Joao A. S. Bomfim - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
Right now, in the materials science field, we are trying to reduce the environmental impact of the materials we use in our everyday life. So we're trying to recycle plastics more and more, trying to make materials which are hard-recyclable, trying to reduce the impact of production, cutting on fuel consumption, on CO2 emissions, reducing the energy needed to create and transform materials. If we manage to have all of that, - and it's on its way - you can have a cleaner environment, you can have a more competitive industry and have a better future, for us and for all our children.
