REGISTRATION OPEN: Triple helix conference and brokerage event on bio-based economy (Budapest, 19-20 July)
The triple-helix conference on bio-based economy Supporting the development of bio-based economy partnerships in the Danube Region through a triple-helix approach is one of the major events of the Danube-INCO.NET project where the CEI participates as a full-fledged partner, responsible for the implementation of Work Package 3 “Tackling societal challenges: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in a Bio-based Economy”.
The event aims at supporting the university-business-government cooperation (triple-helix model) to enhance the establishment and development of bio-based economy partnerships in the target countries, tackling societal challenges in the field of food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, water research, bio-based economy and bio-energy.
Target groups of the conference are interested participants from academia, government and businesses across the Danube Region. The objective is to gather all relevant actors working in the identified societal challenges and support them in networking and establishing long-term dialogue.
DAY 1: plenary round table and three parallel sessions (on food, materials and environmental technologies and energy).
DAY 2: brokerage event to facilitate matchmaking between/among researchers, industry and government (in the morning). It will be a unique chance to link up participants with a special view of finding partners for upcoming calls.
Back to back with the conference, the 4th Danube-INCO.NET Clustering Workshop will also be organised. It aims at establishing new macro-regional partnerships towards the development of bio-economy, with particular focus on linking challenge-oriented research, innovation networks, industry and government.
Participation in the event (conference, matchmaking event and clustering workshop) is completely free of charge.
Travel and accommodation costs for up to 20 young researchers and innovators will be reimbursed by the Regional Centre for Information and Scientific Development.
