Dr. Odd Myklebust - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
The world has been technology-driven, for at least the last 150 years and it still is. I feel that the problem today is that even until 10 years ago, the scientists had a lot of solutions, they tried to sell them to economists, parlements, goverments, politicians... Today, the politicians are asking for solutions the scientists do not have. We do not know how to make an emission-free car, we do not know how to reduce the CO2. Due to that fact, science is even more important and there are demanding questions for the society that researchers or reasearch as such are not able to answer right away. So we need to find solutions to existing problems, not just giving solutions for potential problems.
