Applied vs. Fundamental Research

As much as I am a fan of fundamental research, which is defined as "gathering knowledge for knowledge's sake", I would like to spend my time on Applied research. I think those who get to do fundamental research are lucky and gifted.

For others, who are not so lucky, and have decided to spend time on applied research because of their own choice or chance, here's a suggestion:

"Please always think about how your research will help the bigger picture. Always have that in mind.
At some point in your research, if possible at the beginning, define whose problems and what kind of problems you want to solve using your research."

All the best,
We have a lot of work to do!
Our future depends upon your success...
