The progress of the Spanish R & D system from the last decade has got stuck when the economical crisis started. The first budget cuts in R & D sector were applied in 2010, and nowadays the public R & D investment has stepped back to 2005 levels. The Spanish Young Researchers Federation (FJI-Precarios) strongly believes that, beyond raising public investment, a thoughtful R & D policy should be undertaken.

The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to deliver innovation across Europe. The EIT brings together leading business, education and research organisations to form dynamic cross-border partnerships. These are called Innovation Communities and each is dedicated to finding solutions to a specific global challenge. EIT Innovation Communities develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs. Together, we power innovators and entrepreneurs across Europe to turn their best ideas into products, services, jobs and growth.

Where robots will serve in a bar, clean hotels and help people in elderly homes. Christopher Pommerening who used to travel, study and work around the globe wants to give us the tools to be able to move in this world, especially our kids need a lot of assistance the next years. They will be the changemakers and suffer the most climate change.
