lower the support when you are
jobless


New jobs available but no one has the right
competencies


Why? The jobs change faster than the
competence


Secretaries need to become software developers


Knowledge less important! Skills more important
and especially ICT!!


Next? Learn to learn?

Universities need to be evaluated differently. A mix
of synergetic interaction between research,
teaching and innovation. A mix of stakeholder;
i
ndustrialists, students, academicians, society


Is there work to do? Yes! Ask
rather in what way should we
pay?


Financial systems and economy
systems need to be reformed


Fair competition

new initial ideas for potential future themes




3 current themes = will remain valid



Balance between business and public good



Fit to EIT characteristics


knowledge triangle and

stakeholder
integration



Scope of potential future themes should be broad

in
order to attract a wide range of proposals



Non

conventional

1.
Scope
-

Broad enough for creativity, focused
enough for results?

2.
Social utility
-

Can it solve a real problem? A
Grand Challenge?

3.
Competitiveness
-

Does Europe have an
edge, or can it gain one?

4.
EIT relevance
-

Could a ‘knowledge triangle’
approach help?

a)
What is the business case?

b)
What are the educational benefits?

c)
What are the research and technology
challenges?

d)
Would collaboration among the 3 sectors
help?
