MNBS Projects-Innovation Sessions
The objective of the sessions is to identify and share best practices on the innovation process. How to Identify and address the key issues (e.g. stakeholders requirements and supply chain, key competitive value, manufacturing and industrialisation, regulation and standardisation) for making an MNBS project an innovation success story is the challenge of the cluster, even more now that we enter in a new era of "integrated" research & innovation towards Horizon 2020, the new 7 years Framework Program. A panel discussion will allow the exchange of ideas among the audience, summarise the contributions and draw conclusions.
