Gerrit Lesaffer - What is needed to exit the crisis and help Europe's economy to grow?
I think SME's will have to be more competitive in contast to the large companies. I think, if, and I speak now for Belgium, in Belgium I know, 99% of all entreprises are SME's so SME's are really important for the economic tissue and the prosperity of economics in Europe, I think. Belgium is not the only country where there are so many SME's. So they have to be more competitive and in order to get them more competitive, we have to join forces between SME's and the large institutions. There are some programmes in Europe FP7-SME programmes, and now, in Horizon 2020, luckily, there will be more resources for SME's.
