I strongly support the FLAPAX initiative because it brings together various stakeholders working towards a common future. Digitalisation is a fact of life and we are aware that it not only offers exceptional business opportunities, but also affects the way we live, do business and communicate – now and in the future. Digitalisation isn’t just a business challenge or a problem to be tackled by a country – it represents an opportunity for us to all be smart together; this is why I support the concept of smart environments, smart investing and, above all, smart cooperation in providing a technological environment that improves our businesses and lives.
I very much support the FLAPAX initiative because it provides exactly the kind of environment we need to boost investments and competitiveness of the European Union based on collaboration between diverse partners. By pooling expertise, knowledge and solutions, platforms such as FLAPAX can facilitate the access of innovative projects to financial instruments. One such source of financing is the new European Fund for Strategic Investments – the EFSI – which is at the heart of the Commission's Investment Plan for Europe. With the EFSI, the Commission's objective is to mobilise additional investment in the real economy, which goes hand in hand with FLAPAX's objectives of finding and developing tangible solutions to people's needs. I therefore very much welcome FLAPAX commitment to digital transport and intelligent infrastructures. I wish FLAPAX every success.
Generating leading research results is challenging, but the right challenge is to transform them into an added value to society and nature. Flapax is providing a necessary mechanism not only to create appropriate value chains with other stakeholders but also to scale up and make real and wide impact.
We have started developing the first ideas about this more than 15 years ago, but it took time and a lot of learning … last years mostly within the consortium of the SmileAlps project which partners strive toward co-creating the first really intelligent region. The FLAPAX concept represents a holistic, but most of all an innovative financial support for larger regional projects, such as SmileAlps.
At Post of Slovenia we try to treasure from our rich heritage, but we are aware that we need to adapt. By initiating Flapax we follow our plan to create an ecosystem in which we can change, develop new services with and for our customers and guarantee their fast deployment. I am delighted to see that colleagues from other companies have joined and I am very looking forward to see the first projects using this structure.
