Conference proceedings 2024 header

With “Shaping the Future of Talent and Innovation” as this year’s motto, we convened at the 2024 UIIN Conference in Madrid, Spain, from May 27th to 29th. This dynamic event underscored our shared resilience and dedication to advancing knowledge exchange and collaboration.

Throughout the conference, it was evident that the drive for innovation transcends boundaries. We explored a myriad of themes, from the development of open innovation cultures and innovative ecosystems to leveraging business partnerships for student entrepreneurship. Key discussions included the role of global partnerships in establishing local innovation ecosystems, the impact of entrepreneurship education in secondary schools, and the transformation of research valorisation in universities.

Our sessions also delved into the intricacies of recognising prior learning, the significance of lifelong learning, and the development of industry engagement initiatives aimed at underserved entrepreneurs. We examined tools and models for innovation ecosystem tracking and knowledge valorisation, highlighting their role in strengthening governance and supporting SMEs.

These proceedings reflect the vibrant exchange of ideas and experiences that define our community. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the authors, reviewers, and participants for their invaluable contributions to this enriching dialogue.
