To what extent will the coronavirus pandemic shape European research, innovation and education in the future. Futuris spoke to Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.

Gabriel says.

Digital Education Action Plan

"Now, all this doesn’t mean we should forget to address other things that remain real challenges. We need to keep working on connectivity, especially in rural or isolated regions, where it is not optimal.

"We need to keep improving equipment. Even today in schools we see, for instance, children who don’t have access to tablets. "All this will be taken into account with the incoming Digital Education Action Plan, she says.

The Commissioner summed up by saying: _"In research and innovation, we need to continue our work on Artificial Intelligence. A human centred approach that is ethical and faithful to our fundamental principles but, at the same time, Artificial Intelligence that will enable us to move forward in fields like precision medicine or precision agriculture. All this is accounted for in the next framework programme for research and innovation "Horizon Europe."
