About the HighTech Europe Networking Event

The food processing network of excellence HighTech Europe aims at enhancing communication and cooperation between research and industry for a better implementation of innovations in the food market. Therefore, new ways and tools to overcome barriers in knowledge and technology transfer will be developed and tested. One attempt of a novel implementation route was the HighTech Europe Knowledge Auction. The feedback of several researchers and journalists showed a great interest in such an event. The idea of developing new possibilities to connect researchers and industry representatives was highly welcome. However, experiences have shown that companies were more sceptic than researchers to the idea of an auction for knowledge.

Therefore, instead of running a Knowledge Auction a Networking Event at interpack took place.

During the Networking Event the knowledge owners presented their innovative technologies and interested industrials used the possibility to contact the researchers during following networking session.
