      Alternative fuels for cars, better batteries for electric cars, better solar panels for generating electricity from the sun – those are some of the top priorities for the next 10 years.

      Flexible mobile phones, safer cars, smaller computers and so on. But I hope new antibiotics are discovered and produced, because without these many diseases we have under control at the moment will become dangerous again as they develop resistance to the current antibiotics.

      I think there will be lots of work done to try and reduce food and packaging waste – the amount we waste in this country, especially when you think there are so many people starving in the world, is massive. I have recently seem some quite interesting concepts where the packaging you use for the food is edible, so that you can buy your food product and then eat it along with the packaging!
