Nov 30: Science-Industry Talk 2021
Translating Science into Business – Lessons from an Emerging Ecosystem
Date: November 30, 2021 | 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Speaker: Simon Johnson, MIT Sloan School of Management & Global Entrepreneurship Lab (GLAB)
Science critically contributes to an economic development and society – we have seen this drastically over the past 2 years. Ecosystems that provide the necessary network and partnerships across disciplines, development stages and functions are key to success.
At the Science-Industry Talk 2021 we will highlight the status quo and progress that has been made over the past years to create a productive ecosystem at and beyond IST Austria. We will look back at past aspirations and what has actually been achieved until today. This 360° review also includes a look into areas of research and selected scientific achievements by scientists at IST Austria.
In the panel we will discuss how IST Austria and other institutions can continue and further improve the translation of scientific insights into results with positive economic and societal impact.
