Universities of applied sciences play a pivotal role in regional innovation ecosystems. Working on applied research, UAS connect SME’s and societal partners with innovations in a wide range of societal challenges. This position is crucial, especially in sparsely populated areas, as a recent report from the JRC confirms through a study in the Northern Netherlands. During our second UASNL lunch session we explore this topic, best practices and how it relates to European funding opportunities.
This session welcomes contributions from the following speakers:
- Eskarne Arregui-Pabollet, JRC, European Commission
- Eric Koch, EISMEA, European Commission
- Jeroen Rijnhart, Center of Expertise Watertechnology (NL)
- Vincent Pijnenburg, Cross-border Business Development, Fontys UAS (NL)
- Anne-Christine Habbel & Désirée Neeb, Hof UAS (DE)
