Vidmantas Tomkus - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
I would say that of course these words are very popular now but it's not so simple maybe to make them happening and to work, especially to make some social innovations because we're having an ageing society, we have some health problems and people have not so many concerns about technology, they are concerned about their own life. That's what we have to find. It's a good example: how Apple or the iPhone has changed the world. So the technology is not enough, you have to work with the people and you have to change their life.
