Thematic University-Business Forum was hosted in Donostia-San Sebastian (Spain) on October 18-19, 2016. Representatives from project #europehome and #empl-oi took part in the Forum to contribute to the discussions about university-business cooperation, share best practices and innovative cooperation models as well as discuss possibilities to expand them further.
Trans-border University-Business Cooperation, Cultural Entrepreneurship, and the role of University-Business Cooperation in urban, territorial and regional development were among the key focus areas of the Forum. Panel discussions and several workshop sessions allowed to discuss ways how to establish durable and fruitful partnerships to promote knowledge and innovation ecosystems involving universities, companies, public administration bodies, and society at large. The Forum provided an opportunity to share examples of existing practices and explore new pathways for establishing and maintaining highly effective University-Business cooperation.
The Thematic University-Business Forum took place in Donostia-San Sebastián as a joint effort of the European Commission and the Basque Government (http://www.ubforum-basquecountry.eu/ ).
