The goal of the international Partnering Day is to develop and strengthen cooperation between innovative companies and university scientists. This event is being jointly organised by Styrian and Carinthian universities as part of the Knowledge Transfer Centre South (WTZ Süd). Scientists and companies will have the opportunity to establish contacts, present industrially-relevant scientific results and identify mutually-interesting areas of cooperation.
The international Partnering Day provides the ideal platform for this exchange. Feedback from the 2015 event shows that initial, brief meetings have since turned into cooperative projects. On this basis, the Partnering Day on 21 September 2017 looks set to be a hot spot for “Health Tech Innovations for Successful Business” once again.
Health Technology is defined as the "application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of lives" (WHO).
