We will introduce you the program, give you know-how on planning your conference day and insight on arranging meetings. As an open discussion we encourage you to help us answer the questions unanswered about the role of the ecosystem and events like sTARTUp Day.

Tech transfer tools and methods in universities will be discussed. Seminar will be conducted by Marta Catarino (Portugal). Marta has supported, mentored and coached more than 300 entrepreneurs, resulting in 40 established knowledge-intensive companies that explore academic research results. Being the Immediate Past President of ASTP-Proton, the European Knowledge Transfer Association, she knows what it takes to succeed as an academic entrepreneur in Europe.
The purpose of the seminar is to introduce the universities' international experience in investing in spin-off enterprises.
