Currently, business, more than ever, requires cutting-edge technology solutions, as well as research and development. Modern businesses collaborate with scientists to address this demand. In the panel discussion, we will explore the answers to the following questions:

  • What are the instruments for bridging the gap between business and science?

  • What are the R&D experiences of Ukrainian and foreign businesses? 

  • What opportunities can research centers and higher education institutions provide for business?

  • How should business demands be considered in the process of training future professionals?
