A 2 minute insight into our 2013 conference!

From the 27th till 29th of May, the University Industry Innovation Network organised the University-Industry Interaction Conference in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. During this three day event, 338 participants, from 48 countries representing a wide variety of Higher Education Institutions and business came together in Amsterdam to discuss and share information on the current challenges and solutions in University-Industry Interaction. With keynote speakers such as Henry Etzkowitz (President of the Triple Helix Association), David Docherty (Chief Executive of NCUB) and John Bell (Vice President Philips Research), the conference brought together some of the key thought leaders on university-industry interaction.

We are currently finalising the conference proceedings with four journal special issues also being on its ways (incl. International Journal of Technology Management, Industry & Higher Education, International Journal of Technology Transfer and Commercialisation, International Journal of Technology Marketing). All conference materials, incl. photos, presentations, abstracts and papers, will be made available to all participants and UIIN members. Not a UIIN member yet? Apply for a UIIN membership at: www.uiin.org.

We would like to thank all keynote speakers, workshop facilitators, track hosts and presenters, partners, sponsors and all attendees for making this conference such a success.

We look forward to welcoming you to our 2014 conference. Please keep an eye on www.uiin.org and www.university-industry.com for the frequent updates, or subscribe to our newsletter on the right.
