Are you an academic scientist looking for industrial partners to collaborate with in translational research? Do you work in a company and could your research benefit from academic involvement? Or are you building a broader partnership involving public and private players to realise your collective ambitions? Then do join us in this workshop, in which we will explore what makes such collaborations work and how public funding instruments could be helpful.

In an interactive setting we will analyse strategies and cases taken from the Dutch Top Sectors Life Sciences & Health and Agri&Food, and look into international examples and possibilities to access European funding. What are the lessons learned in building strategic public-private partnerships and what makes them successful? Please come and both learn and share your own experiences!
