Living collaborations

“Living collaborations”

Thursday, 28th October 2021, 10:00am – 12:00pm CEST

Knowledge exchange, training, co-development and open innovation are often cited as key objectives of academia-industry collaboration, but making the relevant contacts and implementing joint projects requires a good network and defined areas of collaboration. In this webinar we would like to present examples of different models of collaboration that exist at the Nodes behind Euro-BioImaging.

In the panel discussion, we want to ask facility representatives and Industry Board members about finding the right partners and projects for collaborations, when to reach out for collaborators, and the mutual rewards and impact that these interactions bring to companies and the research community.
