Business and Academia Partnership – new models, new players

The reasons for developing a more effective cooperation between business and the academic institutions are compelling and there is a general mobilization on technology transfer in this sense. However, the alliances are often slow to put in place with difficult topics around IP allocation and remuneration for exploitation. In this workshop we will review effective approaches to build alliances between the industry and academia, and discuss new processes which will be essential in the future.
