Capturing the serendipity of innovation requires an environment that fosters creativity and excellence in research, as well as guiding institutions for the transition into industrial applications. How this can be achieved will be discussed at this Science-Industry Talk 2019, organized jointly by the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) and the Federation of Austrian Industries (IV).
Renowned speakers from both research and industry will talk about the innovation infrastructure established at IST Austria, discuss possible applications of current cutting-edge research at IST Austria, and present successful cases of translating research into industrial implementations.
The registration for this event is now closed.
