German – Latinamerican Conference on Knowledge and Technology Transfer & Biotechnology and Life Science; Potsdam, June 1 - 4
International cooperation becomes increasingly important for economic development. In particular emerging economies from Latin America provide a huge potential for the future. Thus, the scientific progress is an essential driving force for the improvement of living conditions and the increase in wealth in our society. Only through targeted future-oriented research and innovation strategies at all educational and political levels, science can be advanced through sustainable concepts.
The event aims to perform and establish a benchmarking on a scientific level to illuminate innovation and technology transfer concepts of the participating countries with experts inside of Germany and Latin America.
Scientist from Latin America are invited to discuss together with experts from German institutions about programs and modules which appear to be suitable for future solid collaborations.
The interest especially in the field of technology and knowledge transfer is enormous. The Workshop to take up the existing connections and will foster and concretisize collaborations e.g. through exchange programs or regularly performed events. To make this realisable, it is necessary to know the conditions which will require a successful transfer of scientific results into the application.
