09: The governance of applied research: responsibilities, independence and resources

Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Applied research institutions (RTO s) predominantly engage in ‘target-oriented research’, developing concrete research applications for industrial enterprises. Their forms of financing and thematic flexibility free them from industrial constraints. Within the European research area RTO s play an important bridge-building role between universities and industry. Experts and decision-makers from research and industry will discuss well-tried strategies and financing models as well as visions for the future and background scenarios.
