The International Technology Transfer Conference, organized by Center for Technology Transfer and Innovation at the Jožef Stefan Institut aims to promote knowledge exchange between academia and industry, in order to strengthen the cooperation and transfer of innovations from research labs into industrial exploitation.
Between 27th of September and 13th of October 2017 JSI organized the 10th edition of this event.
During the conference, pre-scheduled R2B (Research-to-Business) meetings took place, allowing the representatives of companies and research institutions to discuss possible development solutions, inventions and commercially interesting technologies. Such meetings presented an excellent basis for possible future research cooperation and business synergies. Traditionally, more than 50 researchers, business executives and entrepreneurs attend the partnering event.
The event has been the perfect location to disseminate OPENiSME project, as a tool to overcome the challenges even now existing in the dialogue between research and industry.
