Brokerage meeting took place in Stargard Szczecinski. The purpose of the meeting was to bring togheter the world of business and the world of science. Participants of the event were all public and one private university from the West Pomerania region and entrepreneurs – for example such big companies like Bridgestone or Cargotec.
Discussions focused on the possibility of establishing research and development projects between the Maritime University of Szczecin and different companies. Each meeting last 15 minutes, then participants changed partners and opened discussions again. Brokerage events have many advantages – in a short time we can obtain commercial expectations of many potential partners. It would’t be possible on a ordinary conference.
Brokerage meeting in Stargardzie Szczecinskim was the first event of this kind in Poland, when universities go to investors with proposals of cooperation. Participants included 13 entrepreneurs, 38 scientists from 6 universities and representatives of regional authorities.
The organizers plan to arrange next B2R meetings in different cities of the Western Pomerania.
Today, in the Restaurant of the Ladoga we took part on a business breakfast, which was attended by scientific staff of the Maritime University of Szczecin (MUS) and maritime industry from Szczecin. The meeting was carried in a very good atmosphere. Scientific staff and business people want to keep good relations and cooperate in creating their own B&R projects.
Business breakfast are very popular at different countries. The meeting was organized by the Centre for Maritime Technology Transfer.
