Cooperation between universities and the private sector is mutually beneficial

On March 14, in Banská Bystrica, our researcher Dr. Branislav Hruška took part in an event called “Practice for the university, solutions for companies 5.0“, which was organized by Slovak Investment and trade development agency (SARIO).  The goal of this project was to support the establishment of cooperation between companies and the academic environment, to bring new partnerships, practice opportunities for students, contacts and positive publicity.

Speakers from different fields of environment (academic, private, European institutions, and others), informed about various projects that are already running, shared their experiences from functioning practice and and were looking for solutions to improve mutual cooperation with industry. As part of the matchmaking event, B2B negotiations were held, during which the participants had the opportunity to communicate directly with competent representatives of industry and academic institutions and discuss more detailed information regarding cooperation.
