The Life Science Growth House is UiO's innovation unit for life sciences, health and technology.
The Growth House invites researchers and students to innovation hangouts – the new meeting place for academia and industry, including researchers at Oslo University Hospital. With this meeting place the Growth House wants to inspire, give self-confidence and knowledge about the innovation process, help researchers and students to build networks and facilitate collaboration between academia and industry.
The topic of the first innovation hangout in Oslo Science Park 21 April is: Tomorrow's treatment – advancing innovations from academia to industry in cancer and beyond. At this hangout we will have an inspirational talk and a role model talk and then matchmaking with between academia and companies that are members of Oslo Cancer Cluster. The companies might for example share their experience on the transition from academia to industry or tell if they are open to collaboration, have plans to expand and if so, what competence they are looking for, or if they are open to hire interns.
