There are many innovative things we would be able to do, but we never find the time, we don't have the money, students/programmers are needed and hard to find. Still it would be real fun to devise a smart code, to see people using it, and to have your name on the Pascal Hall of Fame :-) The Pascal Harvest Programme aims at making it possible, easy, and rewarded. The main idea behind Harvest is: put together in a room a team for long enough to produce an innovative software for a real application. PASCAL2 will pick up the bills.
