enable companies to do work that they would perhaps not normally do or they wouldn't entering to. It also encourages you to work with other partners and so the whole is greater than the sum of its parts as it were. And so you get new ideas coming up and people working in areas that they wouldn't normally do. So I think that is a valuable asset.
