On Thursday the 4th, April 2019, CIVITTA partners delivered a business and science matchmaking event together with Vilnius Gediminas technical university. We had 45 participants in total (both scientists and business representatives). 3 scientists presented their success stories on collaborating with businesses, and we presented funding opportunities for business and science collaboration projects. The feedback we had from the businesses is that they were very interested in collaborating with scientists and that there’s a lack of such events so they were thankful. University representatives said that the number on scientists taking part in this event was exceptionally high when comparing to their usual events of such type.
