A plain notice/reminder for today is my persistent hope for a Unified Europe/EU in terms of Engineering! I just bet the U. S. Americans are better in playing ONE team and that they are applying a 310 engineering grade throughout its 50 states whereas we are even poor at the _sharing_ level! So one of the challenges of Europe/EU today is to bring our best (f.x. EADS/Arianespace/Ferrari/Airbus) 510 grade engineering throughout the region and for preparing for the expanding EU as well, upgrading the candidates _before_ we include them (by good bilateral agreements also)! You understand, please?
Earlier commented on as for us to consider ourselves as "Oregon to Florida" or rather Finland to Portugal!
Despite the differences in language! But, but, by the help of translator tools, by computer software or mobile phones or any other! Indeed, all are welcome!
Indeed, our business network should have two parts and behave like ONE network. That is, before we crawl for the U. S. Americans, we discuss with our European/EU partners first! If Greece could think of a solution to something, they contact France, fx., first and NOT USA. Business has a fair chance to become vastly syndicated by 70 - 80%, given opportunity to perform and accepting equality on the doctor to doctor level! Therefore, industry (incl. science) has become largely one that employs people and one that's highly coordinated! We need to drop the dreamland conceptions that the so-called "true business competition" exists to this whole extent because nobody can identify it and everybody knows that industry is highly socialised! Yes, I hope you listen! Good luck to you!
Note: Because of the "interest", leading someone to delete my message from Facebook, I post this also here.
