Partneringday 2016 - Solutions for a better life

Solutions for a better life

Welcome to the Partnering Day 2016

The goal of International Partnering Day 2016 is to nurture cooperation between innovative companies and university scientists. This event is being jointly organized by the Johannes Kepler University as part of the Knowledge Transfer Centre WEST (WTZ West) and two initiatives of Business Upper Austria, namely MedTech.Transfer and Smart Plastics. We will provide an innovative platform for scientists and companies to establish contacts, present industrially-relevant scientific results and identify mutually-interesting areas of cooperation. The event will be moderated by the Daniel Cronin, passionate entrepreneur and dedicated startup supporter.




Be inspired by the panel discussion and keynote speaker,
the paralympics champion,
Christoph Etzlstorfer.
