"Networks as Knowledge - Biotechnology Networks in the Atlantic Area"
National University of Ireland, Galway - August 25th, 2011
Venue: Information Technology Building, Room 125 (IT125)
“Networks as Knowledge ‐ Biotechnology Networks in the Atlantic Area” is an all‐day event organised by Marine Biotechnology Ireland ‐ an initiative led by the Marine Institute, and the Socio‐Economic Marine Research Unit in NUI Galway, with the support of the European INTERREG project ShareBiotech and in association with the Centre for Innovation and Structural Change in NUI Galway.
The event will present the results of a recent survey on the needs and barriers to biotech R&D in Ireland and discuss our position in the wider Atlantic area. Invited speakers from Ireland, France and the UK will describe their experiences in the creation, management and utilisation of shared skills and infrastructures in the life sciences sector. The objectives are to learn how these situations can contribute to innovation, and what models are available for a network of knowledge in marine biotechnology R&D.
Warmly invited to attend are managers of public and private technological platforms and research centres, development agents, policy makers and representatives of national SMEs operating in the marine biotech space.
The event is free of charge and will include a tour of one of the technological core facilities (TCF) on campus. Registration closes on Tuesday 23rd August at 5pm.
Registration is now closed for this event.
