FutureLab is all about ideas, active participation, very high level of discussion, fruitful brainstorming, networking. 28 participants from all over Europe and not only the Union create an amazing group of people, who brought on the table their amazing comments and opinions. The combination of different national, academic and professional backgrounds of participants and a variety of remarkable experts made the whole week an exciting experience. High level of diversity is an added value to the program. I think this week made all of us think out of the box-or Brussels’ bubble. And the best is yet to come. Projects, cooperations, blog posts, exchange of views and dialogue are on the way. Because dialogue in times of crisis may give solutions, give a hope and create a greater trust, which is lacking but is absolutely important for a common future.
