The FCRi promotes the Science & Business Forum, which works with professionals and organisations to present a wide range of research projects to targeted business sectors and markets.
The forum underlines the commitment of the FCRi to market-focused science, encouraging links between science and industry and fostering entrepreneurial synergies between researchers and the business world.
Our aim is to create connections between cutting-edge participants from both sides, including entrepreneurs, investors, scientists and academics.
The core of the forum is a series of short presentations about business opportunities. These give a voice to everyone from consolidated companies and start-ups selected by experts to academic projects with real-world potential.
The message is this: today’s research trends are tomorrow’s bottom line, and they should be given a forum.
Key aims of the Science & Business Forum:
- To raise awareness of research market potential for entrepreneurs in Catalonia.
- To enhance entrepreneurs’ perceptions regarding the excellence of Catalan research.
- To connect the private sector with investment potential and public research groups and/or science-based entrepreneurial projects.
