On June 8, the Center for Innovation and Technology of UPC (CIT UPC) will host a workshop on 'Improving technology transfer in Europe', within the framework of the Science2Society (S2S) project. The objective of the event is to provide a space for debate and exchanging experiences in technology transfer, through the pilot projects that are being developed in S2S.
The event will begin with an introduction by Jordi Berenguer, Vice Chancellor of Knowledge Transfer and Innovation at UPC. Throughout the day, the results of three pilots from Science2Society will be presented: Co-location ("Establishing industry innovation labs within universities") led by UPC and CA Technologies, "Big Research Data Transfer", led by Aalto University and Atos, and "Open Innovation Marketplace", led by Innoget.
President of IASP (the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovation), Josep M. Piqué, will also present success factors in technology transfer.
Finally, an interactive session on developing the next generation S2S mechanisms through User Journeys and Megatrends will be led by Bax & Company.
Please note the workshop will be held in Spanish.
