Responsible Partnering between Research and Business: Progress and Challenges in Effective Collaboration and Knowledge and Technology Transfer

Special Conference, Lisbon, 3-4 December 2007

This Special Conference aimed to take stock of the current effectiveness of R&D collaboration and knowledge and technology transfer involving research and industry; assess how well recommended good practices are working; and map out where further improvements are required and how these can be achieved.

The Conference was co-organised by four associations, EUA, EIRMA, EARTO and ProTon Europe, who developed and promoted Responsible Partnering, and brought together key players with strategic and operational responsibilities for the effectiveness of research collaborations. Held in Lisbon during the Portuguese presidency of the European Union, the event’s findings are expected to benefit all stakeholders, including national governments and the European Commission.
