Abstract Title: The European Approach to University – Industry Collaborations and the Role of Governments:
Benefits, Challenges and Limitations
When: Day 2 (15th November, 2017) | 10:00 – 10:40[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]Abstract:
Collaborations between Universities and Industry are at different stages of development in Europe. Universities and Industry are co-operating more closely. Governments as well as European Institutions foster these co-operations to a varying extent, using both positive and negative incentives. The collaborations gained and still gain importance as a vehicle to foster innovation, contribute to employability, economic growth through transfer and exchange of knowledge, creating a win-win-win situation for universities, industry and the state in an ideal setting. Yet, some universities, industry, governments and other stakeholders also raise concerns about the collaborations.
The keynote will showcase examples of such collaborations, identify trends and consequences and thereby address both the benefits and challenges that all partners are faced with in order to highlight how and where such collaborations can indeed create added value whilst outlining potential pitfalls that often are the reasons for concerns on either side and thus limit further progress in this area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][button icon=\”icon-left-big\” background=\”#941c1f\” url=\”https://clicks-uae.com/mena/forum-structure-program-2/\”]Go Back[/button][/vc_column][/vc_row]
