Times of crisis often lead to stark contrasts that bring to light things that are more important than others. The past months have shown how critical it is, that we continue to conduct excellent science and bring the science to life so it has an impact on society as a whole.
Europe has a good track record in conducting science but shows in comparison to the USA a much weaker performance when it comes to turning the results of science into patents and ultimately products, services, jobs, and economic benefits.
We want to raise awareness for the above topics, celebrate the first year of IST Park, and highlight the innovative companies working there and their fruitful collaborations with IST Austria—showing how science is brought to life.
The Science-Industry Talk is a cooperation between IST Austria and the Federation of Austrian Industries.
