EFFECT @ESOF 2018: Follow us at the “Business and Entrepreneurship in Disruptive Science” Parallel Session!

July 10th 2018
Compans-Cafferelli district, Toulouse, France


In the context of the “EuroScience Open Forum” (ESOF) 2018 Edition in Toulouse, EFFECT project will organize, in collaboration with FET2RIN project, the parallel session “Business and Entrepreneurship in Disruptive Science” to be held on the 10th of July 2018 (10:00 – 11:30).


The round table discussion will address the emergence of breakthrough innovation resulting from research-driven approaches. Participants will do so by identifying the best practices and new ways of thinking the innovation chain as they take advantage of the first year of the European Innovation Council pilot.


Different stakeholders – both researchers and innovation suppliers – will share their opinions on major needs and opportunities. Moreover, recommendations will be made for the next Research and Innovation Framework Programme.


This will be moderated by Dr. Afonso Ferreira, Director of Research at CNRS and Programme Manager for European Affairs at IRIT Toulouse Computer Science Research Institute. It will involve Marta Calderaro (H2020 FET National Contact Point), Javier Echarri (European Business Network), Dario Mazzella (Meta Group Srl, coordinator of FET2RIN project) and Gabriele Bulgarini (Single Quantum, coordinator of the FET Innovation Launchpad MEDISS project, partner of FET Open Hanas and FET Innovation Launchpad QDET).
