Françoise Chombar endorses VARIO's call for "9 Ministers of Innovation"

In the opinion piece “Go for 9 ministers for Innovation”, which VARIO handed over to the Flemish government negotiators in July, we called for more cooperation between policy areas in order to tackle the major societal challenges; a so-called transversal policy. It is one of the important recommendations of the  VARIO-memorandum.

To underline its importance, VARIO asked five inspiring leaders to make the link with a major challenge that is of great importance to them.
