22 June 2015. In the video, the former Chief Scientific Adviser to the President of the European Commission shares her perceptions on how science and culture can intermingle and create potential for more innovation: “If science and culture find opportunities where we can collaborate, then we can be really innovative in solving problems.”

She experienced this interdisciplinary approach during her time at the Robert Bosch Academy, which has been inspiring for her: “In my whole career this is the only time this is ever happened to me: that I’ve had really valuable time in great surroundings just to think. And I am sure it makes a big difference to me in what I will be able to do next.”
