“The issue with the impact, it’s that the impact on society is not seen enough good as other type of impacts”

“There is too much concern on intellectual property, things have to be more open, there is too much competitiveness, we should be thinking about collective. Think about value in a different way, societal value, instead of monetary value to focus not only on IP”

“Numbers are telling you where you are, but you need to do and get qualitative data to understand why”

“There is too much competition in the system, even inside the country, even in research. Nowadays, it’s not about solving problems, only on having good ideas. It should be more mission-driven-innovation and mission-driven-research to reduce competition.”

“We need more collaboration, but they have to look at the whole system and how to build relationships first”

“How can we take risks? Think and experiment how we can do things differently”

“When you bring something new, everybody will hate it. simply, because it’s new”

“There is an innovation bias towards technology. Innovation is not technology”
