Ditto, and ditto again for me too.

 From what I remember, that's what got the EU to let Blender be a  
part of the Verse project- to be the practical application of that  
research and development they're financing, so it doesn't just end up  
as wasted money floating around in academia.

As mentioned before I really doubt the EU cares very much about  
making open movies or about how many users Blender has compared to  
other apps. What they would care about is getting a 'return' on their  
investments in the academic world - so the EU citizens that they're  
supposed to represent actually can derive value from the taxes that  
they're indirectly spending on academic research.


(who would love to see more of the interesting things in Eurographics  
papers happening in Blender ;)
