6th TETRAMAX Workshop on Transfer to Industry and Start-Ups - call for participation

6th TETRAMAX Workshop on Transfer to Industry and Start-Ups (TISU)on January 24th at the HIPEAC CONFERENCE 2018 Manchester is organised by the TETRAMAX H2020 project.


Building dynamic economies that are based on the creative application of human knowledge is currently an aspiration all around the world. As part of this effort, Europe has been investing a lot of resources in different programs (e.g., FP7, ENIAC, H2020, ECSEL, …) to stimulate research and innovation. However, the impact of such programs on the overall European economy is still below the targets/expectations. For instance, the number of startups born from these research programs remains still limited.

This workshop aims at discussing means and ways to improve both the industry transfer as well as stimulating people to transfer their knowledge in business ideas and startups. Therefore, the workshop focuses on two main topics:

  • Transfer to industry: How can we improve the transfer of EU research results to industry? Are the existing schemes and organizations (Artemisia, Eniac, Horizon2020) efficient and effective enough? What kind of research project organisations do we need? Etc.
  • Start-ups: When should one seriously consider going for start-up? What does it take to start a company? How do I start doing it? How can one minimize the risks? What are your experiences with respect to starting a company?

The workshop is looking for people who are willing to share their experiences and vision with a wider community. The format is very flexible and speakers have up to 20 minutes to tell their story.
