Call for papers, presentations, workshops, tracks, posters and PhD projects

Your opportunity to contribute to the conference

The 2013 University-Industry Interaction Conference will be an international meeting and discussion forum for practitioners and researchers on university-industry innovation and entrepreneurial universities, where theory and practice are equally emphasised in the programme.

We are now calling for academic and practitioner papers and abstract presentations, workshops, tracks and posters on the themes of the conference. We would like to encourage you to submit abstracts of conceptually or empirically focused proposals as well as insights from practice.

All proposals will be reviewed by an international scientific committee with a double blind review process.
