Need for speed in innovation

Event Description

‘Need for speed in innovation’ is the theme of the first industrial meetup of the EIT Digital Doctoral School is hosting in 2019. The theme reflects on the need of the industry to implement new research on emerging technologies as good and as fast as possible. Industrial doctorates are one way of implementing new research in a direct manner. The first meetup will be held in Budapest on 6 June 2019.

The meetup will bring together doctoral students, industry professionals and academics to discuss the needs of the industry for innovation and how to respond to this need.
