Chris Decubber - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
I think the important part of this is how to come to innovation. I think we are strong on research, I think we have big potential on innovation and I think the demonstration aspect is an important part of it. We need to demonstrate what you can do with technologies to address the challenges we mentioned and this way we can inspire a lot of entrepreneurs and industrial companies who are innovating already. But demonstrating what Europe can do in terms of innovation, in terms of knowledge, deploying knowledge, is the key. And, for instance the factories of the future, public-private partnership, is one of these programes where we really use this approach to have an impact.
