Tech with a purpose, emerging technologies & enabling innovation eco-system

We are pleased to welcome the IASP European Division Workshop 2019 in Linköping, Sweden. IASP is the global network of science parks and areas of innovation. It brings together professionals who manage science, technology, and research parks and promotes the growth and internationalization of its members. Ms Lena Miranda, CEO Science Park Mjärdevi will host the event. The workshop provides opportunities for networking and exchange of ideas with colleagues in an informal and enjoyable setting. Participants will have the opportunity to meet international IASP members and experts and discuss relevant topics to strengthen the position of their STP or area of innovation.

As a preamble to the IASP World Conference that will discuss the 4th Industrial Revolution we have chosen the exciting theme of “Tech with a purpose, emerging technologies & enabling innovation eco-system.” We look forward to engaging in discussions about how Europe and our industry can make a real contribution to the development of Science parks and areas of innovations, and thereby the world. And also to create a base for even more in-depth discussions at the upcoming world conference about the 4th Industrial Revolution.
