“Avatars are one element of the future of internet, as digital twins of humans”

“You can imagine real people in the form of avatars creating a virtual innovation lab based on a physical one”

 

“On virtual events, informal talks are the most missed thing”

 

“We should connect one maker lab with other maker labs, and bring people together. Because creative outcomes are coming from knowledge diversity. We have to connect local innovation labs with virtual tools.”

“Universities have to Educate students as well to be the best collaborator, not only have the best engineers”

“Academia-industry collaboration is not about contracts, it is about trust and being mentally prepared. To start with, you have to trust people and have an open mind”

“Sometimes in innovation, we have to relax and not go so fast, and we have to reflect a little bit more”
