Instead of CONCLUSION Ján Figel,European Commissioner for Education and Training, Culture and Youth: “In difficult times, it is vital that we work together, that we exchange our ideas, discuss and debate together problems and possible solutions. This is all the more important in the area of university-business collaboration, which has traditionally not been one of Europe's strong points. Working in partnership is more important than ever, especially for academia, research and businesses." (Opening the Forum University-Business Cooperation,5 February,2009)
