This is the third event of this series of forums for people from academia and industry. It will provide an opportunity to talk about issues of relevance to both groups, to network and to listen to a number of experts' views on Universities-industry collaboration.
This event is for all representatives of academia and industry, with a focus on academics seeking to understand the problems and opportunities facing industry, and industrialists seeking to understand potential opportunities and advantages of working with academics.
