UAS4EUROPE Networking Conference
Universities of Applied Sciences - From breakthrough ideas to breakthrough innovation!
UAS4EUROPE’s biennial Networking Conference creates networking possibilities for University of Applied Sciences' representatives, its researches and various stakeholders from industry and civil society in the area of research and innovation. This event will be kicked-off with high-level political discussions in the morning, followed by interactive thematic workshops and face-to-face matchmaking opportunities in the afternoon. Furthermore, we kindly recommend a visit at our UAS4EUROPE virtual exhibition to get inspired by best practices and the hands-on mentality from our University of Applied Sciences.
Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS), because of their regional embeddedness through close links with industry and citizens, hold enormous potential to translate breakthrough ideas into breakthrough innovation. How exactly UAS use their regional power for a green and innovative Europe will be the central topic of our high-level political panel discussion.
In addition, with the launch of Horizon Europe, the research and innovation communities in Europe and beyond are joining forces and preparing their funding applications. With a share of over 50% of the total Horizon Europe budget, Pillar II offers applied sciences multiple entry points to address “Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness”. This will be the topic in our first wave of interactive workshops, where professionals engage with each other to define the challenges and opportunities within each of the six clusters.
During a second wave of workshops, an interactive exchange between registered participants will address the position of UAS within regional innovation ecosystems and their role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, a dedicated workshop focuses on Horizon Europe programme planning and specifically on how work programmes are prepared and designed.
The event website will be updated on a rolling basis.
