News from the Project
Do you want to improve the way RIs and industry interact? 

Participate in our surveys!
We are now conducting two surveys in the form of questionnaires, addressing Industry Liaison and Contact Officers, located respectively at governmental agencies and research infrastructures, with the purpose to map the key elements to enact the envisaged collaborative framework between the ESFRI RIs and industry players to bring technological innovation about. Your participation is extremely valuable, as the results will be used to develop an effective strategy and methodology to establish, train and empower an effective pan-European network of coordinated RI ILOs and ICOs; one that will truly take RI-industry dialogues to a new level! 

The questionnaires will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and will be available until the 15th of July. Please visit our website to read more about the survey and to take part in the activity. You can also access the questionnaires directly by following the links below: 
Thank you very much for your contribution and helping to shape the future relations between RIs and Industry and the sustainability of strong EU business and innovation sectors!

BSBF2021 Webinars

The BSBF 1st Webinar took place on Tuesday, the 23rd of June and focused on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Big Science Market. The event was organised by CDTI who is also organising and hosting BSBF2021 in Granda on 28 September - 1 October.
