Science to Business Programme

Science to Business Programme

The Science to Business Programme is a fundamental component of ESOF2020 and will provide opportunities for industrialists, researchers, policy makers and business/academia support organisations to engage with one another, learn, network and debate the issues surrounding the exploitation of breakthroughs in science and share ideas and best practise for improving the commercial outcomes from research.

The programme will seek to explore the major and particularly the common challenges encountered for research and innovation across a diverse range of industry sectors, including: healthcare, pharmaceuticals, industrial manufacturing, chemicals, finance and fintech, Artificial Intelligence, IT and communications, materials and engineering - all industries for which future breakthroughs in science and technology will have major impact. It is a unique opportunity for cross sector, multidisciplinary interaction and an opportunity to strengthen the interface between the business and the academic world, examining the future role for Universities in the innovation process.
