Future Bites webinar to tackle collaboration between universities and businesses

18/11/2020 - 15:00 to 16:30

FinnAgora is collaboration with a Finnish founded global company Demola on a webinar tackling the collaboration between higher education and businesses. How can these collaborations be mutually beneficial? What kind of potential do student innovations bring companies? Our experts tell us how to encourage and facilitate the potential of such collaboration with case examples from their own institutions and companies.

Future Bites: Collaboration Between Higher Education and Business Sector is a pilot in a series of webinars we are producing next year, leading up to Finnovation 2.0, a business conference FinnAgora will produce in the fall.

Future Bites: Collaboration Between Higher Education and Business Sector takes place on Microsoft Teams on November 18th at 15:00-16:30 CET. The event is moderated by Attila Debreczeni, owner and partner of business consultancy company ConnectingFinland.
