5TH INNOVATION SUMMIT (02/09/2012) The EU Commission awarded economist Dr. Rafael Popper from the University of Manchester a research grant to find out how to track down the signs of future developments. Developments which remain undetected on political radar yet are going to have implications for our future. What emerged are recommendations for research projects which are supposed to be funded by the EU Commission. And an internet platform that could perhaps be termed a kind of “Research Wikipedia”. People all over the world exchange signals and ideas for the future via a new platform. Just like they do via Twitter etc. nowadays.
