Prof. A. Hamid El-Zoheiry - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
I think research and innovation play several roles when we think about the future. First, it is very obvious that we need to complete the cycle of research and turn it into innovation, for the sake of industry and economy it is very important for us to grow. But we also have to think about research and innovation and look at its societal challenges, addressing societal challenges, addressing the society at large, and make benefit for the society. So we probably embark on what is called 'social innovation' to help finding innovative solutions for our society.
