KnowING IPR - save the date: Sustainability and innovation in the Romanian entrepreneurial ecosystem


Sustainability and innovation in the Romanian entrepreneurial ecosystem

31st of March 2021, 16:00 PM


The Innovation Café is an initiative of the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI) started in 2013 which aims to create a flexible networking framework, facilitating the exchange of experience and dialogue between entrepreneurs, investors, innovators and other actors active in the innovative entrepreneurial ecosystem in Romania.

During its 12th edition that will take place online on March 31st, at 16.00 (Bucharest time), an important part of the discussions will focus on the catalyst of innovation, the intellectual property rights*. The event will bring together the most important actors of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and will start a debate on the role of innovation in entrepreneurship and the ways in which the Romanian ecosystem can be strengthened. The participants and the speakers alike get an overview of the current situation in the innovative ecosystem, thus being better informed and able to tackle aspects of the strategic research planning, technological transfer and commercialization of innovation.

As a starting point for the debates, UEFISCDI will launch the report “Sustainability and innovation in the Romanian entrepreneurial ecosystem. An exploratory study”, that will present the Romania entrepreneurial ecosystem as it is seen through the perspective of those who contribute to its development and by comparison with other national ecosystems.

*The event is powered by Knowing IPR project (co-funded by European Union funds ERDF, IPA,ENI) which aims to enable higher education institutions (HEIs) and companies active in the automotive sector and automotive value chain to develop their IPR skills, to enhance their IPR based cooperation, to have access to IPR open data and to use IPR knowledge to advance their work and solve specific challenges.
