Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] We have the building blocks at our disposal. We have successful models for more cooperation, like the joint technology initiatives for joining up public R&D funding. We have EU funding: nearly 1.8 billion euros proposed through Horizon 2020 for the micro and nanoelectronics and the adjacent photonics key-enabling technology. We have other sources like the EIB or structural funds. And we can also support politically through the right competition and State aid rules.
