Lars“To me the UIIN conference is actually all about getting inspired – through the informal talks with my peers and friends, practitioner presentations and the keynotes from internationally renowned thoughts leaders. Each year I go home with a precise idea of what I and my organization should do better to enhance university-industry interaction. It is not surprising that the UIIN conference has become the largest conference on university-industry interaction worldwide.”

Lars Frolund

Alfredo“I find the University-Industry Interaction Conference interesting for several reasons, but it is the opportunity to attend, in a single event, academic and practitioner’s presentations which makes it a unique conference. As member of the academic community, I especially value the insights provided by companies about their strategies to interact with universities.”

Irene“The UIIN conference is the most important international event in my annual calendar. As a platform to share and learn from both theory and practice it is of significant value, yet nevertheless, the opportunity to meet and network with others operating in boundary spanning roles is the main benefit.”
