Linking research and industry

The world of research and industry too often do speak different languages and have different goals.
Our knowledge and technology brokers are keen to overturn the conventional paradigms of business and research to create an ecosystem of entrepreneurial culture within firms and research institutions.

Science and Business integration

While the academic and research communities remain focused at times on the scientific production, on the other hand the short-term industry objectives affect the achievement of technological and scientific state-of-the-art. These constraints strongly affect the firms’ business competitiveness on the medium and long term.
Our knowledge and technology brokers come from research careers in the world top ranked universities, as well as from management positions in the main firms of our target sectors. This cross-cutting expertise is a unique asset for Science2Business projects aiming to achieve business objectives through innovation.
