During the workshop's round table the following recommendations emerged:

Fullscreen

•   The European Union should continue supporting FET in the next framework programme, with increased funding;


 •   The current combination of bottom-up open R&I with a top-down focus on emerging technologies should be maintained;


•   The collaborative dimension in FET, offering opportunities to start-ups and SMEs to collaborate with research communities, should be preserved;

•   FET Flagships should be maintained as complement to the more societal-driven missions proposed for FP9.

Have a look at the workshop brief conclusions.
