I would like to respond very briefly to Mr HOWELL regarding the marketisation of research. You very rightly said that, for example, when it comes to research — for instance, research during the current pandemic — in relation to the vaccine against Covid-19, applied research is of course carried out in conjunction with economic... 20/11/2020 | 16:51:58 Dear Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, It is a particular pleasure and honour for me to present this report here today, because I believe that academic freedom is a very important issue.

Ladies and gentlemen, There is an excellent report in front of us. I would once again like to express sincere thanks to Mr Rapporteur Lord Richard BALFE, and to all the experts who have contributed to this great report, and of course to all my fellow Members. It is worth reading this report so that we can actually review the whole development of the Ombudsman institution a bit. I think that, especially for the countries that have introduced this new institution of the...
