The education and training within many RIS regions need significant development both in terms of content and methodologies. We need to find ways to improve the education institutions leveraging on good examples. In addition there is significant talent in the RIS regions that can be seen as underutilized and that see limited opportunities locally. Universities within the RIS regions are also seen as less attractive by international and European students. Innovation and entrepreneurship is also seen as an in particular weak area. Here Europe has a huge potential in general and within the field of urban mobility in particular.
Do you agree with the statements above? How significant is this issue and potential? In what areas would this be particularly important? Why is this difficult to solve?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the problem, so please try to avoid to discussion concrete solutions, even if it is difficult. Potential solutions will be discussed in the next step of the process.
