The UCA Committee on Innovations and Smart Specialization, in partnership with the Kyiv Academic University, invites representatives of clusters and scientists to take part in the discussion "How can business get along with science?"
Establishing effective cooperation between science and business is important for transforming scientific results into products and services to meet social needs, overcoming the challenges of wartime and post-war recovery, and solving global problems.
Unfortunately, science and business speak different languages, and in order to find common ground, it is necessary to take steps towards each other.
During the event, we will try to reach a consensus on what mechanisms, forms of interaction, and tools allow representatives of science and business to effectively communicate and cooperate for victory and post-war recovery.
The event will take place online Zoom on December 19, 2023, 15.00-17.00. Roundtable program:
15.00 – 15.15
