Kate Yarrington
Question for whole panel - do you think every sector needs bespoke (special) design of innovation support to suit their needs, or are there just a few sectors which have special needs (and if so which sectors are these?)?
Pål Aslak Hungnes
Like David said in his introducion today, meny of our programs are neutral to sectors ex ante. The ex post statistics however, shows that creative industries like ICT, the engineering and other professional R&D&I supportive services and manufacturing industy "wins" the competition. When you talk about missions like "health" or "renewable energy" for instance, I guess business' from most sectors will contribute to sustainable solutions? So perhaps the use of the term "sector" is somewhat unclear?
Kate Yarrington
Good point about the variety on contributory sectors. Another question, for Laurent and Barbara - the global covid response on healthcare shows what can be achieved at speed when necessary. Is learning from this going to change how you design innovation support for healthcare in the future?
Kate Yarrington
Thank you to the panel for their very interesting responses.
Cathinka Holtermann
