Potocnik agrees with the need to think 'beyond Lisbon'

Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik has welcomed the recommendations of a foresight report by an expert group on 'Key Technologies for Europe,' agreeing with the conclusion that Europe must develop a research agenda 'beyond the Lisbon strategy'.

A key recommendation from the expert group underlines the need for Europe to adopt a more optimistic and proactive approach to its research policy. The group proposes a dual strategy incorporating both short to medium-term needs, as well as a more long-term global perspective for emerging key technologies in fields such as biotechnology, cognitive science, information technology and nanotechnology.
