    A unique opportunity to share, learn and network

    From June 18th to 20nd 2019, UIIN will bring you a whole new set of knowledge and insights on university-industry interaction. Working towards a more innovative, entrepreneurial and inclusive society, we take a holistic perspective towards the interaction between university and business. During this three day event we will focus on strategic partnerships, innovation districts, the future way of work, collaboration with SMEs, entrepreneurial teaching and learning and many other aspects of university-industry interaction. In June, more than 500 university leaders, practitioners, CEOs, policymakers and academics will visit Europe’s home to innovative start-ups, modern universities and saunas. This breeding ground for innovation and entrepreneurship provides the perfect environment for the next UIIN conference. Right in the heart of Helsinki we will bring you with insights into the 'how-to' when it comes to developing more engaged & entrepreneurial universities, driving regional growth, managing your strategic partnerships and develop a system supporting student and academic entrepreneurship.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Helsinki.
