The king of Spain, Juan Carlos, defended that innovation must be Europe’s greatest "competitive advantage", alleging that the scientific and technological knowledge is "the biggest source of wealth" and that it has a "transcendental importance". Juan Carlos pronounced these words during the meeting of the enterprise association Cotec Europe, gathering the Portuguese President, Jorge Sampaio, and his Italian homologous, Carlo Ciampi. For Juan Carlos, Europe needs to increase its capacities "to convert knowledge into wealth", creating products and better services adapted to the realities of human beings and capable to stimulate and to strengthen the welfare of our society.

Their Majesties inaugurated yesterday the headquarters of the National Centre for Cardiovascular Investigations (CNIC), which counts on 23000 square meters and will be able to lodge 300 scientists, as well as other groups of investigation that need to use their technological equipment. Doña Sofía defined it as "wonderful", not only for managing a symbiosis between the public and the private investment, but also for being able to serve as a quarry for the Spanish investigators.

Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía inaugurated the greatest cardiovascular reserch centre of Europe. No wonder that the Queen affirmed that "it is a pride for Spain to count on a centre with these characteristics".

The Spanish royal couple will start their state visit to Norway on June 6th, they will stay in Oslo untill the 7th and then the whole party goes to Bergen on the westcoast for the 8th of June, where the Royal Yacht Norge will be anchored. It will be the return visit of King Harald and Queen Sonjas visit 11 years ago.

According to Se og Hør today they have it from several sources that the Court in Madrid has not wanted to do the visit for many years because they thought that Eva Sannums relation to Felipe would overshadow the visit, but now that Felipe is married, the visit will finally take place (oh well...just reporting what it said, looking forward to the visit anyhow and they are comming at the most beautiful time of the year as well)
