5th University - Business Forum

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

The 5th University - Business Forum will take place in in Brussels, Belgium on the 4th and 5th of June 2013. The event will be organized by the Education and Culture-Department of the European Comission.

The Forum will bring together 300 high-level representatives from; relevant European organisations and associations; Higher Education Institutions; large companies; SME’s, and national, regional and local authorities from Europe and beyond. It will be a unique opportunity to share and discuss your experiences, compare examples of good practice, to network and to learn from each other. The previous forums were highly successful and all stakeholders welcomed this initiative from the Commission. All participants were convinced that better dialogue and closer cooperation between universities and business can make a substantial and positive contribution to Europe’s efforts to make our education and training systems more effective and efficient, thereby supporting our economic and social development.

The Forum will start in the morning on the 4th of June and finish at 1pm on the 5th. The mornings of the 4th and 5th  June will feature plenary sessions, whereas the afternoon of the  4th will be organised into 4 parallel breakout sessions.

This year’s Forum will address topics related to entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial university; change and impact; people and innovation as well as taking a closer look at some of the main current trends in University-Business Cooperation.
