Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Europe can't afford to continue with parallel funding of fragmented research, innovation and development activities in electronics. Quite simply, the challenge we face is too great for that. Member States looking after national champions is simply not good enough if these aren't also European champions. And the EU's share of public R&I in Europe is under 10%. So we need to align as much as possible all available public investment — behind a common industrial strategy for Europe.
