The Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe (UNICA) organises the free webinar “Academia & Industry: Innovation Models" on 20 April from 15.00 to 17.00 CEST. Registrations are now open.
Collaboration between universities and industry is an essential component of a balanced research ecosystem, and an important mechanism through which university research delivers economic and societal impact. However, this collaboration also entails risks and challenges.
The webinar will address these issues and provide an overview of different innovation models and instruments that universities have been developing in order to promote and accelerate technology transfer to the society.
Speakers include Christian J. Suojanen, CEO at Broadreach Global LLC (USA) as keynote, and the Vice-Rectors Research from EUA members University College Dublin, Stockholm University, University of Lausanne, University of Luxembourg and Autonomous University of Madrid.
Jonathan Seckl, Senior Vice Principal of the University of Edinburgh, will chair the discussions.
