Spin-Off and Startups open new horizons for economic growth.
OTTAWA, Oct. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - An international Round Table entitled SPIN-OFF AND STARTUPS: INNOVATION PARTNERSHIPS BETWEEN UNIVERSITIES, RESEARCHERS, INSTITUTIONS AND INDUSTRY will take place in Ottawa on October 2. The session will seek to create a turning point of economic innovation through creation of a competitive and collaborative model among institutions, researchers, universities and venture capitalists. This roundtable will feature the participation of dozens of the top innovation leaders from Italy and Canada in the private sector, universities and government. International collaboration is fundamental in order to leverage existing resources and energies, and to share knowledge and experiences toward a single objective which would be difficult for an individual company or researcher to achieve in isolation. The Round Table will provide the chance for all participants to meet and explore ways to create new innovation strategies, accelerate research collaborations and look for new funding sources through international partnerships.
The Embassy of Italy and the Public Policy Forum are pleased to invite journalists to an advance media briefing on October 1st 2012 at 10.30 a.m. in the offices of the Italian Embassy at 275, Slater Street, 21st floor. This private discussion with the media will be led by Ambassador Meloni and Public Policy Forum President and CEO David Mitchell. Delicious Italian refreshments will be served.
The Round Table will take place the next day, October 2nd 2012, at 8.30 a.m. at Carleton University, River Conference Room, 1125 Colonel By Drive.
