The University-Industry Interaction Conference goes to Barcelona!
Theme: Challenges and Solutions for Fostering Entrepreneurial Universities and Collaborative Innovation
The conference is hosted by the University Industry Innovation Network (UIIN) in cooperation with the Catalan Association of Public Universities (ACUP) which represents eight universities in Cataluña with more than 200.000 students and 15.000+ teaching and research staff.
Following our successful conference last year in Amsterdam, with 338 participants from 48 countries, this year’s conference organisers have found the Barcelona Science Museum (known as CosmoCaixa) willing to open its doors for this unique event. The conference will take place inside this "interactive" museum, allowing participants to experience the history of science whilst learning how to exploit the full value of science-business relationships.
Join over 300 participants and engage in rich dialogues with researchers, lecturers, technology transfer professionals, industry representatives, entrepreneurs and policy makers over three days full of discussions, workshops, presentations, networking and idea sharing.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in beautiful Barcelona.
