Thematic University Business Forum 
Universities. Businesses. Alliances for Innovation.
Vienna, February 25-26, 2016
To stay competitive, Europe must invest in people, their ability to innovate and to adapt to change. Universities are at the heart of the knowledge triangle of research, education and innovation, which drive the knowledge economy. Higher education together with business can provide the necessary skills and create an environment which enables innovation. 
Main topics covered by this event are: 


  • How can cooperation between business and universities be structured to best drive innovation? How can we scale up models such as “dual studies”?
  • How can an entrepreneurial mind-set among students, teachers and researchers be encouraged? How can science, business and policy support start-up creation? 
  • How can a university operate in an entrepreneurial way? What is the role for universities when it comes to lifelong learning, knowledge exchange and regional growth?


The event is being organised in partnership by the European Commission, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.
The two-day forum will bring together representatives from business, public authorities and universities. Around 300 participants from all over Europe will work together on new ideas and collaboration. Be inspired by high-profile speakers and lively exchange at breakout sessions and networking slots.
