What happens in the future?

The question to be answered is: "What Financing does Europe need in the Future". The invited experts will share their perspectives on the growing needs in Europe and identify important funding needs for future projects.

Lucy has a simple answer to the complicated question of what the future will require:

- Cooperation! Sweden is a fairly small country, only 10 million inhabitants. Despite that, some of the best innovations are here, New Karolinska is Europe's most modern hospital and here there is free education at an academic level, for everyone. Nevertheless, there is a lack of competence and the resources are not enough. Working in silos as the 21 regions do means 20 unnecessary reinventions of the wheel and 21 different levels of care quality.
