The Best Technology Transfer Conference in the Balkans … Period 

1st November 2018 | Belgrade, SERBIA

More Info


Over the past few years, we've been working in the Balkans with industry, academia as well as national authorities. We've been doing the same in other parts of the world and we recognised that there is some great research, industry desperately seeking new technologies, but it takes experience to bring these two worlds together to establish a win-win collaboration.

That's why we are bringing internationally recognised experts who have been this road already to share their experience.
