2nd Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum: “University and Venture: Are we ready?”

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at 13:45-17:30 | University of Cyprus, Nicosia

The global venture ecosystem in the 21st century is changing rapidly, and inevitably, the role of academia must change as well. The nature of this change is not yet fully understood – universities will remain the centers for research, teaching, and impact in the coming decades, yet they must find a way to cope with the exponential growth of academic knowledge and integrate into the venture ecosystem, which is continuously transforming as well.

This year the Forum aims to examine the relationship between University and Venture. Among the speakers:

  • Ms. Nava Swersky Sofer, Managing Director of IDCBeyond at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya (Israel)
  • Mr. Nathan Zeldes, Research Affiliate/CVR Managing Editor at the Coller Institute of Venture, Tel Aviv University (Israel)
  • Dr. Vladi Dvoyris, Director of Venture Community at the Coller Institute of Venture, Tel Aviv University (Israel)
  • Ms. Marsia Trillidou, Scientific Officer at the Research Promotion Foundation (RPF), Nicosia, Cyprus
