Science and Technology shouldn’t be confined in one department or laboratory, where good ideas may evolve but are often stuck in silos.

While it is critical to have teams in place, whose job is to focus on science, technology and engineering, innovation needs to be a process and culture cultivated across the country.

Everyone needs to contribute to it, asking themselves: What can I improve? How can I do it better? Dreaming is essential to make meaning of life, find your inner voice, truly grow up, and show the next generation how to dream. One must boldly follow his/her dreams.

Make space and time for your dreams, map and track your competencies, know your beliefs, build on your strengths, fine-tune those dreams and become the hero of your story.
