Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] Second – open data and innovation needs communication and connectivity. That means using and increasing the capacity of a common e-infrastructure. Powerful, affordable broadband - which already exists in for research, education and science. EUMEDCONNECT is a dedicated network for research and education, helping scientists collaborate and innovate, helping Mediterranean researchers reach the world. I want us to assist our Southern Mediterranean partners in this – but I ask you to contribute to make this possible.
