16.00-17.30 Techno-park - a Stimulative Environment for
Transferring Research Results to Industry

Session chair: Henning Thomsen, Danish Technological Institute,

This technology transfer session focuses on the ways of positively exploiting synergy between research and industry. Techno-parks offer unique incubator circumstances, where researchers can verify their theories in practice and test whether they are mature and feasible for commercialization. Business organizations, on the other hand, can obtain assistance for their development projects. In a techno-park they can co-operate in an environment which stimulates mutual exchange of experience and knowledge. Experience reports on technology transfer in techno-parks constitute a core of this session..

19.15-20.00 Evening Panel:
-based Co-operation Beyond Electronic Mail
The panel has investigated how collaboration could be improved based on advanced
applications of INTERNET. An electronic mail is an INTERNET service known practically
to all academic community. INTERNET and multimedia technologies offer however
possibilities of far more advanced services. European-wide learning, distributed
workgroups, and virtual laboratories are examples of undertakings feasible with a
more sophisticated usage of INTERNET. The panel has discussed the possibilities
and consequences of applying these advanced INTERNET-based applications in building
pan-European collaboration and technology transfer.

Panel moderator: Jan K. Frackowiak - Polish Government
