Are you a boundary spanning champion and want to share your story?
This is your chance to be recognised for your work
and present your tools, frameworks and stories.
Join a global forum for university-industry cooperation champions – leaders, researchers, practitioners and business representatives operating at the intersection between academia and business. Share your spanning boundaries tools, frameworks and unique personal stories from across the globe, meet peers and connect with other champions driving university-industry interaction, technology transfer, entrepreneurship and innovation.
This online gathering of practitioners, organised by UIIN, will cover a wide range of topics around university-industry engagement with the main focus being on people – those who are at the forefront of interaction, who break down the barriers between academia and business and drive meaningful change and collaborative innovation for their organisations.
This is an international recognition of the efforts of university-industry champions and the role these spanning boundaries agents play in today’s innovation and higher education landscape.
