Business to research matchmaking event

The matchmaking event took place in Goleniow. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together the world of business and the world of science. Participants were public universities and entrepreneurs from the area of the Goleniowski Industrial Park.

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.

The organizers plan to arrange next B2R meetings in different cities of the Western Pomerania.
