After managing EU research programmes for some 20 years, I am still very much interested in European Research Policy - and I hope that the small contributions I present on these pages can help stimulating a broad and open debate on this subject.
Please have a look at my THINK Pieces: short papers which - I hope - present fresh ideas and unconventional views about European Research Policy in general and the Framwork Programmes in particular.
I very much like the frank debate about these ideas with different audiences, as illustrated by some examples of my Presentations and Speeches.
For those interested, I also present some pictures from my railway journeys.
If some of the material presented here triggered your interest, please feel free to contact me.
