    A unique opportunity to share, learn and network

    From June 20th to 22nd 2018, UIIN will bring you a whole new set of knowledge and experiences when it comes to university-industry interaction. In June, more than 500 university leaders, practitioners, CEOs, policymakers and academics will visit Europe’s hub for some of the world's leading knowledge institutions, some of the largest financial institutions, and home to some of the fastest growing start-ups in the world. This breeding ground for innovation and entrepreneurship provides the perfect environment for the next UIIN conference. Right in the heart of London we will bring you with insights into managing your strategic partnerships, and the 'how-to' when it comes to developing more engaged & entrepreneurial universities and driving innovation in your region.

    We look forward to welcoming you to London.
