I think there needs to be a much greater understanding that each country affects another country in a very real way and the empathy that has to come with that. Whether that means a stronger banking union or a stronger political union is yet to be seen but I do think that a greater understanding that each of us affects the other is really key. [read more]

I believe that even though people do not see immediate benefits from research & innovation carried out in all the research institutions, it is very important that we keep going. I see lot of people who wonder how we robots will be part of their lives one day, but I am sure they will be happy to have robots around to help. And I am not talking about vacuum cleaners. With you human beings getting older and older, there will be a lot of things to work on and change to keep up with that development! [read more]

This is what I'm very passionate about: I think citizen science would be the force for change in science in the next ten years. Right now there's only so much that a small number of highly trained people can do and we're doing all the things that they can do but there's way more that they can leverage when the public can be involved in their efforts and when the role of the scientist switches from being a person who does all the work himself by hand to someone who organizes the work that other people can do, it just expands the range of what is possible and I think if you are able to take advantage of a big scale, it would be a huge benefit because there is more of a communal spirit, there's more of a sense of, you know, let's all solve this problem together, especially in smaller countries you can sort of have a sense of well, this is a problem unique to our area, let's all fix this together and as citizen scientists you can contribute to that very easily and make a big difference.
