EU Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik claimed that Europe is at a pivotal point in its history as he encouraged universities to modernise and repeated warnings of increasing competition from Asia and South America.
He suggested that the future for universities lies in seizing the opportunities offered by new developments in existing fields, as well as by new, emerging lines of scientific inquiry. 'This could mean focusing less on scientific disciplines and more on research domains such as green energy or nanotechnology, associating them more closely with related or complementary fields,' Mr Potocnik suggested. These complementary fields could include the humanities, social sciences, and entrepreneurial and managerial skills.
