Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Member states first asked us to set up these Flagships back in 2009. Right from the start, it was clear that the Flagships will mean unprecedented collaboration between EU and national programmes. An unprecedented scale of ambition and support over 10 years with a unifying visionary goal. And an unwavering focus on the grand scientific and social challenges, looking at the areas that are high-risk, but high pay-off.
